depends on your budget, if u have enough den go for palit SJS, but frankly speaking i still think best to get Zotac Amp. got 5 years of warranty as well.

Hi all, just wish to share I bought the palit 1060. Used wogi $200 20% off voucher, and hoot once I saw the palit 1060 $269 price come back. Shopback works as well on the remainder $69, so got back about $1 back there as well. Total $228 for the 1060 which I think is a superb deal. There might be even better deals this 21 march Lazada birthday event but I rather not push my luck (current graphics card dying anytime soon). Thanks all for the suggestions and help!

Shopback requires a min of $10 to withdraw...

I'm looking to upgrade my graphics card.
Currently sporting a GTX 660 with i5 2400 3.1 GHz. Should I get the 1060 or 1059 Ti? I'm hesitating to get 1060 as I'm afraid that my cpu might bottleneck and the extra money might not be worth. Any suggestions?
