Introduction

Wow! It feels like the hardware landscape is full of yin and yang. I wouldn’t necessarily call it a light or dark side, but there seems to be several instances of competitive battles being fought by only two sides. I’ll let you decide if Nvidia is yin or yang in this case, but we’re bringing that big green logo into the spotlight for a review of their GTX 1060. Once again, this is a card targeting mid-range budgets, but the effort to bring high quality gameplay to the masses feels a bit stronger in recent years than it has in the past. We’ll have to see how Nvidia stacks up here soon.

Nvidia may be targeting the mid range budget, but you wouldn’t know based on what MSI is doing with their design of the GTX 1060. The Gaming X looks like it takes the card to almost top-tier levels of design and quality before we even get to turn a PC on. I suppose that it could all be flare and the actual build quality could be less than it appears, but I seriously doubt that will be the case. I’ve owned a couple of MSI cards in the past that I really enjoyed so it will be great to see if MSI lives up to their reputation of the past and the internet.
