Maybe I've been playing too much Far Cry 4.. what I was trying to ask here is.. which upgrade from GTX 950 is better? Radeon RX480 8GB or Nvidia GTX1060 6GB? going beyond these 2 GPU is out of question because of budget problem. Sorry for the inconvenience.

You need one 8-pin connector to hook up to the RX 480, and check the amps that your power supply delivers over the 12V rail from its labelling sticker. If you have an 8 pin connector and it is at least 33 amps, then you are fine.

GPU's work on every pci-e mobo. Just checked yours and as long as your psu can support it you are fine. Keep in mind that it can draw up to 170 W. Also make sure you install it on x16 slot for optimal performance

Yes, i7 and RX480 will do well in pretty much any game or application you could use. However, the i7 cost/performance ratio isn't necessarily ideal, and I would recommend a cheaper i5-6500 and graduating to a GTX 1070, at least for gaming.

Best upgrade ever. I used to have R9 270x for a while until I upgrade to this. It is the best cheapest GPU that I have ever bought. 10/10 from me.
