Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 2GB – where can I get this card for from your printed £130 inc VAT price? Can’t see it on Overclockers UK.
Sadly, it looks like it’s no longer available at that price, which is always an issue with magazine reviews – we can only print the price that’s correct when we go to press, and the price of components often fluctuates. The best price I can find at the moment for a GTX 960 card is £147 inc VAT at
Thanks @CustomPCMag such an honor!
It’s a pleasure – that was a great build!
Your review of the EK Predator 240 says it fits LGA775 sockets, but the spec on the manufacturer’s site doesn’t. Do you know something we don’t?
It is indeed LGA115x and LGA2011only on Intel – the reference to LGA775 was a mistake. Sorry about that!
I’m surprised that the 390X with 8GB of RAM did so poorly in your tests against 4GB and 6GB cards at 4K. Thanks for saving us a lot of time testing so thoroughly.
We’ve yet to see a significant advantage of more than 4GB of memory on a graphics card, even at 4K. The usual benefits of having more memory are being able to apply more in the way of features such as anti-aliasing and, as you say, not falling apart at higher resolutions. However, running games at 4K is currently so graphically demanding that the GPU usually becomes the limiting factor on a high-end card before the amount of memory – the speed of the memory, as shown by AMD’s 4GB Fury cards, is a much bigger factor.
People often assume that more memory always equates to superior performance, but in the real world, this isn’t always the case. There will be a time when 8GB of memory is necessary on a graphics card, but we’re not there yet.
Say it isn’t so! @CustomPCMag Is there no mince pie megatest this year? ;( ;(
Haha, I was reading the latest issue earlier & thought ‘cool, nearly time for the Xmas mince pie review.’ It says ‘Xmas is here’ :)
Yes! It’s that time of year again, where I refer to your recommendations and put on weight! You guys always make good choices :-)
I’m glad we can be of such good service at Christmas, and yes, the annual mince pie megatest is now here – turn to p30 to find out which pies are worth your cash!
With m.2 SSDs like the 950 Pro, can I use them in my laptop’s mSATA slots, assuming physical compatibility?
Sadly not, mSATA and M.2 use completely different connectors, but your question is completely understandable, as M.2 is a confusing shambles at the moment. We’ve gone into more detail about M.2 and next-generation storage standards in this issue on p42.
