    Best Purchase for 1080p Gaming

    Posted
    Zack

    Packaging: Upset that the card wasn't in an anti-static bag as I was going to use that for my old GPU but nonetheless the packaging was pretty decent. Noise: I'm always wearing headphones so I never hear anything but overall I do not notice a difference in fan noise, sounds just like my 750ti. Price: You cannot beat this price, better than the 970 & cheaper? What a steal. Performance: I only play one game in particular and my 750ti gets the job done but in some areas of the game it'll go below 40FPS and that's why I made this purchase. My 750ti would idle at ~35 FPS on ultra @ 1080p, with the 1060 in the same area, I average 100FPS on ultra @ 1080p. Also, make sure your power supply has an extra 6 pin connector (usually it's a 6+2) in order to give this card some power. Only adding this in because my friend who's clueless when it comes to computers had no idea he needed such a thing and had to upgrade his power supply in order to run the card. Anyways, if you game in 1080p, I highly recommend this card, won't need to make an upgrade for quite some time.

    This was purchased for my son's computer that we were upgrading to make it a gaming computer. This was the first thing we upgraded. We needed to get a new power supply in order to use this, but that may not be the case for everyone. This card was very easy to install. The hardest part we had to deal with was specific to the computer we were using as a couple of connections were in the way since this is a fairly large graphics card. My son has been very impressed with the graphics card compared to the stock card his computer had. There is no lag in his games now and he connects the card via HDMI to his TV and also connects it to his LCD computer monitor. This is a very good card for anyone looking to upgrade their system to work with intense gaming graphics.

    Quiet, affordable way to max out a 1080p monitor

    I was able to upgrade my Dell XPS 8900 with this card. However, it barely fit and having a USB extension cable for a standard USB motherboard connector would have made installation easier. I think the large size accommodates a good cooling system, however. The manufacturer recommends a minimum power supply of only 400 watts and a power monitor verifies that my upgraded desktop usually doesn't draw much more than 100 watts total while gaming. I recommend this card with the caveat that if you are unsure that a 9.85" x 4.53" card won't be too much of a hassle, consider a smaller card.

    Amazingly quiet, cool card

    I purchased this video card to replace my R9 380 4gb OC. I have to tell you this card is 50% better! I'm getting 62fps avg. on games like GTA V and Tomb Raider. I have an I5 4690s with 16gb of ram and this beast of a video card. The card itself runs cool and fairly quiet. If you're thinking of getting this video card over the RX 480.. Don't think twice about it - this is the card for you!

    Great card

    This may be one of the best gtx 1060s out there it has an amazing cooler which is silent while low load and even in games like gta v it still doesn't sound too loud. The card itself also looks very nice and the card has a full size pcb which surprised me in a good way. The only reason this card may not be good for you is if you have a really small itx case other than that this is a wonderfull card with amazing perfomance and runs all games on ultra settings.

    1st time CPU build - Got the 1060 on day 1

    My son (13) and I built his first gaming PC and decided to hold out to get the GTX 1060 instead of the more expensive 970. We paid $250 so could not beat the price. The card went in no problem and everything has been running smoothly since day one. It runs quiet and does not get hot at all. We have thrown a bunch of heavy games at it (ARK) and ran beautifully on 1080.

    A word of caution to anyone buying an Open Box PNY

    Posted
    PeterG

    A word of caution to anyone buying Open Box PNY parts. Most dealers distinguish between Open Box (open but never sent to a customer) and returned. I never buy returned items, but every manufacturer I have ever used honors warranties on Open Box items bought from a dealer. PNY DOES NOT. I now have a door stop.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    My computer had a pretty nice video card in it but it was time for an upgrade. I researched a bunch of gaming cards and for the money and performance of this NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Graphics Card was the perfect fit. No lag time super fast!!
