    Upgrade question!

    Hey guys, basically I'm not in a position to buy a whole new computer because I want to save money for traveling but I would like to put a new graphics card in to hopefully future proof my computer for another 2/3 years so basically I want to know if changing my graphics card would actually do that to my current system or if I would just be better to hold out and buy a whole new pc in a couple of years or so. My current rig is as follows:

    Processor - Intel core i5 3570k overclocked to 4.5Ghz
    Motherboard - Asus Maximus V Gene Z77
    GPU - Nvidia 2GB EVGA GTX660ti
    Ram - 16GB
    3 TB Seagate Hard Drive
    260GB SSD
    850 Watt Power supply

    I was thinking about maybe a EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB SC??
    I can pick one up for fairly cheap here https://www.scan.co.uk/products/evga...-1468mhz-boost

    OR, would that not really cut it and something else be better?

    Current games are:
    CS:GO
    Overwatch
    would probably play PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds aswell if i got the card
    and then just any potential games in future that catch my eye

    Thanks for any advice!

    EDIT: Added games I play/consider playing.
