Definitely not an apple or orange. It is a matter of opinion and to really talk to your opinion i would have to know your reasoning. If it is purely pixel real estate i would say there are superior triple monitor solutions for a 3rd of the cost. If it is PPI i would say there is WAY better Laptop panels that can be retrofitted. If you do not like 120hz and prefer 60hz i would say some people still like records instead of CDs tongue.gif . If you simply like the most expensive monitor then i will say this is a common misconception that the most expensive is the best. There is NO apple and orange comparison here they are both monitors with the same variables. I was merely speaking towards the value of the purchase and currently this new monitor is low on the value chain. Another factor is the overall size, My 27" is definitely on the BIG end for me and really i think 23-24" is the sweet spot. I deal with 27" due to the overall quality of the monitor VS 24" alternatives. This new guy has crossed a size line for me as 32" is just to big of a PC display for me. Same thing with recent cell phones 5" is ridiculous but i will deal with 4.5".

Bottom line is yes there is opinions here but we are all talking about monitors and there is NO apples and oranges complex.

Correct me if I am wrong though there are no 1440p or higher panels that do 120hz natively, IE not overclocked?

So someone looking to not mess with it out of the box has a choice of a high refresh TN or a high pixel density low refresh IPS(or PLS)?

A Lotus Elise and a Bugatti Veyron are both cars, but one could say those are an apple and an orange.




To me, I don't get a noticeable increase in quality with the refresh rate, but I do with vastly superior pixel density and color accuracy and viewing angles.

I would not buy this monitor because its the most expensive, but I love the increased pixel density. And having done a triple monitor setup, I would prefer a single 4K screen. I had a Dell U3011 before so a monitor of that size wouldn't bother me.

Asus has showed two 4K monitors but no other info

I bet you they are going to cost you an arm and a leg to buy

Yeah, I probably wont actually buy one till they drop to $2k - I considered doing 1440p eyefinity but that would be even more brutal on my gpus.

What I really want is a 4k projector for under 5k biggrin.gif

One can dream cant they

So I am probably going to be going with one of the Qnix after watching some of those debezeling videos. Now the question is, how do I power this thing? Originally thinking Titan for overhead room and expandability but have also been kicking around the idea of a 4gb+ 780 if I can find one. Thoughts?

A 780 at 4gb would be perfectly fine to push most games at 120fps at 2560x1440p. I currently have two GTX570s in SLI and i can run most games at max setting(except for anti-aliasing) at 120fps to match the hz. A GTX780 is going to be about double(or more) the graphics power i have. Right now a titan is a big wast of money due to the 780 coming out since they are only 10-15% difference in benchmarks and the 780 has easily been overclocked to match the titan. It has also been shown in many review that without any anti-aliasing 2gb of video memory is good for 1440p so having 4gb+(6 might be ideal for triple monitor ie 2gb per monitor) is optimal for more than one of these guys. With a triple monitor setup running 2560x1440p@120hz(possibly) you may want to think about eventually getting a second 780 to keep 120hz in most games and if you even want to mess with 3D settings.

I understand that AA may be unnecessary at this resolution but I want to be able to push 8x AA if not 16x AA while still doing 120hz. That is why I was considering the Titan, but if they release a beefed up 780 with more vRam then I will probably jump on that instead. I have a thread over in the nVidia forums trying to figure out the best way to do this and the consensus seems to be 780s waterblocked in SLI
