I put the Asus dual 3060 in my son's system. Nice, compact, little card line from Asus. This probably uses the same cooler? That PNY looks like the OEM version, so worth a little extra for the Dual IMO.
I saw some comparisons recently (Paul's Hardware on YT), between GTX 1660 ti, RX 6500 XT, RX 6600 XT, and RTX 3050. In some games, the 3050 was beaten by the 1660 ti. No RTX or DLSS 2.0 "tricks" were tested.
I'm actually a little surprised that card prices seem to keep going down.
There's going to be a higher blip of demand, though, as a developer of Ethereum spilled the beans, so to speak, that the merge isn't going to happen in June. But then again, Pandemic-related lockdowns in China are going to probably cause some short-term supply-chain issues.
Of course, Nvidia has their "restocked and reloaded" campaign going, to try to get some 3000-series cards moving again, while the world-at-large is just waiting for prices to drop to MSRP and possibly below.
Plenty of ETH miners are selling their gear already, too, as they get priced out of mining, especially in Europe with higher energy pricing showing up there.
Combo with Intel 12400 and Asus RTX 3050, save $30. The 3050 is one of the pricier ones, so it kind of evens out. Not really a savings, though, if you just bought a 12400 and the $329 MSI RTX 3050 card.
