The 1060 was great (in 2016), no doubt about it. It was just too expensive for me
But if I had known that the prices would stay like that due to no competition, I would have bought it anyway. But that was never the case before.
The thing is, I dont really need more performance... I'm not even really playing games, from time to time I just want some cheap but reasonable upgrades
And GPUs got expensive... when I look back...
2008 - Nvidia 8800GT for 140€... this was a serious fast card at this time! Like a RTX2080 is today.
2011 - HD5850 for just 110€ brand new, again this was a ******* fast card at this time (again like a 2080 is today)
2012 - HD7850 for 170€... things getting more expensive now, this card wasnt so fast... but at least it was very efficient
And from that point on things went backwards
So I'm used to cheaper prices.
