Hello guys Need help on deciding what to do.
I recently got a Asus Gtx 1060 dual Oc and found out about a new 6gb deal in a store near us here in the philippines. They say its because of over production. My cpu is i5 3570k @ 4.4ghz max temps at 76celcius aircooled. Got 2 SSDs 1 120gb and another 240gb. 1 2TB HDD. Also have 4GBx3 of 1600 RAM will add another 4gb to have 16gb total soon.

Here are the prices:
Palit 1070ti Jetstream Php21500 = 402usd
Palit 1070ti Dual Php20500 = 383usd
Palit 1070 Super Jetstream Php19500 = 365usd
Palit 1070 dual Php19000 = 355usd

should i upgrade to any of these cards or should I wait for the next gen ones. Thanks in advance.

PS: got the 1060 for Php11000 second hand deal. Can resell it for Php12000. Conversion done with google.

well, it really depends on the resolution you're playing and how much $$ you've got to spend :) also on whether you have the 3gb or 6gb version of the card.
Personally, I would recommend waiting for the next gen cards as the gtx 1060 is still the best for 1080p and above average at 1440p. if you're playing at either of those resolutions, no real reason to upgrade.
However, when the new cards will come out (rumored to be sometime in the next month/s), they'll probably be overpriced founders edition, so that might push your wait even a little further.

Seriously, though, there's really no need to upgrade your gtx 1060 just yet, unless you wanna go 4k, case in which, yeah, a 1070 is still not strong enough to handle properly

I guess it still wont be enough. Im playing 1080p AAA games. Although im still not happy with the fps i get from PUBG. Thankss for answering
 
PUBG?
That game is quite bad, when it comes to a term called optimization.
I would not be upgrading just because PUBG is not running 100% smooth.

If you insist on upgrading due to PUBG, I would rather upgrade your I5 3570k to I7 8700k.
1060 6GB should still be OK, just lower the in game settings.
