    I have a 660 Ti (2012) but I am seriously considering getting a 1060 to play this game. Thanks for reminding me, better go read up some GPU reviews. :D

    1060 is a great card for the price. If you go really high end Vega cards are getting massive gains in Vulkan, DX12 and more professional tasks like video editing but the new APIs are irrelevant for about 5 more years now, especially of you want to avoid (((Windows 10))) like I do. I pass GPU requirements with my R7 360 but barely lag behind in CPU with my X4 840, hope I can run it well but I heard the game is well optimized and doesn't look too demanding. I'll wait until my PC is at least 3 years old before upgrading.

    The only question is if the game is a 100/100 or 10/10.

    Are you aware that DRM on Steam is entirely optional (it is a developer's choice), and tons of games can be launched without Steam?

    If a game is on GOG, it is most likely DRM free on Steam.

    Here are some lists (aren't full, unfortunately):

    A lot of apps I have, use CUDA cores for optimization. Plus, there is PhysX related stuff not just in-games, but in those 3D apps as well.

    AMD is not an option, at all. I remember when I had 9600XT (was using nVidia before it) back in the day, it came with a free copy of Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines + VTM Gamepad (and Tomb Raider AOD), and I even was able to run Doom 3 on that card without any issues. Good times.

    But since then, I've stuck with nVidia, mostly cause I like PhysX stuff in-games (like Batman) and also, I am a big fan of TXAA, which is the first thing I enable on my 660Ti (2x only) and it looks really damn good.

    You can use PhysX on the CPU and it really isn't a concern for me because most new games don't use it too much. If Freesync/Gsync is something you want AMD is endlessly better as Freesync monitors are generally 100€ cheaper and do the same thing, and often AMD cards get better performance on new APIs and are better supported for the future (a lot of people still use the 7870, and it works damn well even today, legendary card.) If you play a lot of AAA junk with (((Gameworks))) you're also kinda fucked on AMD due to it basically being sabotage, recent example would be Witcher 3.
    AMD has its benefits, but for a budget card AMD is just beaten by the 1060 which is basically the king of kings in its arena.

    I don't really care about Freesync/Gsync, I have a 1080p monitor which I don't intend to change anytime soon (only have money to invest in card). I know PhysX can be run on CPU, but why would I do that when GPU designed for it is better at it? And again, like I said, TXAA, I love it in games where it's available (like Black Flag). Gameworks is really good, you can call it "sabotage" all you want, but it actually adds to the visuals a lot and as a PC gamer, I want all those sweet visual upgrades in my games (like PhysX water to cloth effects). I DO play a lot of AAA junk along with Indie junk, so yes, AMD is a bad choice for me.

    Anyway, I am on Windows 7, don't really intend to upgrade to Windows 10 anytime soon so DX12 is of no concern (and there are no DX12 exclusives that I can't live without). As for Vulkan, I can already play Doom with Vulkan on my 660Ti and it runs fine, I'm sure it'll run way better on 1060 as well.

    Also, all AMD cards were already more expensive than nVidia cards in my country. And thanks to mining, they are even more expensive than before. :lol:
