Hi!
I'll replace my Asus directcu ii 290 oc video card.
What would be the better GPU ?
The MSI GTX 1060 6gb Gaming X (150$)
or the MSI RX 480 8gb Gaming X (90$) ?
I have the new i3-10320 processor and I need a good GPU for gaming (1080p 75Hz).
Which is the better and why?

Both of those cards are pretty close to the R9-290 in speeds, I would go higher if you are changing to another card. The 1060 is a bit faster than the 480 but for the price difference the 480 wins but both are within about 20-25% of the 290. I'd wait and get another 50-80 together and get a used 1070, if you really can't do that, maybe the 1650 super new would be better than a used 1060.
