Question Help for upgrading

Wouldn't go a 1070 at that price.

Rtx 2060 is equivalent to a 1070Ti for less money.

Rest of your system looks good. Perhaps with money saved (if you went 2060 instead) look to upgrading ram to 16GB.

Mixing ram can be dodgy so if you consider it, get a new kit of 2x 8GB. Doesn't need to be fastest ram, around 2400MHz. The extra capacity would be wonders, 16GB is pretty much a recommendation with games nowadays.

Thank you for recommending that rtx 2060 since i am looking for black and white. Yes i will not buy 1070 for that price but is it fine for my build? Does it bottle neck? I am planning 4x4 for the ram or 2x4 and 2x8
 
Oh that was lucky about the colour :)

Your motherboard is fully compatible and your cpu is more than good enough.

Regarding ram. I would go 2x8GB. Mixing ram is 50/50 chance they'll work together even if specs are the same. Ie voltage, CL timings, size and brand as manufacturing materials can change over time and motherboards can be sensitive to this. Sometimes mixing ram can work, probably more often than not. In saying that, if you went 2x 8GB now youd have vacant slots available if you went another set of 2x 8GB in future.
