I have currently decided to upgrade my video card, processor, and power supply in my desktop but I am unsure of what is compatible with my motherboard (GA-97OA-DS3P FX) and other components, I would like some advice as to what is all compatible and what I should upgrade.  




gtx 1070 mini: 



ryzen 2600x:  



power supply:






 GA-97OA-DS3P FX motherboard 


8gb ram


AMD fx 6300 six-core processor, 3500mhz


windows 10


apevia atx-vn500w 12v power supply 


nvidia gt geforce 730 6gb 


1tb hdd



I bought this pc pre-built and was also wondering if it is worth upgrading at all? or do just upgrade everything else to match what i want to put in it? (such as the motherboard, power, ram, or case)

You'll need new motherboard too. And new memory. PSU is also bad quality.

There is no point upgrading that machine. You basically must replace everything except perhaps HDD and DVD drive if present. So I suggest selling current one and building new one from scratch.
