[SOLVED] 1660ti or 2060?

The 2060 is the stronger card (1070TI level performance) so, if you're looking for raw performance - the 2060 would be the way to go. A nice step up from a 970.

With a 1660TI sitting more in line with a 1070 in terms of performance, it's not too big a step up from a 970.

I'd opt for a minimum of a 2060 as an upgrade from where you are.

Thanks for the reply! that's what I wanted to hear. I am planning to order the Strix 2060 from ASUS - had good luck from my Strix 970

Be careful when opting for the higher tier models (like a Strix) though.

The MSRP on a 2060 is $350 and go up from there. The Strix (in the US anyway) comes in at $415. The closer you push to the cost of entry to a 2070 ($480), the viability of a 2060 looks a bit weak.
If it were me, I'd buy a 2060 in the $350-$370 range and not much more.

The Zotac Gaming could be worth considering.
