My current build that I use daily is here
I used it for 1080p gaming but recently got a 1440p 144Hz monitor, and surprisingly my r9 380 seems to handle 1440p very well at medium settings (I only play DayZ and AOE2 DE, so nothing too demanding). It does get a bit hot though.
I have been getting the urge to just do a full upgrade (MOBO, CPU and GPU) but after some research I found that to keep cost down whilst having modern hardware, I could just spend around £200 on a 1660 Super, put it in this system and have a very good 1440p gaming experience? I don't believe my i5-6500 will be too much of a botteleneck because at 1440p games are mostly GPU bound.
I'd like to know if you feel like I am right in thinking this or would you recommend a more comprehensive upgrade?
