It'll take nothing short of 1070 SLI (minimum) to make the most out of this monitor.

All I gotta say is if you pay anywhere near $1k for this you're crazy..

I bought my 65KS8000 for $1079. To pay near that price for a 27" monitor is madness. $600 is where I would draw the line, and even then that would be for 32" not 27.

These are somewhat interesting. I don't know about the 27", but my Asus 28" 4K60P monitors are great. Granted, I see how this size would annoy many users based on their vision, I am ok with it.

I know a single Titan XP would not be able to consistently drive this thing, maybe next arch's flagship will.

This is a legitimate question but, how close are you guys sitting to your monitors?

We used to have a 34in TV as our main tv for years...I can't imagine putting it 2-3 feet from my face.

I currently have a 27" PG279Q and I have to sit really close to the monitor due to apartment restrictions, it's actually a bit too big because I need to turn my head a bit. Gonna get this one probably.
