Hello everyone.

I have a 6600K CPU @ 4.4 Ghz that works very well, a Z170 motherboard and a GTX 1080 Ti.

I use the PC mainly for 1080p/2K/4K gaming or VR with Oculus Rift.

I ask you if it makes sense to upgrade CPU (e.g. an i7 7700K) or CPU and Mobo.
I have no preferences between AMD or Intel.

Thanks a lot :)

The 7700k won´t get you a noticable boost for gaming

replacing only mobo and CPU: the 1080TI would bottleneck a bit if you would get a high performance kit.

If replacing the base (eventually the RAM as well) and the GPU, then you would feel a real boost

depends all on your budget. Wouldn´t upgrade for now

So you think I need to upgrade my GPU too to see a real boost?
I thought a GTX 1080 TI was a good card.
