Hi Guys

Looking for some advice on upgrading a graphics card.

My current spec:

AMD Ryzen 7 2700
GTX 1660 Ventus XS 6gb
Gigabyte A320M-SH2 AMD AM4 motherboard
32gb RAM
500w 80+PSU

This is my first upgrade and not sure if I can just change the graphics card or if I have to change anything else to support.

Thanks

Edited to add: I have recently upgraded my TV so my resolution has changed from 1280x720 to 3840x2160 60htz

I think I read that the 60htz is basically 60fps, I'm currently getting 30 and under on max settings

If your now gaming at 4k you need a new GPU. 3080 or equivalent. You wont be able to get one for months though.
You would also need a new PSU for the new card as 500w wont cut it. Nothing wrong with the rest of your setup.

Do you have an ssd ?

yeah I see there is a shortage of GPUs at the moment

would 850w be adequate for a 3080?
