i7-4771 + RX 480 (or maybe even 470...)

I can afford a high end GPU, but I won't buy one, at least in this decade. I enjoy gaming, but not that much. So I'm happy with my HD 7850 pushing a 1080 monitor.

The RX 480 (or even the RX 470) will be quite a step ahead and - guess what? - still in the midrange realm.
