Next month or the one after, I'm probably going to upgrade my system. I would love to get some help about what to choose, and if there's anything that could be bottlenecking my system.
My current specs are:
GPU: R9 290 Sapphire Tri-X - https://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Version-PCI-Express-Graphics-11227-00-40G/dp/B00HJOXUKC
CPU: i5-4670k - https://ark.intel.com/products/75048/Intel-Core-i5-4670K-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3-80-GHz-

(The ram, power supply, hard drive and ssd have been purchased last year.)
My main aim was the GPU, as it's quite old. It has become quite noisy (One of the fans is making noises), and produces a lot of heat. If there's any other suggestions for parts to upgrade please let me know.
Now, I'm not sure on what card I should be aiming for. I'm currently using a single monitor (25 inch 1080p), but I've been considering getting another as it's become quite frustrating when I have to program and research. I'm not that well versed in what is best, but I did some research, and the GTX 1060 is best for 1080p, while going for 1070 or higher is more suitable for higher resolutions. Even if that's true, I was still inclined on the 1070/80 over the 1060 even tough the price jump would limit other options.
I've also been considering overclocking my CPU once I switch my AMD card. If I do try, I was thinking on purchasing a Hyper EVO 212 instead of the stock fan (As it would make more sense).
