I'd say stick with the most current drivers. I didn't realize mine were out of date.

You should replace the PSU because its a 9 year old unit made by HEC with only a 3 year warranty and the fact that the OEM is HEC means its not a very good unit

Edit: it cant do anywhere near its full wattage and stay inside ATX specifications so what you have is not even an 850 watt its more like a crappy 600 watt unit

Saying its not very good is an understatement and more like one of the worst series ever sold by Thermaltake and words like god awful is not an overstatement
Any sort of upgrade to the PC without buying a new PSU might put the whole PC at risk of damage

Would a GTX 1060 with 6 GB be ok?

IF you can overclock your cpu (to at least 4.5 GHz), it's worth upgrading some key compartments. Otherwise, it is better to get a new rig - even an used 7700k with a good motherboard will do. A 2700k at stock speed is too slow for current games at a decent resolution (not the one you currently use ).

These are the parts that you need to upgrade:
1) GPU: get an used 1080 (about 350$) or new 2070 (about 550)
2) Monitor: get a 1440p screen of 27 or 32" at least 120hz with freesync. Model depends on your budget!
3) PSU: my usual recommendation is Corsair HX or SF series, 600W or higher. They will last 10+ years.

I think currently the best balance between costs ad gaming experience is 1440p, and my suggestions are towards that setup.

new rig 2019:
Intel 9900k >5ghz | Asus Maximus XI Gene | Eisbaer 360 LT (custom loop in progress) | bequiet! Dark Base 700 white edition | Team group Nighthawk 16GB 4000mhz | MSI RTX 2070 Armor | Storage: Intel Optane 900p 280GB + Samsung 970 evo plus 1TB + WD Red 3TB | Corsair HX850i | Benq BL3200PT 1440p | 1Gbit ftth |

You dont need a 750 watt PSU for a system with a GTX 1060 thats more than double what the system will ever draw
A good 550 watt would be more than enough power so buy a quality PSU not the cheapest and bigest unit you can find

The Corsair RMx the Seasonic Foucs Plus and the EVGA G3 are all good options, if you dont mind semi modular there is the normal Seasonic Focus or the Corsair TX Gold
The CX750M is not all that great

Edit: dont know if you are in the US but here are newegg links

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...-095-_-Product
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...-203-_-Product
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...-210-_-Product

All are better as well as cheaper than a CX750M

You play at 1280x1024 and wanna play BFV ... then you need to focus on CPU and not GPU. Time to ditch your platform, really. At the very least, crank the vCore and OC as high as you can.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)
Intel i5 6400 Skylake @ X4 4588mhz (+69.9%)
