Can anyone here tell me if a computer with the hardware below can make use of a Nvidia GTX 1060 3 or 6GB graphics card? I am considering to update with a GTX 1060 to be able to use four monitors at once, and to get more graphic resources in games on one monitor with 1920 x 1080 resolution and 1ms responsetime. The reason why i consider a 6GB-version of the card is for "future proofing" to be able to run games at a higher resolution after a HW upgrade later on. As far as I have seen, the 1070-version, and not to speak of the 1080-version is far from as good when it comes to "bang for the buck" as the 1060-series. The GTX 1050-series are not much more powerfull than my Zotac GTX 480 1.5GB from what I have seen.
Intel LGA1366 Core™ i7 Quad Core i7-960
Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R, X58, S-1366, DDR3
Chieftec Nitro Series BPS-750C 750W PSU
6x4GB HyperX Fury DDR3 1866MHz Black
Some additional background information: I am an adult that are in to "recreational gaming" during relatively rare periods when I have the time to play games somewhat continuously. This is relatively often during Christmas, Easter, some weekends and so on. So a 1080 or equivalent would be a ridiculous overkill. I also do some video re encoding, but I do not use CUDA when re encoding because I have read that CUDA leads to reduction(s) in quality. The use for four monitors can be discussed, but I have three monitors to do serious work on, and a TV I would also like to be able to connect to.
