Thanks! I have used my last Premier account Visa combo for FS to get it for $235.
I have used this card in one build a month ago and it was very good, I did not experience any coil whine and that glowing logo changing colors was awesome in a huge side window. Card is rather rigid for such length, it did not bend under own weight like some other cards do.

Grabbed one.
Be aware it has a "no refund" return policy though.

I grabbed this and realized I have no 8pin connector in my XPS 8900. Just a cord with 2 6 pin heads that both tie into a lead with 3 yellow and 3 ground wires.

Anyone know how to overcome this reliably keeping stock PSU? No luck on Google yet finding out if a 6pinew to 8pin adapter is a good idea.

Almost bought one but I saw "Newer version available, GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1060 Windforce OC GV-N1060WF2OC-" and with no Refund policy... I'm feeling hesitant. Since I'm not in a rush, I think I'll skip for now.

#1 don't buy things if you need to return them
#2 the newer version has a slightly revised bios and around 50mhz more on the OC, gigabyte is famous for this and often has early cycle revisions of really minor details

The six pin is limited to 75 watts, the 8 pin is spec'd at 150. The 1060 uses more than 75, so no go. I've seen some people use a molex connector to power the other two pins but don't recommend it. Some gpu's used to come with that adapter back when most power supplies didn't have 8 pin connectors.

The recommendation above is a good one, replace the power supply. Besides the $30 one there's a great 750w gold rated supply at amazon for $54. That'll get the job done for the next 7 years at least.

If that's ALL there is to it, I'm more than willing to buy it. Are you sure that's the only difference? I was thinking like this version might have some flaws, that has been fixed on the updated one.

cx450m is decent for a 1060. My st-450G is going strong running a 970

2x GTX 1060s in SLI for $500 outperform one $700 GTX 1080: http://www.gamersnexus.net/guides...-multi-gpu

personally I got the $400 GTX 1070 and waiting for the Holiday price drop to double it

can't 100% tell you for sure. unless you had the two side by side and looked and tested you will never know absolute fact

i can say gigabyte historically does these types of revisions and they are always bios related. multiple cards have gotten faster over the course of their lives and it's just the OC frequency they are set with. they likely err'd on the side of caution until real world long term tests could be done. selling a card that crashed because it was OC'd too fast would be an absolute disaster

I have this power supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...6817139006

It has 4x 6+2 Pin PCI-Express Connectors. My understanding is that each PCIiExpress 6+2-pin (8-pin equivalent) connector can go up to 150 W. So it should work fine with this card.

Can anyone confirm or deny my thinking? Thank you!
