I have the option of choosing between only those two video cards: the Sapphire Radeon RX 480 8GB NITRO+ or the Asus GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB Dual . which one do you think i should choose, which one will perform better, pros and cons.

p.s. - Mainly for gaming ( and some editing )

Before this thread turns into a shitstorm of biased opinions, let me ask you this.

What game/games do you primarily play?

Wow i laughed so hard..... but i really dont think it will turn into a "shitstorm", i already asked all sort of questions in the forums similar to this and people took it quite nice. As for games i primary play, i dont..... my computer is **** but i do plan onplaying games like Rainbow six siege, Arma 3 i guess, Overwatch, NieR:Automata, Skyrim, batllefield 4, stuff like that.

Well, the two cards trade punches in different games, and overall, they are very close in performance even when they do trade punches.. If your primary game was Overwatch, I would recommend the 1060 and if your primary game were Rainbox 6, I would recommend the RX 480. But since you want to play a whole gambit of games, I would just get whatever one you like more or looks better for your theme...

It's actually funny, I've built a computer with each of these exact cards and they are both great and the customers love each them.

EDIT: Here are the builds I was talking about

Yea i did my "research" about those cards knowing they are preety similar overall, i guess i will really just go with the one that is just more to my liking. Thanks you, very much appreciated.
