A 4.2GHz Westmere hex core is still quite potent and you'd need a GPU far more powerful than a 1050Ti for the rest of your system to be the weak link while gaming at any reasonable IQ settings.

So I was thinking about GTX 1060 FOUNDERS EDITION... Because my Psu doesn't have 8pin connectors a I saw that the founders edition has 1 6 pin connector so that would work... Lol I went up with my budget to 300... And my monitor has G-Sync so i would like a nvidia card

Refrence card coolers are usualy not the best.

You should be able to pick up a 1060 6gb from your choice of vendor for ~$250-$300.

If your PSU is old enough/low wattage that it doesn't have an 8 pin, you may want to consider upgrading that as well.

You only have to have a PSU fail and kill everything once...

Hmm I just check all the cables... All my 6 pin connector come with 2 pin plug right next to it.... Would that be the 8 pin if you plug them in together?

1060 6GB or 580 8GB, although 580 is crazy overpriced, you can find deals on 1060 6GB here and there if you wait and hunt deals, as low as $250. 580 tends to be $320+ insanity at which point you could just wait a few weeks and pick up a 1070 for that price as it drops along with 1070Ti and 1080.

Most PCIe power connectors on PSU cables are 6+2 = 8.
