Final Thoughts and Conclusion

The GTX 1060 Gaming X 3G measures 13.6 x 10.6 x 3.3 inches

For most of my life as a PC Enthusiast, I’ve always been of the mind it’s better to go big or go home. I never wanted to even think about the term “Can I Run it?” It honestly never dawned on me to buy a mid-tier card, ever. However, after testing the 3gb MSI Gaming X GTX 1060, my eyes have been opened. This card absolutely destroyed the 1080p benchmarks I put it up against. It also held its own in every 1440p game I threw at it, only twice dropping below that magical 60 FPS that all PC gamers strive for. This card was even able to produce playable frame rates in the majority of the games I tested it on. Very impressive.

At the time of this review, you can pick this card up for $239.99 at Amazon and Newegg. The price to performance is outstanding for this card and has earned itself the Pro Clockers “Best Value” award. If you’re looking to put together a budget build that’ll stand up to even the most demanding titles, look no further than the MSI Gaming X GTX 1060 3G. In my opinion, the new budget king of GPUs.
