They are both very similar performance wise and they're both very outdated.
If you are planning on playing well optimized games you could be alright for a little while.   But don't expect great performance.

For very demanding games like Warzone for example, the FPS drops to 60 in populated areas for the 1070 which is pretty poor and will not give you a good experience.

Next gen consoles will probably perform better and cost less than both of these.

If you really want a good gaming PC that will last for a few years look into nvidia's new 3000 series.  It's the biggest jump in a decade for graphics cards. 
Almost everyone will be running one of these soon enough. They beat the older generation by a lot in performance and cost about the same price.
