So i was thinking of upgrading from my gtx 1070 to something like a 2060 super or possibly a 3060/3060TI if possible (I know current stock on them isn't easily available atm) so i was wondering if my pcie 16x slot was compatible with it.

It says PCI-Express and 16x but im not sure which gen it is, and if ill have to upgrade my cpu and motherboard as well, at that point i'd be better off buying a whole new pc.

Alright, do you think my cpu (Core i7-2600k) would bottleneck something like a 2060 Super?
And do you think upgrading the system entirely would be better then just upgrading the graphics?

Cpu: Core i7 2600k
Gpu: Gtx 1070
Ram: 16gb 1666mhz DDR3
PSU:650W (I believe?)

I think the 2060 Super is a stretch for the 2600k.

Alright Fair enough, so probably an entire new system for when i next need to upgrade.
Thanks Sm!!
