Any thought about rx470 or rx480? I was planing to buy rx470 for 16500rs. Will it be a better choice when compared to GTX 1060 mini in terms of overall performance?

Please share your opinion.
rx470 4GB [₹16,499] vs GTX 1060 mini 6GB [₹21,799] ?
rx480 8GB [₹22,999] vs GTX 1060 mini 6GB [₹21,799] ?

GTX 1060 performs better than RX480 except those using vulkan api.

No point in getting RX470 if you already have the budget for 1060/RX480.
Coming to DX11/DX12 and current genre, 1060 performs much better than RX470 and a bit better than RX480.

Now if you are going to play games that will use Vulkan API then RX480 should be your choice. However, at present there are barely 2-3 games that benefit RX480 from it.
RX480 allows crossfire, while nVidia 1060 doesn't allow SLI.

^^ RX 480 performs better than 1060 in DX12 too. And I guess in the next year or so we will see a lotta dx12 based games.

Nope. It's not the case.
For instance in Forza Apex, RoTR - GTX1060 performs better. All games based on DX12 isn't a guaranteed performance gain for AMD. Though due to Async Computer design they have better future.
I am not 100% sure if nVidia will release any decent driver for Vulkan API. Also Pascal doesn't support Async Compute at Hardware level as far as I read, it's mostly implemented in a different manner as compared to AMD and is a software based implementation rather. Hopefully, after Volta they will have a proper HW based Async Compute Engine.

[MENTION=98840]ssb1551[/MENTION] can you share your experience on the heat Zotac GTX 1060 6GB emits.

Guys what if my budget is only 17k, in that case is RX470 worth to buy?

I hope thats a typo though I cant figure out what you meant to type instead of "heat" :D. If not then I gotta take it literally and NO it doesn't heat up much at all. As of now I have played BF4, Diablo III (my all time favourite amongst RPGs which is my favourite genre too - used to play Diablo II LOD 7-8 hours a day hehe) and your usual racing, FPS games. Dont like GTA series so didnt try GTA V. Oh and Witcher 3 was awesome on this card. So far no complaints. Also it fit easily on my ASRock B150M Pro4S in Cooler Master K380. Although I never played for more than 3-4 hours as of now. I wanna try that some day - play continuously for 7-8 hours.

^^ I can confidently say primeabgb is a good e-commerce seller too. I have ordered my i5 6500 and Sandisk SSD Plus 240GB from there. Packaging is good. If you pay in advance as in prepaid then the delivery is superb too. Got my processor in 2 days. But CoD is a different story.

I bought my 1060 from them and I can confirm that it's safe to buy from them.

Guys i purchased Zotac GTX 1060 6GB mini for 20800 rs locally.

I played GTA 5 for 2 hours and temperature of the card went upto 75 degree °C. I added three exhaust fans. One fan is right below the graphics card blowing air on it. Other one is on the side blowing air. One fan as exhaust. But still temperature doesn't come down. I am playing gta 5 at ultra setting. When ideal, temp is 37 °C.

Is this temperature normal? Are you guys getting the same temperature when playing games at high setting? Can you guys share your experience regarding this.

Did you change the GPU Fan Curve ? The stock fan curve doesn't push the fan to spin at 100% unless it reaches 85c.
Apparently, for a CPU that might be a high temperature but for GPUs that's very common. GPUs tend to run a lot hotter than CPUs.
If I were you, I wouldn't worry about temps unless it stays at 80c and above for a very long duration.

On a side note : I have GTX1060 with Dual Fans. The things idles at 38-39c and hits 67-68c under very heavy load, despite the fact that fan hits 100% at 60c and there is lots of air inside the cabinet.
If I keep default fan curve then it'll hit 70's quite often.
