well the new graphics cards are out
the NVidia 1080 is the top of the heap but also is priced at the top of the pile and will outperform 2x980ti and the titan x which was 1,000,  cost is around  $700
the 1070 is a more budget priced card and is around 400 but not the performance of the 1080, still a good card.
now they have released the 1060 and it is around 250 to 300.
the amd 480x/8gb is under 250 and in testing against the NVidia 980 and the NVidia 1060 . the 480x out performed them both at a lower price.

all of the reviews are out and the testing results are at hardocp.com then click on gpu.
you can also see the reviews and testing on cpus, power supplies, ram.

at hardocp they are tested on multiple games at maximum setting, real people playing real games and now just bench marks.

Excuse me?

The 480 is better than the 1060?

The 1080 is better than two 980 ti's?

The 1070 is a $450 card. not really budget...

The 1060 benchmarks I've seen from trusted sites had the 1060 performing at a higher FPS on almost every game at every Res compared to the 480. The 1060 is also appearing to Overclock much better which is just going to widen the gap. The 1060 actually performs at a 980 level and the 480 is closer to a 970.

HardOCP review kinda sucks BTW. They use Doom as a big part of the review when that was created heavily for AMD cards. Like other reviews say the results are very similar in most dx12 games including ashes of singularity which is one of the biggest AMD games which is impressive for the GTX 1060 to do.

Other reviews I've seen had the 1060 slightly ahead of the 480 in almost every dx11 game. The biggest difference is when both cards are overclocked. This is the first time one of the cards starts to step ahead of the other IMO with the 1060 definitely overclocking a bit better.

What I definitely like about Pascal is the superior TDP and temperatures.

Even though I have a gtx 1070 I hope AMD destroys Nvidia with Vega and brings it to them. I keep waiting for AMD to do something big and level the playing field but it never happens sadly and Nvidia is able to hold back every generation because of it. Intel is able to do the same thing with their CPU's.

You can get a 6gb aftermarket gtx 1060 for under $300(I believe the Zotac amp is $279) and people will pay the few extra dollars to get Nvidia over AMD. The crazy thing is that AMD just let Nvidia have the top tier so it was expected that they would do something big in the budget market but Nvidia is right there with them without a care in the world.

When aftermarket cards are more readily available, people figure out the overclock, and drivers improve I won't be surprised when the 1060 is beating the 480 by 10%. Nvidia drivers are always far better and Nvidia is absolutely superior in TDP, Temps, and overclocks every single generation. Both AMD and Nvidia have great custom cards so I think thats a tie. EVGA for Nvidia and Sapphire for AMD.

remembing that the 480s on the market come with 4gb vram and 8gb at a slightly higher cost.
the 970 and 980 do not
I have NVidia card in my laptop and look forward to building a new budget computer with amd parts.
I build for other people but am very budget oriented as long as it gets the job done.
performance, I don't need to have the top of the line just one that will play all of my games. my laptop is starting to struggle with the new ones.

Amd rx 480 is perfectly fine for 1080p 60hz and even 144hz on quite a few games. I was honestly fairly disappointed with my last amd card but that was more Asus fault than amd. Amd tends to run far hotter, use more wattage, and have drivers that arent quite as good from my experience.

Personally I think spending the $100 or so more and getting a gtx 1070 is the best option since a few have now dropped under $400.. That gives you the ability to play any game at 1080p/144hz, 1440p, and even 4k at a high enough fps. It's far more future proof for not that much more.

Some people still game on 1080p/60hz and for that any new gpu will be good enough in reality. I think most gamers are now moving on to higher resolutions though or at the very least higher hz.

Looking for a available 1070 option or extreme liquid cooling for a custom build come November.

I always say you shouldn't buy open loop cooling unless you build the system yourself. It takes experience with computers to maintain a open loop system and even more so when you're cooling the CPU and GPU.

It's also scarier considering they have to build it, fill up the loop, then ship it to you. Just too much that can go wrong in the shipping process. If it springs a leak you're entire system will be destroyed before you open it up.

It's possible they get it in though but none of us will know for sure.

okay just to be straight in the above paragraphs the amd conference at that time was comparing 2x480 against the higher priced 1080 lol, sorry.
i did go with the zotac gtx 1060x6gb 1056mhz/17-- turbo and overclocked it to 2100 core/4177 memory, i have put a rx470x4gb in a gaming rig for a friend, its all her budget would take and she is happy and i have a rx 480x8gb strix coming in for another build going out next week.
a lot of people crying about the 1080/1080ti and the titan x cards but they paid the price for the cards and they put out the performance as advertised and they are crying on the nvidia forums wanting free upgrade. lol. not going to happen
don't always go for the high dollar equipment, get what you can best afford for what you want it to do because the computer world is changing every 3 or 4 months. 
the latest and greatest is going to be the most expensive. 
sorry for rambling, one of those nights

That's what I did Redi. I was resigned to end up with a 1060, and Cyberpower ran the free 1070 deal, and I pounced. I got a great card and paid what I wanted for my system, which was less than $1400
