    Sitting just over the 250 line (at 259) is where the 6gb GTX 1060's start. This is great for 1080p and good for 1440p.

    It is a 5 year old openGL card never really intended gaming. So it would be considered pretty slow at most things. I dropped a quadro and went to a gtx 970 ti (about the same as your gtx1060) and it was same in openGL and much faster all around. I later upgrade to a 980ti for gaming on a large screen (1440p).

    It is a good video card. It is among the fastest 1050ti video cards. Decidedly slower than the 1060. Good for high to very high 1080p settings (typically not ultra unless it a slightly older game). It is a great bang for the buck at 160.

    Probably. Measure the length from the inside of your case to the drive cage and compare that length to the length of the cards.
