Is 1060 worth getting

Recommended Posts

That's a marginal upgrade if anything. I wouldn't do it.

Be nice to each other boys and girls. And don't cheap out on a power supply.

No, not really. Performance is almost on par. Only if you want to save a bit on your power bill

No, If you can't afford a 1070 this generation, wait for the gtx 1100 series. Alternatively, you could sell your 970 and make up the rest to buy a 1060, but even then it's hard to justify.

or what about an upgrade to 1070... will it be worth


If you'll be getting the 6GB 1060, it might be a good upgrade.

I would wait for the funds for a 1070 unless the 970 is under-performing for your liking.
