Right now it's very bad time to upgrade at that price range. GTX10xx is basically GTX 9xx series shrink to 16nm manufacturing tech. AMD cards are architecturally superior. GTX 10xx prices are also high because lack of competition on high end right now. AMD wants to grab market share with mid end and low end cards, high end Vega with HBM2 will be much faster than anything right now and comes "H1/2017". On CPU side I would recommend Intel hexa core but because AMD Zen launch is confirmed January 2017 with Ferbuary 2017 availability, it's very bad time to buy hexa/octa core CPU.

 

I'm also planning upgrade but will hold it until February for above reasons.

Good choice. 8 core/16 thread Zen feels good for your use.

FWIW:  Topic originally posted in Buying New Computer forum...IMO, rather than buying, you really ought to consider assembling your own system.  More flexibility, easy to do, less locked in with a system where changing components becomes more difficult.
