abunda_amazon_reviews Replaced a MSI 1080 gaming with this and could not be more pleased. Power consumption is down and so is case temp. Games were crashing with overclocked GTX 1080 and 2x 600 rpm noctua fans. Also Mystic Lights match LED's to case. This card is much shorter and the overhanging independent running fan blows cool air toward memory and I7-4790 cpu. For 1080p at 60mhz Sony TV, with anything maxed out, it's perfect.

Only gripe I have with this card is the price. The card is great and the cooler looks amazing, but the price is certainly up there - nearing 2070 prices.

You may as well just start looking at the 2070's at that point.;;Reviewed in the United States on April 18, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Fantastic Version of the 2060;;Travis;;;I first purchased my rig in July 2017, it came with a less-than-sexy GTX 1050 GPU. When it was time for an upgrade, I researched graphics cards at the price point I was interested in ($200-350). It was a choice between the GTX 1660 ti, the RTX 2060, and the GTX 1070 ti. I ended up choosing MSI's RTX 2060 Gaming Z edition, and I couldn't be happier. My main game on the PC is PUBG, and the GTX 1050 struggled real hard with it. I'd average 40-50 FPS, sometimes temporarily eclipsing 70-80. When I first installed the 2060, I had an issue with my monitor not picking up the signal. I was able to resolve the matter by resetting the bios on my motherboard. After that, everything ran smoothly. After updating the drivers to the 2060, I jumped into a game of PUBG just to see what the difference looked an felt like. The game had reset all of my graphics settings from very low to ultra, which I initially did not realize. I was getting consistent 100+ FPS. After some tweaking of the settings, I found I could average 90-100 FPS on high/ultra settings, or I can get a consistent 110-120 FPS with a combination of low/medium/high settings for various options. This graphics card is amazing, it's a game changer. It puts out power close to that of a GTX 1080 for half the cost. I went with the 2060 over the GTX 1660 because the difference in price wasn't too great ($40-70 depending on which edition of the 2060 and 1660 you look at) and the 2060 has my PC ready for future technology in gaming. The GTX 1070 TI was just a little too expensive for a card that had a similar performance. Ultimately, I paid $40 extra to get the MSI Gaming Z edition mostly because the back plating was made out of metal instead of plastic, and I wasn't sure how I felt about having a plastic plate. No regrets, I love this card. It's brought my PC which was struggling to keep up into a monster. No issues at all so far. I downloaded MSI Afterburner to monitor and possibly try some overclocking, and the GPU idles at 35-40 C. It's peaked so far at 68 C while gaming. The GPU has two fans with a factory setting to not turn on until the GPU reaches a certain temperature. This can be overridden by user controlled settings within the MSI Afterburner app. PC Specs: ASRock A320M Pro-4 AMD Ryzen 5 1400 Quad Core RTX 2060 MSI Gaming Z 16 GB DDR4 RAM;;Reviewed in the United States on July 18, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Beast GPU for the price;;Matt McKinney;;;This is a beast for 1080p and 1440p gaming. however for some people the $40 price premium can be better spent elsewhere.
