      GPU prices are still slightly higher but Best Buy sold this for a good deal compared to Amazon/Newegg having $60 off. I chatted with Newegg and they looked at Best Buy and confirmed it’s the same card as theirs and that they won’t price match though. My upgrade is monstrous since I’m doing from Gefore 550Ti to this. I overclocked my old i7 2600k CPU from 3.4 to 4.4mhz and this GPU slightly by +75 base/+150 memory mhz. The frames I’m getting is excellent by testing on AAA games. I enjoy BF1 on Xbox, so benchmarked on the PC version and I’m getting 90-150FPS during gameplay on ULTRA settings! I bought a 3.9ft HDMI Dynex cable for $8.49 sale vs spending $20-$30 and just the same good results you expect. I highly recommend this product. EVGA has a Step Up program that lasts 90 days after you buy a card which allows you to upgrade from their site if prices fall. 5/5, this is an excellent product and the reviews saying 4.8/5.0 are true. Buy it if you’re on the fence like I’ve been for months. Got it for $309 and figured that’s good enough. Also free Next Day Overnight FedEx shipping

      Best card for budget conscious gamers

      As someone who is always more concerned with getting the most value for my money as opposed to always having the absolute latest and greatest of everything, this card suits my needs perfectly. No, I won't be rendering and Pixar movies or playing every single game at ultra mega high settings at 4K resolution at 900 frames a second. But I will be playing all of those games at ultra settings at 1080p at nothing less than 60 frames a second, and I'll be doing it with load temperatures under 65C with virtually no cooling to speak of in my case. I can also handle VR once the headsets cost less than the card itself. The card is wonderful, it handles the current generation of games no sweat and unless you want 4k gaming or need 120hz and high settings at the same time all the time, this will do whatever you want and it won't cost you as much as a refrigerator. EVGA also has the best warranty around, even going as far as making it automatically transfer to whoever you sell the card to down the line. That's a nice piece of mind for one of the most expensive components in your PC. Bottom line: If you're looking for a card for 1080p gaming that plays anything you ask it to but doesn't charge you an extra hundred dollars because they overclocked it for you, this is the one.

      Great card, a bit too pricey for 192-bit and 6gb

      This is hands down a fantastic card. It literally runs everything I throw at it. That said however, it is a little bit overpriced. At the time of purchase (not review) it was $300~ Now, last generation or any before it that would be and insane price for the type of performance you get out of this thing, but while their is cards out there that have 8 or 12 GB, there should only be a 6GB version anyway, there shouldn't be a 3GB version that I have to pay MORE to upgrade from. It already isn't future-proof because some games are already exceeding 3GB before the cards release. Also, 192-bit I feel was a bit low, I would have liked to see at least 256-bit memory. And to add a little more I can't remember exactly how many cuda cores it has but it wasn't nearly as much as I expected it to have. Even the AMD equivilent "stream processors" is always upgraded by a large amount each time. This one is only like 1124~ I believe or somewhere around that, and the RX480 that costs less is like 2100 (it's also 256-bit and 8GB, but has a lower clock frequency and lower overclock headroom) All in all it's a great card but for the physical features, I feel like it should be at least the same price as the RX480 since the performance is the same and as we transition to DX12, the RX480 might end up pulling far ahead, but no one knows yet. AMD is definitely my preference for everything else recently. Can't go wrong with either one. EVGA made a great card, you should definitely buy this if you can, if you have a little more go for the 1070 and make your PC futureproof. But you can't go wrong with the 1060 6GB SSC from EVGA!

      It worked perfectly until it died

      Posted

      Well so far this card died on me very quickly, only in two months and I need to replace it, at first I was having some issues that it would turn off my PC in high load in Valley Engine benchmark and I hear the fans of the GPU spinning very loud at first. After a day or two it was working perfectly fine but after two months all I did was just watched two Netflix movies and decided to play Watch Dogs 2 for while and it suddenly kicked the bucket it today. When I put the HDMI cord in the video card it wasn't showing me no display, only when I put it through my Motherboard HDMI slot but when I put back my old EVGA Geforce GTX 960 FTW with 2gb of Ram it was working perfectly but Watch Dogs 2 is very unstable with this card. I have to get a replacement ASAP. Another thing I notice for the eight pin connectors the adapter for the pci-e wasn't clicking in to the 8 pins and it was very loose even if I press some force in the graphics card pin slot it didn't click like how my GTX 960 Adapter clicks into its 8 pin slot. I should've returned it when I notice the adapter didn't fit the 8 pin adapter properly. That could of cause the problem of the Watts going through for the graphics card. I am pretty upset because EVGA does make very high quality graphics card and for this one to die in less than two months was very unusual. My custom PC is about 5 years old but that shouldn't shorten the card that quickly since my EVGA GTX 960 FTW is very stable but not stable with modern games since 2gb of Vram doesn't cut it. That is why I wanted to upgrade the graphics card.

      Best value for GPU on market today

      I shopped around a bit and Best Buy actually had the best price available for the 1060 6gb. I saw one that was cheaper on another large retailer, but it was the single fan model and I just don't trust one fan for some reason so I needed the dual. I can play pretty much any game at very high settings at least with this GPU (running i5 8400 16gb ram) at 60 fps (I'm not really an fps guy, but I know people care about that). I've been playing Kingdom Come: Deliverance and Vampyr recently. KCD is a very demanding game and although it gets a little dicey on Ultra settings, Very High is still aesthetically incredible. I upgraded from a 3gb 1060 and I can really tell the difference between the two. I get much better performance out of this one, with a little more power consumption. We'll see how future-proof it is, though. I imagine I won't need another GPU for a couple of years though and that's well worth the amount I paid for this.

      Best $300 spent on upgrading PC

      I had issue with trying to edit Full HD (60fps) with current spec. Intel 6th I7, 24GB ram, 2TB 7200rpm hard drive, Internal SSD 240GB (use it to store video file for editing) AVS Video editing software (latest version) I was able to edit HD video format (30fps with 1920x1080) with original graphic card that came with Dell desktop. Time to time had issue with pre-rendering/preview view, video was little choppy. I even try to edit the file from SSD but that didn't help. So I bought GTX 1030 but that didn't helped either. At least with 1030, playing Full HD was smooth, before, it was also very choppy as well. Did some research and best solution would been move OS to SSD but I wanted to see if I can do it without. So decided to give a try with GTX1060. Yes, more $ for causal editing but man!! Was that the best $300 I ever spend on upgrading. After installing, the whole desktop felt like brand new, No more issue with pre-rending, real time preview, even day to day operation seems to be a lot faster. So yes, anybody having issue with Pre-Rendering / Preview during video editing, highly recommend upgrading graphic card instead of anything else!!

      I bought this card after doing some research online and deciding that it would meet my needs for moderate gaming. I picked it up at the store and got it home, installed it and powered it on, that is when things went wrong, I heard the fans on the card ramp way up, like and aircraft readying for take off, I immediately checked all my connections, everything was in the correct place and that's when I noticed the that only one of the two pre-installed fans was turning, it was running at max to compensate for the other fan sitting there doing nothing, I called EVGA, the representative was helpful but in the end we both came to the conclusion that it was defective. The next day I got up early and raced to the store where I was helped almost immediately with my exchange.

      Great card for budget build early 2017

      I bought this card as a upgrade to my 750ti which was still playing games fine in 1080p....This card completely passed my expectations! I can max settings out on any game for 1080p so far and get a great gaming experience. But mostly I use nividia geforce experience to adjust the settings for me and it looks beautiful. OVERCLOCKING* I have my top overclock setting at 110+ gpu clock 570+ memory clock with the fan mode set to aggressive and no need for messing with the voltage. Several have reported heating problems and I've read but haven't checked into that there's a recall on the cooler for all evga duel fan cards.....right now with that overclock under load on max settings for witcher 3 I never leave 60fps (i have vsync on) and my temps never go above 60C. So if there was problems and your concerned just call evga and talk it out ;). As for me.....no problems here lol
