Got Ryzen 5 2600x rx5700xt and 16g 3200 ram. My full set up are on several of my threads. Looking at this dell with 155hz and 2k. Will my pc handle this? Has freesync too for £300.

Thanks ūüėÄ

So the CPU wouldn't be an bottleneck? I can't overclock CPU with my mobo as well. It is what I was worried about. And the rx5700xt is powerful enough? I will probably stay on 1080 most of the time just nice I have the option for more and the extra Hz is always good.

2600x shouldn't be overworked but it's IPC wouldn't give full utilisation of the 5700 in 1080p if frame rates are expected to be 120+ in modern games. Cpu sets the fps cap, it's whatever amount it is able to pre-render for the gpu. In cpu intensive games IPC is important to get the game code done plus sustain frame rates.

5700 is bit below a 1080Ti so can roughly compare fps ability from 2600x. See benchmarks, test gpu 1080Ti.

So if I cap the FPS myself to increase performance?

Na, let your 2600x do as much as it can without cap. If cpu usage reaches near 100% and if experience stutters (i don't think it will most times) then cap fps to a level where cpu utilisation isn't maxed or increase details to lower fps output.

I would still get that monitor though. Freesync is pretty awesome to have. Doesn't matter if fps doesn't reach maximum refresh, just the fact Freesync makes visuals look smoother and hardly notice frame dips when within Freesync fps range.

I have freesync on my 75 Hz screen but not noticed it's any better than my 60 Hz non sync.... Hopefully this screen is more of a difference. I was also looking at this Alienware screen like 255 Hz but only 1080.. those cards benchmarked were modded 5700 xts so not looking good haha.

2600x + 5700 will do more than 75fps so you'll notice a difference. Don't bother with 255Hz unless play esports games where cpu isn't as demanding allowing for more fps.
So the higher Hz will reduce FPS ? Which would be better on my CPU? Bit 144/155 is the sweet spot. Also if it's 155 for 2k will it be higher or same for 1080?

Hz doesn't reduce fps. Monitor Hz (refresh rate) determines how many frames are shown on screen. It's the cpu's job to deliver those frames to the gpu to be put on screen. 2600x is capable of producing around 120fps before it tops out in 1080p.

Go with the 1440p monitor and don't use antialiasing. Frame rates should be pretty good.

A few days back I was playing NFS Payback on Windowed mode with R5 1600 and a GTX 1050ti and CPU was hitting about 60 percent usage, resolution was 1/5 to of 1080p as measure in screen size as game doesn't report resolution in windowed mode. I think 155hz will be achievable if you overclock your 2600

Antialiasing I think makes a big difference in graphics though. Anyway I'll probably get the monitor and stick with 1080 with the high refresh rate. Thanks for the help. ūüĎć

No worries.

At 1440p, don't need antialiasing as much compared to 1080p. Depends on screen size. 27" screen i have i never use aa in 1440p.
Anti aliasing is reqd if your monitor is 1440p and game is rendered in same resolution. If monitor is in lower resolution like 720p and rendering in 1440p then anti sliding isn't reqd

Antialiasing crisps up the edges. Native 1440p resolution is pretty crisp, i don't need it personally. If i dropped the resolution down to 1080p or 720p then yeah, I'd use antialiasing or enable dsr.

Yeah its a great screen had some issues with Shadow of tomb raider but rolling back in driver software for card sorted it and Titalfall 2 ran like a dream 2k highest settings :D
