IMO and based on a lot of questions we often get asked, 4K isn't worth the cost. 1440p is usually as far as I'd go. But that's just me. Some will argue the adverse.
How long have you had your PSU? Presumablly it is the AXi series?
Is your currency USD?
Is it mainly just gaming you want to use it for?

Yes it is The AXI psu is about 4 years old. And after looking around I agree with you I think 1440p ultrawide is my happy place. Gaming is my main focus yes and USD is my currency

I feel like I'm bottlenecked I'm not getting the fps I feel that I should be getting with this setup. I'm just getting off work so I will be able to post fps in a few hours to see what you think. But I have been monitoring gpu and cpu usage and all sees right but it's not giving the results not sure if it could be the resolution of the ultrawide or the memory. I just didn't think i7 4790k and rtx 2060 super would preform mid 60s fps

So I benchmarked several games to day and its like it knew I was on to it. On ultra settings I maxed out my monitor refresh rate(80). Only battlefield 5 and the division 2 got my cpu to 70%. That being said I am thinking of going to 1440p ultrawide since that seems to shift the load to the gpu or so I have seen. What do you think?
