LG C9 as gaming monitor?

I really want a nice gaming monitor with great colors and over 100hz refresh rate. It seems as if the LG C9 is the best out right now that meets pretty much everything anyone would want.

Besides having to sit further back from the 55inch screen is there any other reason this wouldn't be a good idea for a gaming monitor? I currently have a 34inch ultra-wide.

With variable refresh rate available, there isn't any reason why it would be a bad idea to have one.

folks love it, once you adjust for size. HDMI 2.1 ready VRR = slightly "future proof" (cringes) since nothing can take advantage of that yet. at best Titan? which is 2.0b?

are they going on sale somewhere, tomorrow? Cuz right now everyone has them back @ MSRP.

You would have to run it at 1440p to get 120hz with current hardware. So you would have to sit back even farther then you would at 4k. Well unless you are fine with 60hz until hdmi 2.1 hardware comes out.

Man you know LG and nVidia got together. LG newest line 2019 get firmware update and it becomes g-sync compatible and you see a g-sync in the nVidia panel and it finds it and you enable it. Also I turn on HDR in Windows and things are soo bright and dark levels dark bright really bright.. Regular monitor is 250 to 350nits of brightness.. The TV 3x more nits. It is a gaming TV. In the back the first port says PC ,, you connect your HDMI for tv on second port.. and has instant response like 0ms lag if there is such thing... there is zero motion blur and zero lag.. It would feel like your gaming monitor but OOO soo much better. So with firmware update and other updates its the best thing you can do. 4k will do only do 60hz, But I play at 1440p and I play Quake Champions its sick,,,,,, I got a lap desk thingie its a small desk portable that you put your keyboard and mouse on so I don't have to turn my head all way to see it and see it at off angle ,, Doesn't get better then this... Q champions looks incredible in HDR glory , you turn it on in display settings and it gives the effect of HDR and does it well. Things are so bright, and the darks dark and brights bright... its just sick! For PC usage I use monitor as you cant use the TV as a monitor because the pixels are so much bigger and it doesnt properly show fonts they are all messed up. So for photos or gaming, but rest of the thing you do on your monitor.

Yea thanks! I was thinking about maybe getting the B version as it's supposed to support Gsync and is $300 cheaper but I don't see any deals on them probably because it's so new.

Yea, I'm fine with 1440p. I've used that before and loved it. I felt 4k was too much.

yeaah. still think I'll be going with ASUS TUF 3440x1440p and an Index this year instead.

my Pro Art's random flicker/artifact issue is growing more frequent & happens on all inputs (not GPU, board, or cable related)

just download any of those price tracker apps to get an idea of how low it'll possibly go tomorrow/monday. C9 was down to $1200 just the other day but being modern black friday and all, you've gotta slowly roll the prices back to MSRP so the mass produced deals look good to the once a year shopper. N typically, door busters aren't the kinda screens we're looking for.

I figure I'll stop by best buy tomorrow afternoon, just in case. See if they have any sorta epic gaming monitor deals or LG OLED on sale.
