I want to build a new PC for gaming (and some professional use). I am aiming towards the x34p monitor which is 3440x1440 120 fps. This resolution and fps are great for me, so I don't see any reason to wait for some new screen to come out (HDR for 2k$ is not an option).
The problem is the GPU. Is it true that only RTX 2080 and above would deliver this frame rate at this resolution? Because I am not a big fan of ray tracing and would gladly wait for some alternative (as long as it will happen this year). Should I wait for Navi GPUs? Do you think its going to deliver 120 fps at 3440x1440? Will there be an Nvidia lunch any time soon?
Is there a reason for me to hold it for a little longer (so that I wouldn't have to pay for ray tracing that I am not going to use), or is there nothing in the horizon that might be an alternative?
