I recently got ASUS GTX 1060 3gb https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814126208 during thanksgiving week...
Unfortunately not knowing Newegg ships to PAYPAL address, i paid through PAYPAL and since it went to DIFFERENT address I just manged to get get my hands on it.
My computer spec right now is..
Rampage III Black Edition
Intel Core i7 CPU X 990 @ 3.47GH
16gb RAM
GTX 750ti. 
Now when I replace 750ti with 1060 it device does not show up on display adapter.
1060 initially worked but computer for some reason went black and motherboard showed error code 40.
I rebooted computer and my computer will no longer pick up gtx 1060.
It disappeared in device manager as well.
When I view hidden devices it shows both 750ti & 1060 and checked update.
I am 100% it has power since it lights up white.
I tried inserting the graphic card to different slot but it does not want to work for me again.
Did the graphic card break already or is there something else I can try??

Did you uninstall the old graphic drivers and install the new ones? Set your computer back to its original state, with the 750ti installed and the 1060 not installed. Run Display Driver Uninstaller WHILE IN SAFE MODE. Once the program finishes and the system is rebooted, shut it down and replace the 750ti with the 1060.


Once the system has rebooted back into normal mode, download the current drivers for your system, direct link provided here. Do NOT go through Windows device manager and select 'Update'.

So I did uninstall and reinstalled and plugged in and graphic card driver is updated. 1060 IS working but....  it is showing lower performances in games than my gtx 750ti with huge frame drops.

It is litterally impossible to play. I looked around and many were having same issue I am unsure if there is fix for it but it appears 1060 is working now.

The one item the Speccy does not list and you haven't provided is the make and model of the PSU.  Please do so.  The minimum wattage of the PSU should be 400W.
