I would like to upgrade my psu and fans.

Hello, I have an HP Envy 860-014 desktop PC, it has a standard 500 watt Delta power supply but I would like to upgrade this so I can enhance my graphics card (currently it's a GTX 1050 ti) not a bad card but I would like to get a 1060 or 1070. Which PSU can I upgrade this particular PC with? So it will fit and all the cables will go in place and no problems will occur? Also if I upgrade my PSU will I have to upgrade my fans as well, they seem pretty weak currently for a 1060 or 1070 graphics card. Any help would be appreciated. 

Here are my pc specs - https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04816928

@SNAKE1998,

You will need to upgrade the PSU to attain more power and have the propePCIE power plugs.  I would suggest the Corsair CX600 (exavt fir), and it has all you would need.  The GTX1050Ti (75W) required no added power plug.  The GTX1060 needs 120W, the GTX 1070 needs 150W.  The 600W will supply the required wattage.

As for placement, read the guide, and measure.  Your new card must fit within the guidelines.
