MY current specs:
GTX 780 gpu, i5 3750k @3,4gHz cpu, 730W psu, 16gb ddr3 ram, some midrange mobo(dont remember the brand or model), 128gb ssd + 2tb hdd...The monitor is Acer Predator 1080p 144hz which will not be replaced anytime soon.
The obvious point of upgrading is for gaming since my current gpu is showing its age (I can't anylonger max modern games and retain a stable fps...latest proof is Doom & Tomb Raider). The goal is to be able to play upcoming games such as No man's sky, Deus Ex and Battlefield 1 in 1080p resolution with high fps, and perhaps get one of the VR HMD come winter.
I was initially planning on replacing my gpu with a Evega gtx 1080 but I'm worried about my cpu bottlenecking. If I need to upgrade the cpu I might aswell buy a new PC (since I'll have to buy a new mobo and ram aswell).
I need some advice from you guys. The money is alwyas a issue so I'd prefer to just upgrade the gpu but if its the suboptimal route I might get a new PC alltogether and put on hold other luxuries such as VR and whatnot.
