I bought a EVGA GTX 970 SSC 4GB DDR5 for £130 delivered from eBay :)

Well done, but sorry I've run out of medals until the new year.

I hate GPU shopping. Start with a 1050:

"Yeah, but the Ti is a lot more powerful and it's only an extra £25. More than worth the extra."

"But the Ti is only £40 cheaper than the 1060 3GB and is about 50% more powerful. It's a bargain!"

"Ooh the 1060 6GB is on offer..."

Would this be an upgrade from a EVGA GTX 760 2GB?

Yes, IMO these will be good for a couple of years @ 1080p.

Good price, I would go for the gigabyte mini 1060 tho which is £10 more

OK, Let me put this out:

for £209 YOU CANNOT GET A BETTER GTX 1060 CARD IN NVIDIA.

Of course you can get:
* GTX 1060 for £188 BUT that's with 3GB RAM.
* GTX 1050 for £145 BUT that's with 4GB RAM and its not 1060.

At this price and specs This card is a steal.


If you can spare £50 more, and would love to have AMD, get this instead: https://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-RX-480-GAMING-8G/dp/B01JGQBMB4/ref=sr_1_2?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1482323281&sr=1-2&keywords=RX

Considerably superior. It is twice as fast in many games and it has three times the memory, important for new titles. Good upgrade

I bought one too but the FTW version, I've now been researching up about them and they say they have a lot of coil whine noise? Does yours have it?

Glad you said that, I got that model 480 a few of weeks back for 180 odd with Civ6, a deal was posted on here which should have been hotter.

For 1080p gaming grab the 1060 6GB or RX 480 8GB.
For 1440p inc ultrawide get a 980ti/1070.
For 4K get a 1080 or better yet wait for the 1080 ti next month.

Simples ;)

This is a graphics card designed to fit in a desktop size computer. It will not fit into any laptop. Most laptop computers with decent graphics have their graphics processor soldered onto the motherboard inside permanently and cannot be upgraded.

41 quid more for a card that scores lower in nearly every metric available?

https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_1060_Gaming_X/24.html

Unless you are dedicating your rig to Doom, there is very little reason to spend 40quid more, apart from already owning a FreeSync monitor.

Not to mention, the 1060 is more power efficient. But that's minor compared to the simple fact the 1060 outperforms the 480 8gb.

Way out of budget.

It's for a budget HTPC build. The rest has come in pretty much on budget (completed at £185). But my original target of spending ~£70 on a used GPU has gone out the window as cards like the 7970 just don't seem like a sensible buy.

I added an extra £50 to the budget, then realised that the 1050 is a dumb buy compared to the Ti (only slightly over budget). In turn, the 1060 3GB absolutely trounces the 1050Ti. It's those two cards I'm really weighing up, with target prices of £125 and £170 respectively.

This is a great deal for a 1060 6GB, but it's overkill for the intended purpose and too far over budget - the total bill would have risen from £250 to £400. I'll probably wind up with a 1050Ti TBH, taking the overall cost to ~£310.

I would prefer a full-size card for a few quid more tbh.

Is there any negatives with having a mini card over the full sized ones?

in theory they're louder since they have fewer/smaller fans, but the 1060 is not that hot, so it's not really a big problem for this wattage

Not strictly true but seems pretty impractical. There are cheaper versions that came out a couple of years ago from those Chinese websites.
#31
What are the dimensions of this card? And does it need a direct power connection from the PSU?

I've got a Streacom DB4 on order and wondered if it's likely to be compatible? Haven't built a desktop PC in years!

@Picard123 It should fit, it's only a mini. 174mm long. It does need it's own supply from the PSU. It's a 6 pin connector. Your case is 260mm deep so I can't see any problems.

Would this be an upgrade from a EVGA GTX 760 2GB?

I've just done this same upgrade and honestly haven't noticed a huge improvement yes frame-rates are much higher but they were high anyway and I seem to have some compatibility problems with COD black ops III and Ghosts where the sniper reticle lags when quick scoping, had to stick the old card back in just so that I wasn't humiliated in multiplayer. Maybe I need to upgrade my 4 year old Z77 mobo and Win7.

Here is your statement, again, in case you don't understand the implication.

If you can spare £50 more, and would love to have AMD, get this instead

That is, without much doubt, a strong implication that the card is better.

If you can afford 50 more quid, get this instead....

Perhaps you meant: If you don't want an NVIDIA card... But your wording would lead people to conclude you are endorsing that card over the Nvidia one.
