This is for anyone else thinking about 4k monitor and not upgrading to a 1440p and waiting to upgrade to a 2160p when release. Well check this out the price is crazy. You can buy a brand new car from the show room lol
It's free at the moment on Origin and brings back some very fond memories. Back in 2002 this was my first real introduction to multiplayer FPS. I could easily spend 10 hours a day playing it and not get bored. Never really had the same affinity with a game since.
Guys does any one know. Am still waiting for my monitor but say i get one with a yellow tint and then i use someones profile that they had the same yellow tint. Now say i bought another 2 monitors and they both have blue tint. Then the profile wont work right since you can only add one profile to all three monitors is this right Edited by FlyingSolo - 11/7/12 at 7:31am

I believe you can use different color profiles for each monitor, at least that is how it seemed to be when I applied a profile to one of mine.
I've been doing 1440p now for about a month and no way can I go back to 1080p. The gaming is amazing at this res...
Monitor: Samsung S27A850D
GPU: GTX 670 4GB
So far, my main observations:
1. A 3/4GB card *really* is better than a 2GB card. When I first got the Samsung 850D monitor, I had a GTX580 2GB card. It played fairly well at 1440p, better than I thought it would, for sure ... but in Skyrim (heavily modded Skyrim) it would regularly do the stutter dance here and there and in areas with lots of textures.
After I switched to a GTX670 4GB card, the difference was quite noticeable in regards to reduction of hiccups and stuttering. The 670 card being way more fluid and consistent. So far, I haven't found a game that makes it work too hard (Mostly play Skyrim, Dragon Age 2, Syndicate and the Freespace 2 Open mod).
Also, when I had the GTX 580 2GB card, I would get some strange OpenGL error messages when playing Freespace 2 Open at 1440p and with all the high res visuals (mediaVPS) enabled, resulting in my having to back down some of the quality/texture settings to play at all. Once I got the 4GB :
Freespace 2 Open @ 1440p / all MediaVPS enabled / Single GTX 670 4GB
Also, for those who might be interested in how Skyrim plays at 1440p and with a GTX 580 2GB:
Best monitor ever. Was going to go with the 970 but can't live without VESA mounts. Also considered Korean but wanted all the pro level color management options, OSD functionality and warranty and all. I took the first 850D back cause of backlight bleed (local from MicroCenter) but luckily, my second one was perfect.
