Hello everyone, need help to choice best variant.
I have Phenom x6 1090t black with 4.1 ghz oc (2600 nb), ddr3 16gb ram and 700w psu
After my gtx 670 4gb has gone, i intend to buy a new card, kind of rx570/msi1050ti (non rx470 used).I considering more rx570, but i have doubt about it. I know this cpu is too old and will have been taking back performance some new card, but in the nearest future i'm not suppose to upgrade my rig, because i playing just small times. So i explore such rigs (phenom+rx480/470) and i have done conclusion that rx 570 is not bad choice, looks like 5-10% bottlenecking. And so i need yours good advice for this. Thank you in advance.
P. S: For me, not more 10% bottleneck is good, I don't expect to my old cpu can handle with gpu like rx 570 about 100% but more than 85% would be good.

Your overclocked X6 1090T processor will absolutely handle the RX 570 or GTX 1060 3-6GB. Bottleneck should be ~2-6%, not that bad. So a RX 570 or GTX 1060 should give atleast at CPU demanding games 92% its power, and 100% in GPU demanding games.
 
Since you are overclocking, I'm going to assume you have a fairly decent motherboard. So hopefully compatibility is not an issue. Therefore an RX 570 or 1060 3gb would be the most to pair with it. This will give you the best possible 1080p experience in games which do not need more CPU power than what you have. If you want to save money I'd say the 1050 is the card to pick. I don't think the 1050 Ti is one you should bother with. It's not fast enough to be worth the extra cost over the 1050, but not cheap enough to be worth the loss in performance vs the 570 or 1060.

Thx, but I'm considering only new card. In my country used gpus, especially AMD series its very bad lottery. And buying card on eBay (+ delivery) equal buying a new similar gpu

How much bottleneck? Like 10-15%? With rx 570 and 1060? If it's true, it's good for me. I don't expect that my cpu doing magic. But more than 85% using in game is good for me.
