My current htpc setup is a pentium g3258 on a asus z87a mobo with 8gb ram. I'm looking to add a card for 4K video output and upscaling using madVR. I read on AVS about either the 1660 or 1060 as the card to get. Is this a good one to get? Or can someone recommend me one?

Does anyone know about the heat issues with 1660 cards? I am a bit hesitant with the single fan design.

I don't know about HTPC, but for gaming the 1660 is slightly better than the 1060.

My old 750 Ti is about to die. I need to decide if I need a 1660 Ti $70 more than this. I really like the longevity I got out of the 750 Ti but I'm not sure I need the extra 10% or so of power a Ti gives over a regular 1660.

I've used this card, it is not that bad. While single fan is a bit louder than dual fan bigger heatsink design, it was not hot at all after 3DMark runs, something like 75-80C which is totally fine for small single fan mid-range cards, definitely safe.

Based on the processor, I'm assuming this is not going to be used for any type of gaming? Just videos? If yes, this is pretty overkill... I'm pretty sure even an 1050 could handle 4K video fine... maybe even a 1030.

I've never heard of heat issues with 16XX cards... it may be if a cooler is of poor design, the card runs hotter but nothing major. Single fan cards often run hotter/louder than dual fan models but honestly probably not by a significant amount.

Get the cheaper one. They're both so far ahead of a 750ti you'll be amazed regardless of the one you pick

I've had the 1060 for almost 2 years and I still find it more than adequate for 1080p gaming. However, I don't think this is that much better than a 970.

You can oc the 1660 and it can reach the power of 1660ti stock.

No gaming, just video. Wasn't sure if I needed the more powerful card for upscaling 480/720/1080 content or if I should just let my denon x1400h receiver or Sony x950g tv do the upscaling for me.

A GTX 1050 would be fine for what you need. I have one 1050ti in my htpc paired with a G3258 and it runs everything, 4K H265 264 butter smooth.
