    Question RX 570 4GB vs GTX 1060 3GB?

    I'm torn in between buying a used RX 570 for 150$ (114$ USD) and a GTX 1060 3GB for 175$ (133$ USD). Do you guys think these are decent prices for a second hand card? and which one would you get if you were on a ""budget"" (*broke as hell). Any advice is appreciated, thanks.

    Hey guys. I have an old Ryzen 3 1200 and 2x4gb 2400mhz Ram. As the title says, will it run great with Gigabyte Gtx 1060? I've been eyeing on this gpu since it gave awesome mid to intensive gaming benchmark results. Or should I expect bottle necks along the way?

Just something that would balance the CPU, not bottleneck it. When I build a new PC, this PC will likely stay...
