APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: September 2017
BUDGET RANGE: 1500$
USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Autodesk/ rendering software, Gaming (Overwatch, CyberPunk 2077, Borderlands 3, Valorant)

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY:
Current GPU = Radeon RX 560 (about 5-6 years old)
Current Power Supply = 500 Watt - Standard 80 PLUS Bronze

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS:
Processor = AMD FX(tm) -4300 Quad-Core Processor (4 CPUs0, ~ 3.8 GHz
4GB RAM

I prefer Amazon to purchase new parts, but any other website is fine by me.

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: United States

PARTS PREFERENCES:
None, just the most effective for gaming/ 3D model rendering
OVERCLOCKING: Id rather not, even if it is more powerful in some cases.
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe?

MONITOR RESOLUTION: (upgrading this along with the graphics card)
Current = 1920x1080

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Im not set on the RTX 2700S (Super), if possible, I would just like to find a better card.
----------------------------------
TLDR:
This is my first time Upgrading my computer ( a starter computer made by Ibuypower back in 2017) I just need help figuring out what I need to upgrade along side my graphics card, and if so, what recommendations experienced PC builders would suggest.

Upgrade to an RX 590 Fatboy, Upgrade your RAM and CPU as well alongside the PSU to a 650 Watt because that 2070 will not work well AT ALL if you don't upgrade the rest of your parts with it. Is that $1500 budget for the upgrades? If so I can recommend a lot of things.
  1. Replace your motherboard with a 3rd gen ryzen motherboard like the B450 gaming plus max.
  2. Get a Ryzen 5 3600x or regular 3600.
  3. Get a Corsair RM series 750 watt PSU if you can afford the 2070S including what I listed below, if not a 650W will work fine. (fully modular is recommended, but not mandatory).
  4. Get 32GB of RAM, like 4 8GB sticks of G.skill Trident Z RAM, or 4 16GB sticks if you can. Try to keep the frequency above 3000MHZ.
  5. If there is enough money leftover get the 2070S.
  6. If the point above is too expensive, get a 5700XT or 5600XT instead (AMD card, but they're good).
