I want to pay about £180 but I'll probably gave as soon as it breaks £200, slowly creeping down and this is the best price I've seen so far.

This is nice and small, no mention of power inputs etc presume 1x 6pin ? can you access all 6gb of memory or only 5.5Gb ?

What a silly question, of course you can access it all!

Yeah same but I want a Formula One car and looking to pay 50p, will wait till prices come down.

Bite the bullet dude, I upgraded from a 680gtx and its an awesome card.

Eventually they will go down to £200 unlike your formula 1.

Pair it with a 6600K and you'll be playing anything on 1080p 60+fps

are these less powerful than the full size cards and would my i5 3570k still be a good match?

Same power as a larger card but it's only a single-fan model so it might run marginally hotter or louder. I've gone for a dual-fan model but at this price this would be tempting.

The mini cards are the same as the larger ones, just with a single fan. Personally I would prefer a smaller card.
It's a great match for an i5, especially a K version.

You could wait, but then you'll miss out on weeks of gaming & a free magazine ;)

Any experts out there know if you should use the supplied drivers disk or would the nvidia/AMD drivers (from online) be ok? Would you potentially lose some of the overclocking which may have been carried out?

It's just that I don't have a CDROM drive connected anymore. Thanks in advance.

I'd never use the drivers that come on the CD they will always be out of date. You'll get better performance direct from nvidia

No you (almost) never want to use the drivers on the DVD.
If you think about, logically the ones on the disc are quite out-of-date by the time the card makes it through the retail supply chain.

What a silly question, of course you can access it all!



Not that silly a question given the 970 issue!

Unless the access in bold was that the 970 could access it all but some at a lower speed?

Starting to see 1060's & 1070's coming on amazon warehouse managed to get a Gigabyte Nvidia GTX 1060 WF2 6GB just now for £168 after the 20% discount.

This is the 1060 that I had for a while. Runs at just under 70 degrees under full load whilst being almost inaudible. It's a much better card than the similar EVGA SC model, with a superior cooler that also takes care of the VRMs and memory (which are left completely bare on the EVGA card).

Gigabyte also have UK-based RMA just like EVGA.

Good deal, can't see anything close to that at the moment though, all are used and way above rrp starting at £270 before discount. What condition was it in and have you looked at the warranty situation?

Condition: Used - Very Good - The item may come repackaged. All purchases eligible for Amazon customer service and a 30-day return policy.

We shall see how it looks when it arrives.

Should I go for this or the amd Rx 480 8gb at £200 (MSI version)? I like how I get civ 6 if I go for the 480, are there any free games with this?

A close comparison, but I'd go with the 1060. Sources:

Plus this is the OC edition.

Sorry, no free games with the 1060. There was a couple of free games with the 1070 but maybe that offer has finished.
If you can afford it, the 1070 is a great card, but it looks like the Curry PC World ebay deal (GTX1070 for £339.99) has ended. They're about £350+ elsewhere.

Don't suppose anyone knows if a low profile twin slot version is coming? The 1050ti is my back up plan but hoping for a bit more oomph over my 750ti.

I have this card, got it when they were £209 (with code) from Laptops Direct a few weeks back, think its great, why pay for twin fans when this does the job just as well for less.

You can get a 6-pin converter from ebay, but a dedicated rail is of course better.
Also eBuyer or OCUK are good sites to pick up decent PSUs with dedicated 12V rails.

UPDATE: The special deal has ended on this card & the price is now £218.92 delivered.
It's still the cheapest GTX 1060 6gb I know of.

I looked at the website and it is £235 which makes it £215 with which deal that looks like it is still on although looking at Foxden post it also suggest that it would normally be £218
Does anyone know how well this company does with support? i can't see mention of warranty but i know Gigabyte give 3 years on GPU's

Plus postage and the £1 magazine subscription, poundshopper. I don't know about warranty or support, I guess the manufacturer warranty is all you get, but isn't a one year warranty standard for online shops?

How was it, there's one on there now for £216 then the current offer is -£30 so £186, but that doesn't seem a good enough deal to be worth it.

Just spend the extra £30 and get an extra 2 year warranty
