  1. If and when buying a GTX 1060 you should get nothing less than the 6GB version.

    Here is a revised build with the right ram speeds and an SSD in that build:

    ty for your advice but i am kinda on a really tight budget and not everything ship to where i live and that was the best ram i could find that is shipped to where i live.
    i mostly only play dota 2 so i dont really care about new games or other games i was just wondering will the 1060 3gb be enough for 1080p at max settings 120fps for dota 2?
    and do you have any idea how much VRAM does dota 2 really need?
    and there is like 80$ USD diffrence between the 1060 6gb and 1060 3gb so is it really worth it?

    More vram is for high to max texture mainly, To me high and max is 0 difference, 6gb is more future proof.
