    Finally got my 6700k i7/1080/16GB Ram build together and it's going well so far. Hoping this will suffice until 2019 anyway.

    Yeah, should be fine. You'd probably be OK with a 2600K.

    In my attempts to get the Oculus Rift working (it's since been RMA'd, waiting for the replacement), I basically went nuts with the updates. i7-7700k, 16 gb RAM, GTX 1080. Holy fuckballs is this thing fast. Seeing at least a 100% increase in framerate, Assetto Corsa is averaging 135fps with all the settings cranked, and Project Cars looked pretty damn brilliant. Waiting on iRacing until I get the new Oculus, which hopefully actually works.

    My favorite part is the insanely fast boot time into a fresh Windows 10 install. I swear, it's about 5 seconds after the BIOS screen goes away.

    Awesome! That's how to do an upgrade.
    Did you grab an SSD in the process or just the memory and CPU make it boot that much faster?

    Oh, I already had an SSD (half terabyte Samsung 840 Pro), so I formatted that and made that my boot/games drive. I do need to get another SSD though, half a terabyte is only so much room these days. Forza Horizon took up nearly 60 gigs. 'Course, it's also horribly broken, so I ended up uninstalling it anyway.

    The 1080 is a fuckin beast. I haven't even bothered overclocking it. See no point. I was toying with the idea of getting the new Titan, but, I thought, why. The 1080 annihilates what I'm using on it now. I can spend that extra $500 on something more responsible. Like Lego.

    I'm still on the same setup I built in summer 2014 (except the 1080). The Power supply is from circa 2005? Dunno, 750W PC Power and Cooling, it's been running virtually 24/7 for well over 10 years.

    It really is. I knew they said it was a big leap over the previous generation, but I'm used to an upgrade getting me like a 40% boost if I'm lucky. This is at least 100%.

    And with a big reduction in power usage as well. The thing is damn near silent even when I'm hitting it with a particularly nasty game.

    I went from a 680 to the 1080. It was almost comical.

    Have to say going even from a 980 to a 1080 felt like a significant boost. I can't really be subjective though as it was also part of an upgrade to i7 and 16GB ram.
