I plan on upgrading my PC soon. Should I buy an RX 580, GTX 1060 or wait for the GTX 1660?

What I always do is simply gathering all benchmarks and then breaking down average fps per euros, ive had a GTX460, then a 7850 and now RTX580

Consider the games youre playing, youll see that EA (Frostbite) games will run better on nvidia or that higher resolutions require more VRAM (2560x1440/4k etc)

Once youve settled on a chip, compare benchmarks to card to buy, theres performance differences of like 5% but more importantly heat and noise

The 1660 outperform the 1060 at a cheaper price. The RX 580 seems to perform very similarly to the 1060 as well so 1660 would be better


I'd say the 1660 just because it should perform slightly better, is a newer model, and will cost only $20-$30 more in general. I think the 1660 are already out too, as newegg has listings for some right now.

You should also keep an eye out for some second hand cards on ebay or similar places. For example ebay occasionally has offers where you can get 10%-20% off of anything on their site, I used that to get a second-hand 1070 for $250 a year ago. Just make sure to look over the seller's reviews.


How long until the 1660 comes out?


stop supporting nvidia


What's so bad about them? I see hate for them all the time, but can never figure out for what reason


check if you have a good enough PSU

So I think I've decided what to do; I'll buy an RX 580 because I read that a game I really wanna play runs really well on AMD hardware. The GTX 1660 doesn't have a very good price in Europe anyway.

Thanks for the help everyone.
