Right now the 960 is properly the best bang for the bug card you can get. It's inexpensive and performs great. It has good overclocking potential and most of the editions are very silent. (the GPU are not getting hot easily and manufacturers still gives it a good cooler, so the fans don't have to spin that fast)
So yeah, I see no reason not to buy it.

BTW: please start using periods... you know those dots at the end of a sentence.
It's easier to read your post that way.

Well my next question is, do I just need to open my tower and swap out the videos cards and that's it or is there more?

Yeah thats all that you need to do under the hood then you just need to head to Nvidia's or AMD's (Depending on what card you choose)website and download the latest drivers and install them..

I was working on a very small budget when I got the parts for my pc since I wasn't working much. AMD FX 8320 eight core with 8gig ram Nvidia GTX650. I'm not looking for a power house graphics card at the moment just somthing better then what I got till I'm in a better position to get somthing better along the way, I'm also looking to get an i7 when I'm in the position to.
