    Thank you, that's what I was thinking but was debating over a 1050 ti. Do you think I should go for the 3gb?

    It really depends on what games you are playing. There are cases where the 1050ti is better than the 1060 3gb because the 1050ti has more VRAM. I would recommend either the 1050ti or the 1060 6gb. For most games, the 1050ti has plenty of power. If you want to play the lastest and greatest games, or better futureproof your system, go with the 1060 6gb.

  11. For 144Hz you ideally want more than a 1060, if you can Id go as high as budget allows.

    What would you suggest? (With a link)

  13. I'm UK bases so no idea where you should buy from. It depends on budget and how much you want to turn up game settings. The 1060 is great for running games at near max settings and averaging 60fps but to average over 100fps it would need settings turned down a lot in modern AAA games. A GTX1070 or 1080 are better suited to 1080p 144Hz or for those people who want 144fps at the highest possible settings in the latest games a 1080Ti makes sense.

    I would look up reviews of the 1070 & 1080, they will show you what performance each card will give.
