Time for a very small GTX 960?

Right on the heels of our post that lists the Best Deals from Newegg’s Pre-Black Friday ‘Deal Leak’ Sale (ending Nov. 16th), Newegg has snuck in another sale, this one only lasting a little over 24 hours.

Introducing the 11/11 sale, going on until 11:59 PM Pacific Time on Nov. 12th. In other words, you have roughly 24 hours from this posting to snag any deals in this sale.

We see two deals in this sale worth noting:

Graphics Card

  • EVGA GTX 960 2GB: Current price: $170 (normal price: $190, for a discount of $20, or 10%). This 960 is only 6.8 inches, letting it easily fit in a mini ITX build.

Screen

  • Samsung S24D300H 24″: Current price: $130 w/ promo code EMCKKBK22 (normal price: $220, for a discount of $90, or 41%). A decent 1080p screen with mega infinity contrast ratio (as opposed to mini infinity).

GTX 950 Launched at $160, Added to Very Good Tier

GTX 950

This week, NVIDIA launched the smallest member of its Maxwell GPU family, the GTX 950. Launch prices range from $160 to $170, depending on manufacturer, landing the 950 firmly in the ‘mid-tier’ GPU category.

After examining early reviews, we have added the new card to the Very Good tier on the U.S. parts list. Looking at its competition, it beats the AMD’s $150 R7 370 and matches the performance of AMD’s slightly pricier R7 270X.
