    My current GPU is an Asus GTX 1060 6gb dual OC and i'm wanting some advice on what GPU to upgrade to within a £500 budget that could run 144hz 1440p on my Acer Predator XB271HUA. I've been looking at the Zotac GTX 1080 ti mini and a second hand Asus ROG Strix 1080 on Ebay for £350.

    If you are considering 1080ti's I hope you have a quality 650w or higher psu. The card alone can draw up to 300w, even higher when overclocked.
