Very happy.

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 ATX Video Card GV-N1060IXOC-6GD
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 ATX Video Card GV-N1060IXOC-6GD

Pros: My old GTX 670 SC from EVGA died. So I wanted something strong enough to play current games at max settings for most @ 1080p. This little beast is great. I play everything at max and can handle most of my games on 3 screens with pretty good settings still. Hopefully it will last at least 3 years.

Cons: - A bit pricy for Canadians.

Overall Review: If you play in 1080p, this bad boy is way enough! For higher resolutions, you may need a 1070+.

2 years and a half later, the card is diying.

Overall Review: Only 2 years and a half of mid-usage and the card is already passing out. I can't play a game without a crash and I need to significantly downclock it to simply watch Youtube. Very disappointed and there's no card in stock to replace it at a decent price.

Solid board and good looking.

Pros: - The RGB Dragon is very cool, was impressed when I turned my PC on. - Clean BIOS with lots of options and easy to OC. You can enable XMP with a single click. - USB with all drivers and common utilities for quick setup. - Angled Sata ports, easier to hide cables. - Good I/O and I like fixed antennas for Wifi. - Good Audio, pretty clean sound for studio use.

Cons: - Minor: would like more USB2 headers, like 4. And a second USB3 header. - Minor: Would like a angled PSU ATX 24 pins port to hide it better but I understand people like to use RGB cables / cablemods. - Minor: I/O cooler is a bit too big (1 or 2mm) and I had a bit of trouble using my AIO X63 cooler at the top. - Minor: a bit costly for a DDR4 board.

Overall Review: Overall pretty happy, looks even better than I thought and performs as I wanted. A bit sad about the lack of more USB2 headers on such a high-end board, but that's about it, easy fix with NZXT hub. Build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/yRtTXb (waiting for RTX40XX now) Glad I went with MSI once again.

Pros: - Onboard heatsinks ain't too huge. - The BIOS menu is awesome! - Nice features for the price. - Worked first shot ;)!

Cons: - The plate for the input/output is really cheap. It's a very thin metal plate. More suited for 50-75$ boards.

Died after 4 years
