I have had a GeForce gtx 1060 6gb for quite a while now, and just upgraded from a Ryzen 5 2400g to a risen 7 2700x. I am planning on using this CPU for a good while longer because it still shreds today, but my 1060 doesn't feed my CPU enough. There are some rx 6600 going at my local micro center for around $430, and if I sell my old 1060 for a little less than the average price on eBay, I can get the 6600 for pretty cheap. I was planning on getting a 3060 ti, but a 6600 is about the same performance as a 3060, which I would be fine with for a while as it is a big upgrade from my current gpu, and I would probably end up upgrading it in about a year, so it would be something to hold me over until I can get a better gpu at msrp. I don't like buying things with the intention of upgrading, but my 1060 is really not giving me great performance. Also, what confuses me is that in all the games the 6600 performs almost as well and sometimes better than the 3060, but userbenchmark shows that the 3060 is like 30% better, so I would think that userbenchmark tests more on things like productivity where the 3060 clearly outshines. So should I spend the money and go through the whole process and get better performance or should I just deal with it until I can get a 3060 ti or 3070 in a little while?
