3GB Dual fan vs 6GB Single fan 1060

Here is my current build:

i5 7600 (non K)
ASRock B250M-HDV
16 GB G.Skill 2400 MHz Aegis RAM
750 ti
500W EVGA PSU

I can get this https://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=06G-P4-6163-KR for $202 or I can get this http://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N1060WF2OC-3GD#kf for $164. Which of these is the better deal? Is the 6GB worth the extra $40?

    Sorry I hit publish before finishing post. It's worth the $40 extra dollars? I'm on a pretty tight budget so if it is worth it I can barely do it.

  5. Well i'd suggest you to go for 6GB Variant only if your playing at 1440P or 4K resolutions.
    For majority of new games you might need 4GB of VRAM9FOR 1080p) atleast but lowering a few settings might make the game work at excellent FPS at 1080P..!!

  6. +1 for the 6GB any day of the week. The 3GB is not only lower VRAM but has watered down shaders and other specs. And to be honest i wouldn't recommend below 4GB at this price range to begin with even at 1080p plenty of games push above 3GB and you'll want the headroom to avoid issues. If the 1060 6GB is too expensive, consider the RX 570/580 4GB variants, they often hover around 1060 3GB prices and typically outperform it and of course don't lack in VRAM. Hope this helps :)
