i am waiting on pricing of 1050ti for possible upgrade of my 750ti!
#2
1050ti will be sub £170 - more fps for your £
#3
1050ti better than 1060?

Will 1060 run BF1 in ultra on 1080p monitor at 60hz? Sorry to be a cock but I am really wanting to go for 1060 but only if it has the ability to run bf1 at very high/ultra.

Yes, it should easily. See guru3D for benchmarks:

I have this card and run BF1 at 1440p 60Hz Ultra. TAA not MSAA mind you. I get a few odd drops to 50fps at worst in the campaign, but multi-player so far seems solid.

Thanks dude, you sold me. I have a nice 1080p 23 inch monitor but sit quite close so bigger 1440 screens are too big. My 670 power edition can run the game at 60fps on medium, if I go to high texture with everything else on medium or off the FPS drops to low 30s. Game looks great but unplayable.

OK which 1060 do you recommend? I saw a warranty table on a website looking at the various brands, warranty and RMA locations. UK based means fast replacement.

1060 smashes 1050ti

The GTX 1050 Ti is likely to perform very similarly to a GTX 960 and my guess is that a basic 1050 Ti will cost about £130-£140. This is about 60% of the performance of a GTX 1060 for about 60% of the price if you factor in the memory(4GB) as opposed to 3GB and 6GB. The power consumption seems to be borderline 75W so you will only be able to overclock if it has a PCIe power connector. The GTX 1050(2GB) is probably clearly under 75W and is unlikely to need a power connector and is a more direct upgrade from the 750 Ti for those with a cheapo power supply with no PCIe connector.

As for this Gigabyte 1060. It seems a reasonanble price but I think it's one of the worse card designs on the market. The VRM's aren't in contact with the heatsink and the backplate doesn't have any venting holes directly behind the GPU chip, so it will trap the heat in. This card will likely have some thermal issues if overclocked even though it might still be quiet.

I recommend RX 470 4GB especially since AMD is dropping price.

While the RX 470 will perform better than a GTX 1050 Ti and will likely be better performance/pound, they are not in the same power consumption range. If his/her power supply or case thermals is not a concern then the RX 470 would certainly be the better upgrade option, otherwise the 1050 Ti/1050 will be his/her best bet.

SO WHICH is the best 1060 6gb to buy?

thanks but I got a refurbished i5 small form factor business pc for 200 quid or so with built in viglen psu. so i love the 65w or so 750ti and next stop will be 1050ti i think. the rx 460 is the only one I can use. keep looking for a refurbished tower for my son but most seem to be small form factor eg quad core q6600 q8400 for 60 to 80 quid on ebay.

Evga sc seems to be the best regarded and is the one I'm holding out for. Hoping it appears for 240 again at some stage, then I'll bite. I was previously set on the sapphire rx480 but for my build and likely game type, should be better suited to 1060.

Having owned both the EVGA SC and the Gigabyte Mini ITX OC, I recommend the latter. It's the same form factor, but has a custom PCB and runs a good 8-9 degrees cooler than the SC whilst being just as quiet. Sadly, there's very little information about it online. I blind bought it to replace my faulty SC as Flubbit offered me a really good price (£216), and I've been delighted with it.

Is there a major difference between the normal size and small mini cards,I saw something where the mini card is a bit slower but boosts to the same when it needs too.

EDIT there is a new GPU BIOS update for the EVGA card which seems to reduce temps and fan noise. I really want to buy a 1060 ASAP (today or Wed) but am getting more confused.

Full size or small size? EVGA or Gigabyte (Evga have best feedback for RMA and warranty)?

There's no major difference. The 1060 is a very small, power-efficient GPU that doesn't need much cooling. The single-fan cards handle it just fine whilst still being very quiet. They overclock every bit as well as the larger cards too, around the 2.1GHz mark. There's really no reason to buy something incredibly overbuilt like the Gigabyte Xtreme Gaming, although it's not going to hurt anything other than your wallet if you have a large case.

Regarding the the BIOS update for the EVGA SC, it actually raises temperatures because it relaxes the fan curve, but it also adds the ability for the fans to stop at idle. Newly-produced cards should come with this BIOS out of the box, though mine didn't a couple of months ago and I had to flash it myself. The Gigabyte ITX OC also stops the fan at idle, and as I say runs a good bit cooler under load.

As for Gigabyte vs EVGA, both have UK RMA centres and both offer three year warranties. EVGA's service is very good. Never used Gigabyte's myself, but I've heard they're also pretty quick. The only other company with a UK repair base is KFA2 (located in Wales), so I'd consider one of those three brands, personally. It'll speed things up if anything ever goes wrong.
