What customers say about "Key Specs"
PNY Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Graphics Card GDDR5, 6 GB
  • Great graphics card for gaming and video editing!
  • For gaming this card can play all the games that I throw at it on high settings at 1080p whilst maintaining a 60fps frame rate whilst running dual monitors.
  • Video editing 1080p footage is very smooth (I haven't edited 4K so couldn't comment on that) and render speeds are reasonably fast too.
  • Good performance for the price. I use it for video editing and performance is decent!
  • Superb graphics card. Very fast. Highly recommended for gamers!
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.

What customers say about "Features"
PNY Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Graphics Card GDDR5, 6 GB
  • I highly recommend it, very low TDP consumption and low noise.
  • Runs most games at 1080p max or ultra settings overclockable with msi afterburner
  • Great card! Nice perfomance, and cool under load! Silent cooling fan!
  • Sure you can get those all-out-extreme 'heat pipe' coolers that do reduce temps - but I found this card doesn't overheat.
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.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
PNY Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Graphics Card GDDR5, 6 GB
  • Small and doesn't need to be connected to the psu. Perfect for media center pc.
  • Cool card! Came with all the connectors.
  • Its include multiple outputs on the back of the card for multiple displays to be connected and its so good for me!
  • The card has support for 1 HDMI 2.0, a DVI-D and 3 Display port 1.4 which are capable of displaying 4K at 120Hz or 8K at 60Hz. A Fantastic feature of this card.
  • This graphic card does not have a fix in place to decrease heat.
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.
