Hi there,

Would you be able to tell me if these components in my PC are good enough and I will be fine to upgrade to a 3070 without any bottlenecks or issues etc? And if it would be worth upgrading RAM speed/size? As well as any suggestions you have.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600X 6 Core Socket AM4 4.25GHz CPU Processor
(My current looking to upgrade) GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 G1 Gaming 3GB Video Card
RAM: Kingston HyperX FURY 8GB (2x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz Memory Black
PSU: Corsair VS Series V2 650W 80 Plus White Power Supply
Motherboard: MSI B350 TOMAHAWK AM4 ATX Motherboard
Case: Cooler Master MasterBox Lite 5 RGB ATX Case - Tempered Glass Window

Thanks very much in advance!
yes to both,

your Corsair VS is older, but you should be OK to drive a 3070 (you should need about 425 to 475W, so 650 is plenty)

You also will benefit from upgrading to 2x8 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM (CAS 16 or tighter)
