I recently got a new monitor the Asus ROG Swift PG279Q: 1440p, 144hz, with g-sync.
I currently have i7-3770k, 32gb ram, with 2x GTX 670 powering it.
My question is what gpu would be a good fit for this monitor. I am a little unclear on how g-sync effects the requirements. Should I be trying to get my fps 120+? I am getting ready to get a new gpu but I want to make sure I get one that does not leave me under-powered to take advantage of what my monitor offers.
I have been a fan of Geforce for a while and with the 1080/1070 it is a choice between to two unless there would be a big reason I should wait for a 1080ti. From the benchmarks on YouTube of The Witcher 3, it seems people get around ~60fps at 1440p with everything maxed. While Ultra is not necessary I would like to be able to do a mix of high/ultra level settings.
I am currently playing The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine and will be getting Dues EX: Mankind Divided when it is released, after those I will probably look into either Fall Out 4 or Rise of the Tomb Raider.
I would rather not spend $800+ on a gpu but if it will save me money a year later, I would rather buy 1 gpu then have to another for SLI 6-12 months later.
