Hello, I built this PC about a year ago now, and have upgraded it over time, I have now updated the below listing to the current specs: Parts Listing
As you can see, I'm running a GTX 960 and a Corsair CX 600W which is keeping the PC is running great, however I am wanting to upgrade it something much more powerful - a GTX 1070. But before I do make this upgrade, I am wanting to ensure that my PSU can handle the graphics card, as well as all the other components.
Currently, there are no components that are being overclocked but I am planning to finally start overclocking once I upgrade my GPU. But I am worried that the PSU will not be able to handle it, so I'll have to upgrade that as well - a really nice PSU, which I recommend for people building their Gaming PC's (especially your first, which this PC was my first build).
What do you think? Will the PSU be able to 'comfortably' power the PC if I was to upgrade to a GTX 1070 instead of a GTX 960? And from experience, how much overclocking power could I squeeze out of the PSU till it becomes unstable (just an estimate is what I'm looking for), and would it really be worth overclocking it.
I can see from the listing that PCPartPicker cannot find any compatibility issues, but I'm just double checking (no harm, right?)
