    from a R9 280X to MSI 1060 6gb....wow!

    Just put in the MSI GTX 1060 6gb gaming edition and what an improvement in FPS along with the 144hz, 1ms response. Ran bottleneck test and now my FX-6200 cpu is the bottle neck but building a new Intel I5 7600K system. Thanks T3 for the monitor advice, greatly appreciated! Playing BF3 I was averaging 130 FPS, on PUBG I was averaging around 40-60 but Im thinking switching to the Intel I5 build may improve this a bit based on the bottleneck data, but that is only a guess.

    I have an R9 390 8GB gfx, paired with an FX-8500. I would only upgrade to Ryzen if I was gonna do one, but I have no need. I'd rather enjoy gameplay rather than graphics ;)

    Its made a huge difference in game play. A lot better playing PUBG now but my FPS are still not high enough. I know its not optimized yet but it will be eventually....maybe. I thought about just upgrading to a better FX processor but upon doing research, I would not gain much.
