I’m looking to get into gaming on Ubuntu with looking glass and was wondering if it’s possible / practical with my current build.
Since my system is already 4 years old I’m unsure whether to upgrade what is needed or to just build a new system from scratch.
In case it makes more sense to build new: hope I didn’t do something stupid here
assuming i can reuse the Case, PSU, Cooler.
Thoughts, corrections appreciated.

Where do you live?
Is there a retailer you prefer?
Headset, Keyboard, Mouse,
2 Monitors 1080p, 1 144Hz, 1 60Hz
preferebly no, only if necessary
I don’t think it’s necessary since noise is not issue, I will be using a headset 99% of the time.
Im aiming for 120FPS at Ultra / High, I tend to play around with the graphics settings until I reach 80-200 FPS.
So far im OK with the quality im getting with my current build (except for games like FO4/76 and Arma2,3 wich I don’t understand how to configure to anything above 40FPS)
Im used to 1080 and so far im perfectly content. Im a bit scared to switch to above 1080.
Everytime I upgraded anything display-related (4:3-1024 to 16:9-1080, 1080-60Hz to 1080-144Hz/120Hz, 21" to 24") it was painfull to go back.
Ever since I got my 144Hz monitor I’m incapable of playing on my 60Hz monitor. I dont want to be stuck at possibly low FPS on >1080.
So, very unsure here.
The only genres I dont play are: MMORPGs, MOBAs, racing games and mobile games.
Arma 2, 3 (I prey that one day I may reach >60FPS at 1080 with Antialiasing ON ; ) )
TESV, FO3/4/76, Witcher 3
Oh and I hope to give VR a try soon
