GTX 1650 or 1660?

I have an Optiplex 9020 tower with i7 4770.

I want to replace my GPU. Now I have a gt 1030. I wonder what would be better for my PC. A GTX 1650 or a 1660? 

Thanks for your help in advance!

JO is spot on.   1060 and 1660 need a 6 or 8 pin PCIe connector respectively that Dell stock psu doesn’t have unless you upgrade to Dell XE2 MT oem psu or use a standard 24/4 ATX psu plus 24-8 pin adapter.

if then you are consider 1050 vs 1650, the 1650 is a relatively newer card and performs better.

The GTX 1650 supersedes NVIDIA's 1050, outperforming it by around 52%. It features a TU117 processor based on the newer Turing architecture.

The 9020 has a 290W PSU and Nvidia recommends a 400W PSU for the 1060 with a 6 pin connector. Now in your subject line you posted a 1650 or 1660 but in the post you stated a 1050 or 1060 so could you clarify which cards you are actually considering?

@JOcean​ Sorry for the typo. I meant to say 1650 and 1660

@redxps630​ So after all you're saying that I can't connect the 1060 and 1660, and recommending a 1650?

if you do not upgrade psu, then yes you can not run 1060 or 1660.

for example this Dell 1060 requires a 6 pin.

this Dell 1650 should be ok in 9020 tower with stock psu.
