I was just wondering what would be the difference between a Nvidia GTX980m 8gb versus a GTX1060 6gb. Is there much? I won't be doing heavy gaming but want a decent card to cope with what I do do

Is it a GTX 980M or a GTX 980? There's quite a big difference in performance.

A GTX 980M should be similar to a GTX 1060 in performance, although the latter will use less power and generate less heat.

Both graphics chips (they're not "cards" if we're talking about mobile imlementations :p) should be readily able to handle most games that you might want to throw at them, being very much "decent cards".

What monitor screen Res you using?

Yes, it is a 980m. Thanks

Dude I thought the 980 was very similar to the 1070. I would go with that. People often think newer is better but the 980 is still a powerful card.

1060 is much faster, approx 40 to 50%
