What to upgrade first (CPU/MOBO/RAM or GPU)

So am looking to upgrade my gtx 980 to a gtx 1080ti and my 2600k to 8700k

Whats the best to upgrade first, all i do is gaming

Current setup:
i7 2600k @ 4.4ghz
asus maxiumus extreme-z
16gb 1866mhz
gtx 980

So is it worth upgrading to gen 8 or upgrade my gpu to later upgrade to gen 8

  1. And you want to upgrade - why exactly?
    Is there something your system can't do well enough?

    Id like to get close if not get a constant 144 fps on pubg for example for my monitor, currently only csgo runs on 144+ fps constantly
  3. PUBG, from what I understand, isn't a particularly well optimised game.

    Even an i7-8700k and GTX 1080 ti can't achieve 144 fps.

    They have optimized it a bit better recently but i want to get as close as possible, would it be a huge diffrence from a 8700k vs a 8700k in games like pubg/csgo?
