My Current Computer is X3700 at the moment and my current GPU is RTX 2060S(great GPU!) and I was thinking of upgrading RTX 4060TI 16GB but it would put pressure on CPU if that is Correct?

My Power Supply is 600 Watts

I think the cpu might become the bottleneck for the gpu, but it wouldn't be a huge amount. And you should be able to use the 600w without too much trouble if it's a decent power supply, but i would upgrade to a 700 - 800w

The best method i have found to check for bottlenecks is run a demanding game and see what's maxed out. If say for example the cpu is at 100%, but the gpu is at 80% then the cpu is the bottleneck.

Seem to me that RTX 4060TI used Less power than my RTX 2060S!

I going go for PC Specialist Custom pc but for them to charge ya arm and leg for window 11 is too much where you buy any window software for peanut on internet if you look for it (yup I would go that route) :)

then other website that I don't know of is

PALICOM
AWD IT
SCAN(I did bought computer about 5 years ago and where all the time gone......as it like you being TIME MACHINE LOL )
Ebuyer(well not custom pc ....more of pre build pc)

OR build yourself PC but the cost does add up quickly hence why is best to research on PC Case, Motherboard, CPU, Ram, Power Supply and finally Graphics card :)

I consider a downgrade if it dosn't meet your requirements. I have a 4090, but could get by with a 3060TI :)

if you are still researching, id like to add:
regarding the psu:
if you dont max out gpu and cpu altogether, a good (i.e. efficient) 600w psu is still a proper choice as already mentioned above.
regarding the cpu-gpu-limit:
there was a rather big test i stumbled upon, written in german (https://www.computerbase.de/2023-12/gpu-braucht-cpu-2023-amd-test/2/). for the graphs you dont need to translate anything (i dont recommend computerbase, dont get me wrong, i do not recommend any computer hardware websites nowadays, especially their forums are BS). the data they harvested is interesting.
