i7 4790k - Non OC
HGST 4TB HDD for files
Samsung 850 PRO 512gb for O.S and running my programs

LG optical drive
Rosewill card reader
kingwin fan controller
Windows 7 64bit
This is my 1st build. Let me tell you I had a blast doing this and learned a lot from all of you. Thanks.
I will be running 3 monitors.
Not all 3 monitors will match. But Oh well. Not right away anyways.. Maybe down the road they will.
These are the 3 monitors I have
24" Acer 144hz
And 2 old 19" 60hz monitor that came with a computer @ some point in time.
I am planning to ditch 1 of the 19" monitors.
But I'd like to get a great quality, value, size resolution monitor for the center of my setup.
I was thinking orignaly 27" 1440 overclocked Qnix.
27"+ 1440 60hz
27"+ 2560 <--- that's 4 k right..?)
I built this computer with the intent of challenging myself to build a computer. I did it. And IMHO I did pretty well.
What do I use this computer for...? Mostly internet browsing, internet videos, home pictures and videos ( might like to get into editing home pics and vids. someday...) and right now minimal gaming. But I def. want to get into gaming. How serious and hardcore will I be. Not much.
I would really like this next monitor to be the center piece of my 3 monitors. And all 3 will need to run off my single MSI 970 GPU.
Can my GPU run 2k? 4k?
Can my monitor run 2K or 4K when the other 2 monitors are running 1080?
So heres where Im @?
4k with my setup and 60hz and probally a lower FPS
Again @ this time I do minimal to most gaming. ( we just had a baby, so I have ZERO free time ). But I would like to dabble in games. But I will not be a hardcore addict either.
I know my computer set-up is overkill for what I do.
I know I have a 144hz monitor and dont do much gaming. <--- but it was on a great sale.
Help me max out my potential from my 970 GPU
Hopefully no bashing please.
