I've had a quick scan and can't find this card for a cheaper or similar price!

An insight from Guru 3D

  • GeForce GTX 1080 offers just over 9 TFLOP/s Single-precision floating point performance
  • GeForce GTX 1070 offers just over 6 TFLOP/s Single-precision floating point performance
  • GeForce GTX 1060 offers just over 4 TFLOP/s Single-precision floating point performance
If you combine the specs you can already tell that the 1060 will be a terrific card in the 1080P domain, and even at monitor resolutions of 2560x1440 this card should hold up really well with GTA-V, Total War Warhammer, The Division and many other game hip 'n trendy titles.
In this review we'll have a look at the GeForce GTX 1060 6GT OC edition from MSI. The graphics card is the budget model, but still manages to impress. The temperature of this card will sit at 65 degrees C under full load, and just remains incredibly silent. Next to that the card has been factory tweaked for you to a boost clock of 1759 MHz. The card is fitted with just a 6-pin power connector but we'll still pass the 2.0 GHz marker when we tweak this feisty unit.

I paid 216 for this on amazon... it's now up to 329! So as a time machine is not available I'd call this a good deal.. heat added from me

I wish I could build a time machine just to buy an 8gb stick of ram at a decent price!!! That's not too selfish is it???

If you put things into prospective, then yes it is.

Option 1. Build a time machine to purchase a cheap memory stick.
Option 2. Build a time machine to better humanity.

Your choice.
I’ve been looking at the GTX1060 3gb, currently have an ageing GTX770, Intel i5 3.6ghz and 8gb ram, can I change to 1060 without having to upgrade anything else with good results

Yes.
I still run a Phenom II 955 16gb RAM and upgraded to a used GTX970 for £140 and it plays everything great so far at 1080 using mostly high setting. No issues with my two main games The Division and GR Wildlands. Will easily last me another year or 2. Maybe also upgrade your system RAM to at least 16gb.
I was looking at either the 1060 6gb or the used GTX970. Felt the used 970 was a better option. Similar performance and £100 cheaper.
I love my 1060, Absolutely stella card for 1080P 60fps. Crushes all modern titles Battlefront 2, Pub G, GTAV Battlefield 1 etc. Deffo worth this price tag. Can even handle 1440P at 60 FPS on high on most games, After seeing how the XBOX ONE X is performing with checker boarding 4k images and only targeting 30FPS this card is easily up to the same challenge with its performance but your probably get 4K 30fps native. example this card can run forza 7 4k native at 60fps alongside xbox one x this card can run shadow of war 4k 30fps with similar settings as xbox one x.

xbox one x owns this card.... don't talk wet.

yes ofcourse it does, completely owns it.... not really, the xbox one could of owned this card if it had the cpu clocks to back up the teraflops on its gpu but it doesn't therefore it will only ever be a 4k kinda 30fps if your lucky console. what they should of done is stick a decent new cpu in the bloody thing to get the most out of its very good gpu power. don't get all salty chap digital foundrys findings on the xbox one show that its non performing as it was touted. I am totally going to buy one after a year or two because im hoping they just start making 1080p games run at 60 fps which is what they should of touted the console as because in reality that's where it sits.
it does... it shouldn't be compared to a pc because it in a pc... all the components are obviously like a pc but they run completely differently.

I cant explain it very well but an early interview with Phil went into better detail.

Xbox One X is not really faster than a GTX1060 6GB with a decent overclock. If you want 4K and 30FPS then you will get similar results and settings. But nobody really thinks 4K 30FPS is very desirable so the same card like this will do 1080p and 60FPS on the same game with max settings comfortably.

It doesn't.

It has more potential video memory which makes it easier to push high resolution textures (at a steep cost to performance) but at 1080 or 1440 a decent 1060 will perform as well or better than the X.

Thanks for the offer I currently have 8GB CORSAIR DDR4 3000MHz but i've heard it's best to keep ram to the same model!

PUBG looks poop cos the devs made it that way nothing to do with the X... Assassins creed/Gears 4 Forza and halo 5 look stunning.
