Hello so i want to buy a new graphics card for gaming and streaming on Twitch. Generally i play games like Valorant, Wow, and rpg games. My budget is on 300-350€.
I have these in mind (all of them in similar price 310-340€):
1) Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 12GB GDDR6 Gaming OC (rev. 2.0)
2)Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4060 8GB GDDR6 Windforce OC
3)Sapphire Radeon RX 6700 XT 12GB GDDR6 Pulse

To me the best one is the radeon one but people recommend NVIDIA card because of the better encoding on twitch if i understand good and also at least 12GB VRAM. Any opinions on these?
If you have any more recommendations feel free to say!!

PC specs:
MOBO: Gigabyte B550M DS3H
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600G
PSU: Be Quiet System Power 9 600W
RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16GB (2X8GB) DDR4 3600MHz
Box: Kolink Stronghold White
SSD: Samsung 970 Evo Plus M.2 1TB
 
If you just play games, the 6700xt is better than the 3060 - https://www.pcguide.com/gpu/is-the-6700-xt-better-than-3060/
If you played Ray tracing games it might be different. But 6700xt is better for normal raster work.

I wouldn't look at an 8gb card even if its a 40 model, they shot that GPU in the foot before releasing it. 8gb starting to be entry level now. Though it does depend on what games you want to play.

Bing AI says:

"The GIGABYTE Radeon RX 7700XT GAMING OC 12GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 Graphics Card is currently listed at $439.99 on Best Buy and Newegg. This seems to be the cheapest price for a 7700XT graphics card at the moment."

However, doesn't look like they've gone on Black Friday sale yet—so wait a few days and check again.
 
Its still not officially released yet, we just seen Powercolor mention 2 models... nothing else.
nothing mentioned this month about them.


or did you mean a 6700xt?

one more card would just make it harder to choose
