I want to buy a 1080 gtx, but since i have a limited amount of money, it seems i will only get a 1070, so i am asking if anyone knows any good "minimum" setup of intel cpu and motherboard that will be cheap, and wont be a problem for a future 1070.Also please if you could recommend me a cheap pair of 8x2 gb of ram.Thank you all.

So you need a CPU / motherboard / RAM ? what is your budget?

What are your current PC components, including your power supply's manufacturer and model number?
