What customers say about "Key Specs"
Zotac GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Graphics Card
  • Excellent Graphics card. Nice, Simply and fast!
  • Graphics loads with those games I do have are handled far better, even at the highest quality on a 2560x1600 display.
  • I simply lower the fan speed to around 45% with the firestorm software that comes with the gpu to clear the noise & that is under normal load & then put it on auto when on a heavy load.
  • Bought this so Son could play games such as Fortnight and Scrap Mechanic on an older PC - just what he needed.
  • I doesn't take up much system memory and the quality of the output is great. In my opinion its far better than OBS.
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"
Zotac GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Graphics Card
  • It also features support for VR, only requires one 6 pin PCI for power, has a base clock of 1556MHz which does boost to 1771MHz, a memory clock of 8000MHz, 1280 CUDA cores and 192 bit memory bus.
  • Size wise it's one of the smallest non mini 1060s. Fits in my not overly large case fine.
  • A great GPU especially considering the lower price, the only trouble I have found was the considerable amount of noise and heat this generates, probably due to the size and fact that it has only got a single fan.
  • It is silent, perfect size for medium and full ATX pc cases, it has some old-school fat copper cooling tubes
  • The fan is not running much due to good cooling system (hence less wear and tear)
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"
Zotac GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Graphics Card
  • Plugged into the PCIE 2.0 bus and drivers loaded up with no issues.
  • It needs a 6pin power connection and the card fits into a Mini ATX case with ease, it's also worth noting that you only get the card in the box (no cables or adaptors so make sure you have what you need)
  • Has a handy little interface called Firestorm for basic tweaking, if you like that.
  • Features wise its a dual slot card and has 3 x HDMI 2.0, 1 x Display port 1.4 and 1 x DVI, so plenty of ports for a multi monitor set up, which this is more than capable of doing.
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.
