So I currently have a GTX 1050 TI GPU, and ive just ordered a RTX 2060,. Now my current PC was built by myself. So i know how to take out and put in components, But just to be sure i was wondering if once my new GPU does come, do i just pull out the 1050 TI and then just clip in the 2060? As with the 1050ti there were no wires, it was simply clip in place and tahdah! Or are there wires with it? do i need to install any other Nvidia drivers? Thanks alot :)

And what is your PSU?

When you install a new card you uninstall the drivers before you install the new card. When you boot with the new card it will be using the default display drivers and the only thing you have to do is download the new drivers for that card and install that and you finish that with a reboot.

They don't show pictures of the side or back of the card. What power supply are you using? The new card will almost certainly require power connectors and you want to be sure your power supply is up to the job so that your system doesn't go boom.

I wouldn't use any 450W PSU for a 2060, whatever you play, it makes no difference.
See im thinkin of now buying this PSU https://www.littlewoods.com/corsair-builder-series-cx550m-modular-power-supply-uk-version/1600269012.prd?_requestid=189688&Ntt=power supply unit But i also am questioning it, as a few of my friends who study computer science have said that my current PSU would do fine, but then you say it would not at all. If so i do not mind upgrading i just want to make sure that i HAVE to.

I would buy that one, but i only really buy stuff from this website Littwoods.com as i do not have to pay everything right away. And the highest PSU is 550W
