    In your opinion, what really is the sweet spot for an x60-series card?

    £120-£150. By all means have high end cards, and ridiculous halo products above them, but I think more than £150 is too much for the majority of people.

    Re: QOTW: How much would you pay for a GeForce GTX 960?

    Have to say maximum should be around the £155 mark, not everyone can afford the higher end cards. Only reason I have the GTX570 which is nigh on 4 years old soon I only got it as came into a bit of money and wife allowed the spend on a higher end card. Normally though the £150 mark is the sweet spot highest I will pay for a card.

    Re: QOTW: How much would you pay for a GeForce GTX 960?

    I paid £160 for my GTX460 which is right up at the top end of what I would stump up, and that is for the factory overclock and double the usual RAM. My usual price is more like £130.

    I hope it is in that ballpark, I could do with an upgrade (blimey, is that really 4 1/2 years old!, it has done me well).

    Re: QOTW: How much would you pay for a GeForce GTX 960?

    I've spent out on the last couple of GPU's I've got (not the highest option tho!) but normally its £150-200 range. Hell my GTX460 lasted me years, what a card that was

    On topic... Would hope for the £160 range with this. Could get some mates to upgrade and join in me new games at that sort of price

    Re: QOTW: How much would you pay for a GeForce GTX 960?

    I paid £100 for my gtx760. It was second hand of course!

    But since it appears to be a similar performaning product to the gtx 760 per the 3d mark score then I wouldn't pay more than £140 for it. Since 760's will price drop in an attempt to clear stock that is where I'd spend my money at the moment.

    Re: QOTW: How much would you pay for a GeForce GTX 960?

    Depending on its performance in SLI, Nvidia could be competing with themselves if they priced it as low as £150, half the price of a top-end 970. I would guess a price range from £175 - £225, similar to the current price of the 760, R9 285 or R9 280x, and topping out less than the cheapest R9 290.

    Unless of course it is faster than the R9 290 in which case all bets are off.

    Re: QOTW: How much would you pay for a GeForce GTX 960?

    I'd like to see it launch at £160, with a Ti part coming in at £200.

    The 600 series blew that out of the water with the 660Ti launching at £240. No wonder it didn't fare as well as it's predecessors.

    Re: QOTW: How much would you pay for a GeForce GTX 960?

    I would pay 179$ (£118). I think I would be right on par with R9 285 in terms of performance.

    Biggest issue I see for Nvidia just now is FreeSync.

    Re: QOTW: How much would you pay for a GeForce GTX 960?

    I would be happy to pay up to £150 for the overclocked edition.

    I'm probably going to go for this graphics card as I've expressed in the other thread but I hope they haven't crippled it too much.

    Does anyone have the pricing of the GTX460/560/760 on release date in the UK for comparison purposes?

    The GTX760 is really good value right now second hand and has been at £130 brand new from places like Amazon and Ebuyer as special offers.

    Re: QOTW: How much would you pay for a GeForce GTX 960?

    (GTX960 performance / GTX970 performance) * (Avg GTX970 retail price).

    970 is upper high end and 960 is lower high end and should cost proportional to performance IMHO. This should be true for most mid-high end cards, the halo product (980) will always be priced disproportionately because of the chip binning and yields etc and for the low end products the other BOM and costs (board, packing, shipping) becomes a far greater part of the cost than the GPU itself so the performance won't scale with cost.

    Re: QOTW: How much would you pay for a GeForce GTX 960?

    dunno what are those prices, i got my MSI 760 for 165 pounds 1,5 years ago... Since there still is no benchmark hard to tell, but since some seem to hint its about same performance as 760 then no more than 180 pounds seems like ok price

    Re: QOTW: How much would you pay for a GeForce GTX 960?

    Going by the leaked performance, the 960 is about 71% faster than the 660 (100% faster than a 750Ti). This puts it in 770 territory, but only drawing 120 W unlike the 195 W of a 770, so not bad at all. As to how much I'd pay... £150-200.

    Less than £150. Not saying that the card is worth less, but that is the price i would pay for a mid level card

    Re: QOTW: How much would you pay for a GeForce GTX 960?

    Agree with the responses so far, about £150 is good for me. Got my MSI 760 for £144 and average prices were around £150-£160. I was initially planning on getting the 750 Ti until I managed to make headway in my budget for a 760. The x70 series is just too expensive, wont be buying the 960 on release, I'll wait until I need it when the price has dropped (assuming I replaced this generation at all since the build is only 2 months old with this 760)
