    It's hard to say because the requirements of games will change. With new consoles launching next year will the default still be looking for 60fps @ 1080p? Or will developers forgeo graphics improvements in attempt to get 60 @ 4K with current graphics levels and just rely on resolution? If it's the latter than next gen PC graphics cards should start pushing over that 60/4K envelope. But if it's the former and game devs start utilizing higher quality shaders and whatnot then all it's going to do is push the requirements up.

    Many graphics cards.

    I never understand this question. Just because something is in 4K doesn't mean anyone is required to play the game in 4K at the highest settings, some people prefer higher resolution + high FPS over in-game graphics settings.

    It's a thing.

    I have a 40'' 4k lg tv and I can play Far Cry 3 with a RX 570. See, I'm one of the lucky ones that does not require exactly 60fps. I can adjust my tv to go WQHD and get better fps , but i like ULTRA HD, as its finer you can turn down some options and still looks good. I haven't brought a game since FC3 :oops:

    I do fancy that game Red Redemption 2. Oh Boy! I'm gonna need a better card than I got :D:p;)

    Why buy fast car you are not gonna be rally driver?
    There is tons of options and people who want to do things differently, maybe someone who wants 4k but not all settings maxed wants crisp and clean image without smokes and shadows looking 10% better with cost of 50% lower fps.

    4k IS the eye candy! No other setting improves graphics as well the 4k setting. Some settings have greater perf impact than visual benefit and these can be turned down (esp AA). I have been doing this since my gtx1070 days. Have always found 4k with slightly reduced settings superior to maxed out on 1440p. This aside from the fact that most games (older, non-demanding) can be maxed out on 4k. To get full benefit from 4k though requires a decent size screen (40"+) so you can flesh out all the details properly.

    just because you play a game at say 1080p/1440p doesnt change that the screen still has 4K res,
    which is needed for any screen past 32" anyway, or you will see pixels, at least when surfing/documents etc.
    also allows to fine tune fps and i can play old games like rivals @4K, and siege will still look good at 1440p with higher fps.

    just because a car has 500 HP or an F22 can go supersonic, doesnt mean they only get used at that level.


    but i rather spend 1000$ on something like the 49X90F. its FALD and has 120Hz
    turning off motion/image processing will reduce input lag to normal level, and darks will look better than on this.
    while saving 6-800$ can be spend on other upgrades.

    You also wouldn't buy a ferrari with a Ford Cortina engine either.

    Difference of opinion in regards to eye candy.

    Eye candy is great, but higher resolution means, theoretically, you can see more, or don't have to use AA which can in itself blur the screen.

    Everyones opinions about what is or is not important in their games are simply not all the same.

    yeah it has burn in, meanwhile LCD has;

    1-awful blacks
    2-blur
    3-pale colors
    4-worse contrast
    5-uneven brightness
    6-they all have mud coats now, cuz 50nit screens made people mad back in 2005, now apple gets praised for its amazing imac screens, no one seems to realize they are just glossy and bright af
    7-lag
    8-you can mostly fix one or two of the issues mentioned above, but only OLED fixes them all at once

    oh yes give me that sweet burn-in, im still trying to find it on my decade old phones, and its an egg-chicken problem with software and its static imagery potentially becoming an issue today, if OLED desktop marketshare was 20-30% it would be fixed in a week

    You obviously have not seen a proper LCD within last 10 years.

    @EspHack
    1. has to do with the light control, not the screen itself, as lcd's dont emit any light.
    2. what blur? motion? oleds have that too, as i demo videos that show without motion processing the oleds dont look better despite 120 Hz.
    3. so 60 B colors (DV) is pale to you?
    4. worse contrast? when i can have almost twice the brightness? ok
    5. again, connected to the light source/control, not the lcd screen itself.
    6. enough mat/semi mat screens out there, and oleds are usually glossy, so whats your point?
    7 lag? comes from processing, if i do the same amount on the oled, it will have input lag as well.

    and there isnt really a "burn in" on oleds as there is nothing being burned in the first place.
    and unless the oleds change, you cant fix image retention, as its caused by the different colors degrading differently,
    not even talking about the fact that i've seen it on a not even 1 y old LG (running 12 h/day), same with customers,
    already have ppl asking what to do with a 1-3 y old tv that has IR.

    This is IMO one of the best monitor right now if you want big screen, it has HDR1000, 4K/144, Freesync/Gsync compatible

    I seen enough and he is right on all accounts, I just had the 2500USD monitor for two weeks and sent it back due to everything listed and more, I been using OLED as my PC monitor since 2016 so when i got the LCD I imidietly seen all the negatives, even of the best PC monitor that money can buy right now iwth 513FALD zones, GSYNC ultimate, overdrive, all the latest tech is in this monitor ASUS PG35VQ.

    no local dimming at this price is a joke.
    a tv for half that cost has it, and i gladly drop to 120 hz to have that,
    and even a 49" would be cheaper than this.

    LCD have horrible pixel response, OLED has instantaneous, so the blur comes from that, just spin a character in any game around, even with maximum overdriver
    You can have ten times the brightness but your "black" is more gray then black and that changes everything, black is basic color and its part of almost every composition, OLED has infinite black so contrast is on different level, OLED without HDR looks better then most LCD with HDR on.
    LCD is pale because its LCD, because of the back light that either always on or has few zones, its affects the image quality, also OLED has stronger color POP due to technology and the way OLED works
    Uneven brightness is the due to LCD, you cant light up individual, so it is what it is, there is no alternative

    OLED wins in every parameter except maximum brightness and even this only for now, I seen screenshots of LG conference and by 2022 the OLED will get double brightness compared to 2019, on 2020 it will start gradually increasing, then 2021 and on 2022 it will be exactly double
    Also right now OLED has 15000 hours of endurance/lifespan, on 2022 it will double to 30000
    Also they doing something new with pixes arrangement and it will increase the color gamut to 90% Rec. 2020
    and next year 48inch coming so that will be great PC monitor, i been using C6p 55inc since 2016 as my PC monitor, got C9 as replacement because they added GSYNC and maybe ill get next upgrade in 2022.
    I have lots of experience with OLED
