Hi guys, I have settled on a GTX 1060. I have found half decent prices for two models/brands and was wondering, in your opinion which one is 'better'. I know very little about GPU's so was looking for your input. Thanks very much.

The first is this Gigabyte GTX 1060; http://www.ebuyer.com/753209-gigabyte-geforce-gtx-1060-6g-graphics-card-ebuyer-com-gv-n1060d5-6gd-1-0?mkwid=sWA3N2WiH_dc&pcrid=51630194939&pkw=&pmt=&gclid=CjwKEAjw3Nq9BRCw8OD6s4eI5HASJABsfCIa6oHaUozq6_lwBmTyzisMa0M_CcHy8g62VTewEsSzfBoCJWnw_wcB

The second is this Asus GTX 1060; https://www.scan.co.uk/products/asus-geforce-gtx-1060-dual-6gb-gddr5-vr-ready-graphics-card-1280-core-1506mhz-gpu-1708mhz-boost?utm_source=google+shopping&utm_medium=cpc&gclid=CjwKEAjw3Nq9BRCw8OD6s4eI5HASJABsfCIaBAZK0_uWrBRStKoXcRifNOVUgNvTWWMotsTEZruXWBoC0kXw_wcB

Don't be off put by the price difference. I can get both for around 235. Thanks very much.

From my own experiences, I have had a problem with a Gigabyte card (artifacts at stock clocks, and random freezes). Asus on the other hand, never had a problem with, if you can afford it the Strix 1060 has a triple fan cooler setup and is better for custom overclocking or just running quieter at factory OC speeds.
I'd just stay away from the stock cooler options; firstly for the loud fan and relatively high temps compared to a good cooler, and secondly because they use extension wiring from the PCB to the PCIE socket so adding a custom or water cooler is not simple or pretty if you were that way inclined.

I got a Palit for £250 from ebuyer with a decent heatpipe cooler and twin fans which is next to silent at pretty much stock clocks, I'd suggest one of these if they're cheaper now ;)
