Hello guys,
My pc build is (5year old build)
Fx 8320
Ddr3 16 gb ram
R9 290 sapphire
Seasonics 750 watts psu
Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P ATX AM3+ Motherboard


Actually my gpu r9 290 has three fans and one fan stopped working

So iam thinking of replacing it
Actually i dont have money to build a new pc.

So can i use gtx 1660 super with my current build without any bottlenecks?

Or do you think i should upgrade cpu mobo and gpu and ram

Thanks for your support

vs

EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER SC $230

Adding the 1660 super would give you higher Max FPS but would do nothing for the lows and spikes, that is on your CPU.

A 2600 would add 20+fps to the Low with much less spiking and a 3600 would add close to 30+ FPS for something like $77 more. You could coast by a few months and grab a GPU from there.

Selling the FX chip/MB and RAM would give you a return of around $100
