Is the GTX 1060 STRIX really worth it?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Im about to buy a gtx 1060 for my current rig and I have two options:

Gigabyte GTX 1060 G1 gaming or the Asus gtx 1060 Strix. Both are about the same price (the strix is like $10 more), but I read the gigabyte has some issues in OC mode. The strix looks better thats for sure but how about performance and features? also, anyone care to post a picture of the strix card installed?

Go with whatever takes your fancy. I've learned since my first build to always take what i want despite what others say, never regretted since.

I'd recommend Strix or whatever you like personally

Performance and features is pretty much the same.

I would go with asus because of the looks, and the cooler is good and quiet.

My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

I personally ignore all that gimmick OCmode / quiet mode BS and just use my own profiles and set temp/power targets, works infinitely better, At that point it just comes down to vendor
