Hi.

So i have a stock G3-605, a prebuilt gaming station PC from Acer.

I bought it in spring 2015 when the GTX 970 still was a killer, but now its not.
Can i upgrade my GTX 970 to an aftermarket GTX 1070 or similar? The 970 in the computer is stock from nvidia, i believe its called founders edition or something.

Here is a benchmark:

Yep you should be able to switch it out without any problems. Some older or unique prebuilt PCs use custom parts but for the most part they are using the same parts anyone else would that built the PC at home, you just pay for them to build it for you. As someone else said you may need to upgrade your power supply depending on what your current PC has. Something like a good 650w should be enough to handle pretty much any mid end GPU you get. I would also suggest looking at a 1600 or 1660Ti instead of a 1070.

Are you by chance the same guy that I've posted with Userbenchmark that you can uprade to whatever card you want? (By those links I've meant that).
But officially you need to swap the PSU.
Not sure about that haha, what do you mean posted the link? But yeah will probs have to swap the psu
