Hey Slow,\n\nnice Setup, but to buy a new PC for SC is a bit too early!\nAnd this 1060? Forget it, to get a nice Performance in StarCitizen you´ll will Need an 1070 or higher!\nJust wait 2 more month for the release of AMD´s VEGA, the Prices will get down similar as in past of the AMD´s 480er release ;)

Thanks franky but here's the thing the prices for gtx 1070 and 1080 are just way overpriced in my country and then include the 25%VAT and one gtx 1070 costs me my entire monthly wage, i had to spend around 1250 euros on my pc which is around 2 months of my pay, keep in mind that i live in a 3rd/2nd world ****.\nAlso i dont really have a good experience with amd cards(2 AMD cards i owned died on me even thought the temps where ok and never even OCd while nvidya cards never crapped out on me. Also i checked some SC benchmarks with gtx 1060 and SC has averave of 60 fps in arena commander and 35-50 in arccorp. Also by the time the SC comes out the new nvidya cards will probably be already out .\n\nSent from my Lenovo TAB 2 A8-50LC using Tapatalk

Of Course, the nvidia cards a way to expensive.\nBut get in mind, AMD will release VEGA soon, and this Card will be a competitor of the 1070/1080 and you will see surely a massive Price reduction, if the VEGA will get a higher Performance than the 1080!\nSo if you stay with Nvidia, you´ll just need to wait 2 month more, take the 650ti during this time and buy the GPU when AMD Vega is released!\n\nJust remember the Price-reduction of the 970´s, when the 480X release!

Hey Slow.\n\nYou say prices for some parts is expensive in your country? Do you have any family in a diff part of the world? If yes see about buying the part in that country and having posted to you as a "gift" its helps dodge VAt too at times :). I do it with my Aunt in the states all the time. Saves me a small fortune lol
