gtx 1060 3GB, Brand Budget Duel

Hello friends

I think this may interest many.

need help and opinion to decide which GTX 1060 3GB choose, all have the same price and as I read in general they are all the same card and all good brands.

I read that these mini versions have higher temperatures but do not have any problem.
I think the most important point is the most reliable or if any of these actually has more performance than others.
So please can you help me determine, if someone has a good argument on choose which of these four?

Others:
I buy this card because I play 1080p, and in my country if the purchase is less than $ 200 do not have to pay import taxes
thanks to all and sorry if I have bad English

  1. I'd choose the Gigabyte. I have a Gigabyte GTX 1070 Mini ITX that uses that same cooler and it doesn't spin until it reaches a certain temperature. When it does start spinning it's actually pretty quiet while gaming. I'm sure with the lower TDP of the 1060 it would even quieter running.

    Instead of those 3gb gtx 1060s, i would recommend getting a 4gb rx 480 or a 6gb gtx 1060
    Check out digital foundry's vid, the gtx 1060 3gb may look great on paper but in real world it gets a lil bit of stutter here and there with high res textures eating away the VRAM and with dx12 being extremely memory hungry, i'd recommend staying away from it

    Well, the thing is I've always had amd, and want to try nvidia, and the problem of buying a better is it costs more and I have to pay taxes in my country ($ 50+- per import), 200 is the maximum without taxes :( , for that i would define for any of these,

  5. Hello thank you very much for your help
    I could buy in the B&H store the EVGA SC version for $ 199 =D I think it's a good deal
    for your comments I think are preferred EVGA and GIGABYTE over the others
    Greetings and thank you very much

    thanks for your comments on the GIGABYTE
