Hey! To be honest, I think you'll be MORE than fine. Lower the settings from MAX and you'll quickly jump to 144+ fps on most AAA titles.

My two cents on G-Sync: Yes, it does prevent stuttering, tearing and other artifacts and of course it works wonderfully well. BUT, a single frame on a 144hz panel is visible for only 6.9 milliseconds. I mean, that's stupid fast. That means that artifacts, if and when they occur, are displayed on screen for an incredibly short amount of time. The end result? You'll immediately feel like your gameplay is much smoother on 144hz as opposed to 60hz. G-Sync just turns the very smooth into the uber-smooth.

A G-Sync enabled monitor is about 150 to 200$ more when compared with a similar non G-Sync display. Personally, I'd much rather spend the extra 200$ to upgrade my 1070 to a 1080 than to keep the 1070 and buy a g-sync display.

If your build can supply a steady 144fps to the 144hz monitor, you'll feel like you're playing with a 20k build - it's just so damn silky. G-Sync is wonderful but it's very expensive gravy. :)

As an an example, I'm running my GTX 1080 Strix on stock clock and pushing the Division @ near max, 144fps+. The gameplay is so damn smooth, I don't think i'd even notice with or without G-Sync. I have no stutter, no artifacts, etc.

We both got lucky!!

I was curious, there are some people saying that there's a "purple glitch" with this display, have you seen anything wrong with it so far? I haven't but it was a concern, I have to admit.

ohhh, that 1080ti.... Damn you! xD

And yea, damn TN panels are just... obsolete. It's total crap and only but a few can muster up a decent image that's worthy of today's available tech.

I'm excited to see what QD will provide in the future but man, it's no gimmick, that much i'm confortable vouching for. Is it worth the full retail price? Not a chance... BUT, on a discount, it's a serious consideration.

What display are you currently rocking with that beast of a GPU? I'm curious! xD

I second that. Too few pixels for such a large display. It'll look something like a 200-inch outdoor advertising panel. xD

I feel your pain, I don't know about you but I had to get myself blue light reducing glasses (works wonders, imo). As for the the difference between this display and my IPS at work (i do graphic design and UI/UX design), well, they are VERY close to one another. Of course the Quantum dot panel has more vibrant colors but they are less accurate overall than a high-end IPS display, and of course, I wouldn't dare compare it to true 10-bit panels.

That being said, I truly feel like this VA panel has NOTHING in common with traditional TN panels. It's far brighter, clearer and has a very satisfying contrast ratio that makes me forget this isn't an IPS panel. Now that's Quantum Dot doing it's thing. It's VERY impressive, i have to admit.

I feel you on the 1440p panel but to be honest, the real smooth gaming experience comes when your build can produce as many fps as your monitor can display. That's the real deal here. IF you happen to have a build that can sustain MAX @ 144fps+ on 1440p, then, you're set (and damn, that's awesome). But my 7600k and single overclocked gtx 1080 strix can't. Not even close :|

In your opinion, do you think it's required to have a larger AIO cooler if I intend to OC? Or would the smaller one do the job?

Also, if there's a wicked price drop in the i5-6600k, would it be worth dropping down from Z270 to Z170 and get a less expensive build overall?

I was asking if it's worth - specifically - if I get a 6th gen instead. :)

Not sure about the 16gb, good point. Just figured it could be useful given the AAA titles i intend to play - Also, I'm a UI/UX designer and I've seen Illustrator EAT ram like candy.

Also, a 220$ case? Yep. love this case and it fits the decor of my home office really well. Also, I have a Husky at home (sheds like mad) so the tower will be on my desk, not on the floor - hidden from view. I want a nice looking case. :)

Hadn't looked at the 525gb mx300, thanks for the pro tips!

I'm gonna go with Holy F. ! The parts list couldn't fit in a damn phone book.

I can only say that it's great this was built once you had passed the 16 year-old mark. That's the real virginator, right there.

Kudos on the build choices, this is an epic build with a great looking setup! Well done!!

Sweet list but umm for gaming, why a 500$ mobo, 1200W PSU(ridiculous overkill for these parts) and 32gb ram?

It looks like you're aiming for a 4k gaming build so why not reduce those parts and swing for a Titan X instead? I'm just curious - a 5k budget could get you monumental performance increases that just aren't accessible in this current build. Even 1070's in SLI would be much better with 16GB vram combined.

Thoughts?
