I know, it's B-stock, I know, it was cheaper three months ago. But, if you need a 6GB 1060 this will probably be your best bet over the next month..

I had that same question. Guess people forget to realize that not everyone has the time nor the care to keep up with everything. Below is from the website:

B-Stock Products are units which may have small scratches, small dents, or noticeable use. B-Stock products are Factory Recertified to meet the performance and reliability of a new product of the same model. B-Stock products do not come with any optional accessories and only include the accessories required to use the product as listed below.

This is a good deal considering today's environment. I thought the Ethereum price would keep dropping after it hit $200. But it went back up to over $300. I don't see the video card drought ending really soon.

Was looking for one of these but finally caved and bought a gtx 1060 gaming 6gig. It performs about the same as the old 770 I replaced it with. Would this be any better?

Yeah the PC situation is terrible at the moment. I would really try to hold out if you can.

I paid $225 upon release, $230 for Refurbished after over a year is amazingly bad. I been waiting on a new build but refuse to do it now out of principal

Something is really wrong with your setup cause a 1060 6GB should be performing about on par with a 980.

Agreed about his setup having some sort of issue. I'd say a 1060 is closer to a 970, not 980. Suppose it could depend on the title.
But either way, if you computer produces the same gaming results with a 1060 as a 770, there's an issue elsewhere. Too weak of a CPU maybe?

I expected it to be close to the 970 although i believe even the 970 has higher benchmarks then the 1060 on a lot of things, but I did not expect similar performance to the 770. Also the picture quality does not seem any better even on ultra for most games... Maybe I am being throttled by the cpu? I have the i5-4690K devils canyon edition (whatever that means). Coming from a 770 that is pretty much the period of all my other components as well.

A 6GB 1060 is within a few percent of a 980 on average across a large number of titles and noticeably stronger than a 970. But, we're splitting hairs here. Point was made.

A 4690K should not be holding you back unless you're trying to game at high frame rates (120+FPS).

The 4690K isn't going to be a bottleneck in nearly any circumstance for gaming with these cards. If you're going for 4K gaming with a higher-end card, or you're going for high frames on poorly optimized games, a CPU above a high-end i5 begins to matter, but it still isn't going to be the crux of gaming performance.

How are you determining that they're performing similar? If it's by FPS, make sure you aren't capping it in some manner, such as having VSync enabled.

The quality difference between graphics settings is mostly going to be up to the game, not your graphics card: turning up the settings should look the same regardless of the card you have (just at a different framerate). I suppose in an extreme case it could be because your monitor could be low quality enough to wash out / reduce the noticeable difference, but I've found most games don't look significantly different between High and Ultra.

As for the possible hardware issues regarding performance, the most likely candidate I can think of would be thermals (e.g., having a defective cooler on the card, or insufficient cooling inside your case). Check your temps (SpeedFan or similar will give a readout) and make sure you aren't experiencing thermal throttling.

Are the prices for the 1070 and 1080 similarly inflated for the short-term? I read that RAM prices were set to rise as well. Doesn't seem like it would bode well.

Should one hold off for another month or two?
