I want to play most of the games today with high - very high settings with consistency of 60fps and up, and i don't know if i should go for gtx 1060 or gtx 1070ti and what monitor specs should i buy. Pls help.

Whats the budget? Have you considered 144 hz? (don't say no unless you have experienced it in person.) Here are a few solid CPU/GPU/monitor combos

Ryzen 3 2200G/Integrated graphics/720p 60 or 1080p 30

Ryzen 5 2600/RX 580 or GTX 1060/1080p 60 or 75

i5 9600k or 2600[x]/GTX 1070 Ti (the 2060 will come out in a week or two with the same performance)/1440p 144

2600/2080 Ti/4k 60

Hello, i haven't tried 144 hz before, but i have experienced using 120hz laptop. Is the difference noticeable betweeen 4k and 1080p? Could you give me a combo for intel, since i'm not really techie and i don't want to overclock cpu and gpu. i just want to turn on my computer and play. The budget would be 1000 - 1300 USD.

Great. The difference is massively noticeable between 1080p and 1440p, but not so much from 1440p 4k. There is also a noticeable difference between 60 and 144 FPS, making 1440p 144 Hz the sweet spot for games, as if you go all the way to 4k 60 you have to sacrifice performance and lower settings without a $3000 PC.

Something like this would do what you need. Yes, the price doesnt include a OS, Monitor or Peripherals. Notice that I recomended the RTX 2060 (Relases 1/15/19 for $350). Basically giving you slightly better performance of a GTX 1070TI for less.

Thanks I'll consider this build, may I ask what is the alternative AMD graphics card for RTX 2060? I just found out that it's much easy to buy a freesync monitor here in my country, and I think gsync monitor is a little more pricey than freesync. Also, do I really need this freesync or gsync feature? Is it noticeable.

No need, nvidia now supports freesync, with the latest driver.

Whoever’s downvoting this is wrong, as of yesterday at CES nvidia announced that they would support adaptive sync on select monitors. You can use it on almost any standard fresymc monitor however, compatibility is not confirmed (should still work)

it dose cool. that should bring sales up on freesync monitors, just hope the prices dont go up alot i had to return my monitor becuase it was acting strange and i am looking at a 1440p 75hz freesync monitor witch i think will be fine for my rx 580 8gb

Only thing AMD has right now is the Vega 56 or 64 and they are pretty expensive. Later today AMD might release info on its NAVI lineup 9am PT. I've never used freesync or gsync. I jumped onto the 144hz prior to the whole gsync/freesync thing.
