Is anyone pairing an older CPU to their newly purchased 1070 or 1080 GTX than in my case? (Q9550 from 2010) My system was built in 2007 and the motherboard is just as old. I started out with the Nvidia 8800 for 4 years before jumping over to the 5850 for 3 years. I used the R9 280 for 2 years and it was a big jump over the 5850, but it is currently being switched out right now for the 1070 GTX. I'm sure plenty of people will say I'm being limited by my CPU. But if doubles my gaming fps, why not!
