How's MSI for warranty? I have trouble distinguishing why to get this 1060 over that 1060, etc... what do you all consider when deciding?

no personal experience with msi for warranty but i have heard good/bad. many things to consider - warranty, customer service, reference vs custom, reviews... i prefer evga for my GPUs, based off their CS and step up program alone - more info here [evga.com]

Here's a review [guru3d.com] of the Gaming X version of this card.

Dang, OOS again already. These "deals" don't last long. I had all my alerts setup but was monitoring all of newegg's 1060 stock. I was able to get mine on order even before the SD deal alert triggered (and of course, before Newegg's autonotify).

3 years warranty

I ordered this one today as newegg messed up my original order for the $250 Gigabyte version. An extra $30 isn't worth it but eh, it's the only decent one in stock now.

I've done quite a bit of research of all the 1060 options out there (as well as RX480 and 1070) and here's why this one stood out (and, perhaps justify the $30 above MSRP price tag):


Edit: some of the items below are for the Gaming X version which costs $299.99 and is OOS. this one is identical but factory OC'ed to 1746MHz vs 1810.
Factory OC to 1810 (boost). All factory OC'ed cards (except for the $250Gigabyte) are above $280 price.
RBG LED plus LED lighting on the shroud. Gigabyte only has it on the top. STRIX has some on the shroud but not as nice (IMO).
Good custom cooling solution (good for OC)
Back plate (some cheaper models don't have it)
Nicer design on the rear cut out (IMO and minor detail)
Open shroud design which will benefit more from my 90mm side panel fan.
Low noise (see linked review)
Good OC (based on linked review. Their sample goes to 2113 MHz! Memory went to 9.6Ghz from 8Ghz!)
5+1 power phase design. It's not 6+1 as I had hoped but it's much better than the stock 4+1 design. Nonetheless, the OC performance above is pretty awesome.

This card is HUGE. Note the card extends past the bracket.

Stock/reference/FE edition is actually 3+1, so this is a considerable improvement (to the extent I know about this stuff).

You're right. It helps explain the good oc. Reviews state that, even with max oc, this card doesn't run hot and the fans are still quiet. It's a great aftermarket design.

Have you seen anything about the 1060/RX 480 on Asus cards?

I'm looking for a good budget/value buy, but prefer Asus based on past experience with them, but I can't seem to find much info/reviews on 1060 at least from Asus. I know newegg had a Asus ROG Strix 1060 for an eye popping $310.... Frown

Not that I've seen. I've only seen zotac, pny, evga, and some others on sale. The 309 strix is crazy. I was eyeing the 379 asus 1070 bc 1060s were not in stock but that single fan cooler is crap (IMO). Now even that option is out of stock. I got this msi but sadly it won't arrive until next week. One more weekend on my ancient 560ti I guess.

As for 480, stock are even worse than 1060. And I haven't seen any aftermarket 480 for sale yet. I was going to buy the 4g 480 but early power issues kept me away (not that there's stock anyway). I also dont like that single fan/shroud design. For a power hungry card like that, i think you will have lots of noise. Supposedly market will see 3rd party cooler designs within 2 weeks. For 480, I'd wait for 3rd party cooler.

I'm an avid gamer but I've never paid this much for a videocard before. Most I paid was about $180 for my 560ti. Ppl paying 600+ for 1080 cards are crazy. I was actually targeting the rx480, or even the rx460. It blows my mind that some people call the 1060 a "budget" card.

Set sd alert for 1060 and set newegg autonotify. Also periodically search for "1060" on newegg since they have the most 1060 listing.

I also spoke to newegg customer service about stock and they said they've put out PO's for 1060s. No ETA but, at the moment, I think newegg is one of the top places to watch. I find now in stock.com too slow and too late to update.

Good luck

Newegg messed up my original gigabyte order (at 6am on launch day for $250) so I've been obsessed with tracking stock. Grabbed this msi as soon as it came back in stock even though it was $30 more. No better choice out there.

If you are going for budget price, then you got to wait for the initial launch rush to die down. Think 1-2 months and you will likely find it at a sale price with maybe a game.

I typically game on console, and hasn't bought a PC in a long time. I'm returning and spending around $700-850 it seems to build one. A 1060/RX 480 is what I call the low end enthusiast market where bang for buck is the best. Of course the 4GB RX 480 is the best bang for buck card out now, and I wouldn't worry about the power issue as it has been fixed.

Personally, I'm eyeing a 1060 though myself due to the lower power requirement.

Yeah. I usually buy on a slick deal after about a year. However my current card (560ti) is 4 generations old and is crashing often in overwatch. I've been waiting over 2 months to upgrade. Was disappointed in rx480, and now, its stock and lack of 3rd party offers. 1060 came out at the right time, albeit a bit more expensive. I could theoretically wait another 6 months while my game kept crashing but nah, this upgrade is long overdue.
