  1. Your CPU is around 7 years old now, and you're really not going to get a better CPU for that socket. So for 2k gaming, I would set up with an i5 6600, a 1060 or 970 depending on price/availability, and a new mobo.

    Hard to recommend something without a budget though.

    Minimum card to play 60fps in most games at 1440p is the GTX 1070. With your processor though, it would bottleneck a bit. It would be better if you upgraded your whole system but I wouldnt get a 1060 or a 970. Bad choices for 1440p.
