okay I have a GTX 770

so question time:
what factor better is the 990 to the 770?
Will it fit in the same slot as the current 770?
I have a high output power box, so it should just use the same wiring?

sorry most of my hardware knowledge is old, worked with software too long :)

how many monitors do you use Bruce, and how does your current card cope with AC ?

If your PC case is a full tower it will fit no problems, the 980 is a lot longer than the 770 so if the HDD cage limits the length of GPU that may be a problem. I would also think you will need a 650 watt PSU and the 980 will require 2 x 12v  power cable plugs as well , so you will need adapters if not already on the existing power supply. It will be a huge improvement on your current card performance wise.

I went from a 780 to a 980 (with triples), and the increase wasn't that massive. But the 780 was quite a beast for its generation. But from a 770, you should get quite a nice boost.

I'm not that old!

I think from memory you have a smaller box, but luck has it I have a really big super duper tower here if you go down the 1070 path.  RX-580 is a nice card to think about if your still running single screen.

Who knows about monitors ? with 144Hz should I be looing at for example 1920x1080 http://www.msy.com.au/tas/glenorchy/peripherals/16463-aoc-24-g2460pf-1ms-1920x1080-144hz-free-sync-spk-has-d-sub-dl-dvi-hdmi-dp-gaming-monitor.html
or 2560x1440 https://www.pccasegear.com/products/36955/acer-predator-xb241h-24in-144hz-g-sync-gaming-monitor
Single or triple? You'll want Gsync not freesync for your 1080ti, the first one you listed is designed for amd freesync. If you're sticking to the 24 inch or less 1080p resolution is fine, nice at super high refresh rate. If you're gonna go up to 27 inch or more then 1440p is a must in my opinion.
Have a look at this video

triple,  I linked the wrong one first, was meant to be a g sync one,    I was thinking 3 x 27 inch at 1440 might make everything all skippy ? ,  even though it would probably be way nicer to view ?

Phil , you could test your FPS at the higher res by going into Nvidea Control Panel and setting DSR ( Dynamic Super Resolution) factor to x4 which will give the same RES as a 4K Monitor 3840 x 2160. Do a before and after test with AC benchmark. 3840x2160 =8,294,400  4K single screen total res.  2560x3=7680    7680x1440=11,059,200  triple screen res. This is a single monitor test but will give a good indication of your system abilities.
I am using a 55inch 4K UHD 200HZ TV as my monitor, that sits 75cm from my eyes, with Track IR5 that give me approx. another 90deg of vision. I am very impressed at the quality of the graphics it is virtually photo realistic and almost like looking through the windscreen of a real car.
