I still think despite what some others say here that DP1.3 next year will make a difference, not just the refresh rates but true HDR, larger colour space, wider luminance range etc.

But the PG348Q is so damn tempting!!! AAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGG!!!

Well for me, I use a 1080p TN 60hz monitor, with two GTX 980ti Lightning, 5930K and 32GB, I cannot use a 1080p monitor any longer with this setup and the ASUS PG348Q looks so good

If you, like me, are REALLY pressed for an upgrade right now, try the Samsung, Dell, or LG for just a little over half the price, and save the rest for the new batch of DP 1.3 monitors we all know are "coming soon".

I was considering the same thing again today, buying two Dell U3415W's for almost the same price as one PG348Q, and holding off until next year or maybe until there's a DP 1.3 G-sync OLED version in a few years.

That is what I am going to do, once I get this monitor, wait for a 5120x2160 95hz (100hz not possible on DP 1.3, unless the websites are taking out too much overhead) OLED Gsync monitor or just wait for a 5120x2160 144hz OLED Gsync monitor

That's pretty much my plan, except I went with the Samsung, which for the record I'm QUITE pleased with (once you go 21:9 you don't go back!)

I figure I'll be rebuilding my whole system when Skylake-e hits in late 2017, by which time DP 1.3 should be standard and 21:9 @144hz w/ g-sync will be available, if not affordable, for an upgrade.

Yep its major Tempting!

I'm currently using 3x 24" 16:10 monitors.

Its even more tempting now scan have them sitting in the warehouse, they could be on my desk by Wednesday :-)

My next system build would be when Volta comes out and Icelake E, so I expect 2019-2020, which is when I expect 4K 21.9 OLED to come out, although I want to start my Masters in 2020 (when I finish my degree) so I will not have much time

It is a hard choice, I know, however I will be doing my project for my degree in the second year, so I will have less time to use my system, that is another reason for getting the ASUS PG348Q now, so it depends on your situation with work/student if you can wait, also we have no idea when we will get the first 3440x1440p 144hz Gsync monitor

You'll find the time to build, even if you don't find the time to use it. Trust me. ;)lol

I'm holding off building a new rig for a gamble...

Waiting for Asus to produce a Z11PE-D8 WS, hopefully with NVlink, then whatever the fastest CPU's is in the E2600 V4 / V5 family will be, and whatever the Top Pascal's will be with the most Vram. This time totally liquid cooled. Should be an awesome system, but its all speculative at the moment.
