    Yea....1060 is a sweet little card/ still hard to believe the performance it gives vs the power it consumes...

    8000 series was OEM only. Most of the 300 series was also OEM only.

    NVidia's G92 was part of 4 generations.... 8000, 9000, 100 and 200 series. Nobody seemed to have a problem with NVidia using G92 across multiple generations.

    The 8800GT was also directly rebadged as the 9800GT....

    I sold my old system with XLR8 GTX1060 3gb and bought new Ryzen system with RX580!

    And I am beginning to regret it! My super old i7 860 from 2009 and newer gpu PNY XLR8 GTX1060 with 12gb 1333mhz ddr3 scored 9500 total in 3d Mark Fire Strike Free Edition with a stock cpu clock at turbo of 3.4ghz and a awesome OC of 2100mhz core and 2250mhz memory on the GTX1060 3gb version not 6gb version got 13000 in graphics score! Well my new Ryzen 5 1400 oced to 3.5ghz with 8gb ddr4 2400mhz ram, MSI B350m Bazooka ,and Powercolor RX580 4gb I can only raise clocks by 50 or 75 or crash/reset got 12300 graphics score same exact bench with a total score of 10300 in same Fire Strike benchmark! So it only beat my 7 year old i7 860 cpu/h57 mobo/ddr3 1333mhz with only a updated gpu and psu by 800 points! Disappointed to say the least!!!

    Get faster ram... Ryzen performance improves with faster memory. Also, why did you go from a Quad core with SMT to another Quad core with SMT? Would have made more sense to keep the GTX1060 and get at least a Ryzen 1600 and faster ram.

    If you really wan't a high/very high synthetic benchmark result then by all means get a x299 system or wait for Threadripper.....If you wan't to play a game at the fastest FPS then that's another story......

    A friend offered me $400 for it. My 1080ti SC should be here Wednesday.

    BTW don't forget the +. It's a 9800 GTX+
