I have a gaming laptop that I want to be good for the next 5 years that supports the GTX 960 for all the latest and greatest PC games as the minimum requirement. Will they most likely still support the GTX 960 as the minimum?

If ur talking about 960 and not 960m the it should last for the rest of this console generation.

Most likely a 960m. It really comes down to what you expect from your games. If you're willing to lower to say 900p or 720p to maintain high level special effects, or keep it at 1080p but drop them to a mix of medium and low, then yes - you'll be able to play the latest AAA games for a couple of years.

As for games released now and previously, you'll be fine.

You mean 960m, which is essentially a 750ti. You'll have to drop resolution significantly and you'll be running low settings in the more demanding games.

if you mean the 960m then it's already struggling tbh

5 years? Probably not. It's already 3 years old and it was barely an improvement over the 760, which is close to minimum requirements these days. I'd give it 2-3. System requirements generally only support stuff that's up to 4-6 years old. That said 2011-2013 era hardware is targetted for minimum requirements, which is why we see a lot of GTX 600/700 series minimum requirements. By 2022, you're probably gonna be seeing the 1060 being the minimum requirement. If not volta on some newer games.
