Nice build. Are the 1060s not being produced anymore? I got a 1060 3gb for $190, and I'm glad I did. The prices arose, and now they are going out of stock.

It’s not that 1060s or any other cards are not being produced anymore. It is rather that high demand from crypto currency mining is increasing (and in some cases doubling) the msrp of graphics cards because GPU makers have not adjusted for increased demand

Yea they have got really high I got my 1070 for 400 in February 2016 and i checked it last week and it was like 1100

Sadly, for PC builders like me, it's not just the GPUs... It's the RAM! I got the simplest green looking 2x4 gb sticks of ram, and it was 88$! I would have liked 16gb in my build, but to bad that ram is in such a high demand.

yea I've been wanting to upgrade to Ryzen that's expensive on its on but the things I do on my PC require a lot of ram so I usually settle for 16 or 32, but the 32 gig set I have been looking at skyrocketed from $150 to like $400 now, so I know what you mean about the ram you were looking at.

Thank you for checking out my build. As far as the 1060s, To my knowledge most of them are but the 1060 Armor I believe has been discontinued. 1060s are hard to find for original price. However, they are easy to find if you're willing to spend $459.99+ (The current lowest price of reputable major retailers).
