A year ago you bought a PC with a five year old PSU?!!? YIKES!

Well.. it's worked so far, so it should be fine for a either of those cards as they don't need that much power.
Yeah man everything on pc did seems good except that psu. Maybe i should wait for upgrade and buy psu and high end card together like 1080ti or 2070. Or just buy now 1070ti - 1160 ti - 2060 without changing psu. Which will be fine i gues.

The question is also the quality of the power supply. Right now, you have a fairly low-quality PSU protecting what is essentially a used 1060. A new 2060 is a lot more valuable than a used 1060.
But can i trust that psu to protect upcomming gpu like 1070ti- 1660ti - 2060. Otherwise im going to upgrade psu and also option to buy better card like 1080ti - 2070.
