Hi I'm interested in upgrading my y520 tower gpu from a gtx 1060 to a rtx 2060.Is it compatible for a switch without changing the motherboard? Thanks

The motherboard is not a problem, but you need to find out which power supply (PSU) your system has in it, because it could have shipped with a 280W, 400W or 450W, and if you want to install a 2060 you would need to have the 450 Watt PSU, and if not upgrade the PSU with a more powerful one.    

 

Luckily if you have the Y520T-25xxx it takes a standard ATX power supply, so you have lots of options.
