3GB GTX 1060 Vs 4GB RX 570: Which Should You Buy In 2018?

Putting the used PC market to the test.

For a PC gamer, graphics cards are usually both the most expensive component but the most essential.  Generally speaking, you’ll want to spend as much as you can justify on your graphics card.

Sort of.

The truth is, even older graphics cards can still produce beautiful graphics at 1080p resolution – which is enough for most gamers.  The never-ending quest for better graphics can be little more than a money pit for all but the most dedicated PC gaming enthusiasts.

One of GrownGaming’s favourite YouTubers, RandomGaminginHD, buys into this ethos.  We’ve written about his previous videos, including the $1.55 graphics card that can run Bioshock: Infinite and also the decent £120/$150 gaming pc build.  It just goes to show that PC gaming is accessible to gamers on a budget.

In a recent video, RandomGaminginHD takes advantage of the used PC hardware market and picks up both the 3GB GTX 1060 from Nvidia and the 4GB RX 570 from AMD, which are selling for very similar prices.  He goes on to put them through their paces in the following games:

  • Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
  • Forza Horizon 4
  • Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds
  • The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt
  • Rainbow Six Siege
  • Fortnite
  • Call of Duty: WW2
