Hard pick, they seem very even benchmark wise though the ATI seems a little cheaper and has 2gigs more ram as well as has a bigger memory bus as for the geforce it seems to cost a little big more but pulls a little harder, my self id have to do more research on the topic and in the past i would have gone with the nvidia, kind of a nvidia fan boy here, in the past my main thing about ATI cards "10 years ago" was that they were harder to mod/overclock/tweak apps and i didn't like the drivers none of witch applys probably in this day and age, i have no idea whats going on of late when it comes to the software side of things when it comes to ATI vs nvidia so don't know what to say.


My self looking at both cards id probably go back in to research mode and see whats up with the tweak/bios mods/drivers topic when it comes to both cards but with what iv read so far when it comes to the RX480 vs geforce 1060 its kind of hard not to say the RX480 from a hardware level, at the same time im a geforce fan boy so you know.
