Just got a 27" Dell gaming monitor (S2716DG), 1440p/144 Hz. Loving it so far, but unfortunately it's thrown off some of my games' FPS :'( Most are fine at the same maxed settings, running at just above 60 FPS, up to 80 FPS (or more, in less demanding games). The Witcher 3 took a hit, unfortunately, along with Deus Ex Mankind Divided. I really wish I would've got a GTX 1080...I'm going to miss being able to max everything out like I did at 1080p/60Hz), but overall, this monitor is so smooth most of the time, with G-Sync and everything.

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i7-8700K 6-Core 3.7GHz processor, a GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Gaming X Trio 8GB graphics card and 32GB RAM is better performing than 984 games from that list.
