Specs - 

i5 3470

16gb 1600Mhz DDR3

GTX 1060 3GB


Looking to upgrade my GPU don't know what would be the current best option. I do minor 1080p gaming, look for something with a bit more power so I can get into even higher end gaming.

the current best option is to wait. 3000 series cards are the fastest option of announced gpu. keep in mind that you WILL NEED TO UPGRADE everything. my brother gain 124% increase in frames rate by going from a pentium gold to intel's I3 10100. a 10100f is 80 plus an extra 60 for a motherboard. your cpu is the real bottle neck in your system. if you can spare the $140 now that can hold you over till the resupply of 3000 series card(The RX6000 series are easier to overclock but i'm assuming your not that much of a PCMR 10900k 3090SIL guy.).


TLDR: buy 10100f or ryzen 3100
