    If you want to future proof, get a 1070, even if you have to put away a bit more money for it. In case you want something now, get the 1060 (better compatibility with sims).

    Although, if you have a Freesync monitor, the RX480 will shine. I was going to purchase 1070 last week, but couldn't spend that much in the end. I opted for the MSI RX480 8gb Twin Frozr (just over half the price of the 1070) so I can use Freesync on my LG34UM68 monitor and I came from a GTX770 and it is real upgrade for me. Freesync really does make a difference too. Raceroom is so smooth and fluid now.

    Performance is about the same, price is less and the Radeon's performance with Vulkan is better.
