Hello,

I have currently got the below spec priced up at £730, but I’ve been reading a lot of reviews and it’s put me in a predicament, is it worth swapping the 1060 for the rx580 for the fact you get two free games with it ? Or ? PSB my spec, is there any other changes anyone would recommend ?

1 x Fractal Design Define Mini C Gaming Case - Black
1 x MSI B450M GAMING PLUS AMD Socket AM4 Motherboard
1 x AMD Ryzen 5 2600 3.4GHz Hexa Core (Socket AM4) CPU
1 x Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB (2x 4GB) 2666MHz DDR4
1 x EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 SC 6GB Graphics Card
1 x Cooler Master MasterWatt Lite 230V 500W 80+ PSU
1 x Crucial MX500 250GB 2.5" SATA III SSD
1 x Western Digital Blue 1TB SATA III 3.5" Hard Drive
1 x 3 Year Collect & Return warranty
1 x Xigmatek CY120 3-Pack 120mm RGB Fans with Controller
 
There is very little difference in performance between the two cards. If those two games are ones you want, would have bought anyways and don't already own. It would make sense to get the Rx 580. As you are saving the cost of buying those two games.

If you aren't interested in the games or already own them. Then there isn't any advantage.

So the psu is suitable for a 1060 but not for the rx580 ? Or would you say it’s not suitable for either ?
