    Default Gaming Single Screen Monitor

    Which Monitor Price/Function wise would be the best? Also for both or either one would I need 2 780 6GB in SLI or would one be enough? My first choice was the Asus ROG but the price to size ratio was a killer. PG278Q ROG SWIFT Gaming Monitor. Plus I like the wide screen of the LG.

    I guess it depends on what games you will be playing to decide on which GPUs to purchase. Will you be doing CAD type work? Video editing?

    I can't see myself ever paying over $1K for a monitor unless it is with the company credit card. The LG 34UM95-P is a heck of a monitor with all the bells and whistles you could ask for @ 1440 res. But that price tag hurts my anus!

    Personally I would go with 2 or 3 of the LG 34UM65 in Eyefinity or Surround. 2 of those would be the cost of 1 of the others.

    Yea the the LG 34UM65 sounds good. Better than the 29' monitors, and I should be good with 1 of them right now as the have the split screen feature. I was originally going for the ASUS ROG PG278Q but the cost to size wasn't appealing, even though it is a 4k.

    With the LG 34UM65 what type of graphic cards would be good? SHould I still go for the GTX 780 6GB? Or step up to a GTX 780ti? Don't know if future gaming (Division, The Seige, Batman, etc) will require more Vram.

    I always say get the best or most you can afford at he time so you wont regret it later. If you can afford the 780ti with a bigger frame buffer like 6GB, then by all means get it. I am sure Division will need a ton of Vram to run all of that fast pace FPS MMO action. This is a game I have been waiting for since I heard about it. Cant wait!

    When it comes to displays its always best to go with the best you can afford like Sandy said, however, its also personal preference, I really like a lot of the new 21:9 displays, but I personally would like to see something in 1440p. Most of the ones I have seen are 1080p only and if it was 1080p, I rather have 3 displays in surround mode or eyefin1ty for more real estate.

    Right now I am using a Korean model Qnix 27" Pixel perfect for my photo/gaming system @ 2560x1440P. And while he picture is ultra sharp and I have calibrated the colors to be spot on, I still prefer to game on my other system that is hooked up to 3x Dell 2410 IPS panels using 5760x1200P. Gaming on 1440P is very nice, but i've gotten use to the extra real estate of 5760x1200P (width wise) that my single 27" can't cut.

    So all in all, its really what you are going to be happy with.
    The ASUS 4K display you mentioned looks to be a awesome display, but I've heard some mixed reviews on it. When looking for 4K displays make sure you do some research, a lot of displays right now are on running at 30hz and not 60hz. So if you are into fast moving games like FPS or racing games, you may not be happy with it. Also I've heard some 4k displays have been having issues with input lag. Some things to consider during your search.

    If I had to start all over again, I personally would pick up the new Dell 27" 2560x1440p and run 3 of them. That would be my ultimate set up.

    As far as GPU's go, again, if you want to future proof yourself, go with the best you can afford at this time. With more and more games becoming more demanding, you can stick with something with a little more vram, however keeping in mind the bandwidth of the card as well, just because some cards can have 6GB or 12GB of Vram something it doesn't mean that the card can utilize it, so its like paying for the extras that you may never use. This is a true story with guys that jumped on the 4GB GTX 760s, I did this and paid a extra $50 per card at the time and till this day, you will never see the GTX760 use the full 4GB since its performance and bandwidth can't even reach that limit. I learned this the hard way.

    Hope some of this helps your search.

    That new ASUS screen is pretty bad-ass.
    I want three of them, but I may have to wait for about ten years to get them.

    4K Monitor. 1MS. 1' bigger than the Asus, $200.00 cheaper.

    Wow. Now I'm stuck between deciding between the LG and the Samsung.
