    my point was simply that whether the raw horsepower is overkill or not isnt really the point at all. he could spend the same amount & go from 24" @1080 to 27" @1440 display, & get a slightly slower (but not at all slow) card that would still easily maintain fps @refresh rate.

    could still downscale older games...& just use AA for new ones...but have a nicer monitor. its more level-headed advice than going for Ti "just because"

    1080 Ti SLI is required for 1080p 144 Hz in any modern game. I have 1080 SLI and it's barely enough for my PG258Q 240 Hz. The minimum frame rate still dips pretty low.

    There´s no cpu today that doesn´t bottleneck two 1080´s in Sli when running at 1080p 144hz.

    That's only in some games like Dota 2 and GTA V. The majority of games peg the GPU at 99% when maxed out with a reasonable 4x MSAA if available.

    Not overkill if you're looking to get high framerates. Been using my 1080 at 1080p for months now, though I do always try to aim for 120 fps, especially in MP titles.

    Not pointless anymore IMO especially if you want to run all games at max settings without any framedrops.

    I thought my 980Ti would be overkill but far from it, already need to make cutbacks in some games (though small ones) to keep 1080p75 solid.

    And like has been said if native 1080p leaves GPU headroom then VSR up to 4K and enjoy superb antialiasing and detail.
    DSR/VSR at the latest made the "1080p pointless GPU" debate, well, pointless imo.

    However like someone suggested above getting 1070/1080 + 1440p monitor could be another way to spin it, but you can't expect maxed settings with a locked framerate, be it 60, 75 let alone higher, anymore in all cases.

    With 1080Ti and 1080p you can, for some time. Like also said games progress and what has headroom today barely manages tomorrow and is obsolete the day after.

    If your using extra hardware forced filters within nvidia inspector, you might get away with it, personally I would use dsr + and taking the settings as far as possible while maintaining reasonable frame rates.

    Even sli is not overkill for full HD max settings and 144 fps, i wont reach that even in all games.
