Good evening fellow PC enthusiast’s, today I bring to you another thread regarding a PC upgrade.

I’ve had my PC now for around 2.5 years and have opted to carry out some upgrades over the next 3 - 5 months. Current specs are as follows:

Ryzen 2600
MSI B450M gaming plus mobo
8GB RAM (Will upgrade to 16GB in coming weeks)
GTX 1050ti
128GB SSD (boot drive)
1TB SSD (storage)
Corsair TX500M Gold + PSU

I’m looking to upgrade the GPU first and foremost on a small budget of (£270) the options I have available are:

RX 6600
GTX 1660 / 1660 Super
GTX 1070

I’m unsure which GPU would be the more sensible choice of them, I also will be upgrading The PSU to a Corsair TX 650 Gold + to accommodate the new GPU.

Thanks for the reply, I’ve been leaning towards the 6600 myself but wasn’t too sure how it stacked against the others.
The RX 6600 is the fastest GPU of the bunch, sometimes significantly but it varies widely depending on the game. I generally have a preference for Nvidia because of their features. However if it was me buying from those I would get the RX 6600.

To give you a rough idea of how they stack up:
