AMD Radeon RX 470 / 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. With current 4096 MB RAM, the RX 470 can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti / i7-3770K

It is worth noting that the GTX 780 Ti is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. 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. This combination between GTX 780 Ti and Intel Core i7-3770K @ 3.50GHz is a perfect match to avoid FPS loss. With current 3072 MB RAM, the GTX 780 Ti can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.
