The one you should buy is not listed here..and that is the 6GB version. I highly recommend it to reduce memory cap situations and stuttering. Don't make a decision based off of average frame rates. Make if off of 1% and 0.01% lows because they impact your experience more so than any other statistic.

do i need the extra 3gb? i mean, im going to play in 1080p high-ultra details. i thought 6gb was for 4k gaming that's why i put the 3gb model. if so i will consider the 6gb model. Thank you for the reply, i really appreciate it :)

No 1060 model is for 4K. :) You need at least a 1070 if you really want to game on 4K. 3GB VRAM should be good enough for most games as long as you don't plan to max out the AA.

3GB is good, but if you're gonna spend that much money on a GPU might aswell spend the extra 30-40 for 6gb as it will do you better and you have the best possible type of that GPU. I recommend the Strix 6GB 1060
