  1. Wouldn’t the TV upscale the content?
  2. Okay! Looks like the desktop is HDMI 1.4. But what your saying is I should be able to run regular 1080p content and have it upscaled on the OLED?
  3. I want to get an LG CX OLED for my family. We currently watch Tv using a 1080p Tv hooked up to a Dell optiplex 3040. It has a 6th gen intel i3 and 4 gb ram no dedicated gpu. We don’t really watch traditional TV, it’s all online Asian TV. I’m just curious if the PC we use is enough to watch high quality content. The online videos aren’t in 4K but with the TV upscaling I’m hoping to get high quality content that is if the PC can output it or does that not even matter? Please let me know!
  4. Hmm it seems like I’ll have to see both monitors in person before making a purchase. I want 4K resolution for content consumption and the occasional video editing. i know I could get a LG CX OLED but I just don’t have enough desk space for it.
  5. Ooohh I see thanks!!
  6. Oh okay I see. I'll wait to see it in stores before I make any decisions. But what makes you say that the G7 is superior? Is it bec of the QLED? Or refresh? Do those matter when comparing to 4K and panel type?
  7. I'm trying to decide between two different monitors. lg 27gn950: https://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-27gn950-b-gaming-monitor 32" Odyssey G7 Gaming Monitor: https://www.samsung.com/us/computing/monitors/gaming/32--odyssey-g7-gaming-monitor-lc32g75tqsnxza/ I basically want an all in one monitor that has good image quality and fast refresh rates and response time for gaming. The LG monitor has a 4K resolution, hdr, and a 144hz refresh rate at a good price point too. The Samsung Odyssey has a 1440 100R curved screen with 240 hz refresh rate, so it is the superior choice for gaming. But I wondering how the curved screen would work for viewing content? I think higher resolution beats the refresh rate but the Odyssey has QLED so could it beat the 4K Nano IPS panel, but would the curve screen distort the image when viewing at a distance?
  8. I guess I can compromise and go with a 1TB SSD and 500 for back up files
  9. Then I guess it makes sense to go in on a large SSD or maybe I’ll compromise and go with a 1TB SSD and just keep the 500 GB just in case as back up storage. Anyways, thanks for telling me all this information! I’ll definitely keep you posted with any updates and the final build!
  10. Haha you sure got me really thinking about getting the OLED for my set up.
  11. Wow thank you so much for this!! I was worried that the CPU was overkill, but I didn't know how the performance would be affected by switching to the Ryzen 7. So I made that switch along with everything else you mentioned except the Case and the memory. I really like the Case I chose bec I really like the sleek white design with the glass panels. Plus it comes with RGB fans and a stripe. Also I thought it was recommended to have both SSD and hard drives. What would be the advantages of an all SSD vs the set up I had?

  12. Got it! Thanks for the monitor info! I'll have to do some research then to see if upscaling is good on the Acer Predator x27 or the LG 27GN950-B and decide from there. Or if I'll cave and buy C9 or CX lol
  13. I want to help build a streaming and 4K editing PC for my girlfriend Budget & Location The budget is around $1500 for the PC. And we're planning on building this PC this year's black Friday so hopefully we can score some good deal and wait for the new 4th gen Ryzen processors and ATX 3000 series. The PC will be in her room. Aim She wants to use the PC for streaming games like Fornite, Rocket League, and eventually span out to Triple A games. She does edit her videos and uses 4K footage for her camera not her game however. Monitors She is planning on getting the LG 27GL850 monitor. 1440 resolution with 144hz refresh and 1ms response time. Peripherals She has a MX master mouse and is planning on getting a mechanical key board so if you have any suggestion that would be great! Why is she upgrading? She currently uses her Dell XPS 17 (7950) to stream, edit, play video games. A faster machine that would be able to handle all of her game play and editing would definitely make her streaming career easier! Any advise to her planned PC would be greatly appreciated! You can suggest anything! Thanks in advance!

  14. Okay I may end up using one of those devices then! And how can I find out if upscaling will be good on my monitor. I was thinking about playing in 1440p but I heard it wasn’t good to do that in games on a native 4K screen
  15. I do like a good balance! But rgb ram is like $300....do you have any good suggestions? I really like the case however, it’s just expensive also but I think it’s worth it
  16. Oh okay I get it. So for content consuming TV would be best. Does that mean under resolution content such as at 1080p will look bad on a 4K monitor? Also would I be able to watch 4k streaming content if I were to hook up a apple TV 4k or roku?
  17. Got it thanks! I’ll make those upgrades!!
  18. Hi y'all! This will be my very first PC build and I've been saving up to invest in a workstation that will last me for a few good years! Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Budget & Location I'm located deep in the heart of Texas and my budget is around $3000. I'm planning on building this PC during this year's black Friday so hopefully I can score some good deals and wait for the new 4th gen Rzyen processors and ATX 3000 series. The PC is going to be in my room and I'm planning moving in the next two years. Aim I mainly want to use this set up for 4k content consuming and the occasional 4K gaming and editing. My main focus is content consuming since I do that the most rn. I don't know if having a 4K setup makes sense for youtube and other streaming services such as netflix and hulu if not all content is uploaded in 4k. But having a higher resolution screen means better content quality right? I have a lot of confusion on that but that's what I'm going with. When it comes to gaming, I don't play any triple A games but I want to start with The last of Us 2 and cyberpunk, (if they come out on PC). For now I play fornite and rocket league. I also edit videos as a side passion and occasional job. I haven't used any 4K footage yet, but in the near footage I'll be using 4K footage. Monitors I know if content consuming is my main focus I should get a LG CX TV but there is no desk/room real estate for a 48 in TV and if I'm planning on moving in 2 years I don't think I want to deal with a big 48 screen to haul around. I was thinking about choosing between 2 monitors the Acer Predator x27 or the new LG 27GN950-B 27. They are both 4K at 144 hz. The LG has a faster response time, but the x27 has a higher brightness. I'm leaning towards LG bec it's cheaper and faster while still having the same resolution. The difference in nit brightness shouldn't be too much right? Also I heard the X27 might have a fan problem. Peripherals I already have peripherals: a Roccat Vulcan 120 and Logitech MX master 3 (I know I should probably get a gaming mouse like the Razer Viper), but I really like the Logitech mouse...I should probably get a gaming mouse. Why Am I upgrading? I'm currently using a Dell XPS 15 as a my daily driver. I got it for it's portability but I want something that can play triple A games and push out 4K content. I also want something that will last me over the years and I can just swap out the parts. The Dell XPS 15 7950 is connected to a Dell Usb-C 1440 60hz monitor, S2719DC. Any advise to my planned PC would be greatly appreciated! You can suggest anything! I''m pretty much open to any ideas. Thank you guys in advance!

  19. I keep reading articles saying that 1080p content looks the best on native resolution monitors and the scaling doesn't work if you watch 1080p on 4k monitors, but these post are from years ago. I understand that for gaming this will be true, but what about youtube and other streaming services like Netflix? Will 1080p look blurry on a 4k monitor? What's the point of having a 4K monitor if you can't enjoy all your content on it in the highest quality?
  20. Thank you so much! I really appreciate it! When the 4th gen comes out would it be possible to run the set up with 4th gen Ryzen 7 and a rtx 2060 (bec I'll be gaming in 1440 p? Also is it impossible for my laptop to drive a 4K monitor at 120hz even with a thunderbolt dock?
  21. Budget (including currency): $2,200 Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): Hi! This is my first post on Linus Tech Tips and I would greatly appreciate y'all's help! I currently have a Dell XPS 15 2019 Model (7590) and it's connected to a dell 1440p monitor (S2719DM) via USB-C. I want to upgrade my monitor to the ACER Predator X27 or x32 basically a 4K, 120hz+, and responsive monitor so that I can game in 1440 p and watch content in 4k and edit the occasional 4K video files. Right now I'm a casual gamer and don't play any triple A games but I'm looking to start. And I really enjoy watching the highest quality content. I just don't have a TV because I don't have room for one and I don't really want to get one. What upgrades do I need for my set up to drive 4k 144hz monitors? Is it possible to use just a thunderbolt 3 hub such as the caldigit TS3 plus to drive the monitor with just my laptop? I know they can drive 4k monitors at 60hz but is it the same at 144hz? I looked into an egpu, but if I was spending $300 for an enclosure and $500 for the gpu and only getting 80% of the potential, I was thinking it would be a better value to just build a PC. Is my reasoning wrong? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
