At a Glance
  • EVGA's $200 GTX 1060 3GB Gaming would be a no-brainer over AMD's Radeon RX 470 if it had a bit more memory.

    Pros

    • High-quality 1080p gaming
    • Incredibly power efficient
    • Affordable and available

    Cons

    • 3GB of RAM isn't very future proof
    • Limited RAM already requires texture compromises in some games
