    I have decent pc parts, i5 2400, 12gb ddr3 1333mhz, 500watt evga, dq67sw motherboard, but the gpu is my bottleneck with it being a gt 610 with only 1gb ram ddr3 clocked at 600mhz and core clock at 810mhz, this system is bottlenecked with that gpu. I need to find a better one somewhere

    My motherboard is choking my gpu. I have an 1070 OC 8g and asus h310 plus. What motherboard should I upgrade to? My budget is really high and I have ordered 2080 and i9 and h115 AIO. I just need the motherboard. People where telling me to upgrade to b360 carbon I was thinking about maximus formula XI
