Hmm seems like Scan is following, I suspect Amazon will follow shortly, I'll keep waiting.

Or you could just buy the Pailt GTX 1060 6GB JetStream for £196.99, and not bother with the cash back? Link HERE!

I'd rather these 1060 deals just disappear. Want one but really can't justify it for how much I PC game these days X)

Is that one of their 2 slot designs or a 2.5 one like most of them?
Edit: It would appear while its not strictly 2.5 slot, it does overreach enough to interfere with the next slot sadly.

Gotta be 2.5 slot looking at the pictures - HERE!

I don't have any negative experience with Palit but surely its better to buy MSI than Palit.

Bigger graphics card maker than Asus (link) and as you pointed out very reliable.

In fact by the looks of things, Palit is now the biggest single graphics card manufacturer in the world that ship outside of China, beating MSI, Asustek, GIgabyte, etc.

Apples to Apples, the Palit Jetstream cards are the objectively better ones - they're cooler and run quieter than a lot of other cards. However the size concerns are what cause issues. Someone like me with an expansion card two slots below the GPU run into issues.

The only palit card from memory that reviews were a bit meh about was the "Dual" variant - that said my brother owns one of those and its absolutely fine.

The MSI card is overclocked to a higher speed than the Palit.

Thanks! Im a bit noob with OC (nor do i particularly want to tinker tbh) but MSI one is pre OC'd, Can I do the same set up with Palit with no fuss?
I think I can fit the 2.5 slot case.. so additional cooling is much welcomed.

Well the GTX 1060 has Nvidia GPU Boost, which auto clocks the cards for you, the better the cooler the better GPU Boost 3.0 will work. Most decent GTX 1060's will hit over 2000Mhz in an averagely cooled case, and sometimes quite a bit more.

So just leave GPU boost on, and play your game, if you configure Fraps, or Afterburner to show real time clock speed then you'll see the core speed going up/down.

Reviews seem to suggest the Palit can overclock really well - though in real world terms I have no idea what that means. My understanding was 1060's overclock roughly the same across the board.

Palit = More tweaking but better cooling potential (and no cashback fathe)
MSI = Plug 'n play and normal sized.

Graphics card overclocking these days is a piece of pish these days though - pick your program of choice, bump the power limit a bit and start increasing the clock slowly making sure to test of stability as you go. I'm sure you could find numbers for an easy quick and dirty overclock though if you looked.


This card has an extra year warranty over the pallit.

This card has an extra year warranty over the pallit, worth taking into consideration.

Is it worth upgrading to a 1060 from a 970, or am I being silly?

I wouldn't.

dose the fans on this run all the time or when its hot like other cards?

joshp

I wouldn't.



Yeah, I guess the increase isn't worth it. Will probably wait until I can afford a DDR4 system.

Bought this from Scan and installed yesterday. Absolutely brilliant.

Just when it gets over 60 apparently

cmon amazon, 199£ lets goooo, although I think nvidia will drop prices for their entire range when AMD announces vega pricing at computex so I think I'll wait a couple weeks.
