NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti / Core i7-7700K

It is clear that the GTX 1070 TI is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. In terms of memory, the GTX 1070 TI 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. In short the performance is exceptional, there's no question that this is one of the most powerful single GPU out there in 2017 . amzn_assoc_placement = "adunit0"; amzn_assoc_search_bar = "false"; amzn_assoc_tracking_id = "alexdwilsons-20"; amzn_assoc_ad_mode = "search"; amzn_assoc_ad_type = "smart"; amzn_assoc_marketplace = "amazon"; amzn_assoc_region = "US"; amzn_assoc_title = "Best NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Offers"; amzn_assoc_default_search_phrase = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti"; amzn_assoc_default_category = "Electronics"; amzn_assoc_linkid = "315127406b2046a2d339d6502b652881"; amzn_assoc_design = "in_content"; amzn_assoc_default_browse_node = "172282";

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 / Core i7-6700K

With some tuning, the GTX 1080 makes the most sense for gamers with 4K monitors. Though serious gamers hardly play at 4k. In terms of memory, the GTX 1080 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. In short the performance is exceptional, there's no question that this is one of the most powerful single GPU out there in 2016 .
