So this is what jealousy looks like.
The 1080's have already been released
The 1070 founders edition comes out on june 10th and the board partners will most likely have cards released within the following weeks at about 379.99 USD MSRP.
If you'll wait for the 1070 to come out the graphics card market will fluctuate drastically and the price of that gpu will most likely decrease. Other than that you could probably get away with using a 500W power supply unless you plan to make several upgrades in the future before buying another PSU
thanks for the extra advice :)
Thank you. I appreciate the feedback but one more concern of mine is my current motherboard only has a PCI Express 1x16 slot. I dont know if that causes any GPU bottlenecks either but it seems dated and doesnt provide very good rigidity. So would it be a good idea to upgrade my motherboard for the time being? The socket is kinda hard to find nowadays and is still pricey for solid features.

If you are considering going into YouTube and Twitch live streaming, you better start now because that thing is a beast of a render machine on top of that gaming!
