  1. They're quite similar in terms of clock speeds.
    The difference would be that the Gaming 6G(red one) has a better cooling solution.
    For that difference in price though it's not worth it... you should go with the cheaper card.
  2. gaming version is bit expensive has 8pin pcie connector, with backplate and rgb lights, oc version is cheaper, no backplate, 6pin pcie connector, clock are slightly higher than stock

    would it run games the same?
  4. Gaming performance wise yes... they'll be really similar.

    last question sorry, would I be able to have 2 monitors connected and what other graphics cards are there that would run really similar but are cheaper than the gaming one?
  6. The card will support up to 3 monitors... it has 1 dvi, 1 display port and 1 HDMI port.
    That would be the cheapest variant of the 1060.

    The AMD RX580 8gb will perform slightly better at a lower price compared to the GTX 1060, but it will consume more power(tdp of 120W for the 1060 compared to 185W for the rx 580).
    Also the rx 580 has better multi monitor support having 1 dvi, 2 HDMI ports and 2 display ports.
