I am currently building a new PC so I'm looking to give away my previous self build from 2011'ish to the kids. What I was wondering is would a modern graphics card, say something like a GTX 1660Ti be suitable for a GPU upgrade. I see from the spec that it still supports PCIe v3.
Will the old CPU & Memory bottleneck the GTX 1660Ti significantly? If I decide to refresh the custom look would a decent overclock help?
CPU : Core i7-2700K
Motherboard : Asus Rampage Gene IV (PCIe 3)
Memory : 16GB DDR3
GPU : GTX 580
Storage : SSD & HDD
PSU : Corsair HX1050
Custom Water cooling loop (CPU & GPU) - Needs some work.
