Monitor advice

Hi All

I'm just looking for some feedback from the community.

I'm considering purchasing a 4K monitor with 16:9 aspect ratio and 3840 x 2160 resolution.

You can see this monitor here: https://www.samsung.com/us/computing/monitors/uhd-and-wqhd/samsung-uhd-28-monitor-with-high-glossy-black-finish-lu28e590ds-za/

My card is a GeForce GTX 1070

Would this be a compatible monitor to run with this game?

Thank you folks!

WoWs doesn't really like 4K cuz there's no GUI scaling. You can get it, but just play the game at 1080p

This, assuming you already have a monitor you could use the old one for software that doesn't scale well to 4k which is quite common unless you only run the newest software.

I think the 1864 version would be a little bit out of the time period covered by this game, while the 1900's version would emphasise turning the ship instead of the gun (I think it had a few degrees play each way for fine adjustment, but that was it).

Would I be happy to see WOWS: Ironclads (1861-1905)? Yes. The only problem I foresee is that the gun reloading times would have to be artificially scaled; some of the early breechloaders took FIVE MINUTES to reload, even with mechanical assistance.

It wasn't just the breech loaders that took a long time to reload but I would have great fun playing a US Civil War and up naval game.

Oh I know, but I also know how many people would be looking forward to the pre-dreadnoughts of the early 1880s (partcularly the Italian giants, the Yamatos of their day). Breech loading did not make them any faster!

There was a gain in reloading speed for the breech loaders but it was to 3 - 5 minutes from 5 - 7 minutes, a definite difference but still slow.

I use that exact same monitor. It's great. 

Although my usage of it for WoWS is through an hdmi connection to a surface pro 2. But you should be able to push the graphics pretty high for yourself depending on your specs. Although if your on Wi-Fi VS Wired I'd still recommend not pushing the specs to the fullest. You may run into minor latency issues.

The monitor will work just fine with that card. I am running a 4k monitor on that card as well. However, the User Interface (UI) doesn't scale right now, so it will be incredibly tiny on a 28 inch screen. It will probably be unreadable...as far as chat goes. 

So, if you're purchasing this monitor just for this game; it's a bit soon. If you are buying it for other reasons, you can either run it at lower resolution for the game, or just have to squint really hard at the interface :)
