Well it all depends what you need it to do. Seeing how the Sapphire Radeon NITRO R9 Fury is going on Amazon for $254.99, Its a win win.
Maybe my eyesight aren't the best anymore, but it seems like the Fury won? On the other hand, there is no way to go wrong with either of them. They are head to head by hairline differences.
i m looking at the same thing man, i think if u have good cooling and good enought power supply for fury take it, if not take 1060...
Sapphire Radeon NITRO R9 FURY 4G HBM with Back Plate (1050Mhz) for 333,- EU (so it this version has 50 mhz more than above) or MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G for 340,- (so has 6gb! nor 3gb) prices my country! above benchmarks when it comes to games seem to be won by the Fury saw a youtbe vid between 1060 and fury: won by fury but different versions What do you think?
