    Is it worth paying the extra 60 bucks for an EVGA GTX 1060? I literally can't find anything about this online.

    Cooling and clocks are typically the difference, some cool better or quieter as they both use the same exact chip.

    The noise does not bother me that much. As long as I can have the same or close to the same frames per second, I'm good. Not worth an extra 60 bucks. I could do a lot with that.

    Paying 60 bucks over what exactly ? A generic "Geforce GTX 1060 6GB" may be a scam of some sorts , I don't recall many Nvidia built reference cards being sold as 1060s.


    All 1060s go up to 1900 Mhz by default. And in the case of overclocking it's all down to how lucky you are. I have a 1060 with a blower fan and it does 2.1 Ghz and 9.4 Gbps on the memory , yet it looks and was a pretty cheap variant.

    This. The 1060s are pretty low on the power end so theres really no point in investing in big cooling or VRM... It's even questionable for the 1070/1080s...

    'Nother question: What do y'all think of the Ornata Chroma? I'll probably spend my 60 bucks on that, since there is not much more to upgrade for my PC. I honestly like membranes and mid height keys, and it doesn't give you much fatigue like a mechanical. Wrist rest is also nice. Couldn't find a review on TPU. What do you guys think. And thanks for the answers. :lovetpu:

    I've always found i get more fatigue using membrane keyboards and I havent ever used an integrated wrist rest that i found comfortable, I always use a separate one these days.

    So far i most like the profile of the corsair keyboards like the K70, the Deck Francium Pro I'm currently using is too tall for my liking, but I do prefer the browns over the blues on my old K70.
