    Turn down shadows and we are talking 50-60 fps at 1080p bro, only have pop in in the benchmark gameplay is really smooth and no noticeable hiccups even with full vram

    Depends on the game. I've found games like Fallout 4 are a stuttery mess with only 3 GB.

    I know your 1060 is good m8, but with my 3gb 780 ti, i had tons of stutter with textures at max. Then again, if you don't mind turning it down, then it still has good performance. Especially for the price you got it for :p But i suspect you would have wanted the 6gb version, if you hadn't gotten the deal you got :)

    I had 1070 GTX(sold it) and I know. It eats 6GB VRAM, but for now I'm fine with 1060. Waiting new series

    If we can keep the 1060 3gb under $200.00 U.S. It's a great card for a first/new build for someone that is strapped for cash. Right now the 6gb ones are still way over priced. As are all of the cards really. I have a 3gb and a 6gb 1060. Both PC's have the same games installed. I'm very happy using either. If I didn't build it i'd never know which was which.

    Depends on the resolution though - at 4k, rise of the tomb raider maxed out will use as much as 10gb vram. I've read that it stutters a bit for people with 980 ti sli when running 4k maxed out, due to those gpu's "only" having 6gb vram. There is barely any stuttering for me with my 1080 sli setup though, eventhough i can see that it uses 1-2gb "shared memory" (aka offloads some of what the vram doesn't have room for, to the system ram).

    I get a little bit of stuttering in Rise of the Tomb Raider, but since it's an early DX12 game it's probably not optimized as good as it could be. Regardless I still score 75-80fps on the benchmark at 1080p, FXAA, V-sync off, all settings maxed including pure hair.

    Actually what you need to do is find out what games use only 2GB or vram and play those until the 1160 comes along. I mean if your spending 200 dollars on a 1060, you can put that 200 to use when you buy the 1160 because that will be priced at low range.300 to 330,

    I used a 770 2gb for three years, but its become very apparent that the majority of games in the last couple years really need at least 4gb of vram if you want high settings with good framerates. The 1060 6gb is a great card, but unfortunately the prices right now are ridiculous. I got mine for $280 just before the price inflation hit, and I love it. Probably won't upgrade again until the 1260 or whatever its called will be out.

    yeah my 660Tis started running out of video memory too. Even though they were "fast enough" I had to run most of the games I played(Forza Horizon 3 being one) at 720 res and even then it would run out of video memory.

    Guy 4GB on a card is a must. I play Unreal Tournament and it uses 4GB DDR at times. Your system will thrash and choke and possibly die ok the die part isn't true. Guys your going to eat it with a 2 or 3GB cards. Also in the future 3GB will not be enough. OS must crash and if not everything is going to get slow since the cache is lost.
