Try this test:
Run YOUR games, but lower your resolution and eye candy.
If your FPS increases, it indicates that your cpu is strong enough to drive a better graphics configuration.
If your FPS stays the same, you are likely more cpu limited.

Performance of GTX1060 and RX580 are comparable.
I like the GTX1060 a bit better because it will run on a psu as small as 450w.
Rx580 likes 75w more.
