Yeh i did just wonder about it tbh, i will eventually look at upgrading to a 1440p monitor but it will be later this year/next year or knowing me i'll never get round to it lol

Yup, then use Fastsync.

I would get a 1080ti, a 1440p G-sync monitor and an extra 8GB of DDR3.
Then wait 2-6 months to see what Ryzen+ turns out to be and whether the DDR4 prices go down.

Thats blowing the budget a little bit getting the monitor lol. Think the build i'm looking at getting so far works well, only other thing i've considered is maybe one of the cheaper 1080ti, but then obviously suffers on clock speed.

The thing is. Go up in resolution and the GPU gets hammered = The CPU isn't as important.
OC that i5, and you can easily game for another year or more.

As you can see, i have a i7 4790k, i upgraded from a 4670k 9 months ago, didn't really gain a ton of FPS. And 1440p Ultra setting just looks stunning. Going from 24" 1080p to 27" 1440p is the best gaming thing i have done in a LONG time

Just watched the figures part, yeh i get what your saying, i have noticed that my CPU does struggle abit with some of the games i play, mainly warhammer 2 and some of my more CPU intensive games, hence why i'm thinking bugger it i may aswell just upgrade the lot while i'm at it.

With a G-sync monitor i don't think you will notice a difference
As i see it, as long as its not a competitive game 60 or 100 fps isn't important.

Nope. And any way, Fast Sync will run the game as fast as you can run it any way.

I was going to do a big write up on this but to cut it all very short.. Adaptive Vysnc globally cures any tearing and input lag. The price? you *will* feel the game slow down and it will be noticeable but you won't get any tearing or input lag. I have not used Fast Sync yet. I have, however, used Gsync and it wasn't that much better than AVS. Again, you *will* most certainly notice the game slowing down. Absolutely 100% it's unavoidable when you tank from 80 to 30 FPS for example, but it seems to do a similar thing to AVS where you don't get any tears or input lag.

The answer for perfection? as always, throw power at it. *if* you can keep your min FPS above 60 on a 60mhz monitor Vsync will be enabled but there will be no input lag. It really is as simple as that.

There are two main bugbears with gaming. Tearing and lag. Tearing is hideous (it happens when your FPS exceed the hz of your monitor) and lag causes death. In BF3 I could not do the sniper in the mall part because of input lag. It was awful. However, like I said, no technology no matter how good is going to stop the sensation of dropping from 80-30 FPS, or in fact any 50% drop in frame rate. You are definitely going to feel it and notice it, no matter how good the technology for preventing tearing and input lag. That is just PC gaming.

I just throw Titans at the resolution I run. It has worked very well for me. Much better than Gsync, which I did have.
