from completed build 800$ Gaming/Youtubing(?) PC

Handles everything I throw at it at 60fps max settings. Very cool looking and quiet. I probably could have gotten something a bit better, but this works perfectly.

If you have 220-230 bucks on you, this card is an absolute monster when you consider how cheap it is. Destroys pretty much everything at 1080p and maybe in some cases 1440p.

I am really pleased with this card at the price I paid. At the time I considered going for a slightly cheaper 1060 with less thrills but when this price dropped to £200 it was a no-brainer. The card looks awesome with the radiator pipes reflecting the LEDs, and the shield on top is a really nice touch that cheaper cards don't have. It hasn't struggled at all so far reaching a max of 65 DegC, running everything on max with decent fps.

It's pretty powerful, running cool and looks nice. I don't regret going for a lower tier, but more expensive card, instead the other way around. I've bought a 1060, because for casual 1080p gaming it will be enough for a while. I've bought the 3GB version, because when the 1060's juice will begin to run out, I'll have to lower the settings anyway. I've bought MSI, because it has a superb heat transfer, it fits in the case, and I managed to buy it in the price of a G1 Gaming. NVIDIA vs AMD: it's inside an mITX case, so the lower TDP is a plus, but I'll never have a GSync monitor, while Freesync is affordable. I don't/can't play as much though. The only thing that bothered me was the LED. The logo's backlight was terrible, no full color spectrum, even the R B G colors were faded/tinted. The problem was with the MSI Gaming App.

Nice video card. The red/black color is pleasing to look at. There is a slight GPU sag, but it does not bother me.

from completed build A welcome upgrade

Great GPU for 1080p gaming at almost ultra settings. Only tried the witcher 3 and skyrim so far but it manages both at 1080p ultra with ease and the latter with loads of graphics mods too.
