I want to buy 1440p screen and a decent GPU, and having about 1500$ budget I chose:

- LG 34UM95 (34", IPS, 3440 x 1440)
- GTX 980 Ti

My current build is:
- Samsung 21,5" TN
- GTX 570 1280MB
- MOBO Asrock P67 pro 3 B3
- 600W power supply
- 8GB RAM
- 2 TB HDD in RAID 0 + 128GB SSD

I'd like to be able to play witcher 3, GTA 5, etc, on ultra settings with decent performance. Currently I basically can't even play these games - too low FPS.

Is this build ok to buy? Is it worth spending this much money? The rest of my build (except for display and gpu) wouldn't be changed.

Again zero info on everything else.
If you want help and input you are going to have to do better then that.

What brand and model PSU? wattage does not tell us anything.

If you have a Corsair CX then you should upgrade that as well as it does not belong in your new system.
Why you should not buy a Corsair CX

And a single GTX 980 Ti wont do 60 FPS+ with max details in the newest games in 3440 x 1440.
You are going to need a second GTX 980 Ti for that.

All right, so maybe another question - having 1500$ budget, what should I buy if I want to:

- play computer games (witcher 3, gta 5, older games)
- programming
- web browsing

Currently I have:
CPU: i5 2500K
MOBO: asrock p67 pro3 b3
GPU: GTX 570 1280MB
HDD: 2TB
SSD: 128GB
Display: 21,5" TN 1080p
Power supply: Corsair 600W

Replace the mediocre Corsair CX600 with an EVGA Supernova G2 750 or 850 watt.

And two GTX 970 cards in SLI would be slightly faster and better then a GTX 980, Ti as long as as the game works with SLI and dont use more then 3,5 GB of VRAM that is.
Or you can do a compromise and drop down to a GTX 980 and add another GTX 980 later.

A GTX 980 Ti cant do every game out there at 3440 x 1440 and with max details and 60 FPS.
You are either going to have to live with lower settings or lower FPS if are going with a monitor with that high of a res.

My two cents; get a 27" 2K res IPS 144HZ monitor (Acer or Asus) and a 980 Ti. Gaming will be great. You can have both for around $1400. Later, when prices drop you can get another 980 Ti and run SLI. I agree with Shilka, you'll need a stronger PSU...eventually.

Thanks for the replies! Will my mobo support this this gpu?

And also, do I have to change the psu to 750W before using gtx980Ti? Wont 600W be enough?

Ive read a lot of benchmarks, they seem to explain that single gtx 980Ti will do 40-60 fps on 3440x1440 of all games with AA turned off and all noticable details maxed out.

You did not see this then so here you go again
Why you should not buy a Corsair CX

Get rid of your CX.
