      My advice is to simply upgrade your GPU and OC your CPU....

      Your mobo, CPU and RAM are fine.... I have an older CPU than you do (3770k) and managed to OC it from 3.5 to 4.5mhz stable. I added a nVidia 1080 and I'm now getting 100fps average in BF1 on ultra.

      I'll look to upgrade my MoBo, CPU and RAM when it starts to struggle to run games.

      whoops..... oh well!

      I might use that line to justify purchasing a new Mobo, CPU and RAM!

      Thanks!

      Thats a fair call bud. Myself i just cant justify spending a grand on a card aha

      I'm gonna wait for the 1080Ti before I upgrade anything else. Maybe even watercool my machine before that.
