Hey peeps,

This is a very specific request because literally the only GPU intensive game I play is Ark Survival Evolved :p

Would like to nail 60fps with at least medium on all settings at 1440p. My 1060 does its best, but mostly has to be on low and gets 40-50fps, and I tire of potato quality.

Also realising that my PSU will be out of its 5 year warranty in September; any suggestions on a PSU for GPU as above with an 8700k @ 5ghz? Modular preferred.

(Is it long until next gen nvidias? I can wait if it's a few months away...)

My GTX1080 at qHD with an IB Core i7 cannot hit constant 60FPS on highish settings in ARK - it should be around 60% faster than a GTX1060 IIRC.

Well that's disappointing :( I was kinda hoping to get away with a 1070Ti... maybe I'll sit on it until the 11xx series.

Ark is one of the poorest games ever made in term of optimisation, online FPS is terrible, it’s a mess. Playing offline even my old r9-290 plays it 60fps on high, online however, that’s a completely different story. Even my mates 1080ti doesn’t hold 60fps on epic, running through the jungle and near a large base he sees drops into the 30’s

God awful game
