ASUS ROG STRIX GTX 1060 6gb OC vs EVGA GTX 1070 SC?

I'm having trouble choosing what to buy... The ASUS Strix 1060 OC has a Base clock of 1620MHz and a boost clock of 1847MHz while on the EVGA GTX 1070 SC has a base clock of 1594MHz and boost clock of 1784MHz.

Does Clock speed really matter?

Which is the Fastest?

Here is my Specs:
Asus B250F Gaming Pro : MOBO
Intel Core I5-7500 : CPU
Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB DDR4 2666MHz : RAM
GPU: Still waiting for the anwer.
Seagate 2TB : HDD

Please Help. It's my first time building a PC :/

    It's only really relevant when comparing 2 identical cards, the GTX 1070 is most definitely the faster card. Where as if you were comparing 2x GTX 1060 variants, the one with the higher clock speeds would most likely be the faster card. If you need help doing a PC build i suggest you put it together on here > https://pcpartpicker.com/list/ and we on Tom's can make some suggestions to make sure you get the best value for your money. Hope this helps :)

    You are comparing 2 different models of the same series. The best of the best OC in a 1060 might reach the performance of a 1070 but it's something not easily done. If you are playing at 1080p/60Hz, 1070 is overkill but any higher res or any higher Hz you are better with 1070.
    Have a look here:

    You can clearly see that 1080 Ti has just a bit higher clock that 1050 yet the higher number of Cuda Cores with exceptionally better memory makes the comparison like a Bugatti Veyron to a Toyota Prius. So, there are plenty of things to consider and not just raw numbers.

    Yeah. I think it is an Overkill for 1080p monitor. Thx for the answer!
