The monsters & action seem like candlepower ratings, blown out of proportion until it's lost all meaning. Instead of scaring the crap out of you, they put 70 demons in for you to fight.

No way I'm spending 4K on a PC to play this.

Well it's obvious you've never played it because you're completely wrong. Best atmosphere in a FPS for years, best combat for years, the arena style set pieces have a flow to them and present a genuine challenge but still feel fair. You go in, die, learn, die, learn some more, die, try something else, die and when you finally succeed it's actually satisfying. You have to keep a flow going with your glory kills for health, chainsaw kills for ammo and picking up power ups at the right moment. The higher difficulties require a degree of skill.

Although they're good I'm not overly impressed with the graphics, it's the gameplay which sets Doom apart from recent games in the genre.

Doom was never meant to scare the crap out of you, you're a semi-invincible half-demon space marine in a badass techno suit with a rocket launcher, why would you be scared of anything.

And why would you need to spend 4k arrowheadsmiley.png

Also, when did people get the idea it costs 4K to build a PC to play this game. It can be done for under $1k, and most likely 700-800 depending on res.

The way my parts are coming in I'll have everything built tomorrow but my ram is coming 2 days later. I'm going to just stick the GTX 1080 into my media rig for a couple of days. lachen.gif
The i5 750 is going to be just a little bit of a bottleneck.

It's got positive reviews from basically everyone for its single player. It's the best single player FPS I've played since HL1/2. Are you wishing it was Doom 3? Because Doom 3 was garbage.

Based on the rest of his post, Im not surprised at all that he considers a $4k PC necessary to play a game.

I haven't tried the nightmare modes yet, the 'hardest' of the normal modes is already quite the challenge.

I prefer to have the graphical settings cranked. Any idea on when they are releasing the Sli profile for this game that they announced 2 months ago? I wan't to turn on Nightmare.

This is true. After using 21:9 for a bit it does make my TV and other monitor look...wrong. It really does fill up your FOV, but at the cost of needing to tweak some games.
The only reasons I didn't get a 4K monitor is because 4K is just a little too much for a GTX 1080, the Ti, Titan, and future cards will definitely be up to par.
That and I wanted a huge monitor.

I did come close to buying the BenQ BL3201PH 32" 4K, but if I get a 4K monitor I want G-Sync since I'll have frame dips. I didn't want the Acer version.
I still have a month to decide if I like this setup or not.

I just recently went through this, and while I did sacrifice g-sync, I don't regret going 4K with a single 1080 just yet. Crysis 3 definitely doesn't get maxed, but GTA V, Max Payne 3, Doom and Fallout 4 all run 60+ FPS with little or no AA on. I fully expected to turn around and return the monitor, but I haven't felt that way yet. g-sync ultrawide was in the plans for me, but I decided to save quite a bit of money, take advantage of a sale and see it for myself. Crysis 3 does support SLI...so there's always that way to fix it not running on Very High devil.gif.

Yeah, the 1080 is pretty stout, I know it'll play most of everything out now around 60 fps. I'm still not sure what I want exactly. As you said, the X34 and such cost too much for just a monitor.
I was going to go all out and get one but I just couldn't justify spending that much on a monitor.

I'm putting that saved money towards another sports car if anything, but I'll def upgrade to 4K here in the next 2-3 years.
