    Best graphics upgrade for Maximus VII Formula

    Hey all

    Hope this thread finds y'all well.

    Looking for advice on the best video card upgrade for my system.

    My ASUS Maximus VII Formula/4790k build from 2015 is still rockin' strong, but its GTX 670x2 (SLI) are beginning to show their age.

    Been eying a 1080 but I ask, is it really worth going for those? Hard to believe but the system is going on almost 4 years old. If for instance, a cheaper 1070 is going to be pretty much as high as one can go before it's just overkill for the mobo, I'd like to go with that option.

    Purposes: Gaming, nothing hardcore. GTA5, xPlane, whatever occasional new game might interest me, general photography.

    Look forward to the responses.

    Happy gaming

    Hi CSquared4290

    Welcome to the ROG forum !

    I was using two 680's in sli and upgraded to a 980Ti, the 980 Ti was faster by 10-15 FPS at 1440p. A 1070 is on par with the 980 Ti and Titan X maxwell.

    If you game at 1440p, a 1080 would be a nice upgrade, although your cpu may slightly hold you back.
