Hi Guys,

My GPU 7950.... yes radeon powercolor 7950 started failing me after 9 years. hence the vertical red lines across the screen I have two monitors tested hdmi and vga cables and get the same red lines however when plugged into my MB works fine. Not going to try and save the card.

Im still running a I5 ivy bridge 16 gigs ddr3 ram served me well.

I was looking at a 3060t.i to my next card but I believe my pc would to weak and there would be a bottleneck.

Would this be ok for my build i am on budget as well im a casual gamer apex legends , football manager and prob play some dbz. Use the pc for work as well.

possible want to get me new 3rd monitor as well that i can play games 144mhz. ( 27inch at least looking at the
Dell 27-Inch FHD 144Hz Curved Gaming Monitor S2721HGF as i already have 2 monitors 27inch dells)

AMD RYZEN 5 3600
X470 Gaming Plus MAX
16GB DDR4 Upgrade Kit
GPU thinking either 3060t.i or radeon 6600 or radeon 6700

what are your thoughts input would be really great from the gaming community haven't posted in 8 years.

Going with an X470 doesn't make sense any more. I'd say use a B550 or X570 motherboard. For the CPU right now the 5600X is cheaper than a 3600 and is much faster for gaming than the 3600.

Here is an idea for a full upgrade minus the CPU as those are hard to come by at a normal price right now.

Much appreciated will look look into a B550 or x570 rather this make sense along with the 5600x.
