Friends, I play from time to time games on 1080P on high / ultra details. Plan to rebuild my mini ITX build. Would this GPU work for 144HZ? Ultrawide? EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti XC Black Gaming

if it wont work, which would you suggest

I am still thinking of what monitor to buy.

Which resolution?

2560 x 1080 or 3440 x 1440.

And 144Hz panels are quite expensive.

Either way, a GTX 1660Ti will not be able to sustain over 100fps on a lot of games in each of those resolutions, especially at ultra settings.

144Hz gaming requires the whole build be part of the solution rather than one individual component. In general the GTX 1660 TI will perform wonderfully on many older titles but many modern AAA games are requiring beefier cards at even 1080p / 60fps let alone 100fps plus. Carefully research titles, group the "must performs" on one side, research benchmarks and pick the GPU for the job. Look at average performance across a range of games, some will miss the mark, others will not and then decide whether to stick with the choice or move up one notch.
