New GPU on existing machine. Will it work?

Go to solution Solved by bmx6454,

yes, it will work fine, just at pci 3.0 instead of 4.0, which won't make a noticeable difference anyway.

I'm currently searching for a 3070(Rtx 3070 Ventus 3x) card and will it work on my machine? I'm concerned about the MOBO, I will upgrade the PSU to 750W with the GPU upgrade.

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Lol, Valorant and new releases want to get them to at least 60fps, preferably 144fps.

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc):

1080p 144hz monitor, 2nd 1080p 60hz monitor (planning in the future to upgrade to 1440p)

16gb 2666hz memory

i5 9600k CPU

1060 6GB GPU (currently)

H310M PRO-VD MOBO

550W PSU

The mobo seems trashy but won't ever prevent a GPU from working, as long as it allows CPU to work  🙂

I guess the 750 PSU will be enought?

Yes enough, but I'd suggest you to purchase a higher capacity one, so in the future if you'd like to upgrade again, you might still be able to use the then current PSU.

 

Linus suggested to go with a 850W PSU for a 3070 in one of his videos.

I won't do that, I mean +100W don't warrant a PSU upgrade.. Keep the 750W one or buy a 1000W+ for future RTX4000 GPU 🙂

He got a 550W and want a 750W. I agree if up want 4000 series at some point, he should get a 1000W instead. And not something crappy, I suggest a RM1000x or something like that

Conventional wisdom would make most think that. But you never really know what any of this stuff is going to do until you put it together. Case in point, I upgraded an MSI B450M Bazooka in 2020 from 8GB RAM, 2TB HDD and GT1030 to 32GB RAM, 1TB M.2 and GTX1650S. The board booted with the GT1030, but gave a VGA debug light with the GTX1650. Finally shut down and had to be sent off for RMA, they never did say what happened. Now I'm finding out a very real possibility the RAM was incompatible with the board, but I can't see that allowing boot with one GPU and not with another.

What 750w psu are you looking at?

 

The 9600k will for sure hold back the new gpu as its a pure 6core without hyperthreading. Stuttering will also not go away as it simply lacks the threads needed. So keep that in mjnd

I was actually getting ready to say that OP might want to think about an LGA1150 or an LGA1200 if they can swing it.
