Thank you in advance!

Hi Dopamin3 thanks for the quick reply!

Would my psu be enough to run a gtx 1080?

More info from you would be helpful

What kind of monitor will you be using (resolution/refresh rate)?
What games do you play?
What is your budget?
Do you do professional video editing or is it just a hobby?

The monitiors I use now are 2x aoc e2343f but I will be buying the dell ultrasharp U3415W 34.

I currently don't play any games on my pc as it cannot handle anything, I would like to play games like battlefield and gta5 on it.

In terms of budget i'm some what flexible, I was thinking of around £500.

Video editing is very much a hobby.

I would suggest the 1070 or if you want more power, wait and see if amd will come out with a new card that will provide better value than the 1080. If you end up getting an ultrawide 1440p monitor, you may need to turn down a couple of the more intensive graphic settings in newer games (with a 1070).

I'm not familiar with your CPU but you may want to do some research on it. I have a feeling it will bottleneck any new gpu that you purchase.

The way i see it, you have 2 main choices.
1. Minor change: Stick with your current system and just upgrade gpu to gtx 1060 (stay on a 1080p 60hz monitor).
2. More significant upgrade: new cpu, mobo, ram. gtx 1070/1080. Upgrade to high res monitor.

Price out both options at your local prices and see if option 2 is worth it for you. If its too pricy, stick with option 1.
