    Which graphic card should I get? GTX 1060 or GTX 1070?

    Hello guys! I have a PG279Q and I want to buy a new graphic card because mine isn't appropriate for this monitor (an old gtx 760, rip). The question is what should I get? A GTX 1060 or a GTX 1070?
    Main games I currently play: CS:Go, LoL, Overwatch and some single players.

    Hmm...I guess I'd go for the 1070 with that monitor....trying to max refresh rate...

    Just a bit more memory, memory bandwidth etc. 1060 a good card but 1070 obviously slightly better

    Definitely want a 1070 with a PG279Q. The 1070 is probably the best bang for your buck right now and has a lot of potential especially when overclocked.

    which ever you choose, just make sure your PSU can handle the load.

    With graphic cards you can never wrong with stronger model. With CPU you can save money on 4 cores,
    or cheaper version of 6 cores but with GPU performance improvements is biggest and always visible.
    Only upgrade from HDD to SSD is similar result. Because of that GTX1070 is my vote.
