GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 1060 3GB is currently the entry level Nvidia GTX 1000 performance graphics card, based on the Pascal Architecture. It comes with locked memory of 3GB instead of the full 6GB.


Architecture
It equips a GPU Codenamed P106-300-A1 which is a first gen Pascal GPU and has 9 SM activated, offering 1152 Shader Processing Units (the GTX 1060 6GB version offers 1280 SPU), 72 TMUs and 48 ROPs.


GPU
The central unit runs at 1506MHz and goes up to 1708MHz, when Boost mode is activated.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 3GB frame buffer of GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 2002MHz.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.


Performance
The Geforce GTX 1060 3GB is capable of playing most modern game system requirements at high graphics settings. The 3GB version is normally around 5% worse than the GTX 1060 6GB full fat version in terms of sheer processing power. But its the 3GB memory reduction that will hamper the high quality game textures this card can deliver, making it less future proof as more GPU memory hungry games are released.

Will my CPU bottleneck this card, also a Seasonic S12II-520W Bronze enough if OC?

In many newer games like Dishonored 2 and Fallout 4 you will definitely be CPU-limited but it won't be a game-breaking "bottleneck". 520W PSU is good enough to OC, but I recommend upgrading your CPU first before getting a new graphics card

Only if you're playing cpu intensive games, like some physics simulation dependent games such as Kerbal Space Program, BeamNG and Prepar3d. Their listed system requirements seem low but the actual cpu demand ingame is way higher.

I think your motherboard supports 3 gen too, if so an i7 3770 should do the trick, even with a gtx 1070 should be fine.

No bottleneck at all, but get the 1060 6gb instead,not the 3gb version or you will regret if you buy this GPU.
