can I upgrade my gpu?

I have a 1060 at the moment and I was wondering if I could upgrade it to a 1080. My current cpu is a I5 6600k OC with a PSU of 550W 80 PLUS Gold, my MB is a Z170 Pro Gaming.
Thank you in advance

  1. Unless that PSU is junk, you should be fine.

    What PSU is it specifically? "550W Gold" doesn't mean too much, unfortunately.

    Absolutely no problem at all. Upgrade away. Just make sure you're going to see a benefit fairly proportionate with the cost.

    If you're gaming at 1080p, a 1060 or 1070 is likely more than sufficient - although a 1080 may be beneficial if you're playing high FPS titles on 120Hz+ monitor.
