so i know that my gpu is really bad , i want to buy a gtx 1660 ti but the thing is idk if it will work.
do i have to upgrade any other thing too ? idk but i heard something about bottleneck and i dont even know what it means, is it good or bad ?
is my ram and motherboard ok ? i might have to sell the monitor too , its too big and i dont really need this resolution, i also think it makes it harder for the gpu to render something this big
thanks.

So what exactly do you mean by "is it good" here? Is it as fast in games as new systems? Is it good like people would want to take pictures of it because it's the most amazing thing they have seen? Does it work? Then it's good. Does it do what you want it to do? Then it's good.

CPU is not very good comparing to modern ones for speed of efficiency with how much power is uses, but it's not what I would call "slow". Would the system run a 1660 Ti? It should and it should be quite a bit faster than your 6570 even with your CPU.

Well sir, i want to get 140 fps on popular games at custom settings like shadow and effects and most other stuff at low/off and then something like textures on high
Ive seen some benchmakrs and 1660 ti gives like 60 fps on ultra settings on some games 1080p and thats amazing
Really cool to have the 144fps on competetive games and also have 60 fps for games that u just want to see the beautiful graphics

So you said a 1660ti will only be better just a little bit than the graphic that i have right now ?will that happen because of the cpu ?

And my budget isnt really high, i thought just a single 1660ti would do
But i can sell my ultra wide monitor, i dont reslly need something this expensive, I actually have another one too. Maybe i can sell one to buy a 144hz monitor and sell the other to buy pc parts ? My country doesnt work around dollars but if I calculate, i think i cab sell it around 500 dollars
And my whole budget with this 500 will be a total of 650 or something
Is a 2600x a good option? Or is it too much for this budget at this moment ?
