Yeah but it has display port 1.2 so it's a moot point. This is an older monitor however.

I agree. No HDMI 2.0.. no purchase.

That should be the standard for any new 4K video playback or display device.

4k monitor for gaming?!? I've been reading about gaming monitors and they seem to go for the 2560 x 1440 resolution with 144Hz overclockable to 165 Hz and g-synch if you have a high end NVIDIA graphics card.

Can you steer me to articles describing 4k gaming monitor set-ups? Want to make the most use of the GTX 1080 graphics card being put into a new gaming computer build - is 4k an option with comparable performance to the specs listed above or keep looking for a slickdeal on a monitor with those specs to get the most out of the GTX 1080 card?

Thanks!

Basically a a different cable to get the same results -- 6 of one and it depends on what your are connecting (another of the long line of format wars -- XB/PS, Mac/PC, StarWars/StarTrek). If you are going from a computer GPU to a monitor Display Ports are more common, if you are connecting to Home Theater device HDMI is more common, though converter plugs are available for $10-20

DP can pass exactly the same signals and maybe a bit more/faster/cheaper.
DP1.2 and HDMI2.0 can handle and pass along the same frequency. DP1.3 is even higher/faster/bigger.

Well, you won't be able to view 4K at 144hz or 165hz. The max 4K will allow is 60hz. Some people have been able to overclock to 65hz, I've seen 71hz, but the monitor took a dive soon after. I would advise to stay away from 4K right now as even the OS can look a little strange.Even one GTX 1080 will not run 4K at 60fps consistently with maxed out settings, v-sync on. SLI would do it, I'm sure but nVidia is trying to steer away from SLI altogether. So, 1440p is the sweet spot right now. At incredible frame rates (144-165) with a VA or IPS G-sync display, you'll think it looks absolutely stunning!

Thank you for this insight! I noticed you did not mention the TN panel display type - which is $500 vs $717 at the 27 inch size - is IPS panel worth the extra $217?

Also I'm actually considering dropping down to 24 inch screen instead of 27 inch - it will be used primarily in a dorm room after summer time (hopefully not too much! Wink). Do the same specs apply at the smaller screen size or do I need to restart my research all over again for the sweet spot specs for getting most out of the GTX 1080 from a 24 inch screen?

Appreciate your knowledge sharing! Smilie

This. I was starting to build a new PC and bought a Samsung 4k monitor, U28E590D, and I really regret it now after seeing what it takes to drive it. I never even hooked it up and I think I'm going to see what I can get on Craigslist for it. Stay away from 4k gaming at this point unless you have lots of cash to drop.

4k is worthless for gaming. You need to have VR or have a 30"+ monitor to be able to notice the difference between 4k and 2k. And 4k is 4x the pixels of 1080p so it's 4x the burden on your graphics card for something that makes no difference for most people. Most mainstream cards (r9 290 and GTX 970) already blow away 1080p even for newer games. The newer cards (GTX 1070 and 1080) do 2k very well and 4k adequately.

The sweet spot in size/performance is 2560x1440p 27" or 1440p Ultrawides (which is basically 2k). Many competitive gamers prize hz over anything else so even on some games, I play at 1080p on my 1440p monitor in order to get a consistent 144hz.

the higher the resolution the harder it is to distinguish things on the screen (they appear smaller), especially when comparing to a same physical size display of a lower resolution. I primarily play fps and rpgs, and for fps games larger rez makes it harder to hit enemies, especially in games where headshots deal extra dmg. I prefer 1080p on a 32" display. makes it super easy to headshot fools. my current monitor tv is long in the tooth and the only comparable upgrade for me is a $1000 acer predator 1080p 21:9 gsync model

There are plenty of IPS available in this price range, for example the 27UD68 from LG is $499 regular price and often seen for $400.

No way would I pay $500 for TN or $700 for IPS. Even this deal ($400 for TN) is too much.
