If you’ve specifically been waiting for a $300-ish card to replace an aging GPU, you’ll be satisfied with lower settings over the next couple of years, and you can actually find an RTX 3060 at its retail price, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. But I’d set aside $500 for an RTX 3070, and though I settled for a $400 RTX 3060 Ti, I can’t imagine settling for a 3060 instead.

RTX 3060 can be described as a perfectly fine GPU, but we wouldn’t go further than that. It does, however, make for an interesting few weeks as we wait and see what AMD can bring to the table with its RX 6700 and RX 6700 XT.

MSI has put a lot of expensive hardware on this card. While a lot of it hasn’t made it a faster card, it’s one of the best looking graphics cards, and it’s exquisitely engineered too. It’s got so many features to provide more stable voltages, lower temperatures, lower noise levels and well, that’s exactly what it does. It’s everything a gamer could want, really, but it really down to you if you’re willing to pay extra for such things.

MSI’s new GeForce RTX 3060 GAMING X TRIO is in a funky spot… do you get the RTX 3070? Probably. It’s a great card nonetheless, a worthy successor to the popular GTX 1060.

Considering Nvidia’s target audience for the GeForce RTX 3060, it hits the mark. Pricing is obviously all over the map right now so any conclusions drawn today may not ring true in the long term, but at the GeForce RTX 3060’s intended price range, it is a solid choice.

While there’s a lot to like here, the RTX 3060 is undoubtedly not as strong a value as the RTX 3060 Ti. That card costs around 20 per cent more ($400 vs $330), yet provides a significant boost to frame-rates – especially at 1440p and 2160p, where the Ti is often 26 to 36 per cent faster. For 1080p gaming, the RTX 3060 is sufficient, but in a world where graphics cards are freely available at their recommended retail price, I’d suggest that people with a bit of flexibility in their budget consider the Ti instead, even if it means accepting a smaller hard drive or less RAM to start out.

Let’s pretend that we are living In a world where both the RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti are available at their starting list prices (isn’t it glorious?). In that world I would strongly recommend the RTX 3060 Ti at $399 – $70 above the $329 price level of the RTX 3060 but with performance closer to the RTX 2080 Super.

Normally at this time we’d be saying goodbye to previous generations of cards and ushering in the RTX 3060 as the new low-mid range king, at least until we’ve seen AMD’s equivalent in early March, but with the reintroduction of the RTX 2060 to appease gamers, these are strange times. Ultimately, it could be a very good card indeed and a particularly good upgrade for GTX 1060 and RTX 2060 owners. We can only hope prices sit at near normal levels and that you can actually buy one. If you do decide to go for it, Zotac’s RTX 3060 Twin Edge is fantastic. It’s compact, cool and extremely quiet.

Personally I would definitely consider RX 5700, RX 5700 XT, RTX 2070, RTX 2070 Super, GTX 1080 Ti as alternatives, possibly used, even if it’s just to keep me gaming for a few months until prices have stabilized some more.

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 custom models do a great job in bringing out the best of the GA106 GPU and if their prices can be maintained under $400 US, then the RTX 3060 will be a nice option for mainstream gamers.

The GIGABYTE RTX 3060 GAMING OC offers an excellent balance of gaming performance, cooling performance and low-noise. If you’re a 1080p gamer that fancies indulging in Ray Tracing – we recommend taking a look at this card.
