Wanna trade in my gtx 1070 SC for a 1080. Currently have a Ryzen 5 1600x CPU. The 1070 pairs well with it. Will I have an issue with the 1080? Also have a Supernova g2 750w gold standard PSU.
Thanks!
 
there will always be some amount of bottlenecking. ur 1600X and 1070 just has a minimal amount.
see the cpu usage while gaming and that will tell u if ur 1600X can be pushed further with the 1080.
monitoring cpu/gpu for different eye candy settings can also give u insights abt GPU/CPU performance saturation. like the cpu usage can be the same for high or ultra presets means the game is GPU dependent and can be pushed further via a better GPU and vice versa.
