    Hi All,
    I have a gtx 1070 gpu and currently run 2 x 27 inch monitors at 1080p and I was wanting to change one of them to a 32.5 or 32inch monitor at 1440p. Would the gtx1070 struggle? looking for some advice as the card is fine for my needs right now.

    Swear if is not ultra wide then it will be ok. Mine is, all good.

    You should be ok with a mix of Medium and sometimes low settings (depends what fps you're going to be aiming for, 144hz etc).

    I run an ultra wide at 1080p using my Vega 56, just got off a mafia 2 session, I achieve AVG frame rate of 120fps

    Released 10yrs ago, I should hope so!

    I was commenting on rather...newer games.

    It depends on the games and settings and resolution. size of screen makes zero difference.

    a 1080p screen that is 20 inches uses the same amount of power as a 1080p screen that is 120 inches.

    as for 1440P and 144hz. you ideally want a 2070 super for modern games.

    i've used a gtx 1070 and it struggled, i then upgraded to a 1080 and that was fine. but now my 2070 super shreds at that res and i play at 165hz. it still struggles in some games and i have to lower settings. so a 1070 wouldn't work at all IMO for me.

    Thanks for the advice, I will give it a go with the 1070 once the monitor arrives and if I have issues I will have to buy a new GPU.

    Yup, not like Medium or even Low looks crap nowadays! Plus new GPU's out soon so win-win :)

    32 inch and 27 inch works like a dream but now I have the feeling I want to trade the 27 for a matching 32....
