No comparison there. Rx 590 if you want the games bundled, rx 580 if you don't want them. GTX 1060 if cheaper(by more than 30-40$) than the rx580 .

In my local currency, 1060 is 27k and 590 is 28k. And I'll also get the games bundled. So, 590 is more preferred?

I have a 750ti and I'll be buying a new PC next year.

Now i have two choices :

1. 1060 6GB (original version) not 9mbps or GDDR5X (zotac dual fan)

2. Rx 590 nitro (that blue one)

now I'm an Nvidia user so I'm not sure if I should take the 590. I don't care about the power usage i only care about the fps I'll get. 

 

now where I live has a high humidity so I'm not sure if that will affect the hotter 590.

 

Being an Nvidia user, I'm a bit hesitant to switch so, i need some advice. (And consolation) 

 

note: I'll mostly play PUBG, bo4, r6s 

note: the processor I'll be using is i5 8400 with 16gb 2400mhz

 

note: my monitor is 60hz @900p (1600x900)

 

I don't trust the YouTube benchmarks since one shows nvidia winning and another shows amd crushing nvidia same settings and resolution.

 

Thank you.

900p is a very easy resolution to run, and both cards will perform exceptionally well. That said, the 590 is definitely a step above the 1060. I would wait until you are ready to buy to consider your options though, as the market might change and there might be new GPUs available, and/or the price of some GPUs may have come down.

There's not reason to go RX 590 if you can get the RX 580 for cheaper because once you overclock them they are within margin of error of one another.

Well, to be honest with that monitor I don't think it will really matter between the two.

Where I live, prices are $75 more than MRP which makes both GPU $3 difference. Now, I'm sure the 2060 being a new card (march 2019 possibly) will be very expensive compared to it's MRP. So......

There's the case of overheating 590 since where live it gets very hot and humid.

So, kinda preference is towards 1060

And 1060 is 1.5 years old while 590 is totally new. I'm not sure if I should take the older one. Though I want to take the 1060.

I've got the Sappihre NItro+ 590 and haven't found it to be a hot card.   My 1070 Strix actually runs the same temps.  Right now it's sitting idle at 36C and while playing BO4 it's hitting 47-50C under load with the fan curve I have set.  The default fan curve it will reach hotter temps but happy over all.  in games it shows it's pulling between 140-160 watts.  With Radeon Chill enabled it sips on power as low as 50-70 watt in game play but I've only enabled that while playing Doom 2016 to test out.

The 590 is kind of new... but kind of not. It’s basically a 580 clocked faster. And the 580 was basically a 480 clocked faster... so... you tell me.

I'd go for an AMD card 580, 590 doesn't matter and buy a 144hz 1080p monitor with freesync for the games you play.
