  1. Especially when overclocked, the 2600k is still an excellent CPU and I'd keep it. It will work well with a 1060 3GB, but if I were you I'd pay the extra bit for the 6GB version, it's faster and lots of games are already using more than 3GB of VRAM so it should be relevant longer.

    that psu has pretty bad capacitors, if it is old I would not trust it with anything better than a 1050 ti


    if you want a 1060, get a decent 520 - 550w psu to also allow for overclocking


    this is a good place to start, you want a tier 1 or 2 unit
