So Ya'll know i have my build "Bad Timing", which surprisingly isn'thalf "bad." But, everyone upgrades, so these are what I'm looking to upgrade around Christmas and Black Friday. So, I've come up with these, but I'm still determining what I should go with, whether the RX480 or GTX1060. They're both good cards, just can't decide. Whichever will perform better with Sony Vegas will work too. Please leave which will benefit me more down below.

Get the 1060 3GB for 1080p. It's not enough for some titles in 1440p but if you're gaming 1440p with a 1060 then you're doing it wrong. Way too much PSU juice, although future proofing.

I lean toward AMD in the midrange these days, as Freesync monitors are much less expensive than G-Sync. But if you're not planning on a new monitor, maybe go Nvidia. Slightly faster, at least until DX12/Vulkan really take off. If that happens.
