Not for that money.

Get a 2060 instead, just check that your pc can handle it and has the required connections etc.

Cheers Tom, I have no idea if my PC could manage a 2060:

The system I have is what Flash supplied a few years back:
Intel Core i5-4460 3.20GHz
8GB RAM
Win10 64bit
NVidia GTX 760

I guess this would beinadequate for a 2060?

Choose a 2060 then tell us your motherboard and PSU then we can figure it out.

@Hatter I’m waiting for the same question in December 2020.

Scan do the GTX 1060 3GB for £157 and a GTX 1060 6 GB isn't much more.

Yes - the motherboard should take most modern graphics cards.

If you can, get a 1060. If not a 1060 then a 1650. Also check your power supply unit and what the graphics card needs to make sure you can power it.

eg. https://www.overclockers.co.uk/evga-gef ... 0e-ea.html - this is a dual slot card and it needs an extra 6-pin power connection.

IMO the 1060, 1065, 1660 etc cards are worthless.

Check out the AMD 5700xt instead.

No point as they’re waaaay over budget unless you can find one for around £160.

Thanks chaps, I went with the 1060 Tom posted (but through Amazon). The AMD is too pricey for now and I can't believe 1080's are going for over £1000! Madness! My PSU is 650w and the 760 is currently connected to it via a 6 pin I think. It also appears to be held together mostly by dust! I haven't opened the case in 4 years! :really
