My other idea was indeed waiting for the next years GPUs. However seeing how those are going to be the latest and greatest, aren't they going to be pretty expensive, while also pushing down the price of the previous generation?

This is true but this coming line of GPUs may be different compared to previous generations. Previously the price drop of the older gen cards would be enough of a value for performance after the price drop compared to the newer gen cards to justify buying the older cards. The upcoming generation of cards might actually have more performance per price than the current gen of gpu cards. Of course this is speculation because we don't know the performance or price of the new cards and we don't know what the price cut will be on the current cards.

All speculation based on VR pushing graphics forward and NVIDIA anticipating this move with the High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2) and NV-Link (5 to 12 times faster than PCIE 3.0) and general performance increase.

In the end it comes down to what you feel your level of need/want is for the technology. Will everything run on a GTX 950, yes. How well it will run is another matter all together and if you have to ask yourself will it run your current games because that's all that matters then go for it. Once you find out that a new super awesome game is coming out end of 2016 get ready to shell out more money for another card. GTX 970 is a safer bet if you're worried about running Fall Out 4 and aren't looking any further forward. If you're worried about VR, the GTX 970 will be able to run it but much like the GTX 950 get ready to replace it soon after. Don't bother with a GTX 980 unless you're getting the GTX 980Ti and the Titan X are just plain over priced.

Thanks for having this here.    MY PC died Friday and in the process of buying a new one.  The one one was 5 years old and it had better days.

So far I got:

Board: GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-UD3H LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K Devilís Canyon Quad-Core 4.0 GHz LGA 1150 BX80646I74790K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600
Power: EVGA 220-G2-0750-XR 750w
RAM: 16g Ripjaw X Series 240 pin DDR3 1600
Vid: EVGA GTX960
Still looking at cases.  I was thinking the DIYPC Cuboid-R.  I have hear the positive reviews on Cube cases.   Figure I would try it out.  Besides, this one on New Egg is on sale.

We'll see how it build out.

Well the best deal I could find on the GTX 970 was a 280$ price on Newegg. Then 35$ shipping. Then it would have to be shipped from the UK to me. Maybe next year when the new models come out.

Actually, as it seems the EVGA B-stock has pretty good deals!

But it usually sells out insanely fast so you might  want to set up email notifications. GTX 970 for 250$? HELL YES!

Freaking sweet.  Thought about setting up a duel card now that I have a board that can run it.

Thanks for the heads up

Slightly miffed that there a ~80$ difference between the B-stock GTX 970s in the EU and US stores though.
