GTX 1660 vs RX 580 (135 USD price difference)

So I'm looking into buying a graphics card, and locally the best prices I can find that match my budget are (converted to us dollars) 200 USD for an 8GB RX 580 or 335 USD for a GTX 1660 6GB. There's also a 234 USD Powercolor RX 590 8GB that looks kind of crappy in the pictures. What do you recommend I buy? Is the 135 dollar price difference worth it? I'm not the biggest gamer ever so gaming is not the primary use for my pc. Thanks!

Main system: Ryzen 5 1600 | ASRock A320M | 8GB 2400MHz DDR4 RAM | GTX 1060 | 1TB WD BLUE

Server: AMD A6-7400K@4.3Ghz | 8GB 1866 DDR3 RAM | 2TB total storage

On the go: Thinkpad E440 | i5 4200M | 8GB DDR3 1600MHz | 500GB HDD

For a 1660 definitely not, that's higher than the price of a 1660 ti

The 590 would be the best value there, it's kind of close to the 1660/1070 anyways
RX 580 otherwise

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...
 

Spoiler

 

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

All pretth meh or bad deals.

If i had to pick one of those, I'd go RX 590 as long as you have a good enough power supply.

If your current video card is the GTX 1060 in your signature, i would save my money. Its not a big enough upgrade to justify the cost if you value your money.

I'd shop for a used gtx1080 (not the mini version)...I'm sure you can find one for no more than $300 USD that is factory overclocked...and it will be worth the money...
