    Re: $K TVmonitor

    Hi Knuckles,
    I was in your case a month ago or so, looking to upgrade my monitor.
    Looked for 4K TVs, but also alternative monitors.
    Ended-up opting for the ASUS Rogue Ultra-Wide monitor, at 3440x1440 (2K, not 4K). for the following reasons:
    1. Higher frame rate. This monitor has the GSync add-on that is fully compatible with my NVIDIA 1070i GPU
    2. Wider screen, gives better immersion imho
    3. PC monitors are designed for close up viewing while TVs are designed for room-distance viewing (that was the argument of the seller, who by the way would have sold both so he was not biased).
    4. My aging eyes would not make the difference between 2K and 4K I think. Besides higher resolution makes it more difficult for long distance target spotting. Some people force lower resolutions down to 1600x900...
    5. NOT price - both would have cost about the same
    I am very pleased with the ASUS. The upgrade from 1080p to 2K is a quantum leap.
    Hope this helps you in your struggle.
