Hey guys, i'm new here and i have a couple questions. I have a alright gaming rig at home. But i have a feeling its underperforming, For example this is my friends rig. (1070ti, 6700K, 16gb ram 3k mhz, psu 650 watt screen: 1920x1080 144hz) He hits the same amount of fps as me on rainbow six siege on the same setting. And he hits higher on some games.

And my second question is, is my rig to weak to perform good fps on my super ultrawide monitor? I'm hitting around 50-60 fps on high/ultra settings. <---- SP games.

And my third question, is it worth to upgrade to an 2080ti and an i9 9900k or one of those. And what do i need to upgrade with it?

My gaming rig
Asus rog strix 1080
intel core i7700k,
MSI z270 motherboard
16gb DDR4 3000 mhz
First screen is the benq 1920x1080 144hz
Second screen asus super ultra wide 3840x1080 144hz

Edit: For the people reading this. The game im refering to in my first question is on my 1920x1080 144hz screen not my SUW. I understand that aint getting the same amout of fps on a 3840x1080 i'm just wondering if my rig could pump more then 60 fps.

Your super ultra wide has the middle point in pixels between a 1440p and ultra wide 1440p. Even a 2080Ti cannot push 144FPS in every game at 1440p so adding another 500k pixels will make it a bit harder https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/zotac-geforce-rtx-2080-amp,5839-2.html Going up in CPU could increase your FPS with your GPU in some games but you might not tell the difference. https://www.anandtech.com/show/14043/upgrading-from-an-intel-core-i7-2600k-testing-sandy-bridge-in-2019/11 That review shows 2600k, 7700k, & 9700k with GTX 1080 GPU. The only way you would be sure to get higher FPS would be a GPU upgrade, but is the cost really worth it? https://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/2139?vs=2135

I'm not sure what MSI Z270 board you have, but 4200MHz sounds ridiculous and I have doubts you're actually running your RAM at those speeds, but random thought aside, chances are it's your monitor resolution that's making things even between the two rigs, alternatively, it could be that your friend is overclocking both CPU and GPU to their max stable values and you are running stock, which would close the gap in performance as well on top of the possible fact that your monitor has more pixels than your friends monitor (don't really know since you haven't said anything about that)

-you not running games at 1080p are you ? but your friend is.
-is it worth getting i9 over i7 7700k to increase fps ? no, CPU dont pump out FPS, you will see fps increase when moving from a dual core chip to i9 but will not see a huge difference between i7 and i9 in terms of fps and that too in only a small number of games which likes CPU power.
-GPU is the one which pump out FPS now do you need 2080ti depends on how deep your pockets go and can you really tell the difference between 70-80fps(1070ti) and 130fps(2080ti) at 1440P.


-also what with 4200mhz ram on an intel build ? i am just curious.. why 4200mhz on an intel ? couldve gone with 3000mhz and get 1080ti. :unsure::unsure:

Being able to run games on 4k resolution is very difficult to do even with beefy GPU's. I would think trying to run ultra on that panel would be the reason you are not seeing the same results. If you were to run the game on your first monitor, you would see familiar results.

The 4200 mhz is probably not true i could't find the once i have atm, my friend monitor is a 1920x1080 144hz screen. And i play the game he has more fps on on my first screen the 1920x1080 144hz with my other monitor turned off and he still get better fps.

Sorry that i didnt put that in, but when i play with my friend i play on my competitive monitor 1920x1080, so im hitting less fps with a better rig

6700k+gtx 1070ti vs 7700k+ gtx1080
both are not that much different, ideally you should get around 12-18fps at more than your mate's system at most.

how much fps difference you seeing ? you sure you both running same settings ?
or may be your mate got GPU with costume PCB and your GPU got that is close to founders edition.

Ill do some benchmarks tonight, on his and mine. And ill ask him about the pcb.
