Hello friends,

As we all know: Pascal is just around the corner. Time to upgrade, or is it?

Current setup:
amd fx8320 @ 4.82ghz
8gb ddr3L @ 2133 c8
Sapphire r9 290 tri-x

Both cpu and gpu are cooled by proper custom loop.

What would be better? Get a gtx 1070/1080 or get a 6600k/6700k?

Want max settings gaming at 1080p

Alright.

It's still hard to find proper info on the subject. I know, some games are more cpu limited (GTA V for example, and DayZ big time). These will benefit greatly from me moving to either 6700k or 4790k.
But others. I do get some fps drops in The Devision. Not sure if keeping my r9 290 and grabbing a nice 6700k upgrade will give me a large boost in performance in games.

Hmm...
