no problem. i am slightly worried about the quality of the PSU however.

 

 

take a look at the rx 580. it should be cheaper in most regions and performs the same

Your PSU should be fine but consider getting a 650W in the future.

Rx 580 it is cheaper, but I don't think that my PSU can Handle an 185W GPU

you PSU can handle a Vega 64. wattage is rarely if ever a problem.

 

PSU quality can be however

 

 

its why we have the PSU tier list.

id be worried as hexa is in tier G. meaning i would highly recommend grabbing an rx 580 and very quickly start saving towards a new PSU. Tier B and up

FSP Hexa is in tier G at the bottom. idk how it relates to your PSU. is yours just 80+ or is 80+ bronze or silver,etc?

in the US the corsair CX750 (2017) is on sale for quite a nice price. (750 watts is overkill but its on sale so that is why)

 more top tier option is the EVGA supernova G2. which are quite cheap atm aswell (in the US)

After upgrading to an 1060 I will start saving for an PSU, but i want to know, it's hard to change an PSU?

unconnect all the cables and put the new ones back in. it can be somewhat annoying cable managing but its not hard.

 

get an rx 580 if its cheaper, you save a penny towards the PSU, food or other components essential to your life

But after You changed Your PSU You don't need any change in the BIOS?, Right?

the rx 580 probably is better on the texture plane but antialias and shadows is more a nvidia thing... I haven't tested it for myself though.. i'm basing my judgement here on benchmarks... i'm still dying to get my hands on a rx 80 or 90 but that will prob be next year...

nothing needs to be changed or updated. it is simply to change the component
