I play overwatch, h1z1, battlegrounds, rust, and csgo mainly. I am choosing between the 1070 or the 1060. Is the 1070 overkill for these games? If u have anymore suggestions for my build i would appreciate it please leave suggestions :D

You're playing those games on 1080? Get an 8GB RX 580/480. Whichever's cheaper

 

Also, get a 1600 non X and overclock, get a better cooler like a Cryorig H7

To be fair battlegrounds is pretty gpu intensive. Mainly because it's poorly optimized.

I don't mind that TBH, it's not in your face - I guess it's subjective
