Where in Aus are you?

Backing up what others have said 2x4GB DDR change to either 1x8GB DDR with plans to get another 1x8 soon or just go 2x8GB straight away to save messing around later and get benefits of dual channel.

If you have 4 rams slots you can always do 4x 4gb which gives you 16gb, but if you want to do 32gb then you will be spending more money

Why did you swap to the EVGA 600B? Its worse than the Antec.

just thought i'd give my $0.02 about the whole "3GB" of vram for the 1060. the fiance has been using a 780ti with "only" 3GB of ram on a 1440p 144Hz monitor nearly a year now with zero issues. 3GB is plenty for 1080p gaming on a gtx 1060 IMO.


And get the EVGA G2 550W PSU. It's worth it. I'd be very willing to say 99% of most pc hardware issues these days are PSU related.


I had a huge fascination with the 250D when it came out, but i couldn't bring myself to do it as a main rig. But i've wanted to do an ITX LAN rig for a while. Maybe one day.

1060 3gb has less cores and less TMU's then the 6gb version.  And no 3gb is not enough now days.
