So when using a 4K TV for PC gaming in PC mode, do I still use the TV's Game Mode option ?

Samsung NU8000

It's a good 4K TV.

In the settings it says to use Game mode it's not specific for PC.

This is the quote:

"GAMING SETTINGS
To enable Game Mode, select 'External Device Manager' from the 'General' menu, and then select 'Game Mode Settings'. Set 'Game Mode' to 'On'. For SDR gaming set 'Sharpness' to '0' to remove any sharpening. To enable chroma subsampling when playing from a PC, set the input icon to 'PC' under the 'Input Device Manager' submenu."

I've set the input to PC but not game mode. For all I know it's meant for consoles.

I just want to know if I'm using PC mode do I still use the game mode too ? I'm maybe thinking PC mode is good for text and chroma subsampling Y444 but I'm still getting the most input lag. That's why I still need to use game mode.
