try a superclocked 1060
it depends on what you want to play and at what FPS and your budget?
What are your requirements and budget. You may check this graphics card buying guide to make an informed decision
Do you have a link to the pc partpicker based off the rest of your parts not including the gpu. Since right now prices are kind of high.
Choose according to your budget and try to research games that take advantage on card you going to buy. If the game that you would play take advantage on Nvidia card more, choose Nvidia. However, if the game takes advantage on AMD more, choose AMD. :)
here is a link
Depending on the type of games you would be playing and the current hardware if you can pick gtx 1060 6GB or gtx 1080 ti. Spending more would save you money in the long run so go with gtx 1080 ti if you can afford this.
That depends on what you are doing. If it's just general work or viewing YouTube videos any GC with 3 or 4 MB memory will work fine. If you are into gaming do you want 75+ fps or 4k resolution? Then you're going to need a Nvidia 1070 with 8 GB memory minimum. There are lots of YouTube videos so I would watch them before jumping into a $$$$ card. One thing to note, GCs are very expensive due to cryptomining.
You need a good gpu like the Titan V in order to play any modern title at more than 720p 24fps

Ifk if you have something now but it really depends on your budget. A gtx 1060 3gb or a 1050ti are really good price performance budget cards so i would do thath.
dont get a midrange card like a gtx 1060 or 1070 because prices for those are ridiculous due to the mining craze. A gtx 1050 ti is a great card for playing at 1080p and you get rocket leauge with it on newegg for free
I recently purchesed an EVGA Suoerclocked GTX 1080 from newegg for ~$550. I was planning on getting a 1070, but those were all out of stock, and the 1080 wasn't too much more expensive. From my experience, I can recommend getting whatever NVIDIA is in your price range (~30% of your total build cost) and happens to be in stock at the moment. I wouldn't go AMD unless you are mining right now. The price of AMD cards has nearly doubled in the last few months, making NVIDIA cards a better value. I wish you luck finding the card you want in stock and for a decent price.
I agree I bought a RX 480 for around 200 on December and now they go for 300-400
100-200$= Radeon RX 460 200-300$=gtx 1060 300-400$=gtx 1070
400-500$=RX 480 500-600$=GTX 980 600-700$=GTX 1080
700-800$=Old titan x 800-1000$=New titan x

Thank's dude, apreciate it!
The 1080ti is better than the old titan x
Go AMD Rx480 but choose a manufacturer with custom fans and 8pin power.

The 4gb cost $250ish and can be flashed to 8gb.

I'm surprised people here arbitrarily tell you not to go AMD without explaining why. The 1000 series nvidia is a good lineup but 1060 is severely limited at 3gb. 1070 is good but overkill at single monitor 1080p gaming and are also twice the price of the 480.

Currently, you can't get an AMD card due to the cryptocurrency craze. If you can find an RX 480/580, it's going for $400, and if you're gaming, the GTX 1070 is a much better value at around $400. If the AMD card prices drop back down, AMD cards will once again be a good value for gaming. Mining cryptocurrency, however, should be done with an AMD card.
You can buy a 1060 with 6gbs of vram and the reason not to buy them is because of how expensive they are due to the mining craze
