    Hey guys. a bit noob question. but I need your help.
    I currently have a MSI Radeon RX 480 X OC. My motherboard is an ASUS B85 PLUS and my power supply is a Green 750 Watt.
    And I want to switch to a Asus rog strix GTX 1070 OC.

    I just want to know, would I face any problem in doing so? would my mother board and power supply unit support it fine? the mother board's socket slots ... are they the same as my own RX 480? would I need to improve any other part of my pc?

    Thanks in advance.

    As far as I can remember the 1070 is better in terms of power consumption than the RX480 so it shouldn't be a problem at all. A decent 750w PSU is plenty for any single GPU setup.

    ATM just change to a vega 56 you will have almost gtx 1080 performance and HBCC if you need more vram. sapphire Pulse is a great buy atm.
