Hi all,

I'm hoping to upgrade my CPU and GPU soon, to an i7 9700k & RTX 2070 (Super 8GB), going from what I currently have:

Intel i5 4690k
GeForce GTX 1060 3GB

I'm also going to upgrade from 8GB of RAM to 16GB.

Will this be enough to max out games like Red Dead Redemption 2 on 1080p and at least 60fps? I'd just love some insight as to whether these parts are a decent upgrade and if I'm getting the most bang for my buck.

Also, will I require a PSU upgrade with these parts? I currently have a XFX ATX 550W but it's pretty old now (5+ years).

Any clarification and advice would be super! :)
