Upgrading from a Nvidia Geforce Gigabyte Windforce 960 4gb...

So I'm looking to upgrade my video card, (Geforce Gigabyte Windforce 960 4GB). I have an I5-6600 CPU no K, and I am using an H170 Gaming 3 mobo Gigabyte.

I'm not looking at upgrading my cpu anytime soon. I play all my games at 1080p 1920x1080 resolution, have a Acer ED273 Monitor as well. My question is, would there be much improvement from going to my said card to say a 1060 6gb, 1070, 1660? If so what am I going to get the most longevity with?

Either a lower tier GTX 1660TI or a RTX 2060. If you like used products you could find a GTX 1070 for around 200-240 and a GTX 1070 TI around 250-300. I wouldnt buy a GTX 1060 6gb anymore but the RX 580 8gb are priced really nicely right now.

Only 1080p 60 hz?

RX 580 and gtx 1060 should be a good choice for that (thou the rx 580 is cheaper for nearly the same performance).

Well, considering a gtx 1070 or gtx 1660 ti will be overkill at 1080p for 60-75hz, a RX 580 or GTX 1060 will still fit the bill.

Going with a 1660 TI, later on I could upgrade my monitor yes?

a 2060 would be your best bet honestly, it's new and is the same retail price as a GTX 970, but performs close to a GTX 1080. you will see massive improvements from a 960 to a new card.
