I'm planning an upgrade of a gaming PC. This is my current setup:

CPU: Intel Core i5-4430 @ 3.00GHz
MB: ASUS H-81 Plus
GPU: GeForce GTX 560 Ti

I want to replace GPU with RXT2060 and later at some point upgrade CPU to i7.

The question is:

Is this plan viable? Will I have noticable performance growth if I only upgrade the GPU? Or must I upgrade both at once?

Thank you very much in advance for your answers!

  • @ArtOfCode excuse me but where in my question do you see the techincal support / troubleshooting request? I'm not asking for that! I'm literally asking to "to provide pre-purchase hardware recommendation" – infranoise Feb 2 '19 at 8:24
  • @ArtOfCode removed all mentions of dead GPU from my question. Probably it was what caused the misunderstanding. – infranoise Feb 2 '19 at 8:29
  • Hi, Welcome to HW Recs! In general we don't answer viability questions or "does-this-work?" type questions. Our site is best suited for direct purchase recommendations (e.g. GPU upgrade recommendation or CPU upgrade recommendation, preferably as seperate questions if possible). – Bennett Yeo Feb 4 '19 at 1:42
  • @BennettYeo thank you, now it makes sense to me – infranoise Feb 4 '19 at 11:26
