Hey yall,

Thanks for the help yesterday - I decided to just go with a 1660 Super since in Canadian rubles it has a good balance of price/performance.

That said, I pulled the trigger on an Asus TUF 1660 Super because I found it at a super low price: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07PFM57FL/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

However, this morning I was doing some reading and found out some models of the 1660 Super use GDDR6 vs GDDR5, which is what the card I purchased will use. I have no problems cancelling the order because I see Asus models with GDDR6 for ~$30 more like this one:

So, should I spend the extra and go with a GDDR6 model? I’m focused on the Asus models since they have a DVI and HDMI, which is what my TVs use, whereas a lot of other manufacturers use Displayport, which would require me to purchase more adapters/cables to work with my current TVs.
