The 480 is a much better card. Actually, the 1060 6 GB is even better, if you want to stretch your budget a bit more.
The RX 480 4GB is a better card. However I would look at the GTX 1060 if you can.
RX 480 vs GTX 1060. LINK: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/1749?vs=1771
I don't know what your saying, I spent time and look at all other Graphs from other websites and Anandtech does a great job and it is easy to look up comparisons also they compare 9 games that are inline with techpowerup 7% average lead with the GTX 1060 VS RX 480 . https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/RX_480_Gaming_X/9.htmlThose anandtech results don't have many games, and seem out of line with techpowerup and other sites.
Really depends on cost of the cards where they live. Honestly I wouldn't even class the 1060 as better than the 480 they are very close give or take a few fps.
Especially in the latest games like Titanfall 2 and COD Infinity Warfare.....and they're DX11.

I guess I'm just saying the cards are much of muchness
I find looking at the anandtech results the 1060 kicks the RX 480's butt!
For example GTA 5
I just got the impression from both your posts that the 1060 was the one to go for out of the two, which is indeed accurate if prices are similar. Anandtech gives a larger impression than 7% gains that's for sure.
The problem I find when looking at comparisons is every website seem to have different results. maybe it's to do with driver versions and reference cards being tested I'm not sure. Anyway not having a go at your post just some observations
If you look at the individual testing on Anandtech and techpowerup they both look like there more than 7% with the GTX 1060 you have to look at the numbers. Most of the games tested the GTX 1060 does 10% better in both sites, then they average in were the GTX 1060 does worse.
I'm not trying to be hard on you however take a look at the Benchmarks on both sites and Compare and you will see they come out the same. I don't like bar Graphs, however I look at the numbers.
