I presently have a I7 4770k (WC Corsair H100i), Asus Maximus VI Formula board and 16gb of G-Skill Trident X. I just changed my SLI setup (2 x Asus GTX770 DCUII water cooled) for a GTX 1070 Founders edition .
This is my gaming rig, thing is, I did see a big up with the GTX1070 but I think I am bottle necked ...AKA old gear. You think I should upgrade to something more decent ?
I'm looking at the Intel I7 6700K, Asus Maximus VIII Hero and some G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series (32gb) .
Intel I9 12900K - Asus ROG Maximus Z690 HERO - G-Skill TridentZ RGB 32Gb DDR5 @ 6400Mhz - Lian Li 360 AIO - Asus ROG Strix RTX 3080 - WD Black SN850 2TB NVME - EVGA 1300G PSU -

how much of an advantage would be seen from those upgrades you pointed out m.2 and the ddr4. I ask because i'm running same set up as OP but I just picked up a 1080 strix. I planned on upgrading to newer build but didn't notice any kind of issues running the 4770k but i've only tried out acouple of games.
