First off, i would like to say i am new to this whole computer thing. I have a GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3P AMD 970 Socket AM3+ ATX Mainboard on my pc currently.
I am looking to purchase a gtx 1060 but i am not sure if they are compatible with each other. If not, i might purchase a new motherboard to go along with my card!
Thanks alot guys~
 
I forget which but I believe the 1060 eats 150 on maximum load but at 1080p I think it should take less under load. Your 660 takes around 100 I'd say, but I do not think it should be an issue with your power supply as long as your CPU has a tdp under 150 or something.
 
Pretty sure it works. The main issue is the power supply with these ; the only thing you'll have to do other than make sure your power supply is right is get the drivers once you get it (it likely will not work properly out of the box)

Hey, thanks for the reply! I have a 500W psu. I am currently using a 660, would a 1060 use alot more?
