    Hi all,
    Not sure if this is the right location to ask, but I have a quick question about the available Razer Core models (V2/X) and their compatible graphics cards.

    I have a Late 2016 Razer Blade - Full HD (GTX1060). I love it to death, but it’s starting to show it’s age in the upcoming generation of games.
    I use a 144hz monitor, but I’m dipping below 50 fps for the following titles:
    - PUBG
    - Hunt Showdown
    - Squad
    - Escape From Tarkov
    - Rust
    - Resident Evil 7

    I realize that a few of these games are more cpu intensive, but I’m wondering which Core Model/GPU combination would give me the best improvement for my current Blade. So far the differences in ports don’t really mater to me, just looking for the best performance.

    I would love some recommendations if anyone has any?

    Thanks in advance

    Does your laptop have the 6700HQ? Also, is it just a 1080p 144Hz display?

    If so, I would go with something like a 1070 or 1070ti (although keep your eyes out, a 1080 is a little bit more then a 1070Ti and you can get some really good deals if they go on sale), if it is a 1080p screen I find that something like a 1080ti would be too much.

    Yes and yes. The monitor also has gsync so I'm assuming I'd want to lean towards Nvidia. Thanks for the suggestions.
