Should I "trade" my 1660 Super for a new RX6600?

Hey guys, so the market where I live is pretty fucked up now, so the best/cheapest way to finally upgrade from my old Pavilion 15 laptop was to buy a prebuilt PC. And so I've done! I've bought the Lenovo Ideacentre 14AMR05 with Ryzen 5 3600 and 1660 super and it is honestly really good aside from shitty motherboard and some temp issues, which I will fix soon. However, recently I noticed some new RX6600 on the market selling for relatively cheap. And 1660 Super usually sells at a higher price. That means that I can sell my 1660 Super and buy a new XFX RX6600 and maybe even make a profit.

Now, my question is, should I do it? I know that RX6600 is perfoming better and is compared to RTX3060 but I'm still kinda unsure if this is a good decision.

It would be a really good deal, if the market is stable enough, and you're really sure you can get a RX6600 when you have sold the 1660.

Without a doubt. The RX6600 outperforms the 1660 Super. I'd say go for it while you can.

You can sell your Super, and use that money to buy a RX6600 and maybe even have money left over? Sounds like a no brainer to me. That said, are you 100% positive that by the time you sell your Super you will be able to pick up the 6600?

Yeah, I'll carefully time it so I'm not left without a GPU (hopefully), once I've sold mine : D.

Just had some doubts in the back of my head and thought it would be better to hear others' opinions on this, Thanks, guys!
