This is my setup :

Operating System
Windows 10 Home 64-bit
CPU
Intel Core i7 7700K @ 4.20GHz
Kaby Lake 14nm Technology
RAM
16,0GB
Motherboard
MSI Z270 GAMING M7

8GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 (MSI)
Storage
2794GB TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 (SATA )
232GB Samsung SSD 960 EVO 250GB (Unknown (SSD))


Any advice is appreciated !

Greetings Johny
 
Will it work? Yes. You won’t get steady 4K unless you drop everything to low and will struggle to get 60fps. I wouldn’t touch a monitor over $350 personally. $1650??? You can build a whole new PC for that lol. Now if you had a 2080ti I’d say get a 4k monitor but I still wouldn’t recommend that price unless it was a used car. For your setup I’d look into a good 1440p 144hz monitor for $350 or less.
 
Acer XG270HU is what I use with a 9900k and 1080ti and it works great and doesn’t break the bank. Here is a good use of $1650 if you have it to blow.

Thanks for your reply !

Now what monitor would you recommend that has G-Sync ?

Also is it worth with my setup to buy a monitor that has G-Sync ?

I'll buy the 4K screen later down the road when i get a new PC, but i would like a nice monitor that i can play the new COD Modern Warfare on.

But i heard about G-Sync and that it would work well with the GPU i have.

That's why i'm asking.

Thanks for the advice man !

Now i am satisfied with the PC i have now, i have it now for a little over 2 years. And i will buy a new PC i another years or 2 maybe sooner.

But for now i would like a nice monitor that has G-Sync since i heard that would work well with the GPU i have.

Now i was looking around for a monitor like this which does not have 4K because 4K wouldn't work in a optimized way on my setup as i've heard.

The monitor I listed is gsync approved by Nvidia and works great.
I just bought mine a couple of months back. Gsync monitors are expensive and people started finally complaining so Nvidia started certifying freesync monitors as gsync compatible. The monitor I listed is the best for the price. Can’t see any reason to pay more but again if you want to spend the extra cash get the xb1
