Ok guys so i'm building a new rig.
I've got most things picked out already But could use some advice since it's been about 6-7 years since my last build.

Here is what i have so far:
rosewill thor v2 case.

Asrock Fatal1ty Z87 Killer LGA 1150 Intel Z87.

i5 4570 and 8gb dr3 1600

I was looking at gtx 780 With a 21:9 (2560x1080) but i'm wondering If the 780 will play Most games at that res On max settings. Like Batman arkham city, farcry 3, Skyrim. at a good fps. or any thing else i should do with monitor / gpu?
thanks for all your help!

Best solution

21:9 is ugly, Most users even liked 16:10 more than 16:9, let alone 21... I'd recommend a 2560x1440 instead, or if you find that too expensive then you better get 1920x1080. Most Tech Geeks will think that having a 780 playing on a 1920x1080 monitor is something very wrong, so there is nothing wrong with 2560x1440 and 780.

Okay thank you! I just found a 21:9 for 380 and thought that it would be pretty cool. do you think the 780 could handle three 1920x1080's?

Actually I found a 2560x 1440 for cheaper than the 21:9 monitor. Thank you again!

780 Will struggle on 5760x1920, they have roughly twice more pixels that of 2560x1440. 2560x1440 will work fine though. Your welcome.
