Attached is the spec sheet for my 5 year old PC gaming machine. Need to know if I can plug in a GTX 1070 instead of the 560, or if I just need to bite the bullet and start over.

I'm so glad Niterider doesn't seem to be here any longer to give me shit about having one built.

Processor and ram seem fine. After looking out that processor runs with a newer card on Battlefront, that'll be all you will need.

 

I would just make sure that the card will fit in your case. It looks big enough, but I would double check to make sure.

Your PC is above the minimum requirements for Overwatch. You wouldn't even need to buy a new card to play it.

I have the same card (though it may have 2gb instead of one, don't recall).

You should be able to use a GTX 1070 no problem, that definitely has a PCIe x16 slot, and the power supply has enough juice. The only thing I can see would be a very nice upgrade is an SSD.

I think the "founder's edition" 1070s are still the only ones available, and they're $200 more expensive than the 1070 is supposed to be. I'm considering upgrading to a 1070, but not for $580. AMD revealed a handful of new cards recently, including a card similar to what's supposed to be in the PS4 Neo I believe. That card would be a substantial upgrade for your PC and it's only $200 (RX480). Just as another option for you.
