I'd go with RX480. It's cheaper, has more memory and has much better DirectX 12 support.

But the GTX 1060 has 1809 MHz clock 

and RX has only 1316 MHz ...

 

don't you think that this is gonna make a big difference?

Nope, you can't compare them this way because they're based on completly different arhitectures.

I'd go with the RX because it supports Crossfire while the 1060 doesn't support SLI.R
