Not the 3gb version. Get a 580/480 or the 6gb version

Umm... Yeah it is an upgrade but at that refresh rate the CPU starts becoming more of a factor as well.


Currently have a Asus Strix 980 TI with a Ryzen 5 1600.

Nothing fancy but it does well for 4k gaming.

The RX580 or 6gb GTX 1060 are decent upgrades, you could wait for VEGA and see if they have a card on the 1070 level for cheaper... just avoid the 3gb 1060 as it is a cut down chip, which means it is weaker than the 6gb version, not only has half the VRAM.

I'd get an RX 480/580 instead. It's worth the added few bucks now to get a 4GB (or 8GB, if you can swing it) card that's getting better with age as opposed to a gimped, cut-down card that, if NVIDIA's history is to be trusted, won't be done any favors by future drivers once the 11XX and 12XX cards start popping out.

It is an upgrade but not enough of one.  I suggest waiting for the GTX 11XX series for an upgrade.  Obviously its basically the meme of "wait for zen" etc but IMO its not worthwhile to buy a 1060 3gb.  Save up and get a 1070 when they go for super cheap after Vega and/or GTX 1170


Want to custom loop?  Ask me more if you are curious
