Infinite Fraction

Hey guys, I need some help with the mathematics. I calculated it using computer and it converges to 1.73202714. I'm not so sure about it because when I compute I assumed that if x become LARGE, then f(x)=1. Is my assumption correct? and is there a way to find the answer without using computer?

Math Focus: Mainly analysis and algebra
Clearly, for all positive $x$ we have $f(x) \gt x$ because every term (everywhere) is positive.

How about my assumption? Is it even converge?
