because I getting tired of blue screens when I play anything more demanding than the original Doom or, at best, something like Zombie Shooter 2. I'm currently looking at this one:

https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/Kh38TW/asus-geforce-gtx-1060-3gb-dual-video-card-dual-gtx1060-o3g

the only real reasons I would not get it are the following
I can get a video card cheaper than around $257 Canadian (I have a gift card on Amazon)
I can get a better one that's around the same price.
that one has something wrong with it that is not "the 1060 6 GB (or equivalent) is better" that isn't $275 (unless it's on amazon, then it can be closer to $300) or less because I can't justify the price increase for something I won't use. this is a replacement card, not an upgrade. there's a difference.

note: I created this topic because the other topic seemed to change focus and it also seems to be dead. I also closed the other one.

Get 1060 6gb. Be done with it. Don't get the 3gb.

what part of me not being able to justify the price don't you understand? I've explained it ITT and prolly in the old topic too.

that's like saying someone who wants to get a 1080(TI or not) should get the latest Titan just because it's better. sure, the price differences might be skewed, but the principle is there.

I'm trying to. if my time on Ebay(which is not an option at all and I refuse to use it) is any indication, I'm not a good judge of whether or not parts are good or not. so I need help. I also linked to one I was looking at.

Imo get the MSI Gaming X variant. I can attest to it being extremely quiet, cool temps and is overall a solid buy. If sound is your thing, as in you prefer the quieter GPU then get msi x.

Can't link as I'm USA not CA.

the prices here in canada are lame. but the cost difference between the two shouldnt be that high. maybe buy from the states.
I cant afford a good vacation, so i'm just going to drink until i dont know where i am.

Then go out, get a 1060 3gb and be done with this.
