Ooh, good price. I have had the asus from amazon (posted here a couple of weeks ago) on order, might order this one too and see which one shows up first.

Still having difficulty deciding between the 1060 and the 480...

If some would come in stock, it might be easier to decide...

I wanted the MSI version of whatever card, but since they're looking £300 regardless, they can kiss my cheeks. It'll be Sapphire Nitro 480 or ??? 1060.

They are very much neck and neck. Not much in it and trading blows in various titles.
Vulkan gives the AMD cards a big boost.

It's a hard choice and I suppose it's down to the other little differences between them that may swing it one way or the other.
Warranty, cooler, temps, noise, overclockability, software/drivers, incorporated technologies (gsync/freesync).

The overclockability of the 1060 would swing it for me personally.

Eh? The 1060 is significantly ahead of the 8GB 480 in every single title except for outliers like Ashes of the Singularity - but you can't use those outliers as proof that the 480 is better in DX12 games, because Rise of the Tomb Raider has DX12 and async compute, and the 1060 is ahead there, too. And that's all on the 480's home turf of using Windows with a high-end CPU. Lower the CPU or move to SteamOS or Linux and the 480 drops far, far behind.

I'm not sure where you're getting your information, but to put it extremely simply, the 480 is almost equivalent to a GTX 970 (sometimes better DX12 performance, more VRAM, but higher power consumption and needs Windows + good CPU), while the 1060 is almost bang-on with the GTX 980, except lower power consumption.

Nvidia allows you to stream games from PC to your tv if you have a android box via moonlight. Couch gaming ftw!

What happened with scan?

Well I ended up buying an Asus gtx 1060 duel to match my white PC build after weeks of debating over the Rx 480 or gtx 1060. Hope I made the right choice, I've been with the red team since the ATI days.

what's the difference between this and the g1 gaming?

Slight overclock on the g1 gaming. Definitely not worth paying the extra money for when overclocking is so easy and the gtx 1060 overclocks like a beast.

It's just what I remember seeing at launch.
Gamers Nexus Review Example

They're close in a lot of titles especially at 1080p but the 1060 does have a considerable lead in several like GTA and Mordor and does come ahead at higher resolutions.

The 1060 is certainly the one to go for.

It pretty much is neck and neck, as far as I can see at 1080 anyway. I'm more inclined by the 480 for the 8GB and the potential it could have with Vulkan and DX12, but I can't imagine the 1060 struggling any time soon either.

I have no allegiance to either team, so am legitimately trying to ascertain the best option and cut through the fanboyisms :(

PCPer does a good job of generating performance comparison numbers: http://www.pcper.com/reviews/Graphics-Cards/GeForce-GTX-1060-6GB-Review-GP106-Starting-249

You can also get a fairly clear comparison across more games at TechPowerUp: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_1060/26.html

Maybe we just have different interpretations of "neck-and-neck", of course! :{

Interestingly, and hopefully this doesn't complicate your decision, Digitalfoundry ran an interesting test on a 4GB XFX and MSI Frozr RX 470 custom card and found, specifically when overclocked, that they gave a fairly impressive pound-to-performance ratio, running at a few frames higher fps than the 8GB RX 480 reference card, with the advantage of a much quieter cooler than the reference model. I am disappointed at the UK pricing of the new AMD and Nvidia cards, so provided other reviewers are getting similar scores do the digitalfoundry team, I would probably save a bit of money by buying an RX 470 custom card, overclocking it and, though I have had mixed results with crossfire in the past, possibly adding a second card at a later date for crossfire, taking note of the advantages and disadvantages that crossfire brings over a single card solution.

I think the answer to your question is, depending on which reviewer you ask, it's not a completely straightforward but that the custom GTX 1060 cards, in most of the reviews that I have watched/read, seems the better choice over the RX 480 8GB custom cards in most but not all benchrmarked games, for now, with some reviewers saying the RX 480 might be a better choice at a later date, future-proofing wise, for the reasons widely discussed. Plus, I suppose crossfire is an option with the RX 480, however mixed the stability results.

Though UK pricing is frustrating, I've voted Hot on this one because I can't find it cheaper, here, even if I am not personally tempted at that price.

Reviews on new egg reckon this card suffers from coil whine. I suspect the chip won't over clock as well, probably gaming one cards that don't make the grade.

After watching countless videos and reading many articles I've decided to go for aftermarket 480 over the gtx 960.. This is a good price and it's nice to see really good cards becoming more affordable.

Yeah pretty much... I originally planned for a 1070 but when the pricing was announced it was simply too much for me to justify. I could buy it, but it's overkill for my 1080/60fps needs.

I don't really have an interest in SLI and would prefer to get a cooler card (so 1060 there) but also want one that is going to last at least a good few years and, potentially, the 480 could nose out ahead in the nearer future.

At this stage, I don't think I can go wrong with either card and so then just becomes a matter of preference... Of which I have none :P Soooo... whichever comes in stock first will win?

I just bought this card for £230 ;) off flubit and it will be arriving this week unlike ebuyer who are out of stock.I was going to buy a zotac 1060 AMP but this seems a better deal not only in price but in the extras like the Back plate as well lighting which the zotac misses out on.
It's as cheap as a zotac mini but with the added advantage of whisper quiet dual fans even under load and a back plate.
Gigabyte also do well with there warranty's and are one of the few company's with a uk RMA base.

Cool story Bro, might want to check the reviews on your second link.

Decent For the money- IF you dont mind screeching
8/1/2016 1:06:07 PM
Pros: Good price to performance
Runs almost all games 1080p 60fps
Runs cool
Rgb lighting

Cons: Has pretty bad coil whine when running at high loads
Gigabyte's website is a mess, and they have 3 different utilities for GPUS making it very confusing to know what to download
Can't find utility to change RGB lighting color/mode

I already read them all as well as reading amazon US reviews and watching youtube reviews and funnily enough all of them did not mention a coil whining problem so you should hardly call one incident on New egg a manufacturing Wide problem .
On amazon there's was not a single bad review from people who bought them and all the negative ones where from people complaining about the price as its selling over the RRP.

As to downloading software i can only assume they must be a bit simple as it took me less than a minute to navigate through there website to the GTX 1060 6G and download there utility app (only 1 to choose from) and then go to the nvidia site and download the latest driver.

P.S people mite take you more seriously if you drop the BRO as even when i lived in Washington D.C ,Tampa Florida and Charleston west Virginia you will find that only yanks slinging dope on street corners and kids tend to refer to people with bro and even then that was some time ago so your a bit out of date.

Now im off to test my 3x 3tb Western Digital My Book external hard drives that just got delivered yesterday.

I've received this card today and holy crap what an upgrade it is to my radeon 3450 :D
i got mine yesterday from flubit for £230 and it arrived 2 days early too boot. It replaced a MSI gaming r9 280 and has doubled my frame rate or better in every game.

If any one is on the fence it's worth the £228 NOW from Flubit ,you just have to enroll in the 15 day free ELITE trial to get ebuyer deals.

Awesome, £228 is a fantastic deal for this card. I am a flubit elite member but bought a Rx 480 4gb for £200 some I'm pretty happy.
