Is the 3GB GTX 1060 the way to go? 6 GB card are getting overpriced lately cuz of miners

Hell no. 3GB is barely enough for games today, in a year or two it won't be able to run all that well because of VRAM limit. My 4GB card is already feeling limited.

Not if you plan to use it for a couple of years or more. I was using a GTX 780 until mid-last year and I constantly ran into the 3GB limit. Turning down textures a notch or two usually fixes it, but obviously at the cost of image quality. Personally, shit textures bother me more than most things.

Wait until 3/4 GB cards become useless for mining in a few weeks, they'll be everywhere for dirt cheap.

Another wave of burned out 290Xs three years after the first. What a time to be alive.

They won't have been used for that long to be honest.

They were used in the first place though. You haven't been able to buy a new 290X in a couple of years now. Some of them might even be second generation mining cards at this point.

Won't happen, Claymore's miner is already being adjusted to allow them to get decent rates. It'll still be less but not disastrously less like some were claiming.
