Reviews around bang (5.00 of 5)

  • For $240 plus a rebate, this has been the best bang-for-buck GPU I've ever had
  • Probably the best bang for your buck if you're not too crazy about having the absolute best picture quality on your monitor.
  • I'm using these cards for mining, they seemed like a good bang for the buck.
  • I'm sure side by side with a top tier build you would see a substantial gain, but you get what you pay for, and this is a good bang for your buck

Reviews around gb (4.37 of 5)

  • 3GB will often not be enough for most games while 6GB is always more then enough and gives some future proofing
  • I also think the 3gb of vram will be limiting in some games
  • 3 GB of VRAM is definitely enough for gaming at 1080p, and is only at most a 10% performance difference to the 6 GB version usually a 5% difference since it has fewer CUDA cores than the 6 GB version
  • Great starter but the 3 gb will cause bride fram drops when it maxes out I would recommend the 6 gb version to all I upgraded to it and its awesome.
  • 3 GB is usually enough for that resolution (whereas the 2 GB of many 960s was NOT really enough during the second half of that card's prominence), though there are some games with ultra high texture packs that will blow through 3 GB of RAM

Reviews around performance (4.27 of 5)

  • If you want a card that will give you great 1080 performance, or 1440 performance for games with lower demand, then look no further.
  • This is a great value with very good performance if you don't want to upgrade your PC power supply of 450W in
  • The card itself is pretty good: low power usage when not gaming, good performance for most games at 1080p
  • The card itself is pretty good: low power usage when not gaming, good performance for most games at 1080p
  • The ryzen 10900x, It is cheap, better performance, and it can fry egg during winter

Reviews around install (4.23 of 5)

  • easy install and driver d-load, perfect match for my amd 8350 black ed
  • Just downloaded new drivers and Guru II.Plugged it and ran setup with clean install option enabled
  • But I never had issues installing drivers until switching cards.
  • Easy install, fans are quiet, and stays cool throughout gaming sessions
  • I only regret not buying the 6GB version as I feel I'll get more use over time for newer games and streaming.

Reviews around price (4.10 of 5)

  • Final word, great card and price (now) for mid-range systems like mine.
  • I only regret not buying the 6GB version as I feel I'll get more use over time for newer games and streaming.
  • Great price for a good card, huge upgrade from my old card
  • I've been nothing but impressed by its performance, and it doesn't even have to spin up the fan to keep the temps under control for games like Heroes of the Storm!I would definitely recommend this card for a reasonable price.
  • Also, make sure you are paying the right price for the card, it is often out if stock and marked up by 3rd party resellers

Reviews around gpu (3.99 of 5)

  • I also own a 1060 3gb in my other system, its almost equally as good as the 6gb card but will most likely be hindered by its 3gb of vram in the near future, so I highly recommend this gpu.
  • Very happy with the build and this little GPU never gets hotter than 61° C and is dead silent under load
  • I'm so very pleased as I was concerned that the gpu would be noticeably hindered by my old setup
  • Long story short my GPU was overheating cuz this crap software wasn't working
  • Purchased this GPU for my girlfriend, no coil whine, full efficient and low noise she loves this thing
  • Read remaining 34 reviews for gpu

Reviews around game (3.99 of 5)

  • I play games at 1080p ultra settings on all games well over 60fps, you could even play some games at 1440p high settings
  • Love it every game I play runs 70+ fps on maxed settings other games
  • As a daily but casual gamer who largely enjoys games for being a visual spectacle, I am happy with this card
  • Most games at this resolution at high/ultra will fall between 2-3 GB RAM usage, so this will cover most
  • I run my card at 60% power limit and have no issues running any game at 1080p

Reviews around fan (3.35 of 5)

  • PLUS the fans are quieter at full tilt than even the old GTX 760 by the same brand
  • Each fan can run slower since there is double the air flow
  • The video editors run smoothly, Photoshop is happy, and the fans are whisper quiet
  • I haven't had any loud fan noise like some review stated, so far its great and stays cool happy with this purchase
  • It did sound a little noisy when I first installed it, but I did what a few people online have been saying about running the fan at 100% for a little bit to "break it in" and then the noise went away

Reviews around thing (3.32 of 5)

  • Almost no sound of the fan spinning is another awesome thing
  • There is another thing wrong with it too which is definitely the card/drivers/software
  • I told them that I would return the card if they would not "do the right thing"
  • I only regret not buying the 6GB version as I feel I'll get more use over time for newer games and streaming.
  • This graphic card is great an easy to install even if you have Windows 7 like myself because I prefer Windows 7 the drivers automatically downloaded also have very good things to say about Amazon

Reviews around time (1.33 of 5)

  • Would recommend this card for budget friendly builds, although now is t the best time to buy these since the bitcoin crisis is happening.
  • My computer never ever froze when I had a evga GTX 960 but ever since I upgraded to this 1060 it freezes all the time
  • I only regret not buying the 6GB version as I feel I'll get more use over time for newer games and streaming.
  • I might assume that i got a lemon, my card's fan rattles every time it starts running.
  • The blackout during multiplayer gaming resulted in lost matches at the most inopportune time.

Reviews around coil whine (1.27 of 5)

  • it started to have really audible coil whine and unfortunately my case doesn't really allow for nice suppression on that
  • Purchased this GPU for my girlfriend, no coil whine, full efficient and low noise she loves this thing
  • But the reason why I'm giving it 3 stars is because there is a coil whine
  • The card is very quite and no coil whine, which is great since my old 770 suffered from coil whine
  • Purchased this GPU for my girlfriend, no coil whine, full efficient and low noise she loves this thing
