5 out of 5 eggs Best "Sweet spot" card I've ever seen. Best current 1060 to buy. 09/30/2016

This review is from: EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 SC GAMING, ACX 2.0 (Single Fan), 06G-P4-6163-KR, 6GB GDDR5, DX12 OSD Support (PXOC), Only 6.8 Inches

Pros: As the title says, this is the best "sweet spot" card I've seen. The previous generation card in the "sweet spot" was the GTX 970, which came in at $400 and was actually a pretty good deal. This however blows that deal out of the water. This kind of performance (any game on the planet at 1080p, ultra graphics, at a constant 60fps) is simply unbelievable to me at this price pint, which is currently $259.

Add to that the size of this card, which is probably 2/3 to half the size of many current cards. I LOVE this. Makes it so easy to use in almost any build.

QUIET! I can barely hear this thing running (probably due to the single fan) while playing games.

In a nutshell, this is the best performing card per dollar on the market. And this particular one (EVGA 6gb) is the best value among them.

Cons: None. Works perfectly out of the box at low temps and with super quiet operation.

Pros: Very good board. Tons of overclocking options and looks really cool to boot. Installed my I7 4790k and it clocked it to 4.4 ghz right away. It putr the voltage at 1.24, which seemed a little high, so I lowered it to 1.21 and it's stable and runs a bit cooler.

Cons: zip

EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G2 220-G2-0750-XR 80+ GOLD 750W Fully Modular EVGA ECO Mode Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Power Supply

Pros: First of all, anyone giving this PSU less than 5 stars doesn't know much about them. For this price point you really cannot do any better. When it comes to PSU's ignore the brand name and find out the OEM, in this case it is a great manufacturer called Superflower. They making outstanding PSU's and this one is no different.

The PSU is the heart of your system and skimping on it is a recipe for disaster. This PSU has a 10 year warranty and all but guarantees you years of worry free service.

Cons: You have to register to get the warranty, though it's not much of a con.
