As outlined above, I am unsure what's the difference in performance between 1060 6GB graphics card and a 1070 8GB card. I mean the latter sounds better, but is it really worth the extra £££? . I am unsure whether Skylake processors DO REALLY give a good boost to performance like the articles say. I don't know whether AMD R9 is actually better than 1060. And so forth. So it's a real tough choice.
I have a budget in mind of approximately £1,000 for a gaming rig. Ideally, I'd like to settle for the below option because it's so much cheaper and I can get a really kick **** monitor for £400, but it doesn't seem "future proof" and will I be able to max out Battlefield 1 playing at 1440p at 60-80 fps? What do I need to do that?
I would really appreciate some advice, suggestions, links to pre-built rigs etc. I do wish to just buy and not have to put one together myself, but if you know where it works out cheaper - please let me know. I'd love to switch to PC gaming prior to release, but I doubt I'll be able to. I will be getting a 4K monitor so I wouldn't have to upgrade anytime soon, so I was looking to allocate £300,-400 for that. So the above option looks great because I can fit it into £1100, but I am willing to spend up to £1000 on the rig itself if someone can please build a strong case and explain the difference in performance between something like the above set up and something higher.
Thanks a lot guys, I really appreciate it.
P.S. I've got general knowledge and this seemed like the best value for money. I mean an 8GB 1070 !
Or for the sake of £100, is this a better option than any of the above? YOur options and links are super welcome too !
