    i need an experts help regarding my pc and upgrading it, picking the right stuff.
    .
    i'm still a noob when it comes to the insides and parts of a pc, but im learning, ive just learnt to install and un-install my ram and gpu. and il hopefully teach myself to do my psu aswell, so please answer in a way a rookie would understand.


    i currently have a gtx 1050 2gb
    and 2 sticks of crucial ddr3 4gb ram
    and my mother board is a, GIGABYTE 78LMT-USB3

    im looking into buying a gtx 1060 6gb next month. and at some point this year also upgrading from 8gb ddr3 ram to, 16gb ddr3 ram.

    i have tried so much to research and still haven't had my questions answered.

    im on a budget, but stretched for a better gpu for future purposes.

    now ive been told i also need a power supply in order to make these all work better.

    would you guys be able to tell me of a decent psu that will power my current pc (in the link), and my future upgrade of a gtx 1060 6gb, and 16gb of ddr3 ram. something not to expensive, but reliable, fits my case, and it compatible with my motherboard.

    It's only been 1-1/2 hours since you started this thread so please be patient. This is not live tech support and the people who assist are all volunteers who give of their time and expertise to help others. It's customary to wait at least 24-48 hours before bumping a thread back up to the top if there haven't been any replies.

    OK, first of all, the specs you linked to are highly inaccurate. Just as an example, it shows processor as an intel then lists an amd fx6350 which also shows the wrong speed. The 6350 runs at 3.9gig and the specs list 4.2gig for processor speed.

    What exactly do you intend on replacing ie motherboard, ram, and cpu OR are you just intending on installing a new pw supply?
    I agree that you will need a better quality pw supply. The units that come with pre-built systems are almost always low quality. The exception being the alienware gaming systems; those have decent pw supplies.

    Do understand that the fx6350 is now 4yrs old and investing money in obsolete hardware is very often not cost effective. A 6350 is fine for basic use ie web access, email, office, etc. It is not really up to running modern games.

    And that raises another question; what do you use the PC for?
    If it is gaming, the GTX 1060 is two times faster than the GTX 1050 and you will definitely notice the difference playing games.
    But; for normal word processing, internet usage, etc., either one of those video cards is being wasted.

    That board has 4 memory sockets. Do your wallet a favor and buy two more of what you have now!
