First, let me give you an idea of how much GPU's cost in my country.
Cheapest 1060 I can get: Zotac GTX 1060 Mini 3GB GDDR5 (ZT-P10610A-10L) = 9,700.00 Php ($201.18)
Cheapest 1060 from a good brand: MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X 3GB Gddr5 192Bit = 12,850.00 Php ($266.51)
The 1060 that I want: MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X 6GB Gddr5 = 16,400.00 Php ($340.14)
So I was browsing in a buy and sell group for computer parts and saw somebody selling this for 13,000 Php ($269.62):
Inno3D GeForce GTX 980 OC "Herculez X3" 256-bit 4GB GDDR5 (N98V-1SDN-M5DNX)
Manufacturer's Website: http://www.inno3d.com/products_detail.php?refid=121
My current GPU is the GTX 960 from the same company (Inno3d) and I have no problem with it. I want to have the best item, in this case a GPU, within my budget since I still need to get a CPU (i5 6500) a Motherboard (Asus B150 Pro Gaming Aura) and a Ram (Ripjaws V 16gbx2 2400 CL5)
I know they say that 1060 is a 980 killer though several benchmarks and reviews show that they are equal in terms of performance and the real difference is only the price. So if you were in my position and you have a really have a tight budget, would you go for the 980 or the 1060?
