I waited on Zen 3 but didn't enough of a performance jump to justify a new mobo + CPU so I went with a custom D5 / HWLabs loop so I can hopefully wait a bit longer.

Overall my CPU can still handle most games quite well, there are a few CPU intensive games that do cause me to bottleneck a bit such as The Division 2 and Far Cry 5. GTA V and Assassin's Creed also seem to show some bottlenecks for others with a 6700K.

Overall I'm still happy with my performance and an waiting until 2021/2022 if I can to see AMD and Intel's new chips and hopefully DDR5 if we're lucky. I wouldn't bother upgrading unless you're going to a 9900K or 3900X.
I guess I will wait, ty

If you must, update your GPU. CPU with OC is more than fine still. For 1080p it's more than fine.

Seems off. I play 2560x1440 now on my i7-4790k/GTX 980 and still mostly Ultra and High settings depending on what games, but admittedly I don't really play modern AAA titles. Since you're at 1080 and a Ti, seems you should be doing better than me in that regard.

Really the only game I could see possibly forcing me to upgrade is Cyberpunk 2077 when it comes out. But I'll wait and see.

Overclock that CPU. Overclock your rams (these do a HUGE help in minimum framerates) you don't need to upgrade.
