4670 ratings | 405715 views
The Geforce GTX 1060 is officially launched, and it's taking on the Radeon RX 480 headfirst. So, does it negate any reason to buy the 480? Well.. surprisingly, not entirely!

I'm happy that I want to buy this graphics card but the dollar has increased in my country and because of this I could not afford to buy it.

Phenomenal card. I originally bought a XFX RX 580 8 gig and it ran hot often even with good airflow. Died after three weeks. Replaced it with a MSI GTX 1060 6 gig and I'm floored by the cool temps and excellent performance on ultra settings in everything I threw at it. Never looking back.

here is a build similar to yours but MUCH MUCH better, https://pcpartpicker.com/list/qdBDbj
Kryptical (7 months ago)
what is your budget? Ill make you a good build
Kryptical (7 months ago)
1. you dont need a 650w psu, 450-550 will be fine 2. you dont need the 6gb variant of the 1060 unless you play at 1440p+ 3. id suggest getting a higher quality motherboard 4. get a ryzen 5 1600 instead because its cheaper, has more core and threads and is going to be supported longer
RandomPerson (8 months ago)
4:20 It's because a lot of games don't support SLI and it uses an insane amount of power. Like you need a pretty beefy PSU if you're going to run four GPU's.

1060 costs ~20% more, but it has ~10+% better performance? What about power consumption, it spends less than 480, so over its lifetime 1060 will be both *cheaper* and better performing, regardless of opinions. Yet I see AMD fanboys spamming nonsense in comments... how.. why?

Wow....while comparing these benchmarks, on the most current video by JazytwoCents, comparing the RX 580 in tomb raider the FPS was 78fps vs. 76FPS and the 480 had 71fps on Ultra Settings......??????? soooo why such a big difference??
TriplosX (1 year ago)
Yesterday I was going to buy a GTX 1050 Ti because I was on a budget, then today I was going to buy an RX 470, a few moments later an RX 480 and a couple of hourse later, now I think I'll go with the 1060

Would you need a cooler for oc mode? Or could you just do it with no consequences

hi, im kev (1 year ago)
The only reason that the rx 480 can beat the gtx 1060 is because they use their own software for the physics engine for like hairs and stuff. Its like the PhyX engine in Nvidia

I just ordered this along with some other stuff to upgrade my fathers toaster of a PC and now I think I'm going to give him my 970 and take the 1060 I ordered for him lmao. I didn't realize it was that much better 15%+ overall with some even pushing almost 20% over the 970. Good stuff.

I've a question...this is coming from a person just about to create his first rig. I've got this graphics card, that's all...but, I've got the following items in my cart. I'm just wondering would they all go well together. RAM: Kingston HyperX FURY 16GB Kit (2x8GB) 1600MHz DDR3 MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 3 PSU: EVGA 600 B1, 80+ BRONZE 600W and CPU: Intel Core i5 6500 3.20 GHz Quad Core Skylak all wrapped up in a cheap Zalman ATX Mid Tower PC Case Z1 Neo case... Sound okay?
Xander Chamorro (1 year ago)
Sounds good to me, really good actually. If you are not sure about the compatibility then run it through Part Picker https://pcpartpicker.com/ You did not mention an hdd or sdd (even though I am aware you probably know this and have stuff picked out). I would suggest and sdd, but if you are trying to save money then get a Western Digital tb or two, and a cheap Kingston SDD (120 gb is the cheapest), then just have your system run through the sdd.

is a 'gtx 1060 6gb' a big upgrade compared to a 'gtx 960 4gb'
NewHamsters (1 year ago)
The 1060 is about 80% to 100% faster than the 960.
MrHiglon (1 year ago)
Can someone tell me how large it is or if the retail information includes the whole thing with the framing for the screws or just the chip itself. If it is 28cm in total it would be dandy but if it's just the chip i have to pass. Have a good one

Gianfranco Boz Magni (1 year ago)
Can someone tell me why, when i start the pc, and i open msi afterburner i see that my gpu core is at 200 mhz and memory at 400? I have a msi gtx 1060 gaming X and a i5 6600, it's a new pc, and i do not have idea about overclocking, gpu and cpu speeds, i just downloaded msi afterburner to see the fps and temperatures. Does the gpu speed auto control itself and get higher when i start to play? Thanks :P

Xafe Mode (1 year ago)
+GravelsNotAFood its cool, you got one heck of a deal, so use it!
GravelsNotAFood (1 year ago)
+Xafe Mode Sorry, I'm planning on using both in SLI. I'm just waiting for my new i7 6700k from Newegg.  My old I5 would have bottlenecked it. Perhaps when/if the 1080 TI comes out, I'd be more willing to sell both. But for now. Sorry, but no.

Okay so I have benn looking at the GTX 1060. The problem is thought, that I don't know which of the 1060 versions to get. What would you recommend? -GTX 1060 MSI Gaming X -GTX 1060 MSI Armor -GTX 1060 Strix -GTX 1060 Strix OC Please type which card and why you would choe it. Thanks :)

how much more performance would I be looking at from upgrading my current gtx 670 to the 1060?
enteryourtexthere (1 year ago)
Everyone is defending the 480 but actually lots of people dont know that AMD cards are fucking dangerous. If they overheat it can litteraly burn down a house. They can reach higher tempratures than NVIDIA cards.
