Could someone help with which GPU to choose? MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X 6GB VS Evga GTX 1060 FTW ACX 3.0

I've narrowed down my pick to any of these cards. Could someone with good knowledge of GPU's tell me which one I should get, or if you think there is one better recommend it. The card I get I will be using for probably more than 4 years or so, so I want to get the most out of my money. When picking out of the ones I linked below they are close to the same price except for the EVGA FTW being approx $50 canadian currency more, which I really don't mind, if i'm getting a little more performance/quality out of it. I will be overclocking any of the cards I get to as high as I can without it over stressing the card. So is the EVGA just worth it or or could I get more performance from OC the msi? PLEASE help

    I just broke down the differences between the Zotac 1060 and the MSI 1060.

    Both the EVGA and the Asus ROG Strix are faster than the MSI and other Asus card in both base and boost clock, however the MSI and the dual-fan Asus are the same speed.

    Another point is price. The EVGA and Asus ROG Strix are both over $300, with the EVGA coming in at a whopping $419. The MSI and dual-fan Asus are both $279. Considering the only slightly faster clock speed, I would say the extra money is not worth it for the EVGA or Asus ROG Strix.

    I am not worried at price at all anymore, Just want the better performance and gaming experience, so which one should I buy, the EVGA or the MSI? Im leaning on the EVGA, as it is onmly a little more expensive but seems to have better clock speeds. I will be OC whichever I get so which will perform better?

    Well I mean, they're both 192-bit, 6GB, and GDDR5, so the only thing the EVGA really has over the MSI is a slightly higher base and boost clock, which will make hardly any difference. If you're will to spend the extra dough for a few more frames, go for it. It's your call really.
