Great graphics card for the price. Stays at around 60 to 75 C when running games, even when gpu clock is raised, and 30 C when idle. Goes up to 85 when playing games at 4k, but its 4k and the game is running at its highest settings, so yeah.
This is my first ever GTX GPU, and I must say it runs smoothly. It stays cool. It has never even stuttered on any game that has been thrown at it. If you want the new budget GPU, the 1060 is a great choice. I'm interested in seeing if the 1050 TI is actually good enough compared to the 1060, but for this build I wanted something that would be relevant for a few years at least.
Yes, I could have gone with a 480. But the 1060 was cheaper than any 480 at the time, and the 480 at the time was not as efficient. Worth every penny to me.
I had decided on a 6GB 1060 ever since I started plannig the build. Where I live EVGA gpu's are cheaper than Asus, Gigabyte or MSI, and they matched my build. I wanted to get the one with the ACX 3.0 cooler, but it was out of stock everywhere I looked, also I got this one for much cheaper. It runs amazing, I don't need anything more powerful for a 60Hz 1080p monitor.
