Hello,

Been away a long time....im sure i was sorely missed :laugh:

Anyway, im looking to find an upgrade GPU for a GTX1070. it doesnt need to be new, just in good working shape (newer the better) & a reasonable increase in performance. Just looking for a good deal (prefer Nvidia since its to be used with a Gsync Monitor).

EDIT: My nephews PC is beginning to act up while he is playing World of withcraft. ive ruled out just about everything software related, & have arrived at it being either the HDD i installed in the rig when i built it , or the CPU, but im leaning to the HDD. im also considering changing out his CPU as well. its a 4170 i think (dual core Ht'd i3) & his dad bought him a 4K monitor a while back, which has left that PC sorely under powered, so im tossing around the idea of changing out the HDD & CPU

looking for a HDD, 2Tb minimum, and in good shape (theyre cheap enough to buy retail, but i figured id look here 1st). FOUND
The CPU would need to be a 1150 4 cores minimum, HT'd is good but not required.

What's your budget and only looking for air cooling or water also?
Air only please.
Budget is roughly $300+ still trying to nail it down (without pissing off wife) , might even need to pay some, for seller to hold it, then drop 2nd half for them to ship, depending on price.
