So trying to decide which Gpu to get. Have a MSI GTX 1060 6gb Armor OCV1 for $160 and a Rx 570 4gb for $130. CPU FX 8350 and 16gb ram at 1600mhz. Now I know the CPU isn't good and will upgrade in future. These are my used options in my area. So which card should I get?

If the pricing of RX 470/480/580 is better, consider one of those cards. Just make sure your power supply has enough connectors (RX 570 Nitro+, for example, has a 6+8pin requirement).
But to answer your question, the 1060 should be slightly faster and draw slightly less power, but I recommend you to check some benchmarks.

Have a Corsair tx 750w ordered. Does that psu work? It says 6 + 2 for Gpu pcie? You have written 6 + 8. The 1060 is better but will be restricted with what I have. The rx should run smooth but it's not gonna be a good card in the future. Also no other options for used and don't want to spend alot as I would do a somewhat complete upgrade in future.

Sorry for the late reply.
The TX 750 should come with two 8 pin (6+2) PCIe cables, so you should have no problem powering (probably) any graphics card out there.

They are both similar performes, so I'm assuming you are concerned about vram limitation. If not, what do you fell it's going to bottleneck the 1060?

thanks for the response. Went with the Rx 570 for no. Work great.
