PC upgrade i3 2120 HD6570 v2

Id like to upgrade my current PC.. I have Intel i3-2120 (1155), H61MLV2 biostar motherboard, and ATI Radeon HD6570 v2 2gbs graphics card, and 350W PSU.. I was thing about buying a used Intel i3-3570 procesor (same socket), and gtx1060 or something similar.. I am wondering if im going to have any problems with this mobo, or is there something i could improve..

  1. according to the support page for your mother board does not support the i3 3570. It may work as there are other i3/i5/i7 CPUs from that generation that work with it so you may get lucky. Without confirmed support though it is not 100%. If I were you I would consider the i5 3570S or better yet an i7 3770T. both give you more cores and threads to work with which are becoming very important in gaming.
