So what do you guys think ?? Is it worth getting the 6gb version over the 3gb ??

Looks like 6GB is an overkill for my needs, thank you. :)

GTX 1060 3gb - very good price/perfomacne
David Galvan (4 days ago)
it's either 3gb or a 1070 no need to waste 100$ more when you can just save for an msrp 1070 which completely destroys both in 4k

Price wise buy the 3gb used, when u will need to upgrade sell the 3gb and add little bit of money and buy the 6gb or a better card after all ;) For now 3gb version kicks ass

With the game ROTTR, I wonder if it would go below 30 fps if it only had 8 GB of ram and 3 GB of vram

Wow i am surprised how good 3gb version is. In my country 6gb version is 80-100$ more expensive then 3gb version,people are litteraly paying that money just to use ultra and high textures in some games. Why bother with 6gb version when you can save up 70-90$ more and buy 1070

Very well optimised. Even with GTX 1060 at 4K resolution you can get stable 60FPS.

Avinash Mahabirsingh (18 days ago)
I'm very confused. ROTTR and GTAV both had damn near the same performance from both cards, But they both used more VRAM and system RAM on the 6gb side, but only providing a 5-8fps increase. Is the memory on the 3gb card more efficient or something? Because even in games where the VRAM isn't the limiting factor, the VRAM usage on the 6gb card was still higher for no real performance benefit, as well as using much more system RAM. Look at 8:48 , literally the exact same FPS, but the 6gb is using a gig more VRAM and a gig more system memory too, For why?! I'm confused man
Avinash Mahabirsingh (18 days ago)
Holy shit, Forza 7 was truly surprising, I've never seen a more VRAM hungry game in my life, literally double the FPS! I have a 3gb card in my downstairs pc and it's been able to run everything I've thrown at it at max settings and pinning the framerate to the 72Hz refresh of it's monitor, I now have to get Forza 7 to see that for myself, I wonder how it'll run on the 1080

So, I'm still pretty young but want to buy a good graphics card. I was thinking about the 1050TI, 1060 3gb or the 1060 6gb, i dont have to play on really high settings, just want a consistent 60 fps on the newer games like Farcry 5 etc. Any recommendations?
HB C (21 days ago)
get the highest of the 3 you can afford.

I was surprised how little the extra 3gb matters. about 5-6 frames on average. Hardly seems worth the expense.

Please anyone explain isn't it pointless to play 80-100 fps on 60 hz monitor setting? Iam planning to buy a graphic card (gtx1060) buy my monitor is of 60hz refresh rate.. Should i buy a new one of about 144 hz to have casual gaming.?

Martijn van Zanen (4 days ago)
Don't overkill the FFA and AA etc. I personly just put it on x2. U can't really tell the difference with off to x 16. ( I got a msi OC 970, 1060 6 gb and a 1080 none TI, the 970 should perform better, I got that 970gtx on my old AMD fx 8350 with 16 gb mem btw and its doing just fine on that pc)
Gletsher (18 days ago)
There most be something wrong in your settings and as ByAdrielSniper says, don't forget to update your driver.
ByAdrielSniper (23 days ago)
Ben Fletcher format your PC and update all your driver's

Is Forza 7 glitched?
Ronny Leeway (1 month ago)
Compare the VRAM usage on both, you'll understand whats happening.
Viewer19 (1 month ago)
The 7700K mitigates some of the system RAM usage of the 1060 3 GB. At these settings both these cards are pinning at 99% and system RAM is near 8GB the 16 GB is needed. Lowering a few settings would be the way to go if a lesser CPU or 8 GB mem is used. Gamers know its about the smooth game play and immersion so flipping a few switches to achieve that is what you do.
Abdul Sami (1 month ago)
Still gonna buy 6 gb though 6gb is more costly
Vasquez (1 month ago)
gentlemen, I'm using the i5 8400 processor(new bought). But why the temperature is 90 when playing games? I didn't get a fan for the CPU. I am using the processor's own fan please help
Ronny Leeway (1 month ago)
You mean you are using the stock Intel cooler/fan right? A stock Intel cooler should be fine assuming you didn't overclock your i5 8400. Second make sure the cooler fan is spinning. Third did you apply thermal paste correctly? Also it could be something minor like not properly fastening your cooler down - which can create a gap between the heat-sink and the thermal compound thus causing inefficient heat transfer.

Jin Moshchenko (1 month ago)
Up your f**king settings to very high and ultra in all these games, i wanna see results smart ass... Now everybody in the comments don`t understand what the fk more vram is for. "Oh yeah, 3gb all the way, what a stupid peaple have more then 3 gb vram, haHA." Just put your eyes on VRam usage in all these games.

a slight difference in FPS in most games, only in Forza FPS is almost half the size of a three-gigabyte card ... thanks

i would think there would be less than 10% difference in Performance. Only benefit is for games that will take advantage of additional memory for caching.

Gtx 1060 6gb более разогнана чем gtx 1060 3gb
*1060 3gb vram full it's bad :(*
Jack TheLad (1 month ago)
very useful thank you. a lot of people love to hate the 1060 3gb version of the card, but they seem to forget to consider pricing. If you can get one at a good price. ie. a decent chunk less than the 6gb version then its worthwhile considering. Here in aussie there is a 25% price differential at least. Some places its 30% and more Yet in most gaming scenarios the difference in performance is around 10%. As this video above demonstrates. You do the math :-) I know a good deal when I see one!
Leo Campelo (1 month ago)
Na minha humilde opinião, gastar cerca de 300,00 a mais para comprar uma 1060 6gb ao invés da 1060 3gb é um gasto desnecessário, vc vai gastar uma grana considerável para ganhar cerca de 4 ~ 10 Fps em média a mais num jogo, e só, sendo que seria muito mais significativo, em questão de "ganhos", vc aplicar este mesmo valor(300,00), para investir em mais memória ram por exemplo, no seu PC Gamer. (Lembrando, minha opinião se diz respeito mais em relação a performance de ambas as placas em relação aos jogos, e não em relação a streames ou renders de vídeos) !!!

Surprised at how close most of those results are. Was thinking my 1060 6gb wasn't worth it, until I saw the Forza difference. With Horizon 4 coming out this year, I'm glad I went with the better card.

DougisLive the 1060 6gb is not 120 dollars. :p where I live it costs around 300 bucks.

LastStopGaming well that a what I meant, u just mean spending 120 more is kind of a drag.
LastStopGaming (1 month ago)
DougisLive I dont think 1060 6gb is a budget card. I think it's in the middle of being a budget and a high end card.
DougisLive (1 month ago)
Victoria Andrews just a poorly optimised game, I personally see spending 120 more for a (budget) card is kinda dumb.
