AMD Radeon RX 580 / Core i7-7700K @ 4.20GHz

At 1440p, RX 580 can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is clear that the RX 580 is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. The price/performance ratio is excellent for RX 580 against the competition in budget mid-range cards. In terms of memory, the RX 580 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN BLACK / Core i7-4770K @ 3.50GHz

In terms of cost, pricing clearly is a genuine issue here and the price of GTX TITAN BLACK is simply ridiculous. At 1440p, GTX TITAN BLACK can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is worth noting that the GTX TITAN BLACK is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the GTX TITAN BLACK 's 6144 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. This combination between GTX TITAN BLACK and Intel Core i7-4770K @ 3.50GHz has less than 8% bottleneck in many games and is perfect match to avoid FPS loss. This combination between GTX TITAN BLACK and Intel Core i7-4770K @ 3.50GHz is a perfect match to avoid FPS loss.
