I have an
i5 7400
GTX 1060 3GB
16GB of RAM

looking to run games in high/ultra better than the ps4 pro with a stable 60 or more FPS.
cheers
 
No. The older quad core cpu will have issues staying above 60 in the latest cpu heavy games.

Also the 1060 3gb won’t always do high/ultra settings (assuming 1080p). 3gb VRAM is also barely enough. The 1060 6gb or stronger will be better for high/ultra. However PS4 Pro as a rough guess is closer to medium settings in modern AAA games.

thankyou, just dont wanna go to a 1060 6gb because it isnt the biggest step up for the money i will have to spend, any recommendations for better cards then?

Personally would go with a RX580 then. You can get them used for cheap. If you’re only playing older AAA titles like Witcher and easier to run ones that are on the Vulkan API (Wolfenstein I believe) then you should be able to get pretty much max settings, just turn things like Hairworks off for example on Witcher.

Used hardware is where the value is, I got a 6600K when the 6700K was king for around 1/3 cheaper than retail and a 980Ti for like £250 when the 1080Ti was launched. So I got an i5 and a 1070~ performance for the same price as it would be for an i3 and a 1060
