This depends on your budget and refresh rate/resolution you want. If you’re just playing at 1080p 60Hz then I’d get a 1060 or RX 580. If you’re playing at 4K then I’d get a 2080 Ti. One is $270, one is $1250

It pairs fine with about anything.  What does the rest of your system look like?

 

What resolution and fresh rate are you planning to run?

Why would anyone play at 1080p 60hz with an i5 8600k?

Because CPU is not only for gaming, if he want to play a 1080p 60Hz then a GTX 1060 6GB is good enough and don't need to spend a fortune in a GTX 1080, the processor can handle anything else he plan to use.

depends on the resolution and refresh rate.

 

if it's 1080p/120 then go with 1070 ti/rtx 2070

1440/120 4k/60=1080 ti/2080

4k/98+ 2080 ti.

 

the 8600k itself will bottleneck in same games at 98+ due to lack of HT

You’d be surprised, if that’s a serious question.

I’d say a little closer to

1080p144Hz/1440p60Hz 1070

1440p144Hz 1080/Ti/2070/2080 depending on games

4k60Hz 2080/2080 Ti

 

The 1070 Ti is just a tad under a 1080 so it’s w/e
