Cool, I'll update my machine in the middle or the end of the year, with a configuration similar to yours, except the VGA, which will be a 1070 or 1060, because here in Brazil the prices are salty :p

No, VGA = GPU, not the cable :B, here the stores use the term VGA for a video card, what is the brand of your video card?
ah did not know that good to know, its a gigabyte g1 gaming, even tho in the past i have had msi, asus are really good and would be my first choice but there expensive :(.

I never bought anything from Gigabyte, I'm going to buy from ASUS, for me the best brand, I've always used it for many years, I've never had problems, both on the video card and on the motherboard, and it really is expensive, but it's worth it, because the cheap always comes out costly.

i agree i always had a asus motherboard cause its never failed me there rock solid and always use the best components digi+ , best capacitors etc and overall motherboard features are great and i overclock so asus are reliable, there gpus i have never used but for sure am even tho msi and gigabyte are good and use very good components still and have never failed me i just like asus, asus now do automated process so no human errors and good cooling and components used like always, even tho that rgb raises the price so much probs and not needed :(.

A potato computer half as good as yours could play all of those games on max settings at the peasantly 1080P. You are certainly ready for a 2K monitor which would be more fitting for that powerful hardware.

I am so glad you put 16GB in, and not 32-64GB.. I love when gamers say they dropped 32GB into a gaming rig. Apparently not understanding that no game uses over 8GB of ram and probably won't hit 16GB for another decade. ;-)

He can, but he will have to put the graphical configuration at a minimum, so I think he will have good gameplay and can render about 40 fps :unsure:

I have always played at 144hz so i like to max out most games but keep at least a solid 100+ at all times. i like the smoothness i have had like 8 asus 1440p monitors in 2015 and 2016, pg278q many times and pg279q but they all had issues with either bad backlight bleed or some other issues with the TN, im gonna probs get the pg278qr tn but not sure.

yh 32gb is useless and not needed unless people host some game servers or something or video rendering etc, most modern games at high settings do use more than 8gb tho, some games use around 10gb i have seen some just over like 11-12gb, so i think 16gb is just the sweet spot for gamers right now, for some gaming and multitasking.

i should add tho that most people with 8gb ram might want to have spotify open in certain games, chrome in background and some other stuff and my friends does some of this with 8gb ram and struggles a bit in gta v where it stutters cause of ram load.

nice, yh i remember getting that 980 when it released certainly a beast of a gpu and more than enough if your only 60hz but a 1070/1080 there will be much more future proof, unless u of course play 120hz+.

Whats your cooling? pretty sure that cpu can go to like 4.4 to 4.6hz if you got decent one get some extra perf out of it :).

Yh i just remembered i use process lasso so if your gaming its a nice piece of software to put priority on always high, etc and avoid hyperthreading so games uses only real cores which can benefit some games nicely, can also always terminate programs you do not want to run and it will remember and close them off and launch, also for lower systems it has smart trim that works great and pro balance in general is good for keeping your pc smooth, check it out.

Bitsum. Real-time CPU Optimization and Automation Software for Windows

used it for few years and its great to use as just a task manager in general also.
