In Topic: Far Cry 5 Co-op Trailer Released

I'm hoping they made some changes to the game engine for this game from the previous. Played Far Cry 4 and finished it and I thought the engine looked great.

I would probably go with the eVGA 240 AIO since these 8700K processors run hot as the 7700K. Besides that Corsair H60 is way outdated and wouldn't do so good with your new processor.

That case you listed is really nice, it supports up to 10 fans which I thought was crazy good. I don't even think I can fit that many fans in my case. Both of those PSU's are solid, but I personally would go with PC Power & Cooling, since it's been in the market for a very long long time. And in regards to the 144Hz monitor, you would more likely have to purchase an expensive video card to really get frames that high up in games. Anyhow good luck with your build and do let us know how it goes.

In Topic: New drivers from Geforce

I've been using the latest NVidia driver 387.92 for my GTX 1070 and I haven't had any issues with two new games I've been playing this week.

That deal is a steal for sure. If you are going to purchase a 144Hz monitor then you'll need a high performance video card. That 760 is not going to cut it, so you'll need to upgrade that down the road. That CPU,RAM, and MOBO you have listed in your post is great and you'll notice a great improvement over your DFI setup for sure. What you want to do is research in the games you want to play, see how they are benchmarked, which video cards are playing them at high frames per second in the benchmarks, and buy the card that fits the need for 144Hz monitor. Now i'm not sure which resolution you are planning to get with that monitor, but if you are going higher than 1080p then my best bet would be either a 1080 Ti or one of those Vega 64 cards. Cause in order to achieve that high of a frame you'll need muscle behind it. I know for a fact that the GTX 1070 isn't going to cut it for every game at 144Hz, and that's why my monitor is only 1080p 60Hz. If I were you I would go on ebay and look around for your video card when you do plan on buying it. I built my whole previous system from buying stuff I needed from ebay. I would bet anyone here they would tell you to get a 1080 Ti when it comes to 144Hz monitor. Also for a PSU, make sure you buy good quality, and at least an 850W. I hope that I have answered most of your questions, and good luck.
