I'm planning on finally upgrading my 1080p 60hz monitor to something but my gtx 780 is getting kinda outdated so I was curious if anyone could help me with what monitor and GPU to get with what my current build is cause I might do a new build with transferring the parts I'm asking about getting now in the future. My specs are a Rampage V Extreme with an i7 5820k not OCed yet probably should with 16gb of 2666mhz of Ripjaws ram. I was looking at 240hz 1080p and 1440p 144hz with 2080 ti but I'm not really sure any advice would be great.

Depends on how many FPS you want to push... You could get a ultra wide/super wide monitor etc all bells as whistles at 1440p or higher and your GPU would only manage ~60 FPS on Ultra even with a super GPU - just be mindful of that...

I went with a 27" Acer Predator XB271HU G-Sync Monitor, 165Hz IPS Panel, 2560x1440 - with a RTX 2070.

The monitor is the best thing I've purchased since upgrading my system....

I'm more looking for the most fps possible cause I play a lot of competitive games but idk if my cpu is good enough for something like a 2080ti even if I can get it to overclock well. I'm not really trying to lose alot of fps for it to look a bit better.

Be very careful though of the model numbers 34GK950F-B that one has 144hz, 34GK950G-B, this one has 120hz, so F=144hz G=120hz
I'm more of looking to get the most fps I can so idk if that would be that great for me. I just hope that my CPU overclocked wont bottleneck the gpu like crazy so i can actually hit high hz in new and upcoming AAA games.
