Hey guys,

I'm looking forward to upgrade my Pc.

This is my current Setup:

Asus Z170-A Mainboard 1151
i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz with Dark Rock Pro 4
Corsair 16GB RAM
Nvidia GTX 1070
1TB HDD und 250 SSD (NoM2) both are up to 90% full so I will also need a new SSD. Thought about a M2 SSD.
I have a big be quiet case, just as PSU but I will change that to modular.

My budget is about 1500€/$
I dont care about the brands
Maybe someone has the joy to help me. I'd be glad! :)

I can't suggest a high end x570 motherboard, a mid to entry level would e a butter use of the budget. Dropping to a $200-ish mobo might make room for a 2080S or just pocket the savings.

Otherwise I like Flayed's build.

The X570 boards are expensive as supposedly the PCI-E gen 4 support adds roughly 100 to the cost of the board. There are plenty of motherboard reviews around. The MSI Unify board is the cheapest one MSI sell with a very good VRM design. The Asus TUF also has decent VRMs and is more budget friendly. You can also go for B450 Tomahawk MAX which is decent but basic.
