What to do?

Hey, new to the forum and PC gaming in general, last built a pc was like 5 years ago. I just built one this past week. But one problem.. The one thing im missing, the gpu. I know its the most important part in pc gaming but its also the most expensive in a build. My budget is very low since i kind of went nuts on the other components of the build.*i5 3570k cpu, msi z77a mobo, 650w psu, corsair h60 liquid cooling, 16gb ddr3 ram, 1 tb hdd, all in a neo z9 white case. I gave a low budget now and ive been looking through an app called "Offer Up" where i seen used gpu's on there go for very cheap for ex. a GTX 970 FTW going for $145 USD and a GTX 1060 Windforce for $185 USD. My question is should I go for a too good to be true deal? note i can go see them in person or buy brand new ?? and for my specific build a 970 4gb or 1060 6gb? I wanna play games in 1080, not anything ridiculous or anything.

Thanks in advance..

  1. GTX 970 for $145 is pretty standard tbh, you can find one for $120 if you really look. I'd still get a new RX 480 instead though if you can manage the extra $30-40, you'll get Doom with it too

    Cool. Ive been researching and supposedly GTX is a better option like maybe a GTX 1060 is better than the RX 480. I know the 480 has 8 gb vrama and 1060 has 6gb. But i dont know.. thanks tho ill forsure check out an rx 480.

  3. I meant the RX 480 4GB, you don't need 8GB of VRAM and the RX 480 is only 0-5% slower in most games than the 1060 6GB.
