Hey guys I'm building a new pc to play overwatch and some work application. Some light photoshop and Web Design. I'm going to be using my girlfriends old 2012 imac 27" for the monitor. Just wondering what would be a good GPU to run overwatch on high-ultra for this monitor.

Thanks

To give you an idea of what you can expect, I can give you two game examples that have very similar recommended system requirements: my sig rig can play both Need for Speed Most Wanted 2012 and Need for Speed Rivals at 2520x1575 (NVIDIA Dynamic Super Resolution enabled) with a solid non-stop 60 FPS and super-low frametimes. It's always butter-smooth, and I have all settings as high as they go.

Interestingly, I have two available resolutions up from 2520x1575: the first one is 2910x1819 and the 2nd one is 3360x2100 and both of them result in poor performance whereas I get super butter-smooth performance with 2520x1575. It's awesome. Except, now that I brought this up, I should mention that 1680x1050 looks better in Most Wanted 2012 while 2520x175 looks better in Rivals.

Again, those resolutions were made possible by NVIDIA's Dynamic Super Resolution.

Anyway, so yeah, I think a GTX 970 should be more than good enough.

I run my GTX 980ti Classy in EPIC mode and it looks beautiful. XD but I am sure you can get away with a 960 and above. For higher resolution I would go 970 OC and over but that is just me.

I'm running on a 780 at near max settings on a 1440p Gsync monitor with 144hz refresh rate and can maintain above 60FPS most of the time. If you are not content on waiting for the 1070 to come out then I would suggest buying a 970 or try and find someone trying to sell a second hand 980/980 TI for super cheap.
