Hi. My current setup is this:
i5 6500
GTX MSI 1070 8gb
MSI B150M
Ram 16gb
Corsair RM550x
SSD 850 evo

I would like find out what would give me the best performance upgrade for 1440p at 144hz. I assume it would be 1080ti? Do I have to go for i5 8600k as with 1080ti my current cpu would become bottleneck?
Thanks all 馃檪

I don't think your CPU would be too much of a bottleneck. It really can depend on the game. As for GPU, the 11XX series should be releasing somewhat soon, so I would definitely hold out for that unless you find a killer deal on a 1080ti. I have a GTX1080 for my setup and it works well, but I think if you're upgrading you might as well take a bigger leap than from a 1070 to 1080.

What fps do you get in ow with the 1070? And at what graphics quality preset?

I鈥檇 say you鈥檙e on the right track with getting a 1080 Ti (unless you can wait for the next generation as suggested above).

Your current cpu will bottleneck it, but I鈥檇 imagine that you鈥檒l still be near 144hz in ow for high (not ultra or epic) graphics quality.
