very tempted... but only have rx 470 so not sure what can play on 4k. how would 1440 look? also people say don't need anti aliaising with higher res.

i currently have a 46" samsung 1080p tv but also a 23" aoc 1080p..i prefer thr smaller monitor for clarity but would love a 27 or 28" monitor and think should get freesync and heck why not 4k too while buying.

but no netflix 4k on pc unless a new model :( so another 70 quid for fire stick...

Sounds a good buy .. whats the catch?

Its only 60hz. Not 120hz or 144hz.

Oooo, just ordered a 23" IPS 1080p for £100 but wanted something a little bigger. Is the difference worth it?

dnt go for 4k or 2k even if u av GTX 1080 and want to record ur game while playing, o for 1080 hz is most important, I av i7 6700k with gtx 1080, 1st i had 40" 4k tv was getting 30 to 45 fps I sold it and went with 1440p again not gud performance fps was too low on ultra, now I got Acer Predator Z35 with 200hz every game am getting for then 150fps and I do record while playing awsum I kill other players easily. now I relizd it's all abut Frames wen it's come to Multiplayer Games.

Plz enlighten me I thought the graphics card would be responsible for fps? Why would having a higher hz monitor make a difference unless you have vsync on of course.

I think...

4k was getting 45fps

sold and got 1080p display

got 150fps

makes sense as 4k is 4x as big?

and that suited his gaming style of multiplayer first person shooter and also helped when recording?

so I think he says

1080p at 150fps better than 4k at 45 fps?

Higher the refresh rate the clearer the picture on moving objects. To benefit from higher fps you need a higher fresh to match.

OK that makes sense, I was thinking wait he went from 35fps to 150fps on 4k just by getting a better hz TV!! I'm like how is he gaming in 4k at 150fps!!

No, you just have a natural advantage especially in first person shooter games(FPS) with a higher refresh rate - standard monitors (like this one) will only output 60hz - That's 60 times your screen will refresh the picture in a second - As opposed to a monitor that has 120hz where the screen will refresh 120 times in a second - and 144hz which will obviously do it 144 times.

It does depend on your latency as well but generally means you'll see an enemy's animations more fluidly, resulting in much cleaner target prediction and hitscan hitboxes.

This is great - but it needs the fps to support it. It's no good if your monitor refreshes 120 times in a second but your game only gets 30 frames - then you end up with screen tear...Which is where Freesync comes in, effectively matching your frames to your refresh rate so you don't get the horrible screen tears.. Obviously this favours higher fps games.

Hope this helps.

This will all depend on the tickrate of the server. Battlefield 1 for example has a default server tickrate of 60hz so getting 144fps won't give you any advantage to someone with 60fps.

100% correct. I think most PC games don't have a static tickrate, Battlefield may be the exception - I don't play it.

I'm actually on the lookout for a 4k monitor but it's a minefield trying to find a good one. There is also the question of going with 28" 16:9 or 34" 21:9, having never used a 21:9 monitor I'm a bit sceptical.

I have NEVER had a widescreen 21:9 screen so I couldn't possibly comment. I would be rather sceptical as well.

4k monitors are expensive (if you're getting 120hz+) so I hope you have some spare cash.

I have a 1440p 144hz 27inch monitor and it's done me well. My next upgrade will be 4k 144hz...I just have to wait 6 months or more for the prices to drop a lot.

If the cheaper model you're talking about is the CB241HQK bear in mind that doesn't support FreeSync. And its panel is always refreshed at 60Hz regardless of the actual video refresh rate (i.e. juddery movement with 50Hz input). Having said that, I think it's OK for the price especially if you don't care about non-60Hz video.

Very tempted. This 4K LG IPS is currently only £290 on Amazon. An inch smaller though. Not sure if it's worth the extra for the IPS or not?!

Not interested in Freesync as I have a 1070. For that reason, would you say the 24 inch is a good buy?

If you don't mind the non-60Hz issue (which TBH many people would never even notice) I'd say definitely; I don't know any other 24" IPS UHD monitor anywhere near £200 at the moment.

1080p only, it does not support 4k as there are handshake issues, to do with HDCP 2.2 I believe. Anyways, I sometimes use it as a 1080p monitor for my ps4 pro and its decent.

OK so I am thinking DVI is no good for 60hz!

Mine is running at 30hz, I only have the option of 29 or 30 in Nvidea control panel. Using DVI lead. Can anyone tell me why?
Try switching to DisplayPort or use a Dual-Link DVI cable. Although, i've used regular DVI cables before and they seem to be good

Thanks for the info. I use a 1080p monitor most of the time, I get the odd chance to use the Pro in the 4K TV if the Mrs is out :)
