    Titan: Kickass, very,very expensive
    1080 kickass: very expensive $1000-$1150
    1070 good performance, moderately expensive $650-$800
    1060 reasonable performance, affordable $320-$470

    Do you want to future proof your purchase? Upgrade the card now & your PC and/ or your display later? or just play BF1now?

    CRIKEY!! if you're getting bf1 you will want a new monitor to go with the new gpu:shock:;)

    you have a reasonably good base there, the only things that might need upgrading, IMO, would be the power supply if its more than 5 yrs old,
    maybe get another 8gb of RAM, or a newer kit of 16gb, do you know what motherboard you have?
    what windows are you running? 7/8/10? 64bit?

    heres some choices of gtx 1060's

    you could go for the 1050Ti but IMO that'd be the absolute minimum you'd want for bf1

    You got a 1080p 120Hz monitor Gav? If yes, then definitely save your money for a 1070, you will get awesome performance. If you don't have a 120Hz, might as well get a 1060 and you tweak it to get 60FPS.
