I will actually write a lot more and post more information about this card with more reviews in the future. So bear with me as I won't make this terribly long.
If you are like myself and game @1080 then this is the best no holds barred card for that I have seen. Yes there are other 1060's that are cheaper. But believe me that this is the cream of the crop. It crushes all games at 1080. I have everything at Ultra or very near Ultra and I have amazing frame rates and consistency. The dips in FPS are few and most amazingly it sips power.
One thing though. The moment I installed the card; I started to play and the temp of the GPU shot up as high as 90 degrees C. That was not acceptable. On average playing CS:GO I was getting up to 80~ degrees C. I had the settings at max, but this cooler is meant to cool even the mighty GTX 1080. SO something was not right.
I So I removed the heatsink, cleaned off the paste and used new thermal paste. I put it back together, and INSTANTLY the temperatures dropped!!!
When running the benchmarks I was hitting 82-88 degrees C with the fans spinning up to 85-100%. Now It is pushing 62-64 degrees C after running it for 30 min!
So if you buy this card, do yourself the favor and get new thermal paste and change the GPU's thermal paste.
Let me say this card is beautiful. I got it for $271 before tax back in July of 2016. I believe it's closer to $300 now, and it's worth every penny, unless you have the funds to spend more and get a 1070 or 1080.
This version of the GTX 1060 comes with 6gb of GDDR5 VRAM and a heavily boosted clock speed. Its only knock is the 192 bit bus instead of 256 bit, but the overall specs of this card more than make up for the bus architecture limitations.
My card does rattle sometimes where the HDMI cables are connected, and I'm not sure if it's my particular card, or the card model, or what. I did a search for that problem, and didn't find anything other than complaints about coil whine, which my card does not have. Adjusting the HDMI cables fixes the high pitched rattle (it sounds like coil whine but it's not, sometimes it rattles when I move the case a certain way when cleaning my desk) so it's no big deal.
With up to date drivers, I can max games like The Witcher 3 and Doom with this card and an AMD FX-8320 stock clocked. This game has no issues playing anything I throw at it, but games like Forza Horizon 3 I have not tried maxing, in particular Forza because it's a next gen game, and because I've read horror stories of how it performs when you try to set it too high. Saying that, Forza defaults to all near max settings, and looks absolutely stunning for me. Gears of War 4 looks beautiful. FarCry Primal can be played at near max settings.
Unless you've got the money and the willpower to get a top of the line 1080, or a really really good 1070 on sale, the 1060 is so much bang for your buck, it's unreal. Keep in mind that the best performance gains you'll see will be on modern systems. If you're still using Windows 7 or 8/8.1, you won't see as much of a difference as you will on a Win 10 system, but you WILL still see a performance increase.
Something to think about is that this card is more powerful than the R9 380 it replaced, and uses >maybe< half the power. I went from 2 6-pin connectors on the 380 to 1 6-pin on the 1060. Overall, my cpu runs cooler with the Nvidia 1060 as well, though I suspect that's because the PSU is less taxed (it's just a generic 600w) and not so much from any computations the GPU does.
I hope this article helps. 4/5 stars because of the random whining the card makes, otherwise it's a BEAUTIFUL solid card. Before I forget, its max safe operating temp is 95 degrees Celsius. The highest I've ever seen it get is 81 and that was on Witcher 3 with hairworks enabled and everything maxed.
Good luck and Have Fun!
EDIT 5/14/17: After some more extended use of the card, many testings, a new power supply, etc, I have decided to bump this card up to 5 stars. The whining went away after I replaced one of the HDMI cables with a shorter one. Apparently the weight of the old hdmi cable was weighing on the card and making it uncomfortable... lol. Anyway, as of today, with a stock speed FX 8320, 16gb 1866 DDR3 RAM, and this card, Prey (2017) runs maxed for me at a smooth 60 fps. I know Prey isn't a top taxing game, but still, it is brand new, which shows this card is still very much relevant. Also, since upgrading to a new PSU (power supply) when playing The Witcher 3, the card now only goes up to around 75-76 degrees Celsius max where before it would go up to 78-81 degrees Celsius. Either way there's plenty of headroom as the max safe operating temp is 95 degrees Celsius, but still, I don't like my electronics roasting. If you're looking for a comparable AMD card, the closest offering they have would be the RX 480/580. Honestly, I would still use AMD, but I'm tired of them constantly recycling and rebranding tech. I'm hoping when I'm ready to upgrade this card in 3-5 years, AMD will have advanced to catch up with Nvidia. We'll see.
