Fantastic Budget Friendly 1060 3GB

PNY GeForce GTX 1060 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Video Card VCGGTX10603PB
PNY GeForce GTX 1060 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Video Card VCGGTX10603PB

Pros: -Inexpensive -Lifetime warranty through PNY -Overclocks to 2.1GHz -VR Ready -3 Display Ports, 1 DVI, 1 HDMI -1080p gaming on Ultra at 60+ fps -6 pin power connector

Cons: -3GB is not entirely future-proof -Plastic cover -No backplate -Doesn't come in anti-static bag -Fans run idle at a constant 25%

Overall Review: For my first PC build, I went with the 1060 3GB and could not be happier. After downloading MSI Afterburner and running stress tests, I was able to overclock the GPU to 2.1GHz (+200MHz) and the Memory to 4.4GHZ (+400MHz) and I get some crazy performance out of it. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My Overclock: +50% Core Voltage 116% Power Limit 92C Temp Limit +200 Core Clock +400 Memory Clock Default Auto Fan Profile ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Here are some benchmarks while running on my OC profile: -Witcher 3 at Ultra settings with Hairworks set to low gets a minimum of 80 fps and averages around 100 fps -Doom (2016) at Ultra with Vulkan only drops beneath 100 fps in large firefights and averages 110 fps -Rocket League at Ultra maintains 200+ fps -GTA 5 on highest settings without any AA gets a minimum of 80 fps and an average of 90 fps ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My Rig: -Intel i5-6400 2.7GHz -MSI H110m Gaming mATX -PNY 1060 3GB -Kingston UV400 480GB SSD -2 x 8GB G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4 2400MHz but running at 2133MHz -EVGA 430W White PSU
