Hell yeah the 960 is the most overpriced gpu below the k and quadro level. Nvidia has got to learn their lesson when it comes to pricing i swear!!! I heard someone use the description "pure genius" when they spoke of Nvidia. Yeah pure genius is an industrial strength product you mix with other chemicals in a bathroom to make LSD in the toilet. That must be what they mean because Nvidia is in the process of giving the mid and lower tier market over to AMD with their crappy pricing. Why hasn't AMD released products to compete with the 1080 and 1070 simple 98% of pc gamers have no intention of buying gpu's in that price range. The 480 and 470 are both cheaper than the 970 and 1060 even in the case of their 8GB versions. Their performance is equal give or take less than 10%. Their i said it.
Got to take rx 470.
