How much difference is there between 1050TI and GTX1060 6GB?

So, I'm currently planing a PC and I am trying to lower the cost by as much as possible without impacting the performance too much. Getting a 1050TI instead of 1060 would save me about $150.

What do you think is a better option if I'm looking for a gaming PC I plan on using for 5+ years? Are there any specific 1050TI or GTX 1060 cards you would recommenced?

Just few extra bits of information that might be helpful. I'm planing to stick with 1080p at least until 4k prices drop significantly, I don't mind playing on lower graphics if needed, and I'm not interested in doing any overclocking atm.

Here is the current build:

    This will offer much more performance than the GTX 1050 Ti and only slightly lower than the GTX 1060 6GB. And yes the gap between the 1050 Ti and 1060 6GB is reasonably large. Hope this helps :)
