Hello guys, I build my PC last year with the following configuration

PC Part picker

I need to upgrade GPU which has at least 8GB VRAM. I don’t intend to spend lot of money, so I was thinking to get used GTX 1070 from eBay.

But is my system configuration ok for GTX 1070

Note:
  • I am not into too much gaming, I need this upgrade for Deep Learning research
  • I am also upgrading PSU to Corsiar TX650m

Yes, it is OK to get the gtx1070, here is the bottlenecking chart: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1k6heVCRwhlR9aAHxY5TVrDlu_rPK-X5oaafIPNXuAMM/edit#gid=0

And after you buy the new GPU, you should do this before install the new GPU.
  1. Use the DDU with old GPU to uninstall the old GPU driver, shut down the PC. DDU https://www.guru3d.com/files_details/display_driver_uninstaller_download.html
  2. Switch the new GPU, install the new GPU driver.
Also, when you buy the gtx1070, make sure don't buy the GPU that used for Bitcoin mining.

Because we don't know what budget you have, other GPU like RX vega 56 (8GB), or gtx1660ti ( 6GB) has the similar performances to the gtx1070. If you can find the new gtx1660ti or rx vega 56, recommend to buy the new GPU instead the used gtx1070 from ebay.
