Hello guys! So I am interested in acquiring a new gaming pc as my one got kind of old and my budget isn't that high. Although my budget isn't that high , I'd still like a GTX 1070 in my rig but I'm not sure how much more I'd be needed extra for one. I was thinking of getting the GPU from the United States and the rest of the parts from the UK, because I found the GTX 1070 to be cheaper with around 100 gbp than in the UK ($409 = £307, and yeah I know there will a bit of an extra cost for shipping, but only around $4 or something if I read correctly).
So, my available budget is around £750 +/- ; and I would be using this PC for gaming at 1080p or less, and browsing mainly as I'm still a student. I do not need any peripherals, other than a 1080p monitor, but even then I think I won't be able to get the 1070 because the price would rise by like £100 more. Then my question is, if I'm gaming at 1080p, is the 1070 going to make that big of a difference, compared to the 1060? Or should I get a monitor + a 1060 as my current monitor has the maximum resolution of 1440x900?
Anyway, thank you very much for reading this, I hope it isn't that confusing. If it is don't hesitate to ask me questions! I'm waiting for your feedback and thank you once again!
NOTE: I can also wait 1/2 months more, until around Black Friday or so, because I know right now it's a difficult time to buy a new GPU due to the fact prices are all over the place.
