    [SOLVED] anyone else given up trying to keep up to date with PC gaming hardware?

    I'm curious how others feel about the current gen of games and whether it is still worth spending thousands of dollars on the latest GPUs and CPUs? I was up to date until the GTX600 generation.

    Bottleneck | Ryzen 1600x + GTX 1080? | SUGGESTIONS

    Will the 1080 get bottlenecked by the Ryzen? I am going to play at 1080p 144hz. I want the CPU to push as many frames as possible to the GPU. Or is a i5 7600k or even a 7700k better if I want to play mainly games? I want my build to last as long as possible on 1080p Thanks :)
