4k sony 50-65" or dell u3014 surround

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Conundrum,

Working on Sli Titans considering tri SLI. Have 3 30 Dell's U3& 014 monitors and went into the store and BOOM, saw the new 4k sony 65"

Now question.... My resolution is 8050 x 1600.

What's better? What I have now or do these new 4k tv displays not work with a pc. And if I did get this. Would it look ok? Granted $3300 would resell for let's say 2800 or so.

If we take the money aside(it's an issue but ****s and giggles) is it worth it. Or is it better to wait for a monitor at 4k. For example, 30" 1600p monitors are better than a TV/LCD.

What's your thoughts and opinions. I have not properly benched. But something tells me videos and games would look better on this than my 3 30".

Let, the discussion begin smile.gif

The Dell's have obvious ghosting vs. competitors & are wide gamut=inaccurate & over-saturated colors in games unless you use the sRGB mode.

The Sony will be easier to power, have better colors for games & be more immersive since it is bigger & bezel free, however it only does 4k at 30hz. Best to get the Asus 31.5" since it can do 60hz over DP @4k if you want a 4k monitor or wait for some 60hz 4k TV's.

Keep you setup up mate, those tvs can only run at 30 FPS due to output limitation, so its pointless for gaming, plus your current setup has more Pixels then a 4k TV anyway

Thanks guys, +rep for all ( now I only need to get to 30, so I can sell my old hardware before I upgrade tongue.gif)

Is my 3 30" monitors that bad?I run it always in SRGB mode and am really trying to maximize what I have. One of my main issues is that my damn table is 6ft and the monitors sit really close so its very immersive. Bezel correction is 8050 x 1600 and I like it, but with the peripheral when you watch a movie in VLC, the movie is seriously distorted. For example putting the game of thrones on in 1080p if you do a custom crop / aspect ratio at 768:160 or 805:160 everyone looks like midgets.

This can get VERY annoying. However, when you play a game it's great. I have not done any graphics work as I am not a graphics artist, but it is VERY VERY annoying. If the price of a 4k 30" monitor was less than $1,200 I may consider even getting three of those. But for god sakes I don't even think 3 Titans would be enough for that resolution. I would be murdered.

What do you guys think on the monitors?
Samsung 65" 3840 x 2160 120hz

LGA 84" 240hz Not going to lie would never get this

Seiko 50" monitor
System wise...

Seiki 39" monitor only $699 how does that make ANY SENSE?

A. Do I upgrade the monitor or System now or Wait?

B. If I do upgrade, do I wait for LGA 2011 or go for a different setup?

C. If I go ahead and upgrade should I get a 3rd Titan?

D. I saw a 4k 55 / 65" TV at Best Buy and am seriously contemplating ditching the 3 30" monitors and instead getting the 4k. Is this better? Or is it not? If I do go this route that
55 & 65" 4k Sony TV, is this actually better than my 3 30" 1600p monitors? If it is, will it work on a PC right, since if you look at the other monitors a 30" TV vs a 30" IPS can't compare, the PC monitor will always win.

E. I don't mean to hit on for this thread, but I am really trying to future proof / maximize performance.

I would just wait for now, I very much prefer the three screens over a single big one. All just personal preference. If I were you I would wait for three 4k screens(30"-39"), just need something to power them and over 30fps.

That's what I am hoping to get in the future.

You want my opinion where what you do, Sell you 3 Monitors and get 3 27" QNIX QX2710 Evolution 2, its 300$ each, and its the best of both worlds its a 120Hz 1440p monitor, then go ahead and buy a 4k television for movies, The Seiko is good enough, your current set up is worth around 1500-2000$, this will cost you 1800$.

Again the problem with 4k Tvs is that it only goes 30Hz you will be stuck at that, and the new 4k monitors can only do 60Hz with MST(It emulates Eyefinity/Suurrand, to make the Pc think its 2 monitors rather then one, it greatly increases input lag tho).

I really like the 30 of Real Estate though, it sounds odd but once you have it... It's amazing
