  3. Unless you take the RX570, the only other reason to get the 1050Ti is it's lower TDP, 75W compared to the 7950's 200W.

  4. Here's the thing about the 1060: http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-RX-570-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1060-3GB/3924vs3646
    The RX 570 is about $15 cheaper on the cheapest option and has 1 more GB of VRAM.

  5. Their performance is pretty much identical, and while that extra 1GB of VRAM might be useful in a few years time, if @OP is playing games like WoW which are heavily optimized for Nvidia and perform like crap on AMD, it is a heavy consideration to make.

  6. Yeah, you're right about that. Some companies optimize better for Nvidia, instead of both..

  7. Whatever you do, DON'T use GPU boss as a reference, they're extremely inaccurate and false 80% of the time.
    The userbenchmark comparison is more accurate.
