For UK consumers, the GTX 1660 Tremendous in query is one in every of Gigabyte’s Gaming OC fashions, and you may get free next-day supply if you happen to use the code COMPONENTSFNDD at checkout, too. That code could make it seem to be a cat walked throughout my keyboard, however it’s undoubtedly appropriate. I think about it really stands for “free subsequent day supply” on the finish.

Anyway, again to the cardboard itself. As I discussed above, it’s an ideal selection for 1080p gaming, able to hitting 60fps on Excessive graphical settings for all of at the moment’s large hitters. You’ll most likely even hit 60fps on 1440p, however that’ll probably contain dropping the element to Medium.
To be clear, the £220 worth level is low for the present interval, however traditionally talking it’s really what you’d count on.

In consequence, £220 is a good worth for a card that’s nonetheless fairly succesful – and ought to be for a while to come back, too.
True, you possibly can most likely get a bit extra worth for cash with an AMD Radeon graphics card (particularly as their Increase the Sport free recreation bundle is again from the lifeless till Might 30th). For instance, our present greatest graphics card champion, the superior AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT, can at present be had for £260 over at Ebuyer, whereas the cheaper (and nearly as quick) RX 5500 XT could be snapped up for as little as £170.
