Envy 700-074 Video Card Upgrade and CPU Upgrade

HP Recommended
Envy 700-074
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I recently started playing more graphics intensive games on my PC and started noticing performance issues with my current graphics card.

My current CPU is an Intel(R) Core (TM) i5-4430 CPU @3.00 GHZ and my current graphics card is the Intel (R) HD Graphics 4600.

The game I have started playing requires 5.1 pixel shader, 5.1 vertex shader and 3072 MB of Dedicated Video Ram.

I was recommended that in order to play the game relatively smoothly I would need at minimum a GTX 760 and to get a better play experience a GTX 1060 (VRAM 3GB) and for  a minimum CPU of and Intel Core i5-4460, 3.0 GHz with a reccomended of an Intel Core i7 3770 3.4 GHz.

I then began looking around at options for graphics cards and CPUs that were up to the task.

I was wondering if you could find me a CPU that fits within the qualifications and a graphics card that is compatible with the PC ideally one that is similar to the GTX 1060.

Furthermore, I found this graphics card on amazon that is within my price limit, I was wondering if this was compatible with the PC :


Thank you for the help!
