Looking at a new card. Is the 960 series ok for FSX? Or should I save some more for a 970? Trying not to break the bank. Is there a big difference? Thinking of P3D sim too.

I can recommend the Gigabyte Gaming 970. For flight simming in general I'd say the more power you can afford the better.

I'd not recommend anything from Gigabyte after my experiences with them.

 

Bought a GTX560 Ti from them in the USA. Within a short time, I kept getting freeze-ups on the screen with a top-to-bottom pattern of little squares and bleached colours. Would then have to re-boot. Sent it back to their Repair Center in Ca. in the original box and packaging complete as I had purchased from the reseller in Vegas. Received the card back in a plain black box minus everything. Same problems as before.

 

I've had 2 GPUS from EVGA,----a GTX460 SE and the current GTX970------and never had any issues.

 

Caveat emptor!

Forget the 960 and get the EVGA 970 or better yet the 980 if you can afford it. I bought a 970 and now wish I bought the 980.

I've got the EVGA 970 ACX 2.0, its OK for P3D but Im gonna get a 980TI to help with the FPS in the clouds. I game at 1440p and play many other titles other then P3D. The 970 @ 1080p is a really great card for the price.
