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 TITAN / Core i7-3770K

In terms of cost, pricing clearly is a genuine issue here and the price of GTX TITAN is simply ridiculous. At 1440p, GTX TITAN can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is worth noting that the GTX TITAN is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the GTX TITAN 's 6144 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. This combination between GTX TITAN and Intel Core i7-3770K @ 3.50GHz has less than 8% bottleneck in many games and is perfect match to avoid FPS loss. This combination between GTX TITAN and Intel Core i7-3770K @ 3.50GHz is a perfect match to avoid FPS loss. View Current Price List
