It will be compatible, technically, but the CPU will be a huge bottleneck in most games. I would consider a motherboard, CPU, RAM and PSU upgrade at some point in the future. On that point, what PSU do you have/are planning to upgrade to?

Not sure how the poll stacks up vs the question?

A legit, 3GB 1060, for the right price? Absolutely.

Yes, a 570 is compatible with the H61M-S motherboard. Any remotely modern, non OEM motherboard with an available PCIe slot will support an RX570 - assuming the PSU is up to the task, of course.

As to the poll, because the question is moot, at this point....

You will not find a "legit" GTX 1060 3gb on AliExpress. Period.

"Legit" meaning that it has passed quality control tests mandated by nVidia; and, if it was "legit", it would be sold through authorized distribution channels.

If a respectable name brand will not put their badge on the product, then it's really not worth the hassle....and this is even before considering the reality that you have essentially NO MEANINGFUL WARRANTY on anything you buy on Ali.

Not speaking to the pricing being ridiculously high, but you can find plenty of legit GPUs on AliExpress.
Now, some may be used etc but:

Colorful are a respectable, legit name brand - and have an official store on AliExpress.

At one point, they were on track to be the second largest GPU vendor (by units shipped), second only to Palit/Galax/Gainward.

Do you actually want to buy the RX 570, or the GTX 1060 3GB GPU ? Do you also also have a compatible PSU on your system ? The cards will work on your system, but it might get bottlenecked to some extent. Depends on the game being played though.

i am quite satisfied with an rx 570 4gb, just that aliexpress offers 1060 3gb at similar price.

Those two cards are extremely similar in performance. The 1060 is slightly better in a few aspects, but it's hardly worth buying a sketchy Chinese GPU without proper warranties, risking damage in shipping, and things like that. Plus, the 570 has more VRAM.
