Now I know you say "no budget" but what's your absolute max? Because some people here will start throwing random crap when you say no cap/limit

What model of PSU?

 

Graphics card first, so RX 570 or RX 580 or GTX 1060 6GB. Used option can be a GTX 980.

 

Also a bit bottleneck isn't a bad thing, so if you can a GTX 1070 ti or RX Vega 56 is a better option. Just use this graphics card for longer periods of time

id probably throw an RX580 at it and be happy, or a used GTX 980TI but the latter only being a good option if you want to also step up the CPU in the near-ish future to one of the 3rd gen I7s. That PSU could also use a replacement probably unless its a really good unit

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

The 1070 ti can also be found used at great prices.

In search of the future, new tech, and exploring the universe! All under the cover of anonymity!
