This is what I want to upgrade to:

From this: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/cW676s

To this: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/VP7yP3

Things that are kept the same/already have: -Water cooler -Ram -OS -Keyboard -Mouse -Wifi card -HDD

Is there anything that could need a change or such?

  • I definitely wouldn't get the 1070. Consider the 1660ti or 2060 instead - both outperform the 1070 and can be found for cheaper. 2060 if you want DLSS and RT, 1660ti if you don't care for either of those. I would personally opt for the 1660ti.

  • You may consider the Ryzen 7 1700 or regular 2700. 1700 has FAR more value to it but you'll lose a bit of clockspeed and a couple of features. 2700 has a slightly lower clockspeed but is quite a bit cheaper due to not having an RGB cooler. You'll be using an AIO anyway.

  • If you don't need W10 Pro, I wouldn't pay extra for it. In fact, if the Windows on your current build is the "full" version - you should be able to transfer it and not pay again.

  • Avoid the B3 series PSU. Consider EVGA G2/G3, BitFenix Whisper M or SeaSonic FOCUS.

  • You might consider spending ~$20 or so on a motherboard with built in WIFI. Much cleaner look without the WIFI adapter

you may also want to wait for when Ryzen 3000 is coming. More cores and higher clock speeds await.

Yes, this also might be worth waiting for. I know I am.

-I have to do more research to compare both the 1070, 2060, and 1660 ti to pick.

-By benchmarks for all three, 1700, 2700, and 2700x, with a little bit more money towards a processor, the 2700x succeeds both.

-I will just take your word on the PSU.

-I already have the wifi card, so buying a motherboard with built in while having a card is a little bit is wasting.
