It is more fun testing at the high end and the number of MOBA gamers here at PCPer could be described as very sparse, to say the least. Perhaps you are a MOBA gamer looking to play on a 1080p screen and have less than $200 to invest in a GPU and feel that Ryan somehow missed a benchmark that is important to you. One of the dozens of reviews linked to below are likely to have covered that game or specific feature which you are looking for. They also represent the gamut of cards available at launch from a wide variety of vendors, both stock and overclocked models. If you just want a quick refresher on the specifications and what has happened to the pricing on already released models, The Tech Report has handy tables for you to reference here.
"For most of this summer, much of the excitement in the GPU market has been focused on pricey, high-end products like the Radeon Fury and the GeForce GTX 980 Ti. Today, Nvidia is turning the spotlight back on more affordable graphics cards with the introduction of the GeForce GTX 950, a $159.99 offering that promises to handle the latest games reasonably well at the everyman's resolution of 1080p."

Why does NVIDIA still use DVI
Why does NVIDIA still use DVI ports on graphics cards? I would hope they would switch to display port and include adaptors in the box. What’s your thoughts?

Its good to have DVI, HDMI, and display port in the video card.
It’s very easy to adapt from
It’s very easy to adapt from Displayport to any other medium. Chances are if you’re buying a new monitor, you’re willing to buy a simple cheap DP to DVI/HDMI cable for $5-$10. In the long run, DP is a better choice.
Quick answer? Monitors tend
Quick answer? Monitors tend to hang around for a long time, normally several generations of upgrades for every other component. With a card aimed at the 1080p/modest budget market it would be foolish to remove a insainly common and still perfectly usable option. AND on the adapter issue, the average person hates adapters. I dont know why, but i’ve heard “Well I could of gotten an adapter and used my old one, but fuck it, it’s better to just get a new one that was made to work,” on just about everything electronic from CB radios to phone docks
I agree monitors tend to out
I agree monitors tend to out live the computer(s) in which it is connected too. I despise adapters too, but on a desktop PC I really don’t mind. Setup once and forget about the cables. Plus, Display cables don’t have those annoying thumb screws. Personally, I would rather have the ability to drive multiple higher res monitors than one old sub 1200p display. That’s Just My Opinion.
I understand your point, but
I understand your point, but it is easy to adapt DP or miniDP to hdmi or DVI. Plus, with multiple DP connections you can run more than two monitors. NVIDIA could include a pair of adaptors in the box and old display would still work.
