    It could well be that, having upgraded your GPU, it is your CPU that is now the performance bottleneck. I too have an i7 6700K and have seen, on some complex routes / sessions, my GTX 1080 only being 60% utilised at times while the fps is around 25 - 30.

    The spending never stops .

    Well, a CPU / motherboard update means a new PC - no!!! (well, maybe in five years time...)

    Interesting as my GTX1080TI will use 90 to 100% on full settings with my i7 6700K, doesn't show any signs of bottlenecking.

    It really depends on the route / session. Routes containing lots of procedural track (e.g. Paddington-Westbury) seem to give my cpu a good hammering.
