Is 4K worth it ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I’m debating if I keep my LGk950-f or go to the Acer XB273K...

 

I don’t know if this is hype as of now or if the sweet spot is still 1440 p?

 

if so, is the champion still the PG27QZ? What’s the difference between the PG27Q

It depends on the screen size and how much you're willing to put up with Windows 10's attempts at scaling UI if you get something at 27" or smaller.

 

And I guess if you are anal about running your games at native resolution.

Yup and ultra but it sucks because I’m not a fan of SLI for just gsming.

personally from what i have heard i would stick with 1440p or 1080p as you need a seriously powerful rig to power 4k at 120+ fps (and i haven't seen any benchmarks that show 4k gaming reaching 120fps, though i have never really looked, as the most powerful GPU i have looked into is the 2070)

I heard two 2080ti rtx run 4K at 75-85... 

 

I have one and can do a solid 60 on most. But to me the extra $1300 for 20 FPS better is insane

I was using a 2014 Samsung 4k 28" non LED for years and it had nothing to do with gaming.  I needed real estate.  I played games at 1080p.  So I don't know why everytime 4k is brought up we quickly talk about gaming on 4k.  Lets be realistic 4k gaming @60fps with a 2080 TI might float some peoples boats but not mine.  Ill stick to 1440p with all AA methods turned on and to max. :)

Yeah that's a lot of money for barely a 33% increase in performance
