Depends on what settings your using for quality and resolution to reach whatever frame rate target you want.

There isn't a fixed answer since your the one in charge of the settings. So you'll always be able to switch which part is limiting performance.

What you should be looking at is if the parts have acceptable performance for what you want.

Im going for 1440p 144fps and i guess the quality will depend on the game

1440p@144hz is rough to run.

You actually hit higher quality settings at 4k on a 60hz monitor because of how many less pixels your pushing.

And more then a few titles any CPU struggles to push frame rates that high.

So don't be surprised if the settings end up lowered more then you might think.
