  1. Is your current rig struggling with 1080p/60? Because it shouldn't be

    Not really, on some games that arent optimized i do see frame drops. I start to really notice them when i stream though i struggle to hit 60 FPS.
  3. if your close to a micro center look at there cpu and mb combo deals. swap out the ssd for an m2 ssd for speed. check to see if your old power supply is haswell supported if it is reuse it and use the funds for a good sound card.

    I'd upgrade the GPU to a 1070 (or better) and maybe overclock that CPU to around 4ghz with a good aftermarket cooler. Something like this would be a massive upgrade for the price.

    Found a good deal on the motherboard and Processor, What about the Graphics card should i upgrade to a 1080Ti or is that just overkill?
  6. If you can get a 1080ti for it! Beast right now with future proofing to boot. It wont be long until we are 8k
