Hey everyone

looking to upgrade my Gpu between one of the below has anyone got any suggestions? The difference in price is really making me unsure if it is worth the 1070 upgrade over the 1060. Mainly using the pc for gaming and want to play stuff like destiny 2 and red dead 2 at a good standard, any suggestions are much appreciated :).

Is there any info on whether Red Dead 3 will even be on PC?

Red Dead Redemption 2 has not been confirmed for PC. Only consoles.

I would say if you can afford to squeeze to the 1070, it is worth it. Not only do you open up a big change in speed, you also can SLI (as limited as it is at the moment).

You also picked a pricer brand. Why not https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/h9cMnQ/palit-geforce-gtx-1070-8gb-dual-video-card-ne51070015p2-1043d

The GTX 1070, in many reviews, is extremely good for it's price point as compared to it's larger cousins, the GTX 1080 and Titan XP. Like all Nvidia ok-to-good quality Graphics Cards, it is overpriced, but a good 1070 can be found for relatively good prices. In essence, the GTX 1070, if you can afford it, is the best option.
