Thanks for all the suggestions guys.
After going through all of your comments I think I'll hold on for now and see how the 3000 series does, there's no point in rushing and risking it. 970 is still okay and can still definitly work on for a bit longer.
If I'm doing this then I should do it...
At the moment what I'm concerned about the most is Apex Legends I guess, and I think these should be able to handle it. But yeah would prefer the card to be future proofy.
Now I'm kinda swaying towards 2070 but most of the 2070S I see are listed on the 50k area, that's a real bump on the budget.

The monitor is pretty good but coming from an IPS panel initially I was kinda disappointed with the colors, but calibrating the monitor did make a significant difference. Now, after a couple of months of use I have to say it kinda...
Kind of a bump, I had sort of dropped the plan to get a 144hz monitor back then but now I'm thinking about it again.
I almost made my mind to get the BenQ-XL2411P
but is the model very dated? are there better options in...
I've been pretty satisfied with my current monitor till I got more competitive in a couple of online FPS games. Been hearing a lot 144hz can make a lot of difference over 60. Currently I'm on a 23 inch monitor so I don't want the next monitor to be smaller than that.
Back when I purchased my...

Ok guys, I have decided to up my budget a bit, could you guys suggest which of these motherboard should I go for.
Asus z170 Pro Gaming

My previous board was an Asus, it did well but pretty much around the end of its warranty period it died on me, and friend of mine...
