Currently in the middle of upgrading my comp. As it turns out my power supply is already 600w, so that's cool.
New graphics card I might be getting is a Zotac Gtx 1060. Any opinions on it?
Zotac just works just standard stuff they usually manufacture. I've had their GTX 560 and it ran fine.
Personal favourite NVIDIA GPU manufacturer is EVGA though. EVGA has a program where if you buy a card and you aren't satisfied with it and say you want the 1070 instead you can pay the difference as long as you send it back to them. Their customer service are much better.
But overall though, the brand doesn't really make too much differences. The only thing you should consider is the pricing and the specs like do I want a 3GB vs 6GB DDR5 version etc? Higher memory lets you take advantage of higher resolution textures more easily and more games are taking advantage of the VRAM usage a lot more these days. This will easily help in the long term for say 4K resolution games and maybe make like 5 fps difference in some games.
For example, here in my Call of Duty 4 Remastered, it literally eats up this much amount of my video ram on my GPU at very high settings.
Here's GTAV on my end
You can check out the pricing at NCIX.
EVGA 3GB DDR5 version
EVGA 6GB DDR5 version (The one I have and it runs Overwatch in epic settings at 1080p)
Zotac 6GB DDR5 version
Zotac 6GB DDR5 mini version
NCIX has the zotac version shown but they are in back-order so you might have to wait few days or weeks.
Just to let you know the NCIX i go to is literally beside Coquitlam Centre Mall.
