There will be a big difference, But if you can I would grab a RX 580 or 590, Or even a Vega 56 which just had a nice price drop

It really is a good deal and you're good for 60 fps at 1080p resolution. You may need to turn down a few settings in a few games (well, if you don't have a freesync monitor), but in the long run it doesn't really matter. You can just get another $200 GPU in 2 or 3 years.

@nikeswoosh: Ya i wouldn't bother selling your old PC either. You'd get basically nothing worth while from the time wasted to sell it.

Its actually useful to have at least 1 other PC laying around to test out PC parts if your main one is behaving oddly.
