Hi there,

I am looking to replace a 1030 in my existing system, specs below. Presently I have the option of getting either a [Minimum post requirement for links] or [Minimum post requirement for links]
for the same price.

I originally intended to get the 6600 XT, as the local price for 3060s was about 25% more. However, since I can now get them for the same price, I am reconsidering.

The use case is general/low end gaming, mostly 1080p. I don't upgrade often, and will happily scale down settings, so I am looking for longevity and long term value ahead of outright performance.

My understanding is that in current conditions the 6600 XT gives better performance, but that the 3060 may be better futureproofed on account of more VRAM and newer tech.

Build spec:
ASUS TUF GAMING B560-PLUS WIFI Intel ATX Motherboard
Intel 11th Gen Core i5 11400F
KLEVV CRAS XR RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) 3600MHz DDR
KLEVV CRAS C720 512GB M.2 PCIe 3x4 NVMe
DELL S2721HGF 27" Full HD (1920 x 1080) 144hz Gaming Monitor

I may be bias but I 100% would advise you to get 3060 over the 6600 XT. The 3060 is better longterm.
