1070? Maybe 1060?

Hello,

I have been building a new pc for quite a time now, bought all the parts except for one thing, the GPU, which I can't really decide which GPU to invest in. Most of my work revolve around graphic designing, photo editing, video editing, but I have considered learning 3D designs as soon as I build this PC.

I haven't played much games in the past 4 years so I'm very outdated regarding new releases, graphic demands and such. The thing is, I have the money for a GTX 1070, but I don't want to spend money on something that I'm not going to make a use of, instead I would get more storage or a better screen or something.

So the question is, as a casual gamer, should I get the 1070 or the 1060? if the 1060 I believe getting the 3GB version would be a better value.

And will the GPU make a big difference in 3D rendering? Or is the 1060 perfectly fine?

Personally I have a 1060 6gb, and im not a heavy gamer. When i do play AAA titles it holds up but the 1070 regardless is a good card. If your in graphic design take the extra money into account for a color accurate monitor

 Get the gtx 1070. Most notably the evga one. It helps in video editing and graphic design, which is what I do also.

I haven't decided yet since I haven't dealt with any 3D renderers, I use all Adobe products, FL Studio and some business process modeling software which is not demanding at all.

It can be pretty program dependent on how much the GPU will be used vs the CPU

ok

there's little to no difference between a 1060 and 1070 in premiere

and having used illustrator, photoshop, and lightroom on a hyperthreaded dual core i5 in my laptop with acceptable performance, it mainly comes down to CPU performance.
