Entry-level Price for Major Power
The GTX 1060 is a unicorn for NVidia, as it has finally managed to bridge the gap between power and pricing, delivering what could very well be the standard baseline graphics card for any budget focused gamer looking to upgrade their system. Not only does the GTX 1060 provide a sizable bang for its price, it is fully ready to power any VR system – including the HTC Vive
Following the traditional manufacturing process, we knew the GTX 1060 was inevitable, just like the GTX 960, GTX 860 and the GTX 760 before it, though the speed at which it was brought to market this time surprised those of us in the industry, coming quickly on the heels of the Mid-range GTX 1070 Ti and absurdly powerful GTX-1080 Ti.
GTX 1060 TI – The card for everyone
The GTX 1060 is without a doubt, the most powerful budget card available today from any manufacturer, enabling anyone to jump into VR gaming straight away with very little spend on hardware upgrades. Faster than the GTX 980 Ti in most categories with a lower price point, the GTX 1060 is no slouch.
The smaller form factor means it can fit in all but the smallest PCs and its unique cooling systems mean it will not overheat, even in a much more cramped cabinet. It has a smaller profile, low power requirements and provides great performance in its price category.

This is a starter card so knowing that someday you will have to upgrade, though not for quite some time.
