RTX 3060 Ray-tracing Similar to a 1080 Ti 22k Firestrike score which isn't truly the best but not terrible
Loud Lacks features MSI Support is horrendous Lackluster cooling Expensive
As I suspected, loud and lacks features. MSI has been the same since. You'd expect three fans to be more quieter then two but oh boy that is far from the case. Unless you see this retailing for an extremely good price, there are better options within this price range of 3060s. I would invest much more into the TUF then this one.

Runs most games at high settings with no stutter or lag
It does have its limits. I had stutter while playing Deliver Us the Moon at highest settings with ray tracing on.
Decent card on the cheaper side, does its job but if you want the highest graphics on the latest games, you might want to look into a better card just to be safe and futureproof your build.

Now that prices are coming down, this GPU won’t disappoint you. It does what it says it can do. It handles any game out there right now in high settings like warzone, cyberpunk etc… if you don’t want to spend a ton of money on a GPU but still wanna get good frames and play on high settings this is the one for you.
RGB lighting would have been nice if you have a dark case all you will see is a long black block installed but that’s just a minor grievance. Maybe waiting for 40 series GPU’s because the power of those are supposed to be quite a bit more but not sure how they will be priced. Prices on these 30 series could go down more or Nvidia might limit 40 series stock until more 30 series are sold, who knows.
All in all, a good GPU for a decent price and hopefully going down more. Fits in a mid tower PC no problem. If you can’t wait for a 40 series I would recommend this but if you can wait it might be worth your time to see how prices do down the road.

I purchased this for my first ever PC build (with a 1080p monitor). Along with my 5600x and 16GB of 3200 MHz RAM, I am getting a consistent 350 FPS on CSGO (max quality) and over 144 FPS on Lost Ark (max quality, game is capped at 144 FPS by default). MSI Afterburner is showing the GPU at 53C in Lost Ark (with 3x Noctua fans up front).
Weaknesses of the GPU itself? I can't think of any. I am getting what I expect. A light up logo would've been a nice touch. For all the gamers out there, I'd also like to see GPU prices continue to drop closer to MSRP.
Great GPU for a mid range performance build. Good performance and more than adequate cooling for my purposes. From a person that has been shopping for GPUs, based on what I have seen, we are moving past the supply shortage slowly but surely. Don't feel the need to buy a card just because it's available. Buy a GPU you believe in, one you won't feel buyer's remorse after buying. I recommend this one.
