I think you missed the 144hz and AAA games part though. I had a 1060 for about a year and yeah, it can get between 70-100 on lower settings on mostly modern games, but I don't think it fits this...

Possibly true, depending on where he lives. I sold my old computer that had a 500gb hd, AMD Phenom II processor, GTX 460 and 8gb RAM for $300 back in March-ish. As long as you put 'can run fortnite...

If you're wanting high-ultra settings for AAA at 144hz, you'll probably need at least a 1070 / 1070ti. What's your budget for upgrades? I would also suggest adding another 8gb of RAM. An SSD will...

Theoretically, if your model is good enough (not biased) then the difference should be relatively negligible. If you're overfitting, then a different seed might make your model look really good or...

I think you'll find a good 27" that fits your needs. My 24" BenQ was $250 amazon prime full price, and the 1440p 27" a few days ago was $300 on sale. I might be convinced to get another too, not...

Oh good, I waited until April 2018. Although, I guess that means I bought components starting in March too... Yeah I have a bad habit of picking the worst times to buy things
