What games? What settings? Don’t expect 1440p 150+fps on ultra settings in any AAA titles with your current list.

Just about any triple A games that come out (some demanding). I don't mind if I need to turn down setting in some to get that high fps. I'm currently running everything on low with my 960 card...lol. I think this build will keep me steady with some minor OC

If you're willing to turn down most settings to high, you could probably achieve 120+fps. For consistency across games, I'd personally down clock my monitor to 120hz because different engines' performance will very quite a bit once you get into high frame rates like that. Trust me, it is a pain to have to switch monitor profiles whenever you load a different game.

Are you able to notice any big difference between 144hz and 120hz when you do that? Im at 60hz currently and wouldn't know.

No the difference is not really gonna be noticeable its typically 60 to 90hz is where the night and day difference starts and then anything past 120 typically you just have to have really good eyes to tell the difference

Turn down some graphics settings a little (or a lot in some games), and you'll get 144fps at 2k resolution. You could probably spend less on that cpu cooler unless your doing some major over clocking or just like the looks. Other than that, not a bad parts list.

Planning on some minor OC, but yeah I do like the aesthetic. Thanks
