What gtx 1060 6 gb to grab?

At this point, the cheapest priced 6GB 1060 is likely the "best" from a value proposition.... although a dual fan design would probably justify a few extra $.

The MSRP on a 6GB 1060 was $250... there's now and added $25 or so in raw materials (memory), so the "new' MSRP should probably be viewed in the $270-$280 range.

I can't find any available for quite that low, but the Zotac AMP! (dual fan) is only $2 more than the cheapest 1060 in the US.

That would be my pick

Ah, you'd linked the US PCPartPicker, so I assumed.

Lithuania is tough, as a completely different market.... but same (general) rules apply.

MSRP was ~$250 USD / 265EUR (today).... add another $25 or so to the MSRP in raw material cost (say $275 / 316EUR).... so anything in that general ballpark would be 'fair'.

The cheapest on that site is 310, but a single fan design..... with the G1 from Gigabyte (a dual fan solution) going for 320EUR.... that would be my pick on that site.

Thank you for help man. What do you think about 4 cards I posted first? I have msi mobo, and somewhere heard that same brand parts runs better, or it's just myth? What be your pick afterburner or armor edition? Also I read good rewiews about evga sc gaming, it's tiny and will be good for any size of system, but it's only one fan. Very impressed with inno 3d 3 fans version? Also what be your pick up to 350 eur?

The 4 cards you posted initially are.... fine?

The MSI board + MSI card performing better is a complete myth. The vendor does not matter (from a performance standpoint, clock for clock). The vendor as the only variable will only matter in terms of warranty/support.

I don't know what the "afterburner" edition is of anything.... the Armor card is a solid enough card. Nothing spectacular... but at least it's a dual-fan design.

The SC is a very nice card... for what it is. But if you have room for a longer card, there's really no benefit to it (although one of EVGAs single-fan cards is clocked higher than average.....IIRC it's the SC Gaming).

Given the 10 series cards boost/restrict clocks directly related to temperature increments, opting for the better cooling solution (when you have the space to accommodate) makes the most sense IMO.

I don't see any need to spend 350EUR in all honesty. The 320EUR card is more than sufficient, and should OC to rival even the fastest clocked 1060's from the factory.

Inno3D, I have no direct experience with. Their cards do appear to be a solid value proposition for what they are ..... but it'll depend on the price.
I see them all priced higher (20EUR or so, minimum) than the Gigabyte card I linked....... same deal as above, I don't see any justification for the increased price.
