What customers say about "Key Specs"
MSI GeForce GTX 1060 3GT OC 3 GB GDDR5 memory PCI Express 3 Dual Fan Graphics Card
  • I used this card in my new rig. I have not played any games yet. I mainly got this for video editing and daily use on my 1080p monitor. I have had no complaints since.
  • Excellent video card. Extremely powerful, at 1080p it runs all games over 60fps even with maximum/ultra quality settings.
  • Runs all of my video needs well and is quiet
  • Amazing graphics card, i can easily play games over 60fps at 1080p(actually overkill for 60@1080p) but the true test will come soon when i try gaming on a 21.9 lg 34 inch monitor.
  • Great graphics card, with my setup I haven't been challenged by any game yet. I can render a 15 minute 1080p 60fps video in the matter of minutes so that's always good.
MSI NVIDIA GTX 1060 ARMOR 3G OCV1 3 GB GDDR5 256 Bit Memory PCI-Express Gaming Graphics Card
  • A beast! This thing handles anything I throw at it like a champagne and if you're a lucky customer and get he Samsung memory controller like me then you'll be blown away with how well it overclocks.
  • Can overclock the card to 1080 performance. Memory overclocks very well.
  • Amazing performance as a single card. SLI/crossfire currently has issue's in games (both amd+nvidia).
  • Works a treat and it has Samsung memory, sweet as toffee apple :)
  • Perfomance is perfect. I chose this one for the silence, over other ones which look much better but are apparently louder.

What customers say about "Features"
MSI GeForce GTX 1060 3GT OC 3 GB GDDR5 memory PCI Express 3 Dual Fan Graphics Card
  • The water cooling block is one of the best features, you can expect to see temps well below 35c and (under 100% max load) 45c.
  • Awesome graphics card without a VR, its a perfect alternative if you don't want that feature!
  • Amazing card. really exellent performer, nice build quality, the only feature that will be bood are a lighting built in, and a nice sli bridge.. but the card is awesome..
  • The card still features the zero fan spin for when your gaming needs are minimal so the card makes virtually no noise at all especially at idle.
  • The card was so large that it would not fit into my computer so I never had a chance to find out if it was any good.
MSI NVIDIA GTX 1060 ARMOR 3G OCV1 3 GB GDDR5 256 Bit Memory PCI-Express Gaming Graphics Card
  • This card runs cool even at overclock. So, it may not be required.
  • Also keeps really cool and fans only kick in when needed so keeps noise to a minimum.
  • It was cool, quiet, and overclocked very well.
  • The card runs cool and make little to no noise when the fans are needed.
  • Excellent card! Been using for months now and it runs cool, is lightening fast and is of great build quality.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
MSI GeForce GTX 1060 3GT OC 3 GB GDDR5 memory PCI Express 3 Dual Fan Graphics Card
  • Yes it had x3 DP and a HDMI connections available but I have a 144hz acer predator monitor and wanted not only decent refresh rates but a card which had the grunt to keep me ahead.
  • Its well build and comes factory overclocked.you will need 6pin and 8pin connections to power this beast.
  • Port wise you have 3x Display ports, 1x HDMI and 1x DVI-D and it can support up to 4 monitors at once at a maximum resolution of 7680 x 4320.
  • It has enough ports in the rear for four monitors (I have three plus 1 TV). A must-buy for any big budget gamer.
  • My original glowing review of this card is no more. It's going back to Amazon (cheers guys!) after ALL THREE DisplayPort ports have stopped working once drivers are installed.
MSI NVIDIA GTX 1060 ARMOR 3G OCV1 3 GB GDDR5 256 Bit Memory PCI-Express Gaming Graphics Card
  • I would give this 1 star less than 5 because the only aesthetic difference between this and a 1080 and 1070 is the power connect, and that is it.
  • I game mostly at 1080p (on a 1080p TV) over HDMI so this card is probably overkill for my needs, but I do get access to a 1440p monitor every so often and the games just take on that extra sparkle.
  • Also, it's HDMI and Displayport only. No DVI.
  • You will also need to buy convertors from Display Port to HDMI if you are looking to go like nvidia surround with this.
