Are you using any adaptive sync on that monitor ? It's a Freesync Monitor but you have an Nvidia Card ?

If i had an AMD card i would be all over that Monitor, love it.... That being said it is 32:9 which means it is essentially playing on two standard monitors at once and at 144Hz at the same time which means you need a beefy GPU to handle all that processing, a 1070 isnt going to cut it. Would be fine for a single 16:9 display at 144Hz but not a 32:9 !!!

For what i can read i would recommend the following changes;

GPU upgrade to a 1080ti or a 2080 if you can afford it (EDIT: This would be a Vega 64 for AMD)
RAM Upgrade to 16GB from the 8GB you currently have of DDR4 (get the same memory if you can)

You may need a stronger PSU than 500 Watts to run a 1080ti and on a 2080 the minimum requirement is 650W. I would suggest you need a min,. 650W for either card to be honest. CPU looks OK at 3.5 but we need details on the Motherboard mate ? Do you know brand and details ?

I have kind of a problem to find all my specs. I can't find anything about this pc. Its model number is Acer Predator G6-710
But the problem with that is, this model has more models. And I can't find this model I have ANYWHERE!

And someone knows how to find all your specs ?

The thing is....in order to find out what CPU you could possibly upgrade to....we'd need to know the motherboard.

I'm finding sites that show a similar PC with an i7....so I'm thinking it can "probably" take an i7....but we don't know for sure without the MB specs.

I have also start thinking that maybe a new pc is a better option? Because I'm not a hundred if I wanna change inside the computer.
The price for all this is 2 835,96 United States Dollar. Is this a better option?

Looks ok at a glance matey but not enough info, can you make your build on www.pcpartspicker.com and provide a link here, you will need to make your build public so we can access the link....

It if its a prebuilt can you provide a link, looks like it may be a Lenovo build ? Have you though about building yourself, it is VERY easy these days mate but understand if your hesitant...

I'm not really into building anymore. I got the feeling that, I don't wanna risk it. I want a prebuilt computer.
But the computer I sent. That information was all I found.

But is the money worth it, or can I find somewhere cheaper? (I know, building is cheaper. But it's not I directly an option for me)
