Getting on a bit but still worth an upgrade

UserBenchmarks: Game 118%, Desk 100%, Work 77%

CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K - 92%
GPU: Nvidia GTX 1080 - 144.1%
SSD: Samsung 850 Evo 500GB - 121.8%
SSD: OCZ Agility 3 120GB - 54.3%
HDD: Seagate ST2000VM003-1CT164 2TB - 73.6%
HDD: Toshiba DT01ACA300 3TB - 93.5%
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3 2400 C11 2x8GB - 76.8%
MBD: Gigabyte GA-Z97P-D3

The new GTX 2080/2080ti are coming out next month so it's maybe time for an upgrade. The Intel i7 8086k looks like the best buy for gaming so will probably go for that. This system is getting on a bit now and anyway I deserve a treat.

Don't forget the Samsung NVMe driver. It's supposed to be a lot faster than the default Microsoft version.

I have the 970 Evo 500g in my new build, it works, but not as fast as I thought it would be. I think it only has the Microsoft drivers on it. Can I just go into Devices, and on the 970, search for new drivers, would it find the Samsung one. Bit of a noob when it comes to anything like this!

8086k isn't worth it over an 8700k, they are just binned 8700ks.
