2107 ratings | 214583 views
The Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1060 OC is the perfect graphics card for 1080p gaming - but is the overclock and triple-fan cooler enough to warrant the £300/$330 asking price? Or are the GTX 1070 and RX 480 better options? Buy: US: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01IPVSN1S/?tag=techchap-20 UK: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01INGT6W0/?tag=techchap-21 Enjoy the video?

When I got this, I was like, I can’t afford a 1070 because it was at the time when the 1070 prices were jacked up, so I’ll just get the best 1060

Thomas Anderson I think you should go with a cheaper motherboard and get the i7 And 8th gen Intel CPU is drop now why don't check it out ?
Dr. Tiggy (11 months ago)
No shit it's too expensive. This thing is creeping up on 400 euros in Serbia, with no drop in sight. It's absolute insanity. An American is 5 times richer than a Serb on average, yet he can get this for a bit over 300 US DOLLARS, not euros, *dollars*. Similar situation in most of Europe really, but it hits the hardest in lower standard countries like mine. Fuck this world.

The reason this card has a good potential exceeding the boostclock is simply because it has the 1080/1070 chipset

Do you think it is worth buying right now? Or should I wait? Or even get an RX 56?
Eddie (11 months ago)
Bartosz Proelio yes, you can’t really find any rx 480s or 580s on the market for a reasonable price. With the rx 560, I don’t think you’re getting as much horsepower. Right now, I would get the 1060. That’s just my opinion tho.

swen westenenk if you're just gaming on fullscreen and not windowed it should be fine, but put in mind that you cant go to your other monitor while gaming.

Oke but i am only gaming on one monitor

todor92 (1 year ago)
Bought this before 5-6 months ..so far I'm pretty happy with it. If your other specs are good.. u can play EVERY game and not all but for sure most of them on Ultra (max) settings. Ofc. there are also 1070, 1080 and before few days 1080 Ti ..but if u cant spend more money on them, then 1060 will do the job! With this 3 fans.. damn u can cool your card so damn fast using asus software/app on your desktop. So at all.. if u can't get 1070 or 1080 then this is the right choise for sure! Recommend.
D.R DEAD (1 month ago)
which mobo are you using
Pitterpatter (6 months ago)
This card is more the sweet spot for ultra 1080p gaming, I'm sure 4k is do-able, but I am pretty sure 1070-1080ti is much more stable for 4k.
Xavi168 (6 months ago)
u get to completely turn off aa at 4k so i dont see why u couldn't do 4k with a 1060
Xavi168 (6 months ago)
gta v runs on medium-high 4k no problem if properly tuned. I have an i5 6500 which boosts only upto 3.6.. its insane an x60 card can do 4k...i wasn't even hoping to get 1440p out of this card.. no wonder nvidia is not releasing any new gpus

Upgrading from a rx 460 to this but since it's my bday tomorrow from when I'm posting this but was about to get a 1050 to FTW
SgtAwesome97 (1 year ago)
I bought this card, but I have gotten it to stable 120mhz oc over base. Is that good, or not so good? This is my first PC, so I'm still learning this stuff lol I used the EVGA PrecisionX OC to do it, maybe thats my problem? My reasoning is that it seems simpler to use than the ASUS program.

So what i should buy gtx 1060 or rx480?
A Bad Hacker (1 year ago)
but for the price of SLI 480, you can probs get a 1070 which is great for 1440p and maybe some 4k, i would go 1060 on this one, but the 480 is still a great card.
Xbox Master (1 year ago)
SolidRush YT im going 480 when i get enough. Your choice!
Xbox Master (1 year ago)
SolidRush YT the rx 480 you can go crossfire and double your proformance later
