I build this pc more than 3 years ago and still going well today.... you cant compare this with the new build of today but i love my little pc and runs todays games not to bad at 1440p. I am working on a new build with a 1080 ti lightning from msi and is on a budget of around 1600$ so i need help with choosing parts and any comments are welcome:) I only need the same parts as i showed in this build as i already have monitor and everything els

The gtx 970's where beasts back 4 years ago and back then i had a monster off a pc,, but you can see they are getting old but still golden oldies:D . They served me very well but its time to let this pc rest for now as i build a am going to build a new pc.

Old girl still rocks: Dying light 1440p ultra 78-115 fps avg Doom 2016 1440p ultra 59-98 fps avg Project cars 2 1080p ultra 55-88 fps avg Far cry primal 1440p ultra 67-90 fps avg so its still going strong:)

I already bought my new case aswell and to be honest i am quite sad because its the corsair rx 460 rgb and i heard the case sucks at cable management:( and i bought a corsair rm 1000x gold psu aswell.

All thats left now is the mobo,, cpu,, ram,, cpu cooler and gpu:D

I dont know if i should buy now or wait for volta as i heard they will release somewhere in early 2018..... i dont want to buy now and be dissapointed.

Let me know what you guys think and please i know this is not a very powerfull pc but its 4 years old and i saved 4 years to build my new pc but i only thought i post her because she gave me and my gf lots off gaming fun:D

Well that is what I use as a GPU, and still kicks PUBG at 90-100FPS. (though on a I7-4790K) ps: the price for your I5 is overpriced... they can be had for i5-4690K - 269$ at https://www.cpumedics.com/i5-4690k.html?cmp=googleproducts&kw=i5-4690k?171222&_vsrefdom=adwords&gclid=Cj0KCQiAg4jSBRCsARIsAB9ooatXUWF3DJfj3ItxVBtA06dfTzRK6vRKeYwktlOi0NSxXLGMgu3_-IYaAivCEALw_wcB
