Benchmarks - 1440p
My primary focus of this GPU and storage upgrade battle is for the fight at 1080p, but I've included some results at 1440p.
Even at 2560x1440, the older GTX 760 handles Overwatch at 81FPS average with the HDD, while jumping to 86FPS with the SSD. But the upgrade to the GTX 1060 is huge for Overwatch, hitting 91FPS average on the HDD, and 108FPS on the SSD.
Adjusting some in-game visual settings would let GTX 1060 + SSD owners hit 120-144FPS average, perfect for 1440p 120/144Hz displays. This is just a tease of what's to come, as the results get better - we'll discuss that on the next page.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is the latest game in the Deus Ex franchise, ready for DX12 with Eidos Montreal and Nixxes using the latest Dawn Engine. Mankind Divided is one of the better-looking games of 2016, that's for sure.
By now, who hasn't heard of the Grand Theft Auto franchise? GTA V is a popular game, powered by the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (RAGE) made in-house by Rockstar.

Blizzard created one of the best team-based first-person shooters with Overwatch, which looks great and runs ridiculously smooth, even on lower-end hardware.

Battlefield 1 is the latest and greatest first-person shooter from EA DICE, powered by the incredibly beautiful and high-end Frostbite engine. It has DX11 and DX12 support, so we test both - it's one of the games we run in real-time 64-player multiplayer matches.
