1060 or 1660 for an FX-6300?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I was originally going to replace my 2gb rx 560 with a 1060 6gb, as my PSU allows it and I found one for only 200$. That was until I saw a 1660 (not ti) for only 20$ more, I understand the bottleneck difference is larger between the two but will it make that much of a difference if i get the 1660? The 1060 will bottleneck less while the 1660 is better performance wise but will bottleneck more.

Then you should just be buying an RX 570 or 580, can be found at $150 or lower if you're going to ebay

 

Or just save the money for an upgrade to Ryzen 3000, some MSI B450 boards can update the bios without a CPU, just wait for reviews on that. RX 570s/580s will still be cheap by july too.

The 1660 isn't that much faster than an RX 580 really. So depending on the savings just go for the 570/580.

This. Your core system needs to be upgraded.

RX 570 can be had for $110.  It is twice as powerful as the RX 560.

 

HOWEVER, the core system will keep you from seeing any huge benefits.  FX limits performance of even the RX 560.  I know from experience with my old 4.8ghz FX-8350 rig.

 

FX is garbage.  It has less than half of the performance of the i7-4770 in many games.

Had an 8120 on my first scratch build, was proud myself for building it but big regrets on Bulldozer. A first Gen Ryzen setup will be a HUGE upgrade and cost little.

I got a pair of 8370Es for 20$ ea, great for super budget builds.

 

OP, yeah get a 570, then save for something like a ryzen 3400/3500
