Hi all,
I am buying a new GPU and I cant choose which brand GTX 1060 to pick :) I read that Gigagbyte cards are not that good cooled (High temps,louder fans etc). I dont have problems with size (pls no strix :D)

I am living in Bulgaria (Small country in EU), MSI RX 480 8GB Gaming (NON X edition) is like 312euro
Its kinda expensive here :D
*I am used to nvidia because of the low temps and power efficiency 0% fanboy :^)*

You might want to read this, It's about the wrong image people have about AMD's new Polaris GPU's and explained here:
https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapc/comments/5mtkqe/please_stop_recommending_the_gtx_1060_instead_of/

Next to that, the RX 480's only use 30 watts more power on average and run at cool temperatures. My RX 480 8GB runs at 63 degrees at 40-45% fan speed under 100% load.

I'm not trying to convince you, but letting you know that ''AMD RUNS HOT AND USES SO MUCH POWER'' isn't relevant anymore. It's not 2014. AMD Polaris is pretty good and runs cool.
