Hello. I plan on purchasing this build during the black Friday sale. I currently have an old DELL E228WFP 22" (https://www.cnet.com/products/dell-e228wfp-22-widescreen-flat-panel-monitor/specs/) monitor and would like to know if I should consider investing in a new one. One of the purposes of purchasing this computer is to play FPS games such as cs:go and call of duty therefore I would like to know which monitor would optimize this experience. Also if I were to upgrade, please let me know what I should be looking for when considering purchasing a new monitor. Please note my budget for a new monitor would be around $200CAD. Thanks!

Your card can handle a 1080p handily and a 1440p at lower FPS. Anything above that you will have a horrible experience with.
