  1. Hi mate, Thanks for your reply! I didn't mean to record anything AVR also stands for Audio/Video Reciever. I plan to use it as active drive for my passive speakers in 5.2.1 Atmos. Now the setup I want is quite complex, as I want gsync to work in nvidia's "3D surround" 7680 X 1440 resolution (via displayports in very certain output mix in SLI as I've described), while having an HDMI Audio to AVR + HDMI Video to the ACC monitor (without audio to ACC monitor). I've described in detail the setup and connections, let me know there is anything else specific you wish to clarify. Thanks again!
  2. Got you, thanks for the tip! would be really cool if you could help me on another thing I just posted minutes ago, but don't want raise it here to hijack this thread BTW, Daslim, I recommend ASUS motherboards they are really great...
  3. Hi So you're saying that it won't (or just very slightly) improve boot and loading times as well, but only will for longer actions? I've had in mind that OS boot and game loads have large transfers.
  4. Don't want to intrude with Slottr's help here, especially since I agree with most of what he said Just want to add in my 2 cents that I think that the SSD should be NVMe because it's just another ~70-80$ and you boost your OS & Gaming loading times by 2-3X at least, and that's always nice. also Slottr you're completely right about the GPU, but since OP wants to possibly upgrade his monitor to 4K in the near future than maybe 2070/2080 is a smarter choice for the most probable near-future upgrade....
  5. Hi everyone, Been struggling with this plan for few months now, not really able to make a solid conclusion from answers I've been getting from both nvidia support and another nvidia fan forum. I'll try to make it as short as possible, and I'd really appreciate if you'd be so kind to help an old gamer who just wants to get back to some good old gaming after a long while... and with some $$$ to spend to make it happen :-D I want to build a gaming rig with 2 1070's I have (Asus Strix 8GB OC), an ASUS PRIME Z370-A motherboard and an AVR which supports the higher-end lossless HDMI 2.0 audio formats such as Dolby Atmos. I want to have 3 monitors for gaming stacked from 3 side-by-side 27" 1440p GSYNC enabled monitors. they will be connected in a mode called '3D surround' for a full 7680 X 1440 resolution. most importantly and here's the bait here, I would wish that while gaming in 7680 X 1440 resolution on these 3 monitors, the effects of GSYNC would be seen on all 3 monitors. Now finally throw in an additional 'accessory monitor' right in the middle above the '3D surround' monitors. the accessory monitor will be connected from AVR's HDMI output so that I would be able to get the lossless audio by connecting one of the 1070's HDMIs into the AVR. Now here are some basic facts which I've found on official nvidia support sites: 1. GTX 1070 supports Dolby Atmos via HDMI, so should be no problem here getting the lossless audio to the AVR. 2. 2way SLI GTX 1070 supports: 3D surround for 3 GSYNC monitors via 2Xdisplayport on 1070 #1 and 1Xdisplayport on 1070 #2, with additional 'accessory monitor' via HDMI on 1070 #1 or 1070 #2. and GSYNC effects while gaming should appear on all 3 surround monitors. There are other mixes of the GPUs outputs to be able to connect the monitors in '3D surround' but I need to use displayport if I want to get GSYNC... I took the 2 facts above from these links: 1. https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2796 2. https://www.geforce.com/hardware/technology/surround/system-requirements Actually, not sure I got the correct fact #2 above, because nvidia support told me something different from what I understood from the 2nd link above, and they are very confusing with their answers. I can share their answers if it can contribute. So my desired monitor setup: #1 - 3D surround GSYNC monitor: displayport #1 on 1070 #1 > GSYNC monitor #2 - 3D surround GSYNC monitor: displayport #2 on 1070 #1 > GSYNC monitor #3 - 3D surround GSYNC monitor: displayport #1 on 1070 #2 > GSYNC monitor #4 - Accessory Monitor: HDMI #1 on 1070 #1 or #2 > AVR HDMI input > AVR HDMI output > Regular monitor Total of 4 monitors; 3 monitors for 3D surround and all of them running with GSYNC while gaming at 7680 X 1440. 1 monitor as accessory monitor. I want to eventually get the following 3 functionalities, if it's possible. Dolby Atmos on AVR driven from my 1070's HDMI into AVR HDMI INPUT 3D surround monitors, all 3 running with GSYNC in games(my monitors are listed here as supported: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/products/g-sync-monitors/specs/)) Accessory monitor DRIVEN FROM AVR HDMI OUTPUT acting as regular monitor not belonging to 3D surround monitors(I DON'T MIND if the accessory monitor will be primary or not, AS LONG AS it doesn't degrade/misfunction the 3D surround monitors performance nor their GSYNC capabilities) It could be really awesome if I could somehow magically find an opportunity to test this :) I really hope to get any help to be able to arrive to more concrete conclusions.
