My current build -
Case - Anidees ai crystal white
Motherboard - MSI Z270 Krait Gaming
CPU - Intel Core i5-7600K 3.80GHz
GPU - Asus 960gtx Turbo 4gb
RAM - Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4
PSU - EVGA SuperNova G2 750W '80 Plus Gold' Modular Power Supply
SSD - Samsung 500GB 850 EVO SSD 2.5" SATA 6Gbps 32 Layer 3D V-NAND Solid State Drive (MZ-75E500B/EU)
HD - Seagate 2tb (can't remember too much)

I have about £200 spare (can go to a max of £300) would you recommend a new Graphics card or to try and buy a used Asus 960gtx as I can't see any new ones really.

Should I wait until its abit lower in price and get the upgrade then?
You might want to wait till the 11xx serie before upgrading. They should come out in about 6 months.

I would advice against SLI-ing mid-tier GPUs.

They haven't been announced yet but, Nvidia usually release a new GPU serie every year/year and a half so, it's safe to assume that there will be new GPUs coming out soon. You might want to consider the RX580. Why do you already want a new GPU? The GTX 960 is still a pretty decent card for 1080p gaming!

I'll be honest its mainly because of my mates having better gpus than me. But if I will wait till the 11xx series update. I will see if anyone else has suggestions otherwise I'll close this thread.

Don't buy a GTX 1060, it would be a terrible 'upgrade'. Don't add a 2nd GTX 960, that would definitely be a poor move. If your GPU is still doing what you want it to, there's zero reason to upgrade. At the least, wait for AMDs 500 series and NVidia's 1100 series.
