NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 / Core i7-6700K

At 1440p, GTX 1060 can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is clear that the GTX 1060 is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. The price/performance ratio is excellent for GTX 1060 against the competition in budget mid-range cards. In terms of memory, the GTX 1060 's 6144 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. 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.
