    Howdy all,

    As the title says I'm after help on deciding on a gpu for 1440p ultrawide gaming - AAA games on high+ settings proffered.

    Will be running with either a 3900x or 9900ks.

    Cheers.

    Hi, I had a gtx1070 running on 1440p UW (note that this was a g-sync monitor and can help smooth out action at lower FPS) and it was "ok" for AAA games with reduced settings. Fine for older games

    upgraded to a 1080ti and was a significantly better experience, runs very well but I still need to make a few tweaks to settings here and there.

    In short aim for around 1080ti level of performance or higher, in modern cards that would be

    Nvidia:
    RTX 2070 Super / RTX 2080 (mate has a 2080 and a 1440p UW and we get similar experiences).

    AMD:
    5700XT, this on average is a touch slower than a 2070S /1080ti based on benchmarks around the web

    A touch slower, but significantly cheaper.

    Agree with everyone, 3440x1440 needs a lot of grunt to run. I side graded to a 32inch 1440p from my Acer Predator because my Fury was starting to struggle at settings I like to play at.

    5700xt or better for a premium experience.

    Yep definetly consider a gpu faster than a 1080ti 2080 57xt for 3440x1440 if you wunna push 120-140hz

    1080ti or equiv is minimum id go for 2560x1440 @ 144hz

    Probably 2080 Super if you want 3440x1440@100hz+

    I don't think 5700XT will cut it, or at least not for long.

    I'm not shooting for 144fps or anything.

    I'm happy with 60fps at high+ settings.

    I have a Lg 1440pUW older one, variable refresh Freesync 75hz and use Vega 64, as the 1080ti pretty much has the same performance as 2080 you only choices are 2080 super not much of an upgrade, in my opinion unless you want the RTX features or 2080 ti

    I have a Radeon VII overclocked to the point where it scores around the same as a overclocked 1080ti or a 2080 super in some things with a 3440x1440 monitor and any of these cards will drop below 60FPS in a number of games but with a few details turned down you can typically keep most games over 60FPS.

    Re "2080 Super if you want 3440x1440@100hz+" totally agree with above advice,

    Even my rig as per sig below is just suitable for 3440x1440@100hz+

    Would love to be able to run dual 2080's instead under water cooling to get the absolute most out of 4k gaming but the cost is out of my reach at present...sigh!

    I'm currently running 3440*1440 120hz on a single 1080. It's 'fine' for most things at the moment (~60fps most of the time, which is totally fine with GSync), but as others have said, you really need a 2080 or better (2080super/2080ti) to give you a moderate level of futureproofing. I'm waiting for a game to come out that really shows my GPU up for a weakpoint, and then i'll upgrade to a 2080super/ti.

    Don't run dual 2080s SLI/NVLINK works well in prob 10% of cases. Wait for 3080ti
