    I dont think its waste of Money to have it running on 1080p screen. Games are becoming more demanding, so why not get it either way if you can and you own 1080p screen?

    Or use it to run at a higher resolution and then downsampling it to your native resolution using OGSSAA. You will get better graphics that way without spending extra cash on 1440p. Though it doesn't really replace an actual 1440p monitor. In my case anyway if I were to get a new monitor I would have to replace 2 at the same time, which is a lot of money for something that really isn't worth it to me at the moment.

    Also I doubt Airsoft is going to need 144hz. The ms increase is minimal from 120hz, so don't let yourself be contrained by that. Unless you want to do 3D things.
    That being said, 120hz and 144hz shouldn't differ in price that much anymore, might as well get the better one.

    I don't know what monitor he has, that's why I suggested those.

    By looking at some of the benchmarks, the 1080 appears to almost run games at 4K/60 fps.

    This is mine currently http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236335
    Probably due for an upgrade to 1440p first as well as a larger screen size but I first want to get the main hardware out of the way.

    Or if anything, the one listed above will later be my 2nd monitor where I won't play games on.

    Get a 21:9 screen. You already have a 120hz monitor if you ever want to be a pro gayyymer. The 1070 is rumored to be 10% faster than the 980ti, but it's just a rumor.

    PRO TIP: Wait for AMD, Polaris is right around da corner.

    This guy... AMD... By same power usage comparing one AMD card, you can run same price range two Nvidia cards.

    I got 970 and guess what my PSU power output is rated at? 550W!!! Most of the time not even using half it. Witcher 3 max graphics I get power usage @ 270-280W max. And If I would have to go with AMD, I probably would need 650W or 750W.

    Sure, I really hope AMD comes up with some good stuff, but so far I am not impressed.

    Make judgements.
    Some things like the mouse and keyboard are there for cost analysis. I will have to go to a store and try one out, but those are what i'm leaning towards.

    I may use my computer for 3d CAD modeling, engineering analysis (finite element analysis/computational fluid dynamics), and video editing/rendering in the future
