Throw +175 and +400 on my memory, and it just runs more smooth and better. Stable 2075 Mhz.

The voltage curve method was cool to hit 2114 Mhz and show on here to compensate for my small penis but that's all it was good for.

Hahahahaha! The ePeen is all that counts in these forums.

Ordered a ASUS Strix 1080ti yesterday when I saw it was finally available.

The rest of my system is fairly old at the moment and I have been thinking of upgrading but just haven't gotten around to it.

Currently running a i7 2600k clocked @ 4.6 ghz, 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 RAM & a 2GB Sapphire Radeon HD6970.... So yeah I've been running this build for about 6 years now, it has aged well and still runs great.

Only thing I don't like is that the 6970 has gotten annoying with it's high temps and loudness. Part of the reason why I even wanted a new video card in the first place. I figured I would future proof myself and get the brand spankin' new 1080ti and figure out if I want to upgrade the rest of my stuff later on.

So basically... should I upgrade my system now or wait on it as everything else still runs pretty great? Maybe there is better stuff on the horizon I should wait for?

Most definitely upgrade all the components, new cpu and new mobo along with new ram is a must, otherwise your new card will be bottlenecked by the cpu. We are talking about the increase of both the average framerate and more importantly the min framerate that will just skyrocket with the new cpu.

Agreed!

The moment when your Video RAM amount becomes closer to your operating RAM memory amount ...priceless biggrin.gif

Same here, I spent more time tweaking with no improvement over what I was getting with my slider settings.

gunit2004  You should just relax and test it out on the games you play. It depend a lot what frame rate you want, if it is 60-72 there will only be problems in some places, in some games. More that that, maybe but you should also think about what you upgrade target would be and i would wait till Coffee lake or Ryzen 2/3 when games start to better make use of it with cores and compatibility. Greed for the future FTW!

I thought this CPU upgrading debate was already addressed a few pages back? Like the others said, an OC'd 2600K will not really bottleneck a 1080Ti at 1440p and above.

So I did this now

How long should I wait until using it? (Guessing it needs to harden?)
