Question

Is this old boy worthy of GPU upgrade or I should buy new pc

Hi guys,

I was just curious about your oppinion about my pc upgrade/getting new pc. I have this build:

https://www.amazon.com/MSI-Skylake-H170-Motherboard-M3/dp/B014YN672S

https://www.amazon.com/Intel-Core-i5-6500-Processor-BX80662I56500/dp/B010T6CWI2

https://www.amazon.de/Chieftec-GPC-600S-600W-Silber-Netzteil/dp/B01EA108NS

and the rest of the stuff is not important. The thing is that my GPU died and I dont know if it is a good idea to buy just new GPU (I want probably gtx 1070 or rtx 2070) to this old PC or just go full out and buy myself completely new rig. I am a PC noob so if this question is stupid I apologize in advance.

Thanks

You have a single rail psu......that's good
Your cpu looks ample.
Your ram looks good.

Go for a gtx 1070.
