Hello guys, this is my first post in a while, today is a great day. Soon I will re-join the sacred army of pc gamers and I could not be happier but before I come to you for some advice.

I have picked all the parts for my build already, part list here:

https://www.amazon.es/hz/wishlist/ls/1MAZE4ZEC3ECY

As you might have noticed Im missing a gpu, the thing is that I dont know if going over budget for the 1660 ti is worth, I was thinking about buying a 1060 6gb and save some money but will I be missing out on a lot of performance? I can get a new evga 1060 6gb (the oc version with 2 fans) for around 215€ from my brother, I dont know if 90€ more would be worth the performance gain.

I also have been reading about an alleged 1660 non ti or 1650 but I'm kind of confused about where this card would fall in terms of price/performance because if the 1660 ti is around 30% faster than the 1060 then they would have to make a 1660 non to version that has to perform better than the 1060 but less than 1660 ti and be priced accordingly. With that said, the 1060's are disappearing and going up in price a lot, at least here in Spain so, do you guys think waiting for the 1660 non ti would be the smart choice?

PC will mainly be used for gaming, multimedia and college work, no editing or video work.
Because I don't have a lot more money now I will be buying in the next month or 2 some other things I'm missing but are not essential like a CPU cooler, 1tb hdd, speakers and some rgb stripes for those extra fps gains.

Thank you guys in advance and feel free to comment or suggest different parts than what I've picked. I'm open to all advice (no ryzen).

The most common websites to buy hardware here in Spain are amazon.es or amazon.de which sometimes has better deals, ebay and pccomponentes.com
 
If your gaming at 1080p the GTX1060 isn't a bad idea. It's a great performer at that res. The 1660ti is approx 30% faster and costs approx 40% more. It's nearly worth it. It's a beast at 1080p and is really good at 1440p too.

Z370 is pointless, with an i5 8400, as the CPU cannot overclock. Just go with a B360 board. It may even help offset the cost of the 1660ti vs a 1060 6gb. The 1660ti is close to a 1070, performance wise, making it much better than a 1060 6gb.
