Any requests for settings, etc? I'll be using a more "basic" GTX 1060 for this one since there has been some complaints about the use of a TITAN XP in the reviews.

Considering an 8700K + mobo + memory will likely put you back (~$700) $360+$150+$150 I was thinking of adding in the 2600K + GTX 1080 Ti as a comparison that looks at JUST upgrading the GPU for less money.
This would be the most interesting to me personally. Moving into a new (and at this time expensive) memory format along with motherboard+processor is always a hurdle for folks who prefer to do incremental upgrades. Last time I was in this situation I ended up with an asrock frankenboard that allowed me to continue using my old memory with a new C2D processor....
