Choosing the right monitor/resolution?

Hellooo.. while waiting for the release of the GEFORCE RTX 3070, I am looking for the right monitor to pair with the build below.
I originally aimed to play in 1440p, but have in the mean time kinda falled in love with this monitor Predator XB3, which is a 4k monitor..

Question is.. will my setup below, be able to sustain 4 k gaming in the coming years? Or should I, for the sake of future proofing, stick with a 1440p screen..
As you can probably guess, based on above, I am not really dead set on 4k gaming.. Have only gotten a decent offer on the predator screen, and I love the design (specifically the "blinders").

What do you think?

Thx in advance!

That’s an amazing monitor but the ideal card to go with it is the 3080. So if you’ve got the budget to upgrade then go for it 🙂👍

The configurator let's you pick the H1 and a 3080! Of course, the PSU will be below the minimum recommended
I’ll feed that back to the powers that be, there’s no way the H1 is going to be able to support the H1

I’m completely wrong as usual, so long as you’ve got a compatible PSU an aftermarket card should fit!

So you would need a 750w PSU or preferably 850w. It’s would need to be an SFF PSU to fit the case.

I just checked the configurator and the 3090 is not allowed due to it's size...so it seems the 3080, size-wise is okay. The H1 can take GPUs up to, and I quote from the NZXT site:

"GPU Clearance:
  • Dimension - 305mm x 128mm; 265mm x 145mm
  • Thickness - Up to 2.5 Slots"
The 3080 is 285mm in length so it would fit..just.

Just a shame the H1 doesn't come with the option for a higher-powered PSU for it's integrated PSU

Hi guys.. thx for all the replies..
The 3080 can physically fit into the h1, but for temperature reasons it seems like a bad idea ( mainly bcs the inverted exhaust air - see test here if interested).

What I gather from above, is basically, go with a 1440p screen or chose another case better suited for the 3080.. (though the inversed air exhaust, a fit seems difficult if you want a SFF gamer.. )

and yeah, you likely have to replace the build in psu if you wanna go with the 3080.. but then again, overruled by temperature concerns
