I hate when you make sense, you know this Imp lol The only thing that draws me in there is the Acer, because it's cheap. But I know BenQ is a great brand as well. Moving on up the price ladder, the ROG Swift is beautiful, but expensive.

I definitely want another ultrawide. I can't imaging gaming on one that is NOT ultrawide. It's researching panels and looking to see if GSYNC is worth enabling or not

Also added some very high airflow Fractal Design Venturi 140mm (for maximum positive pressure)

Is there a noticeable difference between the Fractal fans, and the be quiet ones?

Thanks Sinister. I know the 2070 is capable of more, however I only have a 75hz monitor. I will be upgrading the monitor down the road.

If I put the 120/140 on top there's a lot of space for dust to fall into the case. No filter.

Each fan has an rgb pin and a fan pin. All the rgb connectors go to the node pro. The fans however need to be plugged in? Unless I am misunderstanding this

I would upgrade your motherboard so you get better efficiency. It's better with high end CPU like the 2700x.

Check out the comparison chart and it'll show you. The Ryzen 5 has 2 more cores. However the frequency with the R5 and the 2200G is similair. The R5 also has multithreading, so if you're gaming and streaming or multitasking in general, it'll help out.

However I dont know if it's in USD or CAD or what currency. I would upgrade the mobo to an X470 if you can squeeze it in there.

Good luck!

well now you have me confused good sir. i understand what you're saying about achieving 100FPS plus on my current LG monitor, however I'm also understanding that the 2070 won't be enough to fulfill a 1440p monitor.

Soooo should I just keep using the monitor I have? Should I change the GPU?

Update your memory to this. Its better to utilize two dimm slots, and add storage SSDs when you can.

240hz! lol I think I'll be ok with 100-144 if i'm only using a 2070. or am i mistaken?

noted. I had my eyes on this LG but you're saying 3440x1440 is too much for a 2070 if i'm not misunderstanding. I find the x34 are too large for a desk.
