I have an Aurora R7 and am unable to enable turbo boost for my CPU in BIOS, It says disabled and is grayed out. I know my processor model allows it but I think my psu cannot handle it but am unsure.
Specs:
CPU: Intel I5-8400 6 core 2.8 Ghz
MOBO: mostly sure its a Intel Z370
PSU: EVGA 460W
RAM: 8GB (ordered more, on the way)
GPU: Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080

I know the 1080 is excessive but I originally ordered a 1070 TI and next thing i know i turn on my PC to a GTX 1080 yay for me, but im not sure if its taking too much power and i would need to upgrade my PSU, CPU, or both.
Also i want to know if i would need a new processor to keep up with AAA games coming out within the next year (I don't plan to play anything in 4K but close to max graphics is nice :) ). Thank you for the read guys and the answers.
