Hi guys,
I just built myself a new system, and have everything except for a descent graphics card. My specs are the following (so far).

Corsair Vengeance PRO 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 2666MHz LED Memory (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07D1WWBL3/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
Intel core i3 8100 Processor @ 3.6Ghz (no overclocking here)
Fractal Design D-CA-Focus-WT-W ATX Computer case. (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071G4KDKG/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
GIGABYTE B360 HD3 Motherboard ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BQB1CMX/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
Corsair CX 550M Modular Power Supply
x2 1TB SATA hard drives, ASUS DVD-RW Optical Drive (yes, I still like physical copies of games).

Please keep in mind that I won't be upgrading this system for a long time, probally 5 years min, 10 max.

Some of the more demanding games I play are,
Rise/Shadow of The Tomb Raider
Friday The 13th
GTA 5
Fallout 4

My budget is $150 and I want to get at least 30-60fps on med-high settings, 1080p
Here's one card I was considering:

https://www.newegg.com/asrock-radeon-rx-570-rx570-8g-oc/p/N82E16814930008
However, the 1050 seems to be more cheaper, overall, but lacks in VRAM, I honestly don't know if 2-3gb is even enough these days?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Thank you!

The RX570 is a good 60% faster than a GTX1050 and 40-50% faster than a GTX1050Ti.
See review here
RX570 4GB cards run about $120 on sale. (like that one)

I think you'd regret NOT putting a SSD in your build. The Adata SX8200 Pro 512GB for $60 is one of my favorites.

Also, why 1TB hdd, when you can get a 2TB hdd for basically the same price?
What about a GTX 1060? 3GB version
https://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-Support-Graphics-03G-P4-6160-KR/dp/B01KUADE3O/ref=sr_1_27?keywords=rx+570&qid=1567388733&refinements=p_36:-15000&rnid=386442011&s=pc&sr=1-27
Go with it or stick with the RX570?
As for the 2x 1TB, one of them was taken from my old pc, currently using it as a backup, there's a lot of music, pictures, and videos I don't want to lose.

A 1060 3GB performs about the same as an RX 570 (it has 10% of its cores disabled compared to the 6GB version), and at least that particular example is overpriced compared to what you can currently get for your money, at least if we are comparing US prices. Try the filters at PCPartPicker to compare the current sale prices of various cards...

An RX 570 can be had for as little as $120 now, and performs similar to a 1060 3GB...

An RX 580 can be had for as little as $170, and performs similar to a 1060 6GB, typically around 10-15% faster than an RX 570 or 1060 3GB...

https://pcpartpicker.com/products/video-card/#sort=price&c=391

Or if you are willing to spend more than that, the newer GTX 1660 performs roughly 15-20% faster than an RX 580 or 1060 6GB, with prices starting around $210 after mail-in rebate...

Man don't go for GTX 1050 Ti or 1050 anymore I know it is way cheaper but getting RX570, GTX 1060, or RX 580 is way more better than that GPU it is around 50 to 70 percent faster at least you can do games with High Preset. if you can stretch your budget go for RX 580. but 570 or 1060 will do you good for couple of years.

Agreed, I honesty prefer dual-fan card over single for better cooling, found a lot of ASUS 3gb versions on Ebay, https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1312.R1.TR11.TRC2.A0.H0.Xas.TRS1&_nkw=asus+geforce+gtx+1060+3gb&_sacat=0
And there's the RX 570, on Newegg

Which one would perform best overall?

For me both of the cards will do good however the RX 570 will do you better than the GTX 1060 3Gb not that much 10 to 15% more or less.

However the Power Efficiency is that the GTX is around 120watts and the RX 570 is 150watts. Go for RX 570 btw get the 8GB version not the 4GB.
