You've adjusted to having an incorrectly bright/saturated monitor. It can be a hard switch but you should make it if you care about accuracy. There's been a couple people going from that monitor to the LG and you are the first one i've seen saying it's worse. The 4K panels are also IPS, so I have a hard time believing they are much different quality wise outside of sheer resolution.

In my opinion, 4K is still a bit much even for 2x 3GB 780Tis. Some games are wanting up to 4GB of VRAM and with newer games I expect this number to raise. Personally, I wouldn't touch 4K without having 2x Titan Blacks or 2x 6GB 780Tis. Linus stated he also prefers 3440x1440 over 4K, and I'm bound to agree. We are at the point of huge diminishing returns, 21x9 is just a better aspect ratio at not much actual quality loss. I feel that 16x9 is slowing going to become the new 4x3.

For reference.
3440 x 1440 = 4,953,600 pixels
3840 x 2160 = 8,294,400 pixels

3440x1440 is already pretty rough to run and 4K is a massive 39% jump beyond that. 3440x1440 is going to be the next "go to" resolution past 1080p and 1440p in my opinion.

Side note: Screw my post above. Just bought the monitor and 2 780Tis. $2500 down the drain.

At maximum brightness the static contrast ratio and black levels of the ACD are barely acceptable, I'm at around 3/4ths brightness and then have used both a spyder 3 calibrator and colormunki display (preferred the colormunki) and brought the display to reasonable levels. If you haven't calibrated since taking it out of the box I can only assume you're getting unnatural levels for greens and blues primarily and then some yellow, then the rest. The glossy finish helps everything 'pop' as well which is why most screens you see probably aren't as appealing.

There's also the fact that the ACD uses a W-LED backlight that actually slightly extends out of the normal sRGB range, giving colours more saturation compared to monitors that strictly stay within sRGB specification. Considering the LG is 8bit/10bit I imagine it uses one of those newer backlights like in the Dell U2713H which doesn't look as saturated as the HM when set to default modes (as long as the H is set to sRGB emulation as it is a wide gamut).

780Tis only $660 after rebate! http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GMTGJIU/ref=ox_ya_os_product_refresh_T1

Perfect for this monitor.

I don't know about diminishing returns. I just got one and i can tell its clearer than 1440p. Not sure if 6k or 8k would be clearer. However i think most people are missing the point that you don't want to see the pixels. You want it to be as uniform as possible so it doesn't feel like an image, but real. Its like printing our a 4mp and 12mp picture i'm sure you can tell the difference.

Pre-ordered from B and H, hopefully my two Titans can still run my games at max!

Hi, just bought the screen, unlucky me I don't have a cd drive, could anyone be kind to upload or give a working link for the drivers.

I had the 32" 4K Dell, this monitor is better imo. Certainly wasn't blown away by the 4K monitor in fact I was disappointed. Aside from resolution this beats it color reproduction (out of box colors were very saturated on the Dell), response time, and general ease of use.

4K actually doesn't look that great in Windows if you have to turn up DPI scaling (I found running at 100% resulting in fonts that were sometimes too hard to see and had eye strain). Bumping it up to 125% made things better, but then, fonts in some programs that weren't DPI aware looked terrible, all blurry.

Until there's absolutely no DPI scaling issues, I'm holding off on a 4K monitor, which probably will be a very long time from now.

You shouldn't have any problems with two titans. That is what I am using to drive the screen. Any dips below 60 is usually a cpu bottleneck, or texture load issue (not due to the gpu.)
