Looking to upgrade GPU from a 1070ti to a 3070ti

Any thoughts and ideas? Do I need to upgrade something before getting a GPU?

 

 

Thank you!

Your CPU might bottleneck it a little bit, but probably not by a huge amount. Depends on the games you play, of course. Could be worth looking at a 6800 XT, which is a bit cheaper with better rasterization performance.

On second look, yeah, the power supply could use a bit of an upgrade as Latvian Video said.

You would definitely want a higher wattage PSU to deal with the transient spikes that 30 series has in power. I would've upgraded to a 5600x during black friday sales if that were an option, but it is too late for that.

Your SSD is also a bit meh, try getting a better one. Say a 500GB one from Samsung, or Crucial which is having sale.

 

But defiantly PSU, 3070Ti would need a ~850W one. Some 600W might be able to do pull it off, but I would go 750-800 range.
