What customers say about "Key Specs"
Sapphire Radeon RX 570 NITRO+ 8 G 8 GB GDDR5 2xDP/2xHDMI/DVI-D Graphics Card
  • I using an I5-7500 as CPU and this product as my GPU. I can run almost anything, for not saying almost anything.
  • Love the gpu, far better than the gtx 640 I had before.
  • Great gpu for the price, handles alot of games at full settings and even videos are sharper.
  • The 8gb memory gives a lot of head room for the more gpu intensive games.
  • No good for premier pro or any other video editing. For gaming it was so so.

  • This one is great, I'm playing Red Dead 2 atm and most GPU's cant max this out so I'm happy with the quality I receive and the quality of gaming also.
  • This GPU card offers good, quiet performance for the average gamer who's aging gaming PCs are in need of a boost with denting the wallet too much.
  • This is a fantastic GPU. Not too expensive, but offers a great level of performance.
  • Good gpu. I play Crysis on 60 fps. I have an i5 7500 running with the 1060 6gb and everything works great.
  • It is a great gpu and ive had no problems with it at all, it runs games like the witcher 3 perfectly.

What customers say about "Features"
Sapphire Radeon RX 570 NITRO+ 8 G 8 GB GDDR5 2xDP/2xHDMI/DVI-D Graphics Card
  • The top section houses twin Dual-X 95mm fans surrounded by a matte black finish.
  • However if you boot the fan to 100%, then you can hear it, but I never found a case where I needed to do that.
  • The Card itself is very efficient, and quiet even under load no noisy fans or high pitch coil noise.
  • The card looks stunning 2 fans, LED logo large heatsink.
  • It is a powerful 1080p gaming card, yet does not produce any noise above my case fans while gaming!
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.
