pretty sure you have bigger problems than a monitor too big if you're gaming more than half the day

VRR is probably going to be standard, assuming NVIDIA/AMD signals support for it along when they announce HDMI 2.1 support. Can't imagine why I would consider this over a 65" or 77" 120Hz OLED with VRR like LG's offerings. I'm sure this is just going to be a severely overpriced rebranded LG panel anyways.

Probably?!? Intel announced support too, so did Xbox and a lot of TVs will support VRR this year. It is already pretty standard and next year it will probably be close to ubiquitous.

AMD uses Freesync over HDMI already and Nvidia just added support for the Display Port version of this tech

VRR is standard now! I didn't think it would be so soon after G-sync came out. AMD getting it added to the next standard turned out to be amazingly effective.

It has display port! Everyone loves display port (4K120 with a 2080Ti). It is also missing all the smart TV features so it will probably think of itself as a monitor. My LG TV thinks it is a TV and does stupid stuff because of it, like going bright blue for 10 minutes when the monitor is put to sleep.
