    Is it possible to send you guys my lappy to do the upgrade? Like up to 1070 include modded BIOS and 1440 screen with 5ms and 120Hz.

    Do yourself a favour, price it up first

    Most of the parts (no top case for example expect $150-$200) you will find here:
    http://www.eurocom.com/ec/upgradepricelist(2,435)

    Or base it on the rumoured $1700USD kit price. Then add the CPU (8700K or whybother, $370) and the GPU ($817). And your screen, usually $300-400 through a reseller ($100-150 direct), and only $158 at Eurocom for the high bandwidth eDP cable (much much cheaper elsewhere!). And Eurocom's $195 mail in upgrade fee unless that's included in the kit price.

    >>$3000 USD. About where many resellers price a single GTX1080 P870TM1 (with warranty) at. And from which you can deduct the sale of your complete P870DM

    Frankly it's less of an "upgrade" and more like "swap your RAM and storage into a P870TM1 barebones and buy a new CPU and new GPU/s"

    edit: funny, here's a price for a P870TM1 barebone, including a 1070 GPU and 1440p120Hz screen... http://rjtech.com/shop/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=30585

    Exactly a bare bones like that could make a lot of sense if you really want to go that route.

    All of the above parts listed by Eurocom can be had for < $1200 through RJTech (even after their "end user" markup pricing)

    how well does your 1080 SLI Handle that 4K Screen? Do you think 1070 SLI is enough for 4K?

    In games that scale 1080 sli does pretty well at 4k. The desktop benchmarks out there will guide you pretty well too.

    It's going to vary depending on the title.
