AMD Radeon RX 470 / Core i7-6700K

For the most part, the RX 470 is still capable of playing modern games, but you would have to reduce settings to sustain those higher framerates. If keeping graphics quality settings closer to ultra or high is important, there are a few options for upgrades. It appears that the RX 470 is a more capable mid-range card that can play AAA titles at 1080p with 60 frames per second. The price/performance ratio is excellent for RX 470 against the competition in budget mid-range cards. With current 4096 MB RAM, the RX 470 can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games. View Current Price List

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti / Core i7-3770K

It is worth noting that the GTX 780 TI is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the GTX 780 TI 's 6144 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. This combination between GTX 780 TI and Intel Core i7-3770K @ 3.50GHz has less than 8% bottleneck in many games and is perfect match to avoid FPS loss. Deciding whether to invest so much money in a high-end GPU like GTX 780 TI requires careful thought.
