Just out of curiousity. I'm not that familiar with canadian economy. But if you look at the average income of a canadian houshold and the cost of the hardware. They are pretty much the same(if you convert the currency). Additionaly the average living expenses in the US are a little bit higher, than in Canada.
So why do canadians always say "our hardware costs much more than in the US", while it costs basicaly the same.

well some cards are just more than the actual exchange rate. probably due to the etherium craze, 1 reason or another, can't explain. either way graphics card market is ****ed up right now.

I can say I was in a similar situation as TC 1 or 2 weeks ago, with around $300 CDN budget I ended up getting the Asus Strix 1050 TI 4GB for $219 on amazon.ca. TBH the card isn't a really good fit for Ryzen 5 1600 (unless you're okay with gaming at 720P), but for me it's more than enough since my CPU is actually bottlenecking it....

I wouldn't actually suggest the GTX 1060 3GB either, because eventually that 3GB VRAM will screw you over. It may be better to just save up the extra money and get the GTX 1060 6GB even though it's over your budget.

Gtx 1060 6gb

$341 huh thats a bit expensive. I do have a question tho, why do things like evga 06g p4 6163 KR, and other different models pop up when i type the name of the graphics card. But it says it has the same chipset, but i don't know what this means. if you don't mind explaining that would be great.


$341??? don't know where your looking at but Newegg has the 3GB version for around $210 and the 6GB one for around $265.


I live in canada, prices are a lot higher than the states.

Bro not even close, do you know how expensive some of the houses here are? a average 3-2 bedroom place in toronto is a bit over $1 million.

Are you sure? a lot of people have been recommending the 1060 3gb to me.
