blower coolers are loud and not particularly good. It has nothing to do with it being an Asus card -- blower coolers in general are mediocre. 

 

Nevermind he only wants pickup

 

What are the difference between these 3?

grab the ASUS one.
It's my personal preference, but I've never had an asus product die or have any problem, and I've been running one of their motherboards in a server for 8+ years without a problem. Multiple GPUs too, never had a problem, and their coolers are superb.

Coolers basically, but at the end of the day, 1060s are generally not limited by their coolers in regards to overclocking.

He meant the Asus card you just linked (for $400). I'd get the XFX card, they're basically all the same and XFX customer support is pretty good from what I've heard (while Asus' support is basically garbage).

With cooling, yes. You get less overclocking headroom.

While I would recommend the rx480 this 1060 version you posted looks pretty good

https://www.newegg.c...N82E16814127963

 

I know it's not the same but I have a gaming X 470 and they are made very well and are very quiet, nice card.

It's not that huge of a difference on a 1060. The 1060 isn't usually thermally limited so much power/silicon limited.

You have to be careful when making generalizations like that as not all cards are equal. The DC2 on a 780 was good, a DC2 on a 290 was garbage (because one of the heatpipes didn't even make contact with the core).

According to twins the other one (being on sale as it is) is much better value, theres not much difference, or not a $30 worth difference

With your "suggestion" up, it's now going to be impossible to buy for a reasonable price. Better watch your ass, lapdog. You are now being hunted.
