Gigabyte 1060 vs Asus Rog 1060

Am just wondering which is better? The gigabyte 1060 windforce 6gb or the Asus Rog 1060 strix. 

 

Also is the ryzen 3 2200g a good fit for the gpus above or shud I opt for the ryzen 5 variants instead. 

 

And also r the parts mentioned above future proofed? (what's the maximum lifespan till it turns obsolete like my gtx760 :D) 

 

For casual gaming (games such as AC, Witcher or dota)

Strix is obviously better (gigabyte's competition for it is the Aorus Extreme), in every way but the price tag. Talking about prices, RX 580s are often cheaper than the 1060 6gb and performs just as well.

 

Ryzen 5 2600 of course, since you care about future compatibility (not proofing, unless they evolve on their own to be faster).

 

Expect the GPU to be good for another 3 years in demanding games like AC and GTA (6), the CPU should last for at least 5, maybe 7 years in performance.

Thanks for the detailed explanation. 

 

What is your opinion on this motherboard for future compatibility? Gigabyte B450 Aorus Pro. 

Was thinking of getting the Asus B450F strix, but settled for the gigabyte mb due to budget restraints xD

On B450 and electrically, good cheap stuff comes from MSI. The two you listed are equally inferior to MSI's B450-A and Tomahawk for example.
