I am literally in the same boat. I'm about to order a 2060 just because the price appeals to me for playing world of warships at 120fps....
I read your comment wrong. You were correct. I think im just going to order the 2060 and take my chances at custom's :)
but its not 579.. plus 35$ shipping, then 30% exchange rate plus 13% tax.. That is $900 Canadian.
I dont really see the advantage outside of just spending money. Your gains will not be that much larger at 1080, these cards are meant to shin way beyond 1080. If you really want more performance, try a 144hz monitor.
Only 1080P? or are you going into 1440/4K?
What games are you playing/Want to play? Are you getting poor frames?
Huge Price drop in the i5 6600k today $60+, is the 7600k really worth it now?
I did update the list, if you guys could recommend a good PCI SSD, I truly don't know anything about that tech.
Correct, I posted the wrong link, Thanks to both of you, I did some quick reading and from what I saw it was just a quick bios update to get the skylake to work on a z170 board. I do agree that I should get a z270, but again the reading I did said it wasn't a life or death thing. I am open to ideas since you both seem to know your way around this. Major problem is, im in Canada and not everything is offered on these sites.
Secondly, I did not know that about the m.2 slot, thought the m.2 was only pci-e. I have a 640 ssd currently.
Last pc I built was a bloomfield i7 950, I am way out of the loop now. lol
Thanks for the quick answer, saving money really isn't my issue. I want a good/soild mother board. what about this? its in the same price range as the M5. https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130974&cm_re=z270-_-13-130-974-_-Product
