Which version of the GTX 1060 should I pick up?

My old GTX 660 TI is finally giving out, crashing constantly, and lagging in newer games. This cyber Monday, I wanted to pick up a 1060 to complement my i5-3750k CPU.

However, there are about 25-30 different version of this GPU, ranging from 200 to 500+. My budget is around $250 for a new card, so I wanted opinions as to what I should be looking into.

    I would suggest this one, make sure you get one with 6gb of vram.

    Thank you for the suggestion, that's literally perfect in terms of price.

    What's the difference between 3gb and 6gbs of Vram anyway?
  3. The ones with 3gb have 10% less shaders making it about 10% slower. Video ram is used to store the information that is needed for the gpu to render the game. 3gb of vram is low for a new gpu to have not having enough vram can cause performance throttling and stuttering.
