    Just as the title reads... have some extra cash and looking to upgrade graphics card and monitor here soon.

    Of all places I saw these in Costco (yes, I'm a Costco member). The picture quality looks gorgeous and I'm curious how the curved shape of the monitor might affect the game and what resolution you'd play the game on.

    I haven't had any problems so far but if you're looking for "proven" quality Samsung makes a pretty decent version

    4k is also a lame buzzword to describe any resolution 4,096x2,160 pixels +

    So technically speaking the Acer is 2k +


    Human eye has a hard time distinguishing between 720p and 1080p...anything else is a bit overkill IMO...unless you're playing DFO in 3D on a 57 inch TV...in which case...knock yourself out.

    If you want to spend close to $400+ on something you wont notice feel free to check out:

    Another edit: Better have a sweet GPU also.

    The difference between 1080p and 4k is pretty drastic, especially when you are doing something that isn't a full screen game/movie. That said, I would never suggest getting a 4k monitor under 28".

    This is where I have to agree to disagree. The difference between 2k and 4k is NOT noticeable. Unless you have 40/40 vision.

    Oh I know. The OP was asking about 4k monitors so I thought I'd point it out. I personally have a 29inch in 2560x1080 and love it.

    I just had this discussion with my brother in law. He's looking to get a gaming PC and wants a 4k monitor 'cause that's apparently the cool thing to do. Please tell me if I gave him the right advice because these are the rules I abide by. I told him when I bought my gaming PC I settled for some decent $100 18 inch ish monitor because I play every game in low qualities since I'm playing against other players most of the time anyways. I told him if he was going to watch movies and maybe some cool single player games, then to just buy a badass 4k tv and just pipeline the image when needed to watch the desired 4k especially for football season. I told him if he wants to play online games against other players, a 4k monitor could make things look pretty but it would force him to buy a really expensive machine that he may not be able to justify.

    I have a 34" 3440x1440 ips and i love it but i need a new gpu my 780 does not cut it gonna buy a gtx 1080 later.
    Good thing is that the screen scales 2560x1080 perfect so i can run that aswell for heavy games.

    Says the 20 year old ish anime man-child who apparently fell asleep in English 101.
    The difference between 720 & 1080 != the difference between 720 & 2k-4k just like the difference between 2k & 4k is like the difference between 720 & 1080.

    Now go drop some acid and watch Sailor Moon in your moms basement.
