  • IN STOCK ALERT WORKS. READ THIS ONE!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by TheARguy - November 5, 2021

    Paid less than retail. Had a $50 off code and a $5 coupon. Was able to get this gpu thru with ifixifixifix YouTube stock alert channel. Full disclosure...i have now 3 30-series cards, Founders 3090, Vision 3060Ti and this Ventus 3060. I have 3 pcs at home and 1 at work. I still need 1 more for the last pc in my house. Kids use the 3060ti and a crappy gtx 745 still. I use 3090 for my home rig overkill gaming setup and the ventus 3060 at work. Im a communication engineer using cad programs. My work pc runs 3 monitors and at least 13 program windows running at the same time. The ventus 3060 keeps up perfectly. On gaming its over 120 fps on warzone with all high/ultra settings at 1080p. The cpu is the i7-4790 and bottlenecks at 100% in my work pc so you can definitely expect higher numbers with newer CPU's. This pc is from 2015 and cpu only has 4 cores. Warzone is the only game ive tested at 1080p on this gpu. Good luck to all.

  • Great for HP pre-built. Swapped out a 1650
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Jonah - June 18, 2021

    This card is a monster for the price to performance. Basically I got this knowing it would perform around a 2070 super to 2070 regular. It is literally on par with the two at a smaller size less power. Love it we swapped out a 1650 in a pre-built HP running a 1650. We noticed it had 1 8 pin Pcie power and wanted to really push it. Works like a charm.

  • Impressed
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Jake - December 4, 2021

    As some of the others reviews have said its not the would be my first choice but...… For the price especially in the dark ages of no cards anywhere its very good for 1440p . 4k not so much (depending on the game of course) but Coming from an old 1080 it seem much smoother in everything and the dlss rtx voice is a nice touch.

  • Had to fight for it but it was worth it!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Noyzi07 - November 5, 2021

    Loving what this card brings to my build. Alongside my Ryzen 3600 this power train has plenty to keep my games and music production hickup free. Had to fight to get it but with alil research and persistence I got this GPU at a good price and not too much above MSRP. Kudos BestBuy for having a fair system that works.

  • Great card, price and performance. Perfect
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Corey - June 8, 2021

    Don't give up, I landed this 3060 on my first drop watch. Sure I was hoping for a 3070 or 80 but this card performs awesome in MSFS 2020 in ultra settings. So impressed, and I finally completed my build. Thanks Best Buy for treating us fairly, and not marking up the cost to some ridiculous amount beyond MSRP.
