ASUS Strix GTX 1060 or something else

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I want to get a new graphics card for either Black Friday, Cyber Monday, or Christmas, and I was thinking about getting the Asus Strix GTX 1060.


Now since I don't know all that much about GPUs, are there better ones around this price point or cheaper? Is the GTX 1060 even worth it nowadays? Any other choices that you guys recommend?

Are there cheaper more powerful cards available? 


Thank you!

Since the 1060 is last gen, the prices are all wrong. $200 gets you a 1070 from eBay, and the $260 can get you a nice 1660 super model.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B
