    4K Computers

    Does anyone currently use (or have used) a 4K Gaming PC? Not sure if its worth investing in one considering the graphics card itself runs around $1100 (Titan Z) and a monitor from BenQ I want costs another $1099..

    In my opinion 4K isn't really worth it at the moment. It's good to prepare for the future but parts at the moment Man are just too expensive. I would tough it out for at least another 2-3 years until upgrading, but like I said, that's just my opinion.

    Thanks for the input, my budget sits around $2000 currently and building (as I work) but it'd probably be best to put the money towards a laptop for college and a good upgrade for my computer. Also looking into some gear upgrades from Steelseries.

    The fact that you think buying a Titan Z, and a $1k monitor is what you need just to play 4K, is why you aren't going to need to play 4K.

    I can go out and buy a 4690k, a single GTX 970, a $400 4K monitor, and play most modern games on medium settings, and get 30-40 FPS.

    A Titan Z isn't for gaming anyways. And I highly doubt that BenQ monitor is even good.

    Now you know why I'm seeking help on the area of 4K gaming.

    I looked into BenQ as my first choice since I pretty much only play CS:GO and BenQ is the most popular provider of monitors preferred by pro players. I was looking into Origin PCs which claim to offer 4K gaming and while building one the only GPUs they offered were Titans. Hence why I connected Titan Z -> 4K.

    I wouldn't do it. I much prefer 1440P as a resolution when gaming at around 27".

    4k PC at this moment is not worth it, not a lot of games have 4k quality, so it will be useless if you play those low ends games.

    I think a 4k PC is pretty okay, but for most games you need only 1k

    Anyone recommending a R9 295x2 should look into it again..
    It is the mother of heat and will turn your PC build into a volcano without good cooling or a standard water cooling kit..
    Imo, i would invest in a laptop for school as you said, or if you dont need that, go with a 1440p monitor and a gtx 980(sli if you want it)
    but thats just my opinion tbh.

    Is it worth upgrading from a Z97 system to a X99 system?
