It's decent midrange card. There is no 960 ti. The alternative is the r9 380 which is a little faster but also uses more power.

buy a 290. It's much better then a 960 meets a 970 in most games but used it'll cost less. Best price v performance card.

instead of the gtx 960 get the r9 380 instead. its faster than a gtx 960 being cheaper at the same time

depends, high to ultra settings at what resolution 720p/1080p/1440p/4k? If you want 4k you're gonna have to look at dual 980 ti's/fury x's/titan x's if you want to push a game and still get close to 60fps. 980's/ 390x if you want 1440p at high ultra. 1080p i'd look at 970/390/290 at about high maybe ultra settings in some games.

Thats my resolution 1600*900. Also some people say that both gtx 960 and r9 380 have similar performance so get what is cheap. What do you think about this...THANKS...

If you're gonna pay 970 money you wanna get a 390. Why because it'll outperform a 970 in most games. Save nvidia optimized ones. Thats if you don't plan on overclockin with overclocking i'd still lean towards a 390. But now a 970 could potentially overclock better as it does use less power and thus less heat. But overclocking isn't guaranteed, so pure performance 390. If you're spending 960 money go with a 290. It performs just as well as a 970 or close to in most games and you can get it for around 200 usd. Used or otherwise on ebay.
