NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 / 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 .

AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 / i7-7700K

It is worth noting that the RX Vega 64 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the RX Vega 64 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. It is important to know that RX Vega 64 's max load temperature is very high and might require custom cooling solutions. In short the performance is exceptional, there's no question that this is one of the most powerful single GPU out there in 2017 .
