  1. That is a tough one, but I'd go 1060 mini. It slightly edges out the 980 but needs less power, costs less, and might have warranty. Here is a video that compares the two, albeit not mini. But for the most part it is still within range.

    They are pretty much the same in terms of performance, I would get the 1060 since its a newer, cooler running, more efficient card, and its cheaper. Are you in the US? If so $325 is very expensive for a 1060, I bought my msi gaming x 1060 6gb for $240. The latest bit coin mining craze has really messed up the gpu market, might be best to wait until prices level out or keep shopping around for a cheaper one.

  5. It looks like the 1060 6gb is selling for as low as $370 new (in Canada, eh), but if you are sure you have warranty then I'd get the 1060. Did seller provide date he purchased it?

  6. There is no warranty but it's probably probably a better idea to get the 1060 cause its way newer then the 980

  7. I have that Zotac card (got it for $202.00 a couple months ago before prices spiked) and it is very good. That and the 980 on on part with performance. It is a little cheaper from what you listed and is a newer design. Easy choice, the 1060.
