Just want to ask and need you opion Im having a hard time what to choose a GTX 1060 6gb Aorus Xtreme Edition for 220 USD but it is complete w. Box and everything and looks bnew and another guy ask me if  a GTX 1070 Palit SJS edit for 229 USD but no box etc but has a 6 mos warranty for a Supplier he said and i was thinking if that 1070 was used for mining, should i go for 1060 or 1070?

1070. A proper miner will undervolt the card and never run it at max frequency, so it's better maintained than a gaming card. Power cycles hurt silicon dies most, which is what mining cards suffer far less. The PCB components on the Super Jetstream are quite good too.

The 1070 is actually a good deal. The only thing you might be concerned about are the fans and thermal paste on the card. Both can more or less be changed or remedied easily. And don't just go by looks. That 1060 may have been used as a mining card too.
