I'm currently running an i7 4790 and a gtx 1050ti . I want to upgrade my gpu to an 1660 or 1070 . Corsair vs450 450w 80+ white is my current psu. Will I need a psu upgrade?

BTW forgot to add that the First link has an Expert and Basic mode. Expert means you know exactly what you have, while Basic is you know just the important stuff

Yes you will but not for the reason you think. The VS450 is a low end PSU, and if you go 1070 its just not up to the task. You want a good quality 550W PSU for that.

Seasonic Focus 550, EVGA 550G3, or if your budget is limited the Corsair CX550M

Your current CORSAIR PSU model is average. It's not bad unit, but also not the very best in terms of quality/efficiency. But to be on a safer side, upgrade to some other high quality PSU. Never skimp on the PSU, since this is the MOST important component of any Gaming PC.

Look for these similar models. But you need to decide how much Wattage you would be requiring. I would start with a 550/600 Watts quality unit.
