Will my PC benifit more from the gtx 1060 or the gtx 1070

So I bought a low end PC for around 2k without looking at any of the specs because I didn't know better at the time and I don't really want to buy a new one so I just want to upgrade it.
If my PC can't handle it can you suggest another graphics card that can run pubg, deadbydaylight and what not in med to high settings?
My Specs :

CPU - amd a8-7600
RAM - 8gb, DDR3
MOTHERBOARD - MSI A68HI SP550 (SSD)
Current Graphics: g276HL (x3) and amd radeon R7 graphics(msi)
PSU: i have no idea what it is bc there is no sticker
ps i bought the pc from harvey norman so -rep :) and if you think i should be upgrading a different part please say it and say what i should get. And if you could suggest a place to buy the parts please link it
thanks

  1. i´m sorry to tell you this:
    but you should have avoided buying this system in the first place .

    there is really not much to do :
    adding anything more powerful than gtx 1050 / radeon rx 560 would be the waste of money .
    that processor is to weak for acceptable frame rates in PUBG though .

    also with not knowing what psu this system has you cannot just add some more power hungry graphics card to it .
  2. None of the two. Sorry, your cpu would bottleneck dose cards. You can get a RX460 or gtx 1050 without changing platform.
  3. My first PC was a budget gaming build with an A10-5800k (similar to the A8). I upgraded from the iGPU to a R7 260x later on. From there I saved more for a GTX 970 however in many CPU intensive games like GTA5 or gaming and streaming scenarios I saw no significant increase in performance to warrant the cost of that GPU.

    Your bottle neck is the CPU. The FM2+ platform is not intended for use with high-end gaming. For games that require little CPU power you will scrape by, but don't expect every game to run better with a GPU upgrade.

    Your upgrade path should be a CPU + motherboard + GPU. Upgrade all 3 to experience a worthwhile upgrade. Otherwise a GTX 1050ti or RX 560 should be the farthest you should go without a CPU/motherboard upgrade.

    I hope you didn't pay 2000USD for that PC, no iGPU PC should cost that much. To put in perspective my budget build with that A10 was $450 for the motherboard, CPU, ram, powersupply.

    will that be able to run pubg at stable 60-70 frames and med? or should i save up and go for one round 1100?

    you can try to sell it on gumtree; also there are plenty of good second hand pc's on there that are worth considering.
