Oops, sorry I missed your original post here. That's crazy that you're still on a CRT screen in 2018! It's actually kind of cool to see one functional and still in use, though. No plans or desire to upgrade the monitor at all?

But what about more details/pixels, better response rate, faster refresh, blue light filter, anti-flicker tech, etc.?

As you may know:
- Every mesh terrain looses its flair when flying below a certain height and is just noteable as blur
- Every structure on ground become slightly unsharp at appearing because FSX supports not all shaders, roundings and so on
- The lights at the airports are everytime kinda fading, no matter how deep or sharp the adjustments of pixels are
- Depends on your taste of routings, if you are more IFR related, you would see the ground textures only at departing/arriving, if you more VFR then you have the opportunity to add some 3rd party ware to increase the dense of the ground details, but from a certain height the blur effect will occur.

I was at the early beta and later gold phase of the actual dead Combat Simulator (not CSF from MS) and one of the basics of the game was to navigate below or around 2500ft VFR with props into school and later jets at career modus and believe me, that was a hard piece of patience to identify the reference points or targets at the shooting range.
Even the increasing of the pixel factor hadnt change that, at a point the FSX runs outta details and thats it.
Im pleased with the performance and depth of the details but anybody should feel free to test and experiment with other settings and hardware.

I wouldn't consider it a monster. In size maybe.

If I'm not going to bother with OC'ing and such, I'm not a shooter game type of person, it will mostly be racing games for my new sim rig.

A 1070Ti is going to everything I need on a triple monitor setup, there is no reason to mess with water cooling is there?

Looks sick. Makes me want to upgrade my case now.
How do you like the RTX card? Was reading consistent 60fps at 4k.

Watercooling is just a niche enthusiast thing. It does help with overclocking but you're talking percent differences. It's like modifying your car. You don't have to do it but we do it because we enjoy it.

Thanks! The case market is strong right now. Lots of really nice looking options out.
Honestly, the RTX 2080 is basically a glorified 1080Ti. I don't have a 4k monitor to test this out but the 2080Ti should be better for 4k.

I'm basically playing 1440p on my predator monitor on a 1080. Contemplating if making the upgrade to 4k is worth the price given the fact the 1080 is killing whatever I currently throw at it.

Ah gotcha. I'm actually working my way up to your specs. I'm waiting on LGs 1440p 120hz panel to release in November.

Going from your Asus Predator to a 4k 60z means you'll be losing the high refresh rate. IMO, I'd rather keep the smoothness of the high refresh rate than bump the resolution.

Gotcha, that's what I was thinking, but wanted to double-check.

Yea RTX hasn't convinced me yet to get rid of my 1080.

I'm using dell 1440p w/ g-sync so im still pretty good on maxing out my games.

Got invited to the AC Odyssey Project stream beta. Its very cool w/ solid internet connection. World is going all cloud based in the next few years.
