450 for a 6950xt seems a little ambitious..maybe it'll happen but maybe not? you might be better off finding a used unit, that way you can also cherry pick for coil whine. my 6900xt whines badly. I hate it. also, I feel like the viewsonic monitor has really high motion clarity but it's not a very beautiful display at all. low res and just really mid for everything except some super sweaty gaming. I feel like your average quality of life would be better using a more balanced monitor? I've been super impressed with the gigabyte m32u, which to me is an excellent high end all purpose display. I think maybe part of what I'm asking is are you really shopping use case here? I know what you're going for with this combo and I feel like it's a pretty niche use.

I've already seen 5 sold at that price on r/Hardwareswap

he's talking about a new one

which games, present or upcoming really justifies investing in newer cards ?

I predict cs2 is going to be the huge competitive title for the year. no surprise there. warzone 2 is dead, overwatch 2 is dead. valorant easy to run, csgo easy to run. cs2 is also getting similar benchmarks to csgo so should be super easy to run too, don't quote me on that though. so that only leaves apex as the only competitive shooter that's difficult to run. to me, none of those titles require a beefy GPU. like you need to be playing above diamond level or top ~1% for those fps dips to really be making a difference in your gameplay. like none of us are that good. if the day ever comes you'll know when your gear is holding you back. anyway there's a lot of AAA titles that are super hard to run but honestly last year I just bought a PS5 to play these titles and call it a day. it's crazy how good the optimization is compared to PCs. anyway, to me the answer is just get a mid tier card (up to a 6950xt i guess) and blow some money on a beautiful display that also is sufficient for gaming. it's about striking a balance, yknow?

one more thing is that you'll usually run into a CPU bottleneck at some point with those high refresh rate 1080p monitors.

Not crazy, i love cherry mx blues, i have like 5 keebs that still use cherry mx blues. and i always looking for something similar when i build a new board. Which is what makes this hobby so awesome you can stick what you like or try different. Recently i have tried other things other cherry mx blue, but i still cannot get past for me personally the satisfying bump in the blue.

I just wanted to update my experience. After returning to the Cherry blues, I gave a second try to the Kailh box whites. This time I've managed to adapt to the them, but it took me several weeks to do it.

Now I'm pretty happy with the box whites and I'm enjoying them more than the blues.

Best wishes.

box whites are definitely better than blues
