[Newegg] Zotac Geforce GTX 1060 6GB $289.99 incl. Fortnite Bundle

I am trying to decide between this card and a Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580 8GB ($297.99 at Mike's, https://www.mikescomputershop.com/product/8382159). If I do not have a freesync monitor and only game at less than 1080P...is there any reason to pick one card over the other?

This looks like something of a normal price for this 1060 6GB, is this even a deal or are video cards just coming down?

Fortnite is free...includes some vbucks etc.

Nvidia will be supporting freesync ("Gsync compatible") through drivers jan 15

CHeck the games you like the most and the respective performance.

I don't actually want the fortnite bundle but it appears it can be sold for $40-50 on eBay (I just checked sold listings)

I think that's a good price, not a huge deal. I was lucky to get the Zotac 1060 6Gb AMP for 228 some months ago, which I consider a deal :S
But it's still a deal if you want the Fortnite stuff or can sell them :)

I am kicking myself for missing that deal. It was on the Zotac Mini, not the full sized card?

The amp is the full-size one. I was kicking myself for missing that too, but I nabbed the Vega 64 for a family member later on which is a nice deal as well.

GTX 1060 at $229 is the benchmark, this is no deal and Fortnite is no perk.

Respect the attempt, OP.

As always, God bless.

Got mine for the above mentioned $229....and then was able to get Amazon to give me $80 gift card in lieu of one of the bundled games....so this was just perfect timing...and alot of luck.

Great card so far....cant complain at all. Was a die hard red zealot...but finally went green....potAto...poTATO...

I would opt for the RX580, my Red Devil RX480 games fine to 1440p, the RX 580 would be a tad better. My GTX 980 in a GT72S I have performs equal/better than a 1060 overall

No, it was on the AMP edition (two fans) :P
Plus, I'm really happy with it. It's really silent when gaming. I tested the EVGA SCC before and the noise was driving me crazy. REally happy with this Zotac!

You're a god! I didn't know about this stuff. I searched the links of the promotion and called Amazon. BAM! 35% off = 80$ refund :D (not Amazon credit :P)
Edit : it was 80.14 pre-tax so I got 92 after tx :D

Fortnite is a perk for its audience, so its not a bad deal for those people.
