Can my PC support a 1070 Ti

So my first gaming pc was a pre built Trace940 from iBuyPower and I'm wondering if it'll support a MSI Geforce GTX 1070 Ti. I believe it can but I don't want to buy a $400- $500 Graphics Card and find out that my computer can't support it. I have i7-8700 CPU, 16GB of ram, a 500 watt PSU. I'm pretty sure my computer can support just would like to know from people that know more than me since I'm knew to the PC gaming field and love it and want to get more into it I also stream and use 3 monitors all at 144HZ.

look, not that I don't trust Ibuypower, but check two things (i can do one for you with some details)

1. does it fit inside the case? (can't check that)

2. is the psu good enough for it? (this i can check, I only need a picture of the label or the model number of the psu)

Hello and Welcome to the LTT Forum.

 

First of all, you need to check the brand and the model number of the PSU that comes with that CPU to be sure it can support the 1070 ti, because it has a higher TDP then the 1060 3GB.

wattagewise it won't even be a problem... I run a 8600k 1070 ti system on 550 watts, and I still have a lot of headroom. I'm just concerned about the quality

That is exactly why i asked him about that, because we dont know the "quality of the PSU", it might be a 600w PSU but if i doesnt have a good quality he'll need to change it.

If you open your case to check on your PSU product number you might also check how many 6+2 PCIe Power Cables it has (it should be something you can research with the model number but why not just look?)

I have an i5-8600, 16gb ram, 550w psu (the same cpu but less multicore performance) and its a perfect match so yours will be ideal :)

Btw rtx 2060 will have almost as good performance and is only 350$, maybe worth looking into?

^^^ From Jay's video on it it was beating the 1070 Ti in pretty much everything and the FE version is $349 with no markup (they swapped to proper coolers on the FE models as well, he said highest he got it to was 68C). Watch it for yourself and see, the RTX 2060 actually seems to be a solid card:
