I’m looking to upgrade my monitor setup. I currently have 2 Dell 1080p monitors still running with DVI-D cables, and I’d love to upgrade to something HDMI. My GPU (MSI 970) only has 1 DVI port, but has 2 HDMI ports. These monitors also aren’t up to today’s standards as far as ms delay, etc. 1440p would be awesome; (simply for 144 FPS; these Dells are limited to 60 FPS), but I’m looking for something mid-range. Nothing top heavy (for money’s sake.) Here’s my current setup:
MSI Gaming M7 mobo
i7-6700k still clocked at stock 4.0GHz
16 gigs DDR4 RAM
MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G (4 gigs of VRAM)
750W gold rated EVGA PSU
With my somewhat low-end GPU (I have trouble running Ultra on some modern games, anywhere from 25-40 frames for certain triple A titles), should I upgrade it before trying to go for dual 1440p monitors? Any suggestions or ideas would be very helpful. This idea is still fresh in my head and I haven’t really gone through and looked at details, so anything helps. Thanks Strats!
