Monitor upgrade help needed

newcomer52

9 months ago

I have 3 1080p monitors (one 22" & two 27") and I would like to move to a 34" 1440p monitor. If I can fit them all on my desk, I plan to keep the two 27" monitors as well. Right now I'm running a GTX 1060 3GB, can it handle this upgrade? I don't play FPS games, mostly just city building and simulation games as well as recording and editing game play videos. I can buy the monitor next week, but if I need to upgrade the GPU first that would about a month before I could do that and another two months before I could get a monitor. I would like to get the monitor first and upgrade the GPU in a couple months if I'll be able to run the monitor with what I have now.

Here is my complete build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/BnRWRJ

The 1060 will most likely be able to handle these three monitors as long as you don't play fps games, the vram shouldn't be a problem unless you are doing games on multiple monitors.
