So we have an i5 7500 ( 4c/4t. Boost 3.8 )
How much of a bottleneck do you think we would get below the 60fps mark @ 1080p ( for now! ) if we paired it with a gtx1080?
One piece at a time i am helping someone upgrade for 1440p ( in the end ) ( no rush ) they have the i5 already and we were gonna do the gpu then throw in a 7700 then finally the screen ( may take months ) so that's why I am wondering, ( again, already have cpu/mobo ) I know the 1070ti would be just fine but 1080's are about the same $ so i thought id ask.
Games are modern AAA titles and high/ultra settings @ 60fps @1080p would be the desired result for now. ...Or, would that result in a lot of games struggling due to the bottleneck? "OR.. would the bottleneck be so far over 60 they'll probably never notice it?
