Assuming your budget goes that high I'll second the recommendation for a $230ish (US prices) 1660 super (roughly the same price as a standard 1660 but ~10% faster), or 1660 Ti ($280 but only 10% faster than 1660S).

The high priced 1060's are quasi-scammers massively marking stuff up because it's out of stock hoping to find a sucker who doesn't know any better. For the most part I'd recommend avoiding them at 1660S is ~35% faster than a 1060-6gb; and they generally start at about the same price.

The 1060-3gb is maybe an option if you can find a cheaper one around $180, but with only 3gb of ram is going to limit your ability to actually use the rest of the cards performance; and low ram cards tend to age much more poorly with time.

The 1050 and 1050Ti can both be found around $150, performance on both is about the same but the TI's got 4gb instead of 3; and is the one I'd recommend on a budget.

The 460 was a 150W card, which is more than any of the above so you shouldn't need to worry about if your PSU can run them.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
