Will my pc be able to handle the GTX 1060?

Hello, I was wondering will this pc be able to use the GTX 1060 without a lot of upgrading of parts (from reading, I think I only need to upgrade the PSU?)

CPU - Intel Core i5-4460 3.2 GHz
Ram - DD3 6GB
WD Blue 1TB
Motherboard - Asus K30AD_M31AD_M51AD
PSU -300W http://www.acbel.com/eng/Product.aspx?id=79&&sd=31&&pid...

Is there also a huge impact from which model I would get from the GTX 1060?

And the parts that I need to change to be on budget!

Thanks in advance ;)

  1. You will need a PSU UPGRADE.

  2. Yeah that will worth if you want to play games but suggest that you upgrade the PSU because its not powerful enough to run the graphic card. You could try an 600-750W

    no, if it is a model with a decent cooler.

    psu - 100% need a decent 450w or better psu with a 6-pin pcie cable

    you may also need a new case, double check whatever 1060 you get can fit inside your case

    As SR-71 said, you WILL need to upgrade your power supply, it will not be sufficient enough for a GTX 1060. Other than purchasing a new PSU (which can be had for as low as $30 even for reliable 400-500W units), your system will be just fine. Hope this helps!
