Well if that’s the case, I think it would be worth buying it. But that’s just my opinion. Like AidanBear said the 1160 might be worth waiting for but you’d just have to pay a little more. If you have a job by the time the 1160 comes out you would probably have enough for it.

I am tossing up whether or not to get a new graphics card for my system as I’m not too sure that I need it right now. But I can get an asus Rog strix gtx 1060 oc for $360 aud.

 

Would this be worth getting or would I be better off waiting till after the new series come out?

Is it the 3Gb version or the 6Gb version? I presume at that price you are referring to the 3Gb. So if you are referring to the 3Gb version and your not sure if you need it right now, I think it would be best to save up a little more and get the 6Gb version.

Well after some googling I can’t actually find a Asus Rog Strix 3Gb, only a 6Gb version. Unless you meant just the normal Asus 1060 3Gb or you found the Asus Rog Strix 6Gb for $360 (if so go for it), or I just can’t find one?

With the current huge price decrease of graphics cards in Australia I assume you mean the 6gb version. I just picked up an Msi GTX 1070Ti a few weeks ago for my new build because I got it for a good price of $603 AUD and I decided not to wait for next gen cards because the 1170 will most likely cost at least $100-200 more. For you, since you already have a system and can wait, I would wait for the GTX 1160 which will probably release 2-3 months after the 1180 and 1170. You guaranteed won't find the GTX 1160 for $360 though and it will most likely be around $500.
