Since my R9 290 died; I am in need of a gpu. I will be playing at 1080p. 1070 is a overkill for 1080p but its more futureproof. I want to know which will give a smoother gameplay ? A GTX 1070 with my current 1080p 60hz monitor or a RX 580 with a new 1080p 60hz freesync monitor since there are many cheap ones in the market. thanks.

If you are planning to stick with 1080p, get the 580. If you are going to upgrade your monitor in the future, get the 1070

IMO there is no point changing working 1080p 60Hz monitor into another one, even if getting Freesync.

 

My option would be getting cheaper card (like RX570) and later upgrade to better card and 1440p (or better) monitor.

 

I see no reason getting GTX 1070 for FullHD@60Hz, it's just too overkill and GTX 1070 has very poor DirectX 12 feature support so it's not even future proof.

Why not get the 1060? It's cheaper than the 1070 and not as power hungry as the 570.
Sure the 570 is more future proof but at the cost of having a power hungry gpu.
The fact that nvidia is still the better gpu maker is a bit sad as amd was able to do great things with ryzen but even Vega may be a dud in gaming compared to a 1080

I don't know, as long as the PSU has enough wattage and is of good quality (such as a Corsair CXM 450 which is only $50) it shouldn't make a difference in terms of power consumption.

I just know that the RX 500 series is more power hungry than the RX400 series and with only a small performance gain.

If you can get a RX480 I say do that as while it wont have as many gains it would fill in the gap of a GPU without the power hog nature of the new model.

Both the RX480 and the 1060 are still viable for 1080p and you can still play AAA games with them.

I know I am happy with my 1060 as sure yes I am mostly stuck at 1080p its still my limit on my monitor and I wont go 1440p until prices drop.

Gotta go with whats good for the wallet you know.

thank yo for the answer. i have a coler master 700w bronze psu. it can handle 580. i know how power hungry these card can be. i used to own a r9 290 and my electricity bill and temperature was..... it's 580 is somehow better than 1060 which is almost 1 year old; 580 is new and amd supposedly have better dx12 support.

RX580 is just RX480 with different name. When it comes to RX580 vs GTX1060, RX580 wins easily as it has much better DX12 support and on that price range Freesync is very useful but G-sync is totally useless. There are no cheap G-sync monitors around so it makes no sense buying GTX1060 that is too slow for ultra expensive G-sync monitor. That means there is no practical use for G-Sync with GTX1060.

So RX580 is better long term choice and Freesync is nice bonus. Notice also that Nvidia cards tend to have higher CPU power consumption than AMD cards.

Nvidia does more things "software" (meaning "off GPU" that means using CPU) than AMD.

I have RX480s and GTX1070s among my different builds. Yes the GTX1070 is a bit overkill and more expensive but it's cheaper, quieter and cooler to run!  Since you asked about the RX580 I'd say there isn't much point over the 480. 

 

However, one thing that many have forgot to point out is that it's now near impossible to get an RX480/470s right now so depends how desperate you are to get it right now or if you're willing to buy second hand.

I'd go with the 1070, because as the games get more demanding, the 1070 will be more future proof.
