I am using a system from 2018. Specs are:
Processor: Ryzen 5 1400 4 Core 3.2Ghz
Motherboard: Gigabyte 320M HD Rev. 2
GPU: Gigabyte Gtx 1060 6GB OC Windforce
PSU: Corsair CV 450W Bronze+ (non-modular)
RAM: Corsair 2600Mhz

I am planning to upgrade to:
Processor: Intel i5 12400F
Motherboard: Gigabyte Aorus B660M Pro (non-wifi most probably)/ MSI MAG B660M Mortar DDR4
(Not changing power supply unit or other components for now. Will upgrade to 3060Ti when I have saved enough).
My usage:
  1. Gaming at 1080p@60 (
  2. Video editing
Now my question is, is 12400F good enough to last me 4-5yrs and still provide 60+ fps & won't bottleneck 3060ti or 3070?
Is this configuration good and compatible? What PSU will I need if I switch for RTX cards I mentioned?
What changes would you suggest, If any?
Budget: 30-35INR or 390-450USD (for processor and motherboard)

If 650 W is what’s preferred for that video card that’s what I would give it at least I would probably give it an 800 good quality power supply. The last thing you wanna do is overtax your system with the power supply being the most critical piece of hardware that you have don’t cheap out

If it blows out on you can take out all of your stuff with it and you haven’t saved a penny by cheeping out

Stop it, i kept a 10900k OC to 5.0 Ghz and a RTX 3090 with powelimit to 107% on a 650 SFX PSU without any problems. Chnaged the PSU so that i can OC the cpu to 5.3 Ghz but for under 200W CPU you can keep even a rtx 3090 on a 650W PSU. 3060TI consums with 200W less then a rtx 3090 so 450W should be plenty for now, no OC.

I will buy 3060Ti later. Right now I have 1060 which should not be a problem for 450W PSU. Will upgrade to 650W when I get new GPU.

Damn! How did you managed to get such higher clocks on that PSU? Never heard anywhere that this can be done without something blowing up.
