You can pick up a used 1060 6gb pretty easily for 200-220

if you’re not going to do used then I would prolly wait for next gen or just pick up a 1060 3gb

RX 580 4GBs are pretty awesome cards. RX 570 is competitive with the 1060 3GB

Check used 980ti prices. You're gonna need a PSU that can run it though...

 

Are you okay with used? 


If I'm honest I spend more time playing with the hardware than I do playing on the hardware
