    Today I found a gtx 1060 for a super amazing price and i could not pass it up

    coming from a r9 280 the jump in performance is immense.

    So how is everything going this side of the fence?

    I never came in here while using AMD lol

    The 1060 is the perfect card for 1080p and high settings, and the drivers are great. Nothing but awesome performance from mine.

    Welcome. You are now obliged to drink mountain dew and trash talk AMD GPUs.

    A GTX 1060 is about 80 percent faster than an R9 280, so that is a pretty damn good upgrade.

    Exactly. I thought its not a big jump, but then I recalled 280 is rebranded 7950.

    Actually I wont do that, the 280 served me very very well throughout its life span

    In most benchs and games there is over double the performance it just blows me away

    Although it was pretty much locked down when it came to tweaking, it did very well at 1150/1500 clocks and indeed yes it was a rebranded 7950

    been looking at these as an upgrade to the gf's 970 for far cry 5, but was a bit concerned with the vram as opposed to 6 gb, but prices are massive compared to the 3gb. and her 970 is already 3.5/4gb

    Well as I play at 1080p it is only a few games that require over the 3gb and in those games i just turn down shadows and AA but when i have had the vram fill up its doesnt cause any hiccups at all that i have noticed

    would have been nice for it to have been a 6gb version but honestly what i got it for it's one hell of a steal

    Congrats. It'll last you a few years at least, especially if you stick to 1080p.

    Welcome! Congratulations on finding a card for a good price.
    My card has gone up some 150€ since I bought it on release day.
    And honestly I wonder how crazy the prices will be when the next generation hits the shelves.

    May happen / may not happen. As Nvidia / AMD is only partially at fault right now, biggest price "bumpers" are distributors. They cash in REALLY well right now on this crypto craze.

    I managed to get her a MSI 1060 6GB oc for £270, we listed her 970 on ebay and it went for £200 on bids, madness due to card prices, i only bought it for £120 over a year ago lol.
