I mean its not bad bad but its still low for today's standards anyway a 980 would probably do it no need to get a 1080.

Not quite sure how he has an i7-6700k. The HD8470D is not a dGPU. It's the iGPU on an AMD A6-6400K APU. So there's no way it's paired with an i7 lol, and it's not even compatible with DDR4 RAM. In fact, the i7-6700k's iGPU would out-perform the HD8470D. So, with an old, low end A6 APU, a GTX 1080 would be an absolutely ridiculous purchase.
