Why is this necessary when I want to create a poll? Anyway, I was wondering which was you’d be better for gaming on now a little older titles like GTAV and Assetto Corsa.

The RX 580 is a better card in general. GTA V runs better on Nvidia cards and the 580 and 1060 3GB will be quite evenly matched in that specific title.

If those are your two choices, get the 580. The card it directly competes with is the 6gb 1060.

Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9 Ghz  | Gigabyte AB350M Gaming 3 |  PaliT GTX 1050Ti  |  8gb Kingston HyperX Fury @ 2933 Mhz  |  Corsair CX550m  |  1 TB WD Blue HDD


Inside some old case I found lying around.

GTA 5 will want more than 3gb of VRAM. Assetto Corsa runs better on Nvidia, and VRAM isn't really a factor in that, so the 1060 would be marginally better. All in all, get the 580.

If you're fine with medium to high settings on a 1080p screen, but without very high and ultra, go for the 1060 3gb if it is significantly cheaper, but in all other cases definitely with a 580. Most games on very high&ultra settings are around 3+- gigabytes vram and if you don't have enough of it, you may experience stutter, you won't in most games, but you might.

 

Plus, if you are going to use it for 2 to 5 years, count in the fact that games use more and more vram every year, so who knows, maybe in 3 years you would need 4gb just for medium/high settings.

 

Also, RX 400 and 500 series are somewhat better in DX12 and Vulkan games, so they might age better than a 1060 if games start using dx12&vulkan more.

 

As for the 1060 6gb version vs RX 580, if you can choose, look at benchmarks on Youtube, there's loads of them and decide which games you prefer, since those 2 cards are about 50:50, one is better in one game, second one is better in the other game, but again, RX is better with dx12&vulkan, so..yeah, it depends on how great of a deal you can find, but in general, stay away from the 1060 3gb, it's a decent card for now, but the 3 gigs might kill it in a few years.
