Are you plugged into the GPU because if you display is plugged into the motherboard it will run of CPU graphics and cause high usage

Generally speaking, you want a GPU bottleneck - that's how most people systems just tend to be, and that results in a smoother experience; CPU bottlenecks tend to cause very erratic frame times and thus stutter

wut? What do you mean? Perfomrance wise?

Yeah. Performance wise the card is extremely old but I wouldn't expect a bottleneck, the age of both matches both. You really should upgrade everything.

570 is like a 950-960 now a days

Not quite, it's more like a 750ti - 950.  The 560ti is about even with a 750ti except with less vRAM and more cores (I've owned both cards) - in gaming scenarios it comes out about even.

 

I'd say Drive can be a pretty CPU intensive game with a lot going on, but the cpu and gpu are pretty even in this case.

its debatable if the GPU is overclocked I'd say 

I couldn't find any 570 benchmarks to back it up

Skylake imo

the price gap has set in, its not a very large one anymore

If you want to do a sort of incremental upgrade and salvage some parts like the RAM, Haswell would be a more economical upgrade.  Skylake if you're going to build entirely new/sell your current PC.

You're really not going to be blown away by that upgrade.

 

Your current processor is still fairly capable.

Hard to say from this side of the screen.

 

You're running 2 monitors? What's your GPU vram usage?

Well z170 has XMP available, so if you wish to have higher then 2333mhz frequency ddr4 RAM, you'd need a z170 board. Don't quote me on that do.
