Yes, you'll see a big performance boost. From a 3gb 1060 most likley 30-40% improvement.

For about 200$ a 1070 is a great upgrade. And handles 1440p well. With 1080s averaging about 100$ more it a good deal too.

agreed, the 1070 would run a 144hz monitor a lot better and would just be able to handle more resource demanding games.

I'd do it. 

 

I have the 6GB 1060 (beefier than the 3GB model) paired with a 144Hz monitor. It's good but the 1070 is even better by a noticeable margin.

 

In short, the 1060 can do 1080p60 and a bit of 1080p144 at high settings, and a couple maxed out on current titles. The 1070 can easily do 1080p144 at high/max settings and some 1440p60 as well.

You should wait for CES to see if Navi is competitive and if prices drop

i wouldn't wait for two reasons.

1. Navi wouldn't release until late this year and when it does someone is going say wait to see what happens with the next new product.

2. the only reason to wait is if the current tech can't handle what you want it to do. since the 1070 can do what you want it to do then just get it

I generally agree with this, but CES is less than 2 weeks away and is after that, the 1070 is still better it should still be there
