You'll most likely need a platform upgrade (new CPU, motherboard, and RAM). What's your budget?

CPU: Intel Core i7-950 Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R CPU Cooler: NZXT HAVIK 140 RAM: Corsair Dominator DDR3-1600 (1x2GB), Crucial DDR3-1600 (2x4GB), Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3-1600 (1x4GB) GPU: ASUS GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II 2GB SSD: Samsung 860 EVO 2.5" 1TB HDDs: WD Green 3.5" 1TB, WD Blue 3.5" 1TB PSU: Corsair AX860i & CableMod ModFlex Cables Case: Fractal Design Meshify C TG (White) Fans: 2x Dynamic X2 GP-12 Monitors: LG 24GL600F, Samsung S24D390 Keyboard: Logitech G710+ Mouse: Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum Mouse Pad: Steelseries QcK Audio: Bose SoundSport In-Ear Headphones

Buy a i7-4770 for ~110 US. It'll keep up just fine with the 1070 Ti.

 

EDIT: Or a 4670k for ~100 and overclock it. 

 

Your cpu is a $65 CPU, you can't expect to pay any less for something better.

The 4790s came down in price, worth considering at the $150 price point on eBay (unless you spy a good deal)

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

The non K versions often sell for 130-140. :)  The K versions, on the other hand, are still overpriced. 

 

I only know this because I just completed a comprehensive study of ebay CPU prices and performance. :)

I would recommend an i7 4790.  It doesn’t bottleneck my 2080 ti.

You've got to be kidding. "but its really old" What a load of barnacles...

 

i7-4770, GTX1080Ti and 16GB here. No problems so far. I have no idea about the motherboard chipset because of H87 and H97 like the 4770 and 4790 but the 4770 is fine too.

DAC/AMPs:

Klipsch Heritage Headphone Amplifier

Lake People G103-S (Currently not in use)

Headphones: Klipsch Heritage HP-3 Walnut, Beyerdynamic Amiron Home, Amiron Wireless Copper, T5p.2, Tygr 300R, DT880 600ohm Manufaktur, Fidelio X2HR, Meze 99 Classics Walnut/Gold

Earphones: Airpods 2019, Sony WF1000XM3, Sony MDR-E818LP

CPU: Intel 4770, GPU: Gigabyte Aorus GTX1080Ti, Mobo: MSI Z87-G45, RAM: DDR3 16GB G.Skill, PC Case: Fractal Design R4 Black non-iglass, Monitor: BenQ GW2280.

Damn, the s SKU is historically more expensive than the other versions despite lower clocks

Yeah I skipped all the weird lettered SKUs. Just normal/K/X SKUs for my spreadsheet. (Otherwise it would have taken way too long.)
