Hello,

A great friend of mine would lend me his GEFORCE RTX 2070 AERO 8G to play Cyberpunk properly.

My questions are: Is my PSU enough for his card? Is easy to just change the GPU and play? Will I see an improvment or my current gear will cause a bottleneck? (CPU etc)

Thank you very much for your help!

Attached my gear:

CPU: Ryzen 2600x six core 3,6 ghz
Motherboard: Gigabyte b450 AORUS M
Ram: 16gb DDR4 channel : dual
SSD/HDD: KingSTON SA1000M8240G (OS) + 1 hybrid, and 1 ssd
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 1070 GTX INNO3D
PSU: Thermaltake Smart SE 730W
Chassis: ---
OS: Windows 10 Pro 64 Vers. 1909

The CPU is just fine. The RAM depends on the speed, which you did not mention.

The PSU is very unsuited for a build with any GPU that requires supplementary power, a cheap group-regulated PSU of ancient design. I wouldn't have this GPU on at all with this PSU. Thermaltake has a few decent PSUs in their portfolio (generally the Toughpower series) and this is not one of them. The Smart series is anything but.

Thanks to both of you for the answers.

Thank you! So in your opinion I should not risk to install it with this PSU? I risk to burn it? If I really have to buy a new PSU maybe I could buy a PSU that would last a long time, even for when I'll get a 3080... What's your opinion?

The Ram is 2400 MHz

THANK YOU again
