$1500 build 200fps multiple monitors

bimmington

I'm looking for a build that will constantly stay at 200 fps while playing overwatch at high or ultra. I would like to run 2 144hz 1080p monitors (any suggestions on monitors would help). I don't care about looks all that much. I have a 750w psu so you don't need to add that. My main goal is stability, I'm looking for butter smooth. I am willing to go higher with budget but would like to stick with $1500.

Would you recommend the aio cooler over air?

I don't think it's necessary, unless you're looking to absolutely max out your Cpu performance. I built for someone an i7 7700k with a Cryorig h7 and it sits at 4.7 GHz stable. If you want to go higher then an aio is worth it, but for most I think 4.7ghz on an i7 is more than enough.

Alright thanks. Also is it possible to use my old ssd and hd? Or is it better to just buy new ones?

Depends. If you are happy with it's size/speed currently, i see no reason to as that's $150 in savings which is alot. You could just keep it or, you put it elsewhere to improve some parts. Frankly, not much you can do to improve the performance of that build atm, without caring about looks. If you do however want to put some of the money saved into the build ill go with this PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

What kind of fps would you expect with a monitor like this? https://pcpartpicker.com/user/bimmington/saved/#view=jJ7NGX

Unless you care about looks (its a valid reason) and a bit better performance over a good HSF then no.
