I just upgraded from a 10 year old, 24 inch budget monitor to a 28 inch Asus HD monitor.

This game is Beeeeeeeeautiful!  The detail, the lighting, the colours... everything.  I am absolutely blown away!

 

Just amazing!

I have been on this 24" ViewSonic coming on six years now. I am planning on getting a 27-28" monitor soon and put the 24" into second monitor duty as it still looks good.

It is nice when you have a monitor that allows you to crank up the resolution. I actually play on my LG ultrawide monitor with 21:9 aspect ratio and 2560 x 1080 resolution. Not a true gaming monitor but I am impressed with how nice the game looks.

Myself, I recently went from an outdated non-gaming laptop, to alienware desktop with 25 inch gaming screen and Bose surround sound system with sub woofer and all...  Game runs at 240fps with maximum settings and ultra quality sound, it looks and sounds, for the lack of a better word, awesome.

The problem with posting screenshots is you are viewing them on your monitor so, if it's a great one, you already know what I am talking about and if it's a poor one you won't be able to tell anyway.

If you're planning on going 27-28, I'd recommend going with a 2k monitor. If you want to go 4k, get a 32+

I am not ready for 4K even as a single monitor, I am on a GTX 760.

I moved from a 46" LCD 1080P Samsung television to a 35" asus  ultra wide. I thought I'd miss all the screen but good lord it has been life changing. 

Glad to hear you were able to join the visual orgasm club op!

The chipset will handle 4k and up to 4 monitors provided you have enough vram on the card. If you've got 4 gig on the video card, you should be able to run 4k without any issues. If you don't run games/apps that need serious Antialiasing (and WG stuff doesn't), you could run a single 4k monitor (and likely just a single 4k and 1080 max) with 2gb. Keep in mind, to run beyond 2018x1536, you MUST use the digital links.

I'm running on a 10yr old GTX260 (albeit with a very nice wide screen display). 

Still kicking myself for not buying a new GPU before the cryptominers ruined the market.  I kept telling myself prices would go down and waited too long.

The exact same make and model of video card that I installed in my system eight years ago is $40 more than I paid at the time.

Well that price may be dropping soon as there is only a limited amount of bitcoin to mine and it's almost out.

Once all Bitcoin is mined the only use of having a computer for bitcoin is verifying transactions in the blockchain.

On top of that if you do want to jump in on it with your own hardware a gpu doesn't cut it anymore.

It will work , but for the bitcoin that is mined with it will be less than your energy cost.

Fads oftentimes run up the prices of goods and services beyond their true market value. Gem diamonds are a prime example.

There is an interesting story written many decades ago about a group of bank robbers who stole a fortune in diamonds and then had themselves suspended in cryosleep for several hundred years until everyone had forgotten about the theft. When they awoke, the lush forest had transformed into desert and all but one of the criminals died crossing it. The last reached some people but  then himself died of thirst when they refused to exchange his worthless diamonds for their precious water.

Honestly, I'm not the least bit interested in bitcoins... I just want a better GPU that doesn't cost a fortune :Smile_teethhappy:.

Even low-end 950s and 1050s are inflated.  Im aiming for a 1070...if they get back closer to MSRP.

Do you remember when hard drive prices went through the roof because of the flood at the Western Digital plant? Now, mechanical hard drives are going for $30 a terabyte. Eggs did something similar with the bird flu a couple of years ago.  Then, when all the new chickens got to laying size they were fifty cents a dozen until the market stabilized. I know lots of people who bought chickens to raise, and now spend more on feed for them than the eggs are worth.

If you don't absolutely need a computer component then don't buy it. The market is driven mainly by desire, not need. I build to the sweet spot of price versus performance and generally get ten years out of a system before it needs replaced. Of course, I don't try to play the latest and greatest games on ultra settings either. Remember that the people developing and coding the games are working on high-end workstations that are way beyond the price that the average consumer is willing to pay. The newest games will always tax the limits of consumer hardware if set on their ultimate settings.

I needed to replace my huge 19" CRT because it was crushing my computer table, so set out after a 27" (typically 16:9) screen.  After mocking one up on me computer table I realized that the thing is REALLY WIDE.  So instead I went for a 24" Asus 16:10 monitor.  1920x1200 resolution which is true to the screen aspect ratio and displays text without the distortion of 1920x1080.  Very happy with it, though it cost extra.

Lol, aside from videos, I've never seen WoWs on the highest graphics settings. .. some day.  Actually my drive for a new GPU is I need DX11 support for some games I bought.

1070 is a beautiful card.  Running WOWs on absolute max settings on the new monitor and not a hiccup.  Paid $625 CDN for it and do not regret it for a second.

It is only a 2GB card, got it several years ago as an upgrade from a 650. Besides there are too many games and other programs that don't support 4K that I don't feel it is worth the jump yet.

Mid range cards are still relatively reasonably priced but if you want a top end 1070 you better plan of mortgaging the house and selling the first born.
