Looks a good deal, at this price. Been looking and cannot get 1060 cheaper new.

How have they not updated the photo on this one yet? Unless I'm missing something that's the plastic shroud compact card again, not the fancy metal version (check the part numbers).
Cheaper than CEX second hand! What a surprise, not!
£10.50 delivery for a graphics card is a joke though..

No it isn't when it is insured, signed-for courier delivery.

Yes it is, When Even I could send a graphics card signed for and insured for less than that.
You can dress it up anyway you want, And try to defend it all you like, But when a company wants 8 quid P&P for 8 gig of memory, You really need to hold your hands up and say fair doo's mate, They are taking the michael and trying claw back some of there so called savings.
If buying for Gaming , then 3GB isn't the way to go, 4GB is the bare minimum in 2018.
I WONDERED when somebody would biatch about 3 gig. Its fine if you drop settings a notch in the worst offending games, if you can get it £170 delivered its gonna please most players.
Personally I would get a used 970 from ebay,they are now down to ~ £95, similar performance,half a gig more vram. Less for a mini I expect.

but power consumption is too high on old cards.The saving you get will be paid in electricity bills in few years.

I still can't get my head around why people still go on so much about power use of graphics cards, So a 970 uses more power, I'll tell you what, Don't boil your kettle for a whole day, Bingo, We have now offset the extra power usage.
What about if you take the day off work, Do you say 'I better not turn on the telly or boil the kettle because normally I would be at work and I have not factored in the extra electricity usage for today' .
We all have our average electricity usage which never really changes, One thing uses more, another doesn't, Your at home when you thought you be out, Your out when you thought you would be in, I normally have ten cups of coffee a day, But today I only had two, It all evens out to your average, Which never really changes.

This is complete PANTS, the maxwell architecture GTX 970 uses about 60 watts more than a 1060,worst case scenario. (Thats about 0.6 pence / hour or call it 4 quid / year).
There is no 'FEW YEARS ' with Nvidia graphics cards :

GTX 780; was fortunes.
Ya buy a 970 now because it is good value and move on after or you just wilt.
A month ago it was £140. (mining caused issues with gamers everywhere)
Anybody looks at Ncrappier long term is a f@ffing noob.
