    Picking a GPU

    Interesting! Maybe waiting a few days would be a good idea however i've just come across a RX Vega 56 for cheaper than the mini 1070 so now i've really got a dilemma.. Would you still recommend waiting on the 1660 ti?

    Picking a GPU

    So after a few days of looking around i think ive finished my first gaming PC build however im not all too knowledgeable when it comes to hardware so any input or advice would be appreciated. I've chosen a motherboard with itegrated WiFi since using ethernet wont always be an option and the small SSD will mainly be for storing my OS. The monitor also seems fairly good for the price considering it runs a nice 1080p 144hz. Im curious to whether upgrading from an Rx580 to a mini GTX1070 is a good choice in terms of better performance (and maybe a small amount of future proofing?) since the difference between the two is 'only' £70. The likes of a 2060 or equivelant may be out of my price range for the time being but I could definitely look into getting one within the next 5/6 months. What do you guys think?
