Hey all, just wondering what sort of upgrades I should be looking at to be playing the high end games coming out recently. My current specs are;

Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz
Video Card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti
Memory 8.2 GB
RAM. 1TB Standard + 64GB SSD

I'm thinking of getting a GTX 970 or 80 but not sure if my other components will bottleneck it.

Cheers.

You should be fine as far as I can see, although it's worth noting that with The Witcher 3 that CPU is the minimum requirement so might bottleneck it slightly there, although in GTA you should be fine.

Overclock the CPU if a game you want to play requires a bit more CPU power. It's not complicated, and can just require a click of a button to bring it up to 4.2GHz, 4.6GHz etc. depending on the computer.
