What customers say about "Features"
Gigabyte GV-RX580AORUS-8GD 8GB Graphic Cards
  • Runs games fantastically at 1920x1080. Fans aren't loud.
  • The construction is solid. The fans are quiet.
  • RGB control is aweful. I’m running 2 in crossfire and I can only control the RGB on a single card.
  • This is the loudest gpu I have ever heard!
  • I've adjusted the fan speed but god damn, to get it to perform you want best to learn to live with the noise.
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 WF2 6GB GDDR5 PCI-E Graphics Card
  • The fan's don't make much noise either.
  • It runs very quiet and cool - the fans are quiet and don't even come on during "normal" use.
  • Very little noise from the card in idle use as the fans only start up at 50C.
  • I had fan issues with this card when it would spin up to a certain RPM and would make uncomfortable noises which sounded concerning.
  • The fans are definitely the loudest parts in my build.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 WF2 6GB GDDR5 PCI-E Graphics Card
  • Easy install. Only requires 1 6 pin Power connector so I'm guessing it's not power hungry.
  • The card requires a PSU with a 6-pin PCIE cable. Good setup.
  • Very easy to install, turn the computer off, insert graphics card and attach the power cable (6 pins), turn on and install drivers.
  • Easy to fit, small (not too small) and compact. 6 Pin connector which is very useful.
  • 6-pin PCIE power connector, no nonsense fitting/using it on an ASUS.
