The best Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 deals

Which manufacturer should you buy from?

The GeForce GTX 1060 is operating in the mid-tier of Nvidia's new Pascal graphics cards, and it's looking to be about on par with the performance of the GTX 980 at the moment. The GTX 980 still wins out in some circumstances, but as we move forward and developers start to take more advantage of the hardware features of Pascal, we should be seeing better and better performance out of the GTX 1060.

There are two GTX 1060 options available, one with 6GB of VRAM, the other with 3GB of VRAM. Obviously the one with less VRAM is less powerful, but also less expensive, so it all depends on your budget. Sitting around the $250 - $350 price range, both cards offer really good value for money. If you want to know exactly what we think of the GTX 1060, make sure to check out the PC Gamer review.

There are a bunch of new hardware features which make the GTX 1060 a better option than the previous generation of hardware. So, if you're looking to upgrade to a GTX 1060, this is where you need to start. Below you'll find the cheapest card from all the GTX 1060 manufacturers. Nvidia's reference card got both the 3GB and 6GB VRAM versions has a base clock speed of 1506MHz and a boost clock speed of 1708MHz, with a memory speed of 8000MHz. The custom cards below will often have boosted specs and their own cooling systems.

The best Asus GTX 1060 deals

As usual, Asus has a fair few options available. The ROG Strix GTX 1060 O6G Gaming has a good overclock on it, with 1620 / 1847MHz base / boost clock speeds. Plus the memory is up at 8200MHz.

EVGA always offer good quality options for GTX cards, but just make sure you had the latest VBIOS updates if you want to avoid overheating on its ACX 3.0 cards.

It draws a lot of power though at 150W.
