Windows 7: Graphics Card options

Graphics Card options

Someone I built a PC for (CPU i5-4590, 16GB Ram) is looking at one of these graphics to purchase for gaming. I don't have a clue and Google doesn't seem to help much. So for those in the know any comments if there is a big difference between them would be appreciated?

2) Gigabyte GTX 1060 Windforce OC 6G
3) Asus GTX 1060 Dual OC 6G

ASUS does make great cards, but their support is what makes their products not so tough. Gigabyte and EVGA is the way to go!

I think the person is going with Gigabyte GTX 1060 G1 Gaming 6G. Cost Au$419 (~US$314). There are Rev 1 and Rev 2 versions and I believe Rev 2 changed the cooling system a bit. Both appear to be good.
Moving to a 1070 is a 50% increase in price.
