I heard you don't wait for anything, just build immediatly. I too didn't want to wait for the Vega cards so I got the 1080 (non TI) good thing too since I play at 1440p 60-100fps max settings.

GTX 950

It still meets my needs almost perfectly.

Intel Iris 5100

I chose it because I was moving to Japan and my options were either buying a craptop or taking my parents' old MBP. For general use it was an obvious choice, but it did mean giving up PC gaming almost entirely.

If you need something really portable maybe go for an Alienware alpha? Even the i3 model would be better than integrated graphics.

RX 570, will not be buying another GPU anytime soon, I didn't really need to upgrade from the 470 but my friend was really hurting for a GPU, so I sold it to him for cheap and got the 570.

I still have a 970, I can't justify getting a better card yet especially considering only Warhammer would see notable improvements of the games I play.
Geforce GTX whatever, i7 something or rather, some sticks of ram, an SSD and a Hard Drive with stuff on it.

1080ti

Last year I was using 2x 7850s in crossfire. Was trying to wait for Vega but at that point I was just frustrated with waiting and got a Rx480 Sapphire Nitro. Which was a great card. Not top tier by any means but really was a step up. And I got it on a sale at like ~280 USD I think it was.

I was getting by on that for a good few solid months. But then Ethereum went f***ing crazy and eventually I just couldn't ignore that my GPU was in such high demand. Ended up selling it on ebay for about ~400 USD. And because I never had any anticipation that I would be selling my GPU for a profit after such a small about of time, I splurged for the 1080ti. Party because it was the best performer on the market, party because it was one of the cards where it's price was NOT affected by mining hardware hoarders.

Why I choose it? Cuz I choose the best whenever I make a new build.

RX 480 8GB

I wanted something under $200 to max out on 1080p above 30-40fps. I'm pleasantly surprised with it, though I need to upgrade kinda soon.
Since only from below can one better see the heights.
