A GTX970 is somewhere between a GTX1060 and GTX1070 (closer to the 70).

gtx980 actually sits around gtx 1060 reference so the 970 is a fair way behind the 1070 which is over 30% faster than a 1060 oc



af doesn't have much of a performance hit these days and i have never liked the image quality below 8x af

aa however can have a massive performance hit for minimal gain although it can be nice to have

some games need aa\af more than others

The 1070 is a great value for money purchase especially up to 1440p gaming


If you're looking to upgrade it's definitely a good card to look at. And we can of course recommend our 1070 G1 Gaming as well :P

shame there $696 at a store with stock when at the start of the month you could get Gigabyte Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Turbo OC 8GB GDDR5X for $652

but now its hard to find any gpu in stock that dont have a stupidly high price tag

what games do you play that are struggling for performance?


your hsf isn't the quietest but it does perform well enough for a decent oc


as mentioned the gpu is the main thing that will be holding you back and a 1070 would sure take care of that but i wouldnt be paying $700 for one when they start at $519 hell gtx 1080 can be had for $685


8g ram may start to become a limitation hitting 100% usage in a few new games at max texture detail creating a few stutters but provided you keep your os\background apps clean it shouldnt be a problem for most current  games

the single core performance of the Celeron J3455 is around that of the old athlon x2 which will make things load a little slower with a ssd than it would with the pentium but otherwise it should operate fine

its a fair bit quicker than the old e350 atom build i replace with a i3 nuc
