gfx card sometime soon, no rush though.

my current shite:

Intel Core i5 4460
12GB Corsair DDR3 1600
Gigabyte Z97X-Gaming mobo
Palit stormX Dual GTX 750Ti
120GB SSD
2TB Seagate Sata3
500GB Seagate Sata2
G7 750w Modular PSU
Antec One case
Win 10 64bit
Acer KG221Q


I'm not after the best, but a few more fps would be be nice.
Originally I was going to go for a 1050ti 4gb but now I'm thinking a cheap version of the 1060 3gb would be a more sensible option?

No I don't want to throw hundreds of pounds on a gfx card that my old system wouldn't get the most out of.

How are the amd cards faring lately? (last I had was 2x5770s)
I have 2 monitors, both small, my main is 22" and is freesync but I don't even know how that works and what to expect if I did get an amd card.

Zotac GEFORCE GTX 1060 AMP EDITION 3072MB GDDR5 PCI-EXPRESS GRAPHICS CARD.

Lovely card will keep you going for some time on your current system and not a bad price.

cheers Worsty, is there much difference in these though? (apart from the price is a big plus)
I see alot of the smaller ones going cheaper.

I'd go for the 6GB for a tenner extra:-

The have extra cores compared to the 3GB, so should last you longer.

Having the extra fan will make a huge difference to cooling and sound levels. It's really a toss up between the two. What ever one you go for you will see a marked improvement on what you currently have.

OK I give in, just to many variables to go by these days. Just chuck what ever you want into this and them make your decision based on results.

Price to performance is just to damn close these days. It's now such a slim margin between cards now. Just see what one's have the prettiest lights on it.

why does that site recommend my current card over the one I am thinking of upgrading to?
