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: Small form factor Good price Excellent 2k performance on all available games, but don't expect to play in 4k.

Cons: Should have 2 DisplayPort instead of 2 DVI.

Overall Review: As an aging gamer, I've been through my share of video cards going all the way back to a Geforce2 MX and many in between. While I no longer have 8+ hours a day to play, the precious time I do have is utilized very well with this card. This card will run games in 4k but you won't get satisfactory framerate in most scenarios. However it does very well in 2560x1440 and I haven't found a game yet that will bog it down at the resolution. I was initially torn between this and the GTX 1070 Mini, but I'm happy with it. It tears through all the games I have past and present. It may not be the best choice for future-proofing, as I can see needing a new card in 2 years, but it is a great value and will make a good card for any serious gaming rig. If you want 4k gaming, go with at least a GTX 1070.
