I have a GeForce GTX 980, should I get the Acer Predator X34?

Question by Richard from United States | Answered by Anthony Garreffa | Displays & Projectors | Dec 23, 2015 at 8:10 pm CST

Hey TweakTown,

I've had my GeForce GTX 980 for a while now, but I'm in the market for a new gaming monitor now. For the last 2-3 years now I've been running a Samsung 27-inch monitor with a resolution of 1920x1080 and a 120Hz refresh rate.

I don't game as much anymore, but that doesn't mean I don't want a gaming display. I do more productivity work on my PC now, but want to be able to have a great time gaming when I do get the time to put some hours into something like an FPS or League of Legends. I've been eyeing off an UltraWide monitor, especially after your review on the Acer Predator X34. So I have a few questions:

  • Is my GTX 980 powerful enough to run 3440x1440 in games (it doesn't need to be Ultra detail)
  • Is the Acer Predator X34 all that it's cracked up to be?
  • If I did upgrade to a new GPU, should I get the GTX 980 Ti or Titan X?

Should I upgrade my PSU if I upgrade from a GTX 670 to a GTX 970?

I own a Cooler Master GX 450W psu. It has been used for nearly 2 years. It's powering my pc absolutely fine (no BDOS,etc) which has a MSI GTX 670 Power OC edition, overclocked FX-6100 @4.1GHz, MSI 990XA-GD55 mobo, two 4GB RAM sticks, two HDDs and a few fans. I am thinking about upgrading to GTX 970. So, I have two questions. Will my psu be able to handle GTX 970 since GTX 970 possibly has same power consumption as GTX 670? And will the upgrade from GTX 670 to GTX 970 even be worth it? I game at 1080p. Thanks for reading :)

Should I upgrade to the MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti Lightning, or wait?
