Currently I am playing on an i5-3570K + R9 380 4G 1080p Screen With DirectX 12 (DX12) I seem to be running latest Warhammer titles pretty smoothly. Although FPS counter appears to be fairly low, the ingame actual experience is smooth on "high" settings.
However, I'd like to upgrade the screen to a 1440p one. For this, the R9 380 4G card will struggle and thus I need to upgrade to play on similar or higher settings. I don't want to break the bank, though..
What are your recommendations?
I am thinking: - Nvidia 1070 8GB: but will it run smoothly on DX12 ? Are there any issues with this card and TW titles (recent)? 440 EUR - AMD RX 580 8GB: will it handle 1440p gaming, considering DX12? 370 EUR - ???
What about Freesync/G-sync? Should I rather go for an ultrawide (curved) 21:9 screen such as: Acer XZ350CU Black 35" 21:9 Ultra-wide Curved Monitor, FreeSync 144 Hz 4ms 2560 x 1080 - for which I'd better go with AMD?
Any suggestions are welcome. Useful info: MOBO is Asrock Extreme 4 Z77.
Thanks in advance.
P.s.: considering my pleasant surprise on the R9 380 4G performance on DX12 regardless of stats, I'm not so much interested in FPS numbers as I am in actual gameplay experience.
