@dihartnell I'm interested in this approach, might be able to get a decent enough vid card upgrade on the cheap and the OC shouldn't be a problem. do you recommend a specific source for acquiring second hand video cards? I have always purchased my components new.
@Dynamic If I go 1070 the price jumps up, and out of the realm of what I would like to pay if I run with only upgrading the video card. I am pretty much prepping to get a complete new build... this will just be a hold over until then.
[EDIT: I was able to find an EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti SSC GAMING, 04G-P4-6255-RX, 4GB GDDR5, ACX 3.0 for $130 :: It's lower performance than the GTX 1060, but the price seems decent, and feedback?]
