@DopeyAlex,

I can not with good faith suggest any card without knowing the reason (game play).

@DopeyAlex,

Call of Duty Battlefield 5 requirements, as shown here.   Your GTX 1060 (3 GB) is minimum.  The site states a 6GB GTX 1060.  If you going to seek a better GPU (measure for card length) and  keep in mind a new PSU.

Right now the GPU world is in flux with the RTX 3000 series cards coming on the market.  This MSI RTX 2060 is a suitable, and 43% above the 1060,   but will the price drop when the 3070's arrive.
