so my current PC is:

CPU: Ryzen 2600x
RAM: 24gb corsair vengeance (2x8) (2x4) 3000mhz
MB: Gigabyte B450 DSH3
GPU: https://www.msi.com/Graphics-card/GeForce-GTX-1060-AERO-ITX-6G-OC.html (msi aero itx 1060 6gb)
PSU: an old aero cool 600w 80+ bronze

I basically just need to know if theres going to be any bottlenecks if i replace the current 1060.

and whether or not i need to get a new PSU to power the 3070 since i dont have the right power cable for it,
can i get an adapter? if so, which one?
what new power supply can i buy that powers the 3070?

Thanks.

You will notice a big performance boost. The 2600x likek the 2700x is no slouch. I do know the 2700x and 9900k came out around same time and they both are similar in performance. So your not to far behind. No need to upgrade your components. If I had my old 4930k I would use that with a 4080Ti for crying out loud ya know. The 2600x is way above the 4930k. Also I played on 4930k with my graphics cards and its stellar. So ya no reason to upgrade anything except PSU if it is a crummy one. If your PSU is 550w quality or 650w and above not so much quality then you should be ok. 🤷‍♂️💯🎗🙏☮
