Hello Tomshardware!

I am looking to upgrade my GPU on my current PC and am having a hard time trying to figure out the best option.

I know my rig is old now but I don't have enough money to upgrade to new rig

My current build is:
Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650
Asus P5Q-E
8GB Ram
GT 520 2GB
corsair tx 650 v2 PSU

i want to play on games at 1920x1080 resolution. Anyone who can help me choice the best option without bottlenecking?

GTX 1050 ti is a good GPU for 1920x1080 resolution. Of course GTX 1060 3GB is far better and far expensive and surely QX9650 surely bottlenecks it.

update: the QX9650 is at stock 3,00 GHz or OC?
