Next PC you build I recommend dropping $1000+ on. You should be good until next year, give GPU and RAM prices time to drop and see what new tech is out. Right now $1000 will get you a 8700K/1070 build easily.

I talked myself out of an upgrade (I don't need one though). Both those are going for more than the MSRPs for them.

I'm still tempted to snag a 1080... but waiting makes more sense unless GPU prices go up and never come down in the future.

GPU prices will eventually go down once the crypto currency bellys up again. RAM on the other hand ya have to just bite the bullet on that one.
