  1. Unless you're running at least a 1440p screen the cards gets heavily bottlenecked by your CPU.
    It doesn't really fit to your build and is severe overkill.

    I wouldn't run a 1080 on a years old Corsair CX 430 either.

    max you should throw into the build is a gtx 1050 ti


    if you want a 1080 it's time for a complete system rebuild

  3. That 1080 is worth more than your entire computer, that's how unbalanced that would be. In a lot of games that 750 Ti is holding back performance, so a videocard upgrade would be worth it. Since you already have an entry level 2gb vram gaming card, to me it makes no sense to buy anything less than a 3gb or 4gb videocard as an upgrade. The entry level for that would be an RX 560 or GTX 1050 Ti. The 1050 Ti is the clear choice there.

    I think a 3gb 1060 would be worth considering only if you played primarily videocard dependent games and you wanted to run at higher settings and you wanted every last extra frame per second you could get.
