i7 930 and X58 is a hard rig to get rid of ain't it? They just run so damned well.

I had the Xeon 3520 on X58 and just finally upgraded it.

6GB of RAM is going to be your real hitching point. I maxed my old system out with 24GB and never had an issue gaming.

Get the 1080Ti and if you have the extra $52 and some ability with a screwdriver get this:

I slapped that cooler on my Zotac 1080Tis and it dropped operating temps damn near 15°C.

Its really up to you. If I had your system, I would upgrade to the 1080Ti, the SC is a great card so no complaints there. Then next year, go for the 9600k or 9700k or w/e flavour of CPU is out at the time.

Keep in mind that theres always better stuff coming out to the market, if you wait theres always something new and improved. But you gotta get something new at some point, and the 1080ti SC is a proven product for 520? That's a great deal.
Should have specified I meant waiting till 1180 to see if I can get a cheaper or better version of the Ti for the same price range

If you can wait, it will be cheaper. But you won't have it now. You are the only one who can decide if the wait is worth it.
Its impossible to say anything about how much cheaper it will get, but the SC version is one of the better coolers. And like @Renegade5399 , you can get aftermarket blowers or watercoolers for it later if you wanna drop more temps.

Good deal on the card, but you have to keep dem temps in check.

A bad airflow case such as many miniITX due to lack of space necessitate a blower fan style to keep temps lower, as an open fan will just circulate hot air throughout the case without proper ventilation to move it out.

Your options are to either get the blower and deal with the noise, get the blower and put it on water to avoid the noise, or get a better case. Neutral air pressure in a case with a slight bias towards positive. The best way to do this is have an identical number of case fans so something like 2 intake and 2 exhaust, set the intake fans to spin in the ballpark of 100rpm faster than the exhaust fans, and you'll have good airflow throughout the case.

Yeah it doesn't help my room is like at 87 degrees in Texas, but even when it wasn't the airflow wasn't good either I think.

Yeah the price is good but I won't use the card much till prbly past September. I'm trying to talk myself into waiting till September to buy one. But its miserable trying to game on ym 290 at 4K

Absolutely hate blower noise though. I had a HD 5970 and I hated that card.

YOu think I need to buy a new case or just buy multiple fans. I don't know how much better a new case can be compared to the one I have now. Do you have recommendations?

I would rather spend the 500 bucks on new hardware like a Ryzen 5 1600/2600(with mobo ofc), 16GB DDR4, a new case and an SSD. The powersupply is still fine, the hdd's are still fine, and maybe you can find a cheap 1060 or 1070 somewhere (or even a 980ti). But that's my opinion!

My main concern is getting 40 fps on 4K. no need to buy a whole system for that I think. The 930 might be old AF but I don't see how it cant give me 40 fps with a 1080 Ti since i overclocked mine to 3.8 Ghz
