  1. Best answer
    there are no cheap GPUs. Expect to pay up to 2 x MSR (or more) for you choice.

  2. if you live near a microcenter store they give you a gpu for msrp.

    Only if you buy the better part of a whole new system along the way and ask for a manager to authorize the discount back down to near-MSRP. If you walk in and ask for a discount without buying anything else, it'll most likely get denied.

    yes thats right. but you need a whole new platform to prove its for gaming.
    brandwise i vote for msi. great afterservice and warrenty.
  5. NO ONE that has them "reasonable" has any in stock the only stock you will find are the unreasonable ones. You can order straight from EVGA @ about $50-$75 above MSRP but it's every 3-4 weeks they have stock and it sells out in 24 hours.

    EVGA offer the best performance and cooling followed by the MSI versions which also explain why you can't openly find them unless they are stupidly priced.

    Only if you buy the CPU + Motherboard and Power supply from them.

    no, without linking i can say that microcenter is withholding all cryptocurrncy gpu's. if you buy a gpu platform for gaming they will have your gpu.
  7. whoa i digress....i apologize. didnt know i was going to get jumped on.
  8. if you want cheap then buy from the quickr, & other sites like this. You can get 1060 of reputed brand in low price & you can also bargain for it.

    But you have to buy your CPU, mobo, RAM, and PSU from them too.
