Hi guys, I'm running a i7-4770 with a gtx970 and 16GB ram. I don't have the money to buy a new machine nor I can upgrade the CPU (it's a dell xps 8700). Only part I can change is the GPU. Do you think is it worth it, let's say buy a gtx1080 8gb ram? I'm using p3d v4.5 and x-plane 11....

I have a similar processor (overclocked) and did the upgrade from GTX970 to GTX1080 awhile back. I am primarily using P3Dv4 in all its upgrades. 

My experience was noticeably higher FPS but not double or anything like that. What was significant was increased smoothness and I was able to turn up some of the visual settings. Things like increasing the texture size and moving the various light effects sliders to the right made the sim look better. 

Overall it was a good investment for me.
