EVGA 1060 GTX 6GB vs 3GB

I'm building my first gaming PC and I can't decide which graphics card I should buy. EVGA 1060 GTX 1060 6GB or 3GB. The 50$ price difference isn't a problem but I just want to know if it's worth it. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

  1. If you game at 1080p/60 Hz and you don't see yourself getting a higher rez or faster refresh monitor during the life of that card, the GTX 1060 3GB is sufficient. Here are some benchmarks to verify:

    However, as newer games come out with greater and greater texture demand, the 3GB of VRAM may be limiting... even at 1080p.

    The 1060 6gb and 3gb are not the same but with different VRAM, the 3gb is a cut down version of the chip as well.

    In my opinion, the RX 480 4gb is the better choice over the 1060 3gb, but the 1060 6gb is the better choice over the 480 8gb. If you want the best performance and willing to pay the extra, get the 1060 6gb...otherwise, get the 480 4gb.

    If the price difference isn't a problem, get the 6GB. It has more processing cores and will benefit from the extra VRAM.
  4. Yes it's true I'm a Nvidia fan boy but that's not the only reason I support the GTX 1060 over RX 480.
    I would suggest you to go with the GTX 1060 just like clutchc said for 1080p 3gb is great for beyond you might need the 6 Gb but as you said that extra $50 isn't going to hurt you then better get a 6gb version it's a little bit future proof
