Hello Everyone :) Actually I just bought a Gigabyte GTX 1080 WindForce at a very cheap price. So now i'm looking forward to buy a complete PC and i am on a low budget (for now)...
So i was thinking to buy an i7 3770k and will OC it to stable 4.8GHz. It will be an open-air build and i have a Cooler Master Hyper 212 LED Turbo with Artic MX-4. Basically i'll be gaming (casual storyline games with graphics mods not E-Sports) on 1080p@60hz 24" inch LED and the main reason to buy a GTX 1080 was to crank the Graphics Settings as high as possible on 1080p resolution and therefore i want my GTX 1080 to perform at it's full potential....The rest of the build will be consisting of 16GB ram, 550W PSU and 1TB HDD. I hope you guys can understand what i'm asking.... :) If you need anything else, I'm here :) Thanks in advance <3

I'd highly recommend that you invest on a concurrent platform. For something like a GTX1080, I'd suggest at least a 7th Gen Intel i5/i7 K suffix processor or above. If you're looking at AMD's end, get the Ryzen 5 2600 at the very least.

Make and model of the PSU and it's age?

Hey Brother... :)

Actually for now because of my low budget i can't buy a Ryzen or a 7th Gen i-series CPU... So can you please tell me that i7-3770k OC to 4.8GHz won't be enough for my GPU ? :(
