    good stuff for 150$, but it gonna cost more in Europe therefore canceling it's value immediately.

    the max i would pay for such a card is 150$, but even that feels too much.

    what a price ???
    the GTX950 cost only 10 buck less than the GTX960, and 20 more than the R7 370
    ???

    Something wrong in there.

    Here in Portugal it costs 199€, now that´s what i call "lulz". Gotta love the lulz. The gtx 960 is only 20/30€ more expensive, so despite the value overcloked, these puppies won´t shine unless a price cut is in the works.

    Seems every year it passes the harware gets ever so more expensive regardless of segment. In five years then what, 300€ for this segment and 1000€ for the single gpu top dog? For gods sake!

    Over here the cheapest 960 is even cheaper than the cheapest 950 at the moment.

    Yeah here the cheapest 950 is 187.5€(MSI GEFORCE GTX950 OC, the little white single fan) and the cheapest 960 is 216.15€(ASUS GEFORCE GTX960 TURBO OC, the white one with what i guess is some sort of a reference cooler), i mean...why??

    They need a 50€ difference between the two for people to consider the 950. Only someone with no knowledge or reference will buy the 950, at least with the current price. Drink a coffe or two less during a week and there you have it, you can buy a stronger gpu, lest we forget that whatever gpu you buy will have to serve you well for at least months, maybe some years so what´s the excuse?

    I´d be interested in hearing about prices in other contries because at least here from what i wrote above the situation is just plain bizarre.

    $40 difference here in the states. That's not including the $20 MIR on most 960's. The 960 was a fail card IMO. The 960 should be renamed the 950Ti and it would be better.

    950 at $129
    950Ti at $159

    Outside the 970 and 980ti this nvidia gen has been so boring and unexciting, performance improvements are nothing to write home about, can´t handle peasant textures and barely can play in peasant resolutions. :sleep2:

    Palit did a really nice job here, but the price is a fail on NVIDIA's part.
