The GTX1070Ti is a good 1440p card. Should get you 144Hz no problem in many games depending on quality settings.

If you're in the market for a GSync (VRR) display, most people agree that once you get >100fps you can't tell the difference.

Why are you looking at a Ryzen 1700 instead of the Ryzen 2700?

What you have isn't a bad build at all... but with some tweaking...

And this for slightly less.


EDIT: Yes, Ryzen 2700/2700X is newer, and improved, but it will bump the cost of your build... Now, you can probably get away with this instead, unless you really need those extra cores.

I already have this setup. Just wondering if I could upgrade the monitor. Thanks for the response!

Yeah, 4k's gonna get ya. 1440p has the least compromises, so that's where I'm upgrading to. Might want to turn that down to 1440p when possible, as 4k is pretty difficult to run on any build.
