GTX 1060 6GB: Palit Dual or Gigabyte Xtreme

May 13, 2018

I'm about to buy a new computer, and not sure which one of above should I choose, as of now the Gigabyte is cheaper although I'm not planning to do OC.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 XTREME 6GB Graphics Card
Palit GeForce GTX 1060 Dual 6GB Graphics Card

Thanks for the reply.

Currenly I'm trying to decide between two options:
( I already have HDD, SD, wifi card, DVD writer. I will add 8GB more in a few monhts that's why the single module ). I plan to use the computer for playing and general stuff, however I would like it to last for more than 5 years.
Option A:

Corsair Carbide 100R Midi Tower Black Case / Antec GX-500
Intel Core i5 8400 2.8GHz Hexa Core (Socket 1151)
Gigabyte B360M HD3 Intel Socket 1151 Motherboard
Palit GeForce GTX 1060 Dual 6GB Graphics Card / or the Gigabye
Corsair CX550 550W 80+ Bronze PSU
Raijintek Rhea Heatpipe CPU Cooler
HyperX FURY 8GB (1x 8GB) 2666MHz DDR4 RAM

Option B:

Corsair Carbide Series 100R Silent Edition Mid-Tower Case / or the Antec
Gigabyte Z370P D3 Intel Socket 1151 ATX Motherboard
Intel Core i5-8400 2.8GHz 6-Core, 6-Thread Processor for Socket
Cooler Master Hyper 212X Air Tower CPU Cooler with 120mm PWM Fan / I think this one won't fit the case so need to change it.
HyperX FURY 8GB (1 x 8GB) 2666MHz CL16 DDR4 DesktopMemory (Black)
ASUS GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Cerberus Advanced (4GB) Graphics Card
EVGA SuperNOVA 650w GS GOLD 80+ MODULAR PSU Code# PSU0829 Mnfr# 220-GS-0650-V3 1 / or Corsair CX650 GOLD

I already have a quote for option B in for £700, I guess that I would be able to get option A for a little more.
Don't buy pre-builts, rather build your own PC, it'll be a good experience ;) And it's cheaper too.

Prices in Europe are very similar to Thailand. However, some parts in Europe are 20% to 30% cheaper.
Apology for off-topic, but It's good to know that I could find a good reference here.
