I mean, I'm sure it'll run some games at 4k60, but it's definitely not going to run modern, graphically intense titles at high/ultra settings at 4k60.

if you have to insist you think for yourself, i'm not going to believe you.

Yes. Lower resolutions do not have the pixels. In fact, there's really no reason to run 4k on a non 4k monitor.

 

The 1660 TI will run games at medium/low at 4k, but you're gonna get a much more appealing gaming experience with 1440p medium/high.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

on a 4k monitor it will look sharp, but it will not look better if you have to reduce the graphics quality by a ton. Low quality textures are low quality no matter what resolution you render them in.

"high" for overwatch is their medium setting. that's fairly expected.

it's quite a lot more than that.

1920x1080 is 2 million pixels.

2560x1440 is 3.6 million.

3840x2160 is 8.3 million.

So what @Fasauceome is trying to say is in order to play 4k60 you will have to turn the textures way down. 
 

it’s will be like playing Mario bro’s 64 at 4K, sure you can do it, but you won’t notice any (positive) difference because the textures are so bad anyways.

 

might as well just save that money for a 2080

or 3080.

I would guess that it has a crappy panel with some bad colors

 

or you have a generous friend selling you their monitor they don't need anymore.

Care to link the monitor?

 

its probably shit and won’t make a difference, just save your money for a new gpu. Even if it’s 4K you have to look at things like response time, hz, size, what type of panel....

if you are getting a bargain then it's a good monitor, the color calibration on midrange Asus monitors is usually good, it uses a TN panel so don't expect particularly vibrant images. I hope the monitor has been cared for, usually a deal that's too good to be true has some strings attached.

they're not guaranteed terrible, and have some advantages over IPS, so there's not really a reason not to like them.

I don’t even care about the advantages they just have a nicer look to them, can’t quite pin down exactly what it is

Hi, thanks for the post. It's very helpful. I've one question maybe you could elucidate the answer for me, 

 

I'm basically torn here on my next build, juggling options for graphics cards and I think that I have the candidates narrowed down, but let me know your opinion, 

 

I'm trying to decide between the 1070 TI or the 1660 TIE Fighter variant, which one provides the greatest boost speed? Thoughts on positives/negatives for both, I can pick one up used on ebay from the first order - Thabks!!
