RX 570 vs GTX 1060 6GB with i7-7700K vs i7-6700K at 1080p and ultra vs ultra settings

AMD Radeon RX 570 / i7-7700K

At 1440p, RX 570 can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is clear that the RX 570 is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. The price/performance ratio is excellent for RX 570 against the competition in budget mid-range cards. With current 4096 MB RAM, the RX 570 can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB / i7-6700K

At 1440p, GTX 1060 6GB can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is clear that the GTX 1060 6GB is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. The price/performance ratio is excellent for GTX 1060 6GB against the competition in budget mid-range cards. In terms of memory, the GTX 1060 6GB 's 6144 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks.

In most games 3 GB is still enough for 1080p high, but it will definitely start showing it's age soon.
RX 570 would take advantage in DX12 games and the extra vram is going to be useful, so go with the 570.

The 1060 is better.
Single fan ? Yes it's enough if you're case cooling/airflow is decent

The 1060 is definitely better but I'm not sure it's worth that big of a price difference.

I want to upgrade my existing system which is:
i5 2400 sandy Bridge processor with 4gb(1333mhz) DDR3 ram
450w corsair power supply
So which guy should I go with
Gtx 1060 3gb or rx 570 4gb because both are in the same price range

the 1060 6GB and RX580 trade blows with each other. The 1060 has a slight advantage +-5-10% in some games over the 580. In my personal opinion I think the RX570/580 is a beter option in the long run . I still use a R9 270x 2GB and I can play most new games @ 60fps on 1080 with medium and some games high settings.
