Hey all and Happy New Year
Not a good start to the new year for me. My GTX770 fried this morning. Been crashing for a few days so no great surprise but still sad to see the old workhorse finally lack breath of life.
Thinking Viking funeral. Deserving for this warrior.
The question is now what new card to buy
Rest of PC Specs are as follows (Am looking to upgrade at some point but in no rush as eveything ran perfectly)
i5 4570 3.2ghz
16 gig Vengeance RAM (1600 speed I believe)
500 GB SSD
Was running specs inc GTX770 on a EVGA 500w PSU
Don't fancy AMD - really want to stick with Nvidia
Found a 1060 at a decent price. See link:
What is your boys & girls thinking on the 1060 (6GB). I liked the look of the 970 but that has been discontinued and new is stupid money - How does the 1060 fair in comparison?
Could afford to buy a 1070/1080 but had expensive Christmas, need to put a new oil sump on car and need to pay for car insurance in next month (always pay upfront rather than monthly)
Been a bit out of the loop for last couple of years re new parts so any help greatly appreciated
