Too anemic in VRAM, and lots of older cards compare to it favorably in metrics that actually matter. For a new card, stretching to that 970 will make for a better bet.

Good looks

I love the looks of the MSI cards. I'd love to see what two would do in SLI.

Thanks for the review.

My problem with the GTX 960 is that they are only a hundred or so dollars cheaper then the GTX 970 here in Australia. Why would I pay $350-$400 for a 960 when I can pick up a 970 for $450-$550? The 970 is miles ahead in performance and within the same power draw as the 960, i.e. if your powersupply can handle having a 960 in your computer then a 970 will be fine...
