Ok, I know i have been making similar threads over the last few weeks, but I have an update: I bought off the MM a 34" 21:9 144hz 2560x1080 monitor for a reasonable price. I also have a GTX1080 G1 being delivered today to replace my GTX970 G1. I have seen some benchmarks on youtube that seem to suggest that a Ryzen 1700 @ 3.9ghz could perform worse than my 2500k @ 4.5ghz purely for gaming. Will my GTX1080 perform well with my 2500k 4.5ghz? What does intel offer that isn't EOL that will boost my frames in CPU intensive games such as Arma 3?
