Well, after reading this thread and pretty much scouring the net researching what monitor I'm going to buy for my next gaming rig I went and preordered this one from b&h, it's 999 there and since they charge international credit cards instantly on preorders (as opposed to us cards where they only charge when they ship) you can say my monitor is paid for and there's no turning back.
I was torn between the asus rog swift gsync monitor that's taking forever to come out (1440p and 3d) the samsung 4k super deal they is ud590 and this one.
They all had their pros and cons, for a while the 4k seemed to be the obvious choice but I designed my build around a mini tower case I really liked that would look really cool on top or my bedroom desk (a supposed to under it over the rug) and this case only fits one gpu, not only that but I'm not the biggest fan of sli and I don't want to have to put another cent into this rig for at least 3 years so I spoiled myself and went with a titan black signature superclocked from evga, (tshirt!) And that card, as beefy as it is, cannot drive a 4k monitor on its own at descent settings, even if it somewhat does, it won't in a couple of years.
Then you have the amazing gamegasmic asus rog swift that....never happened, I was going to buy that for sure but whoa did they drop the ball there, it still isn't out and no announcement as to when, you can't even preorder. TN panel, nyche market, 1440p when 4k is close and still no announcement, seriously, I hope it sells well.
Then this one, which will be driven perfectly by my gpu, maybe not at ridiculous fps but the monitor is only 60mhz so it doesn't matter much, I also always wanted to try surround gaming but always figured the wife would give me the big "all that just for gaming" look, but then I show her the three monitors I wanted and when she saw this one she instantly said "that's going to look awesome in in our room" and I'm saying "right?" Actually thinking of how awesome titnfall and star citizen are going to look. Yes, 60mhz may be a compromise for some but I rather get more viewing area plus I don't even have the gpu power to get crazy frame rates at higher settings.
What do you guys recon I'll be getting at full resolution in this monitor with an overclocked titan black? (I7 4770k, 16gb g.skills) in bf4 at ultra?
Anyways, that's my first post too so. Hello, been a long time rider but never made an account not sure why but since reading this whole thread was a big part on the purchase of the only missing part of my new rig, I decided to make a post about it.
