I have got a GTX 1060 OC (3gb) at home. I want to get a new PC, like a cheap Z420 that i found, and upgrade that PC to the 1060. Would that work out?

 

(And does anybody know what motherboard this is?)

Whats the goal?

 

A z420 even with the best cpu is kinda crap for gaming today. Also depends on the model of z420 if it even has the needed 8/6pin

The HP Z420 is a decade old and is limited to the Xeon E5 v0 and v2 families (Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge). There's no reason it won't work as long as you have PCIe power, but I think you'll be disappointed in its gaming performance unless you're replacing a Core 2 machine.

 

What PC are you looking to replace?

Dell owns my soul.
