    Titan setup

    OK, so I've had my titan for a while now. However, I'm still running on one monitor (Second one sucks horsecock), so I was wanting to see if anyone had any suggestions for what I could get. If I find any good priced 4K monitors they'll be mine in just a matter of minutes.

    A good priced 4K monitor at this point in time? Good luck! I would get either an ultra widescreen or a 144hz monitor.

    EDIT: check this out though, probably the lowest you will see:

    ​4Ks are expensive as hell, better off to just go multi-monitor.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    4K resolution is barely an adjustment from HDMI with the right setup. I've seen comparisons between standard HD and 4K, and I can tell you from first hand that when running on a 7990, the difference in quality is nowhere near the price gap. Instead, buy 3 42 inch TV's with low ms readings, turn them to portrait and put them next to each other. Or buy one and keep it landscape, then buy two smaller (I think 22" but I'm not sure) with the same border thickness and put them next to the TV as peripheral extensions.

    4Ks aren't that expensive, they only cost about the same as a titan.

    Are you not the one who made that thread about selling "your" PC?

    The thing is, I definitely prefer one monitor. Because I really don't like the small frames (On the monitors/TVs) or whatever you want to call it when using multiple ones.

    And, a 4K monitor is no where near the price of a Titan.. Get your shit right.

    That's why I went ultra wide. Can't stand the bezel of the screens

    You can go 1440p for an upgrade if you don't already have one.

    Not sure if you ever noticed that.

    And why the hell would I want a 23.8"? Might be the reason why it's cheap.....

    4K's are definitely still overpriced and underdeveloped. Right now i wouldn't recommend running 4K with just one TITAN. I've actually looked through a few, and even though 24" might be a bit small for your liking the ASUS VG248QE would probably be a nice fit. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236313
