Hit up ebay and just go from there. Here's a system I literally just built for your pricetag. Remember that the GPU can only process what the CPU sends to it so fast. When you're at 4k the GPU is really having to process a TON more than at 1080p so in general the CPU shouldn't be of much concern. With gaming it's mostly single core.

My system.

i5-7600k
32GB ddr4 PC2400 memory
512GB Toshiba NVME ssd (much faster than standard SSD)
GTX 1080ti
season 650w 80+ gold psu

I'm doing this as a mITX build in a small case. Spent $80 on the motherboard and $65 I think on the case.



Don't let your brain get too far ahead of you. At 4k or VR the GPU is going to be limited for a while. All of that above fit your budget. You could get an i7-7700k or i7-8700k and still wouldn't see any perceivable performance difference. Don't be afraid of ebay. The biggest expense for me was the GPU 1080ti which with shipping was $830.00. So they're out there.

Feb 12 online info - New Generation of Graphics cards coming out:

GRAPHICS OUTFIT Nvidia will unveil the GeForce GTX 20 series in April, according to online murmurs.

"The leak comes via German site 3D Center, which claims that the new generation of GPUs will be based on its upcoming architecture, codenamed 'Ampere'.

The new lineup is said to arrive in April, so it could be that the firm will unveil the new-generation of GPUs at its GTC technology conference in San Jose, due to take place at the end of March. If true, it will be almost exactly two years after Nvidia unveiled the GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 in Austin, Texas.
The German news site claims that TSMC has stopped production of GP102, the GPU that powers the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, meaning that current-generation GTX 1080 Ti and Titan X graphics cards would stop being produced throughout the rest of this year to make way for the unravelling of the GTX 20 series.
If the reports are confirmed come March or April, the GTX 20 series is likely to use Nvidia's new and improved VRAM technology, which uses a smaller bus than the GTX 1080 Ti thanks to the arrival of the firm's GDDR6 technology.
The upcoming Ampere architecture is rumoured to be based on Samsung's 14nm process technology after Nvidia signed an agreement with the Korean tech giant that would see the company making its new chips.
The last big GPU Nvidia unveiled was for desktop PCs and workstations that, founder and CEO Jensen Huang claimed, was "the world's most powerful GPU for the PC".

Named the Titan V, the GPU is intended not for gaming (yea, right), though, but for machine learning applications. Announced at the annual NIPS conference in December 2017, the Titan V was touted as "the world's most powerful GPU for the PC" and is designed to excel at computational processing for scientific simulation.

With 21.1 billion transistors delivering 110 teraflops of raw horsepower, it is also said to be nine times as powerful as its predecessor, and way more energy efficient thanks to being based on Nvidia's Volta GPU architecture."

"9 times as powerful as before"! Is that mean 9 times the fps? It's always better on paper.

Yeah, that made me laugh too.

I have never seen a 9x increase anywhere but SSD over HDD. It's hard to believe in this statement.

9x as expensive, well, that does fit--- USED!!!-- LoL
