You won't be disappointed!

Let's face it - if you want 4K resolution, or Ultrawide refreshing at insane speeds, then you're probably not looking at a GTX 1060.

BUT... if, like me, you want to keep using your perfectly good FHD, 1080p screen that's refreshing at a relaxingly sedate 60Hz and you want to play 'pretty' open world games without worrying about having to dial back the quality settings, then this is a great GPU.

MSI has done a really good job with their factory overclock too, but even so, you can probably tweak out even more performance if you want. It took a little time to iron out all the crinkles, but now I'm rock-solid at over 2.1 GHz on the core and over 10 GHz (wow!!) apparent memory clock too.

This works like a charm with an OCd Ryzen 3 (at 4 GHz), delivering an experience I'm really happy with. No bottle-necking!

Costs aren't so good at the moment (Q4 2017) - but at this level, I think it's more than worth the stretch.

I picked this card because GTX 1060 reviews showed that the MSI was the quietest, and that was important in my build. In normal use the fans don't even turn on. The board is well constructed and the back plate is very rigid - it doesn't sag at all in my PC. I bought the X+ version because I was offered a good deal, otherwise I would not have bought a regular or X version.
