I was wondering if I could upgrade my GPU to a EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

     I have had this computer for a long time and have been wanting to upgrade it so I was wondering if that would be an ok gpu.   I have upgraded my total ram to 16GB instead of the 12GB.   I havn't upgraded my computer before besides the ram and am a little bit scared to upgrade things so I am verry curious if this would work or not.

The EVGA GTX 1060 has 11 submodels.  I looked at 2 of them.  It would require a 400W min PSU with an 8 pin PCIE power lead. Suggest you get a Corsair CX600,  it has what is needed.
