First of all what will be the purpose of the monitor. Do create content or do you want it for gaming. 

Must it be 4k at 16:9?

 

I would get the odyssey G9 which is ultra wide 240hz gaming monitor. But I don't know about you, you might be using it for different purpose.

I don't know any 4k gaming monitors. But there are sure a lot. Some you can find at 144hz. 

 

Well the 3090 can do 8K at 60Fps which is equal to 4K at 240fps. So I really don't think you would have a problem running the G9. Though in some games you might have to sacrifice some quality in order to reach the 240fps. 

 

Also I think the 3090 still has some driver issue that doesn't let it go higher than 120fps in games. But they might have fixed it by now.

Save some money and buy this one.

G9 has lots of overshoot in dark transitions, colors are worse, contrast and black uniformity aren't that much better either. It is faster panel and has slightly better HDR though, and is larger overall.

If you want to look for more options, here's a table tool you can use. You can add more filters from the add column button.

And lastly, the sticky will help you to understand the reviews better.

Sure, if you are willing to change your habits.

Here are some tips how to mitigate the chance of burn-in.

If u can afford to burn money on a RTX 3090, then u can take the risk of 'burning' a screen :P get the CX 48" and run 4k 120hz with BFI and VRR.

Well what i think is that, if there is "actual monitor" for abit more, i can live with that extra cash spent, but if there is no other better option than cx.... It's just a tad bit to big :/

Monitor market is all about sacrifice.

Take a look at the table tool I provided above and wage their weaknesses against the possible burn-in of the CX.

Wether you sacrifice on response time,contrast, black uniformity, local dimming zones and HDMI 2.1 is up to you.

The thing is, if ur in a position to actually consider the CX 48" , then there really is no other alternative. It is in a league of its own vs Monitors, nothing really comes close.

 

Any LCD monitor u look at will have a handful of 'issues' all of which affect image quality.

The CX OLED has effectively zero. Its biggest issues are its price and size. The potential for burn in is avoidable and based on usage the owner puts it through.
