I should of purchased a bigger 1, it was only meant for 1 monitor really but it can support the weight of 2 as its thick tempered glass, well fingers crossed anyway.

I have one question though and it's the quality of the movies. I feel like it could look better? I know there isn't any 1440p content except Timescape; only thing I found online. I had my bluray drive installed and I had to download a trial program of CyberLink PowerDVD 13, because it was the only way to view my bluray movies. I popped in Game of Thrones and it looked good, viewing Netflix looked good, and downloaded a movie, and it looked good; but not amazing like my games. Is this because it's all HD/1080p content that is being upscaled to 1440p? Or should I try to calibrate my monitor?


If your downloading torrents it's because they are 700mb sizes and not really even 1080p or even 720p, they are (I'm drawing a blank on the correct term) repacks? If you set your player to original resolution you will notice how small they are. Basically it's like 800x400 resolution stretched to fit your screen. If you want true 1080p downloads they are like 35gig, 720p are around 15gig, so yeah, pretty decent quality really for 700mb files, save the big downloads for good movies is my advice smile.gif
If you download SD you get SD, HD you get HD. I don't think anyone is downloading 700mb movies expecting 1080p.

@Doug-E-Square I noticed the same thing on my screen. 1080p movie looks good but not great, I think it is because it is being upscaled.

No one can answer that for you, what's more important to you.. resolution or smoothness? With these 1440p you get a mixture of both. 2160p would probz be pretty damn sweet to look at tho.

What GPU would you be using? Will you be gaming on it? What kinds of games?
