    While I find 4k is an enjoyable medium for things, it's honestly not for general PC users to me at least. At least with the scaling still not perfect, and really who needs that much screen space? Those who are working with large windows, will obviously be better suited to it. I would imagine people who prefer movies and such, would do better on such resolutions to gamers?

    I could be in the minority here because really, I don't see much PC gaming benefit over maybe 1440p. You're stretching the content, but are you getting more enjoyment in that resolution? I've been mostly gaming at and below 720p most of my time, because of the limited monitors I've owned so I can't personally say there's a huge benefit.

    Someone able to give me a general benefit, to even consider gaming at 4k vs 1080/1440p? Aside from the obvious power required for it, which I'm not really for just to push gaming that much. I'd rather do three 1080/1440p screens, and game with extra info on each side. :)
