This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I would of course recommend buying a better/more expensive graphics card if you can afford it but for a tight budget and/or a more compact pc build, this seems like a pretty decent price to me. Using the code "PRIZE20" brings the price of this item from ebuyer's ebay store down to £125.50.

Previous best prices appear to be £137.98 via the ebuyer website and £139.99 via Amazon Prime.

Much like via ebuyer's own website, this listing on ebay also comes with a 5 year warranty (if you register online within 28 days).

Just doesn't seem worth it with the amount of RX 570, 580 and 590 deals coming out of the wordwork for less than 140

They literally seem to go £1 for % these days. 570 is -12% for same price, 580 is +7% for +£15 and 590 is +15% for £25, so team green is a decent price to be fair...

RX 580 is the same price or lower than this. Extra VRAM in today's games is also very useful to achieve higher settings - especially textures.

This is a decent price if you prefer Nvidia's software etc. Heat!

I'm green and these are awful prices, sooner get a 580 at this price
3 gigabytes of V-ramn just isn't enough. Most semi modern games I play use between 3&4 gig at 1080p.
This would cripple performance. Better off getting a rx580 for similar money.
You won't find a decent 580 for similar money though, unless you go down the second hand route. Runs WAY hotter, uses an extra 55 Watts of power at least for whatever number of hours per day and if you don't cough up for a decent one, you'll have temps problems, artefacts etc etc? Most decent brand / well cooled 580s are in the £169 bracket still... That's £50 difference, in which case you are nearly in 1440p territory, money-wise. All of these level cards are on their last legs, so paying much more for tiny performance increases of 10%-15% is all a terrible waste of money. Go with the bottom end where you get best bang for your buck, use it for 12 months and sell it on when next gen comes down a touch in price. Put the £50 to one side to put towards it...

Have you been watching these deals the last few days? I just picked up an RX 580 8GB for my little brothers gaming rig for £135. The AMD range of 570 and 580 is the best bang for buck on the market..We are talking 5GB! Of extra VRAM for a tenner. I'm sorry but the 1060 3GB version was D.O.A. It was already dated before it even landed on the scene and this card can't hold a candle to the RX series in price or performance. 3GB of VRAM has not been enough to invest in gaming for the last 5 years.

Wont let me post for some reason. CCL online have the GTS overclocked 8gb 580 for 145 on their main website, and I got it from their Ebay store with a discount with 136.

Wasnt hard to find.

I cant find the exact HUKD deal because I followed it through a comment onto their Ebay store. Brand new, paid £135.99.

Even at 145 without the sale the card is still way better than the 1060.
So £20 more money for less than 20% increase in performance? I refer you to my original comment, how they add small % increases for the requisite number of ££££'s? If you are going to go close to £150, then a 1060 6gb is £150 these days and out-performs a 580.... apples with apples as they say?

Talking about relative performance increase on budget cards is mostly pointless since anything under 4GB is deemed worthless. It is after all nearly 2020.

The point about the 1060 6GB version, sure they benchmark about the same but you're still losing 2 GB of VRAM which means that there a handful of titles you just can't play at max settings even in 1080p such as AC Origins and Odyssey, RE2, Red Dead 2.. etc etc. Having the 8GB VRAM is definitely a bigger win for the RX580 vs anything with less. FPS don't mean anything if you cant push ultra settings otherwise you might as well buy a 1050Ti and turn every game to low.

Great price for a GTX 1060 but that 3GB makes this one of those cards where the actual performance is massively higher than the VRAM available, even the 1050 Ti has 4GB. 3GB hobbles too much to make good use of all that power. If you want a 1060, may as well get the 6GB one and then you're getting close to the 1660 price. Or just get an RX 570/580 instead - it'll run hotter and use a bit more power but unless you use it full load 24/7 it won't bother most people; the 4GB ones are cheap and 8GB are more common too.

This is the 3gb version so has less Cuda cores than the 6gb 1060 version so is 10% slower and about equal to 570 and not 12% faster.

Everyone is only talking about the less vRAM which will hardly affect any titles. Only having 90% of the Cuda cores that the 6gb version has will affect every title.

3GB isn't enough for modern titles. At 1080p, anything less than 4 will limit graphical settings, and if you want the card to last into 2020, I wouldn't recommend anything under 6gb.
Not worth it in my view. Near new RX580s 8GB, which are on level with the GTX1060 6GB, can be head for cheaper.

£20 more is nothing though when you are talking about gaming, any modern game is likely going to cost you more. It is the difference though between having games that are playable and having games that are not. If you get a 3gb 1060 you'll struggle to get above 30fps on your minimum FPS at 1080p high quality settings playing stuff like AC Odyssey.
If you like Nvidia, by all means buy their stuff, but I wouldn't recommend a card with 3GB V-RAM.

Tell that to RE2 that tried to eat up 18GB of Vram at 1440p on my rig earlier this year.

Not entirely true, if you need more ram than the card has it will start using the DDR3/4 on the PC rather than the DDR5 on the card. It will hurt FPS. People aren't buying 8GB cards for no reason.

Not sure where I said that running out vRAM won't affect performance???

There is a difference between what a game reserves and what a game actually uses hardware unboxed did a very informative video about actual vRAM usage some time ago.
I feel like there's a lot of bias in favour of the Rx 580 deals, which are making this cold.

This card is especially good for space limitations in your PC's case. Along with other Nvidia cards, it's also good if you maybe bought a pre-built PC, and don't want to buy a new power supply. Because Nvidia cards usually run cooler and require less power.

For out-right perform to dollar, AMD cards usually take the cake. Especially considering this is an Gtx 1060, and not an Rtx (or is still Gtx?) 1660.

This is a good little card for those specific niches, and perhaps you just like personally like small efficient hardware. However, I would still recommend looking at AMD integrated graphics, or a smaller model of some newer cards, such as Nvidia's 1660.

Oh, and of course this is going to run games on lower settings, and especially with it's 3gb Vram, unlike an Rx 580.
