I had a msi 970 which had elpida memory and it wasnt a great overclocker, so i was thinking the gigabyte? Whats your thoughts? There's cheaper cards out there from the likes of palit and gainward but i have never bought them before so not sure. Im looking for the best bang for buck i can get, the asus card looks god but its at silly prices imo

My 970 was only 4 months old, got a full refund from amazon due to the lawsuit, i actually wanted to keep it but they would rather give me a full refund instead of £30? Strange.

im guessing the 1060 is a side grade to the 970. there doesnt really seem to be any members posting oc'ing or benchmarks for the 1060. best thing to do is research the card, go by online reviews,and hope for the best.

Like the guy above me mentioned, the 1060 will give you barely 10-15% higher FPS than a 970.

E.g. if you get 70fps with a 970, you'll likely get around 80fps with a 1060 (source http://www.anandtech.com/show/10540/the-geforce-gtx-1060-founders-edition-asus-strix-review/5)

yh i understand the 1060 wont be a huge upgrade over my 970, maybe just guarantees me 60fps, i just said what the hell, i got my full refund on my 970 which sells around £200 now and might aswell upgrade to pascal. Just not sure which one to get. Have been watching alot of videos etc, i think il go for the gigabyte one. Lets hope i can get 60fps in bf1! I Have been seeing benchmarks where the 1060 is beating the 980, the 980 isn't overclocked but its still very impressive.
