Default RX470 vs RX480 vs GTX1060 madVR

Hi, i'm looking to buy one of this cards, currently i will be using it on a 1080p display, i want to max out or be pretty close to the max settings on this and on my future 4K monitor.

What is the most powerful of the bunch, and what is the things i should look for, im noob with this stuff but i like to get the best IQ possible from my movies.


Does RX480 worth around 60-70euros + vs the RX470? what about the 3/6GB 1080?

Don't look at the 3GB 1060 , you really need 6GB. None of those will max 4k gaming but all should max 1080p. If bought a 1060 I would avoid evga at the moment due to cooling issues with their 10xx series of cards. It is th best value card price to performance but overallof thse3 I would say the 480 may beat tech better overall.

My bad I was thinking MadVR was a virtual reality sim (VR) but it appears it is just a video codec render program. Gaming is one of the most intensive taxing tasks for a gpu - much more intensive than showing video. Apparently anything GTX 960 or above does great with a lot of people giving preference to AMD cards for that particular application. If yo can swing a RX480 I would do so as it may last you longer and be more future proof against any new decoding/render applications that may arise.

Try reading this it may help
