Ultrawide 21:9 2560x1080p Gaming Setup!

Hey, looking for some input on my new parts list. I'm trying to upgrade from 16:9, so I've decided on a 2560x1080 29-inch setup that should get me a constant 60-75 FPS at Ultra/Max settings while modding games such as GTA V, CS:GO, DayZ etc. I was big into custom building about 6 months ago but a lot has changed in the tech world obviously and I'm just trying to make sure I'm doing it right still, lol. I'm really focused on keeping the GPU 's because I'm trying to future proof for at least 3 years and maybe upgrade the monitor to 1440p ultrawide. I'm also looking to keep the i7-6800k because I'm used to having TONS of Chrome tabs open and having other things open while gaming, so this CPU suits me well. Other than those two and the peripherals I'm pretty open to change on anything. Thanks for helping me out! :)

Way overkill for that resolution, a single 1080 or even 1070 would be enough, I think you should at least go 3440x1440. Or go all out with an x34 or the PG348Q.

I know its overkill, but will two 1080's be able to handle ultrawide 4k?

Ultrawide 4k? You mean 3840x2160 in 21:9?

That's not how ultra wide works

I know how it works but as far as I know there is no ultrawide 4k.

3440 is pretty close to 4K
