NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 / Core i7-6700K @ 4.00GHz

At 1440p, GTX 1060 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 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 against the competition in budget mid-range cards. In terms of memory, the GTX 1060 's 6144 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks.

AMD Radeon RX 570 / Core i7-7700K @ 4.20GHz

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 appears that the RX 570 is a more capable mid-range card that can play AAA titles at 1080p with 60 frames per second. 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.

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.

They are pretty close, a mixed bag depending on which game you look at. See some tests here > http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2017-radeon-rx-580-570-review.

I'd personally take the RX 570 Gaming X, specifically because it has a good amount of VRAM (below 4GB will start pushing the boundaries). Digital foundry apparently had a great time overclocking them too if that is something you do.

Quote > "The RX 570 is the real star of the show in terms of overclocking. The 7gbps GDDR5 memory runs perfectly happily at 8gbps, while the Asus Strix's 1300MHz core (already running 66MHz over reference spec) easily made the leap to 1400MHz. We re-benched three titles and found the 570 to outperform the reference RX 480."

Hope this helps

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.

Hello, so as you can see in title I'm looking for a graphic card. At this moment I have a 720p monitor, but I'm considering the 1080p in few months. So the question is- What card should I buy for gaming (GTA V, Witcher 3, BF1 etc.)
-GTX 1060 3Gb
-RX 570 4Gb
-Or maybe used GTX 970 with a guarantee (I found some 970s with a year or two years of guarantee).
Oh, and my other components are i5 7400, 8Gb RAM, H110m Pro VD, Silentum PC 500w

Agreed with above, GTX 1060 6GB if you can find it, it'll be better to have the VRAM for when you switch to 1080p soon. If not, i'd personally lean towards the RX 570 4GB and if you are keen, consider Overclocking as they have proven to reach RX 480 performance with a modest Overclock, the 1060 3GB trades blows with it but i'd opt for the extra VRAM. Hope this helps

My current PC specs:

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3
PSU: Seasonic ECO-430W
CPU: AMD FX 6300 3.5 Ghz Stock
CPU cooler: Cooler Master Hyper TX3 Evo
GPU: MSI AMD/ATI Radeon R7 265 2GB
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB

I know my processor is too weak to use a new GPU to it's full potential but I'm planning to upgrade to LGA1151 with an i5 7500 in the future. Would my system be stable enough if I installed a new GPU in the current build?

Hi everyone

Im going to buy my first budget gaming build soon.

I picked this part for my build:

CPU: Core i3-7100
MB: MSI H110M Pro-D
RAM: 2x 4GB G.Skill DDR4 2400
PSU: 480W 80+ Bronze

and I'm now just stuck between Gigabyte RX 570 Gaming 4GB or MSI GTX 1060 3G OC for choosing my graphic card.

Im going to play all new 2016 & 2017 games at 900p or 1080p resolution with high to ultra settings.

I heard the GTX 1060 3G is a little more powerful than RX 570 (like 2-3%)
but i worry about 3GB VRAM for future games. RX 570 have 4GB of VRAM.

So, which card you guys suggest just for games (Current games and Future)???

As mentioned above, the g4560 is almost similar in performance at half the price. Atleast thats how it is in most parts of the world, not sure about your location. So you can save some money there.
Ryzen 1200 would be a very good choice indeed as its a true quadcore. But if you can wait for a while, once the cheap b360 motherboards launch, the 8100 will be hard to beat it that price range.
On a side note, look for a good deal on RX580 instead of the RX570.

Hello,
I'm going to upgrade my ancient pc. I've decided to go with the components given below-

Core i5-7500,
Gigabyte B-250M D3H,
Corsair Vengeance LPX 8gb 2400 bus ram.

One more thing I should mention is that my monitor is 720p.

But I can't seem to decide which GPU to buy.
At first, I decided to buy the MSI gtx 1050 ti 4gt oc, which costs 178.725$ in my country. But it went out of market.
Still there are other models- Gigabyte g1(199$), ASUS Expedition (200$). Should I buy any of these 2. I heard in an YouTube video that these 2 are overpriced for a 1050 ti.

And that's why I'm currently considering 4 different options-

1. Rx 570 4gb (Sapphire Nitro+)= 261.401$

2. Rx 470 4gb (Sapphire Nitro+)= 227.358$

3. Rx 480 4gb (Gigabyte G1 gaming vr.)= 267.474$

4. Gtx 1060 3gb (Gigabyte oc)= 227$

I would really appreciate it if you guys could explain the right, compatible, bang for my buck option for my rig.

My personal opinion from what i heard don't go with GIGABYTE, most reliable brands are EVGA, MSI and SAPPHIRE.
For your config i'd rather choose the RX 570 4GB since it's best value for money and also more future proof when compared to 1060 3gb.

This is my first ever thread and my first PC build so please bear with me.:)
My specs are as follows.
Processor: Pentium g4560
Hard disk: 256 gb SSD
Mobo: Gigabyte GA B250m D2V
ram: 8 GB Corsair vengeance 2400mhz (will be upgraded to 16 gigs in 6 months)
Power supply: Corsair VS 550w Psu (with 2x 2+6 pin connectors)
I have a 21 inch FHD display which i am not planning to upgrade for sometime.

So i've selected these graphic cards (the exact same models as indicated in the title), these two are almost the same price in my region. The main query is, which will be better in the long run for 1080 p gaming in medium/high settings (Ultra not specifically needed) at 60 FPS for three years most? I'm getting mixed recommendations from various sources, so i'm very confused about my decision. Some are saying that the gtx 1060 is not exactly a 1060 but a cut-down version of it, but its has a slightly powerful graphics core than RX 570. Whereas others are recommending the AMD RX 570 since it has 4 Gigs of memory which is supposedly future proof, but slightly loses against the GTX 1060 3 gb version. I currently have absolutely no bucks to afford a gtx 1060 6 gb although it is better than these two. Also i will upgrade my CPU to a i5 7400 next year maybe. Taking these into consideration what GPU maybe the wise choice to buy.

Sorry for the long post:) Thanks in advance guys for your time and reply

Well that's the question... GeForce GTX 1060 is the more powerfull graphics card (even in 3 GB VRAM version) than Radeon RX 570. On the other hand, Zotac has very basic model with only one fan and there's nothing fancy about it. And those 3 GB of VRAM omg... what did Nvidia think of? Asus Strix are usually very good cards. They are focused on low temps. Chances are that it will be more silent. But it's more power hungry (altough 550W PSU is more than enough).

I hate to say it, but for the same price Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 3 GB is better card. Mainly due to it's raw performance.
