Conclusion

If you want maximum details and smooth frame rates at 1080p resolution and don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars extra, Colorful GTX 1060 is an excellent choice. Most of the consumer displays these days are 1080p anyway so there is no point in spending extra money for something you don’t actually need. With the decreasing prices of VR gears, now is probably the right time to upgrade to a VR-capable GPU and NVidia GTX 1060 is one of the very few available options. It may be a little expensive than its AMD counterpart, but the extra money is worth it and provides you with a power efficient, powerful and stable GPU. Although overclocking the GPU results in slightly increased performance, it should be performed with caution as it stresses the cooling system beyond its normal range and may result in unexpected behavior.
