Hello,

I'm thinking about upgrading my GPU. I feel like its outdated and I need a better one.
After looking around a bit, I think I want to buy a 1060 6gb.

This is my current system: https://gyazo.com/629c13ba5fa80a027a1915be425e7292
(Yes the CPU temp is a little high, I will reapply thermal paste soon.)

So my main concern would be a bottleneck after upgrading my GPU.

I inted to use this pc for playing E sports games and new(er) games with over 60fps on higher settings.

Would this upgrade be a good thing to do? Or What card would you recommend for me if the 1060 isn't the best choice?


Thanks in advance!

NO, i5 4440 will not bottleneck even a gtx 1070 .but if you get a gtx 1060 and want to play AAA title games in higher setting .You might not be able to get above 60fps in some modern games like Mankind divided,Rise of the tomb raider,The Witcher 3 etc . For playing EA games go for it.

I guess upcoming titles with "high" graphic demands, and titles that already came out but still require a solid pc.

Stock fan on CPU as of now, I was thinking about upgrading that aswell.
Im not sure about my PSU, but it's 500 watts.

cpu fan and psu won't improve performance, it might improve stability and longevity of your system.
if your cpu temp is reasonable (if not, likely you just need to clean dust and reapply thermal paste)
and 500w is plenty for a 1060. i would say just leave them.

Im aware. But I heard that the stock intel coolers suck. for 25 euros or something im willing to upgrade for a cooler cpu and less noise possibly.

stock cooler it is complete unacceptable for i7 non-k,
but for i5, it's fine, it runs hotter than aftermarket fans for sure, but still with in reasonable range.

The ARCTIC Freezer 7 pro rev2 is another good choice.
