Hi
Guys, i know you are so experienced and please help me to upgrade my G3-605. I am in a huge hunger to upgrade it so i don't need to play PUBG with lowest setting and around 45 fps.
here are the specs of my pc.



Questions is, Can i upgrade my graphic card with Gtx 1050ti or Gtx 1060? I guess i will use this computer for another 2 or 3 years, so should i pick a cheaper one which is Gtx 1050ti ? I've heard gtx 1050ti has the feature of overclocking so, i wonder if i got it installed, do i have to find a compatible motherboard for overclocking it ? Or,if i understand right, will gtx1050ti overclocking it self regardless what kind of motherboard i am using?

Question 2 if i may ?
I find out, my motherboard have 4 ram slots and two of them are utilized by 2 of 4 gigabyte ddr3 ram stick and 2 are empty. I am aiming to upgrade the ram larger reaching 16 g so it may boost my gaming experience bit. Do i need to change the originally exist 2 by 4 g ddr3 ram into 2 by 8 g ddr3 ram, so which means i have to throw away the original sticks so i can keep the so called "duel channel" function? Or maybe i can just economically buy two 4 g ddr3 ram and add them into the rest two slots so as a result i will have 16 g total cpu memory?

Hoping for getting your responds soon and thanks a lot !!!!!!

Hi
I would like firstly thank you for your answer, i don't remember from which manufacture my PSi is, but i do know it is 500w and 80 gold labeled.
Do you mean the GTX1060 is compatible with my motherboard ? I've searched on the youtube and saw few post said my cpu which is i54440 is enough for the gtx1060 and no bottleneck will come, is that ture ? Changing a cpu will be not only a huge task but also a bunch of moeny for me right now.
 
The power supply won't be any problem. It's an FSP500-50AAGA with a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 40 Amps and has one 75-Watt 6-pin and one 150-Watt (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

Will it lead to a rebuying windows8? That would be so annoying surely.

Thanks for your advice and that sound really good but i am trying to save some budget so maybe i don't need to change my cpu and it would really affect too much to my gaming performance ?

Nice, finally i got the answer about the rams.
You mentioned windows 10 is better, which means the windows 8licence on my G3-605 can't be used anymore after changing the rams , graphic card and adding a sata3 ssd ? I've being searching on the internet and someone just say it would not need to reinstall windows unless you change the motherboard. ??? I really hope i don't need to buy another copy for the same computer after upgrading.
