    looking for a GPU upgrade


    Hello all, its been a while since i posted here, i have done some research on some GPU and i am slightly still confused as to what to get, since i am unable to do a full upgrade to my current system,
    i have looked at a evga 1060 6 gig card , i am currently using a evga 750 ti 2 gig ( 2015) , i can just about afford a 250 pound card upgrade, i am not sure if the 1060 would create a bottleneck in my current system , i am not fond of the smaller size GPU or AMD and the current game i am playing are a few years old , any advice would be welcomed

    EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming ACX 3.0 GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB GDDR5: Amazon.co.uk: Computers Accessories


    Thanks in advance

    I don't know how much of a bottleneck the 8320 would be.

    eVGA is a good brand, but the card that you provide a link for is a fairly expensive one. I think that there are other 1060s with 6 GB of DDR5 memory for more like 200. (Like at Newegg UK.)

    The GPU clocks on the shorter card are higher than with the full-length card. I don't understand why.

    The short card also uses a 6 pin PCI-E auxiliary power connector. The full length card, 8 pin.

    check some benchmarks. The 1060 is a much better card than the 1050 ti. I can't recommend the 1050 ti at 200.

    Yeah the 1050Ti doesn't look good with that price.

    Are you stuck on GeForce cards? AMD Radeon RX580 appears to perform better in benchmark testing.

    And is usually cheaper than the 1060.
