Looks very impressive. Maybe this sort of stuff will be affordable when upgrade time comes around again.

Frank, you should test what a 1080P movie looks like when displayed on a 4k screen.

I regularly stretch ~480P resolutions across my 1080P monitor and it looks decent enough to watch, I'm wondering how it works with this new monitor.


If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

1080P stuff looks terrible when stretched. But wow nearly 4K$ for 4K. :teehee:


If anyone whats a cheaper 4K soloution

Get one of these

And 2 of these

Total cost is about $1120 and it looks great, I've been gaming with this setup for a bit now and I am happy with it. But don't expect to play Crysis or Farcry at 4K just yet. :cry: It would require around 4 way SLI with Titans from what I've heard.
