If you're playing at 1080p and 60Hz they are both great cards.  I'm seeing more deals on RX 580s right now than the 1060s though.  If you can get either for under $180 US then I'd say go for it.  I'm waiting to upgrade my monitor before I switch cards.

My Rig:

-i7 7700k @ 4.8 Ghz, delid

-ASRock Z270-ITX/ac mobo 

-16GB G.Skill Ripjaws V @ 3000Mhz

-RX 580 Sapphire Nitro+

-240 AIO, Celsius S24

-Crucial MX300 525GB, 2TB HDD

-Fractal Design Define Nano S

-650 80+ Gold semi modular from EVGA
