4k monitors are not still a gimmick. The extra real estate is a massive benefit to those of us who use PC's for actual work, as opposed to playing games and watching videos.
Today it is still a gimmick:
1. Scaling in Windows 8 sucks, and in Windows 7 it is even worse.
2. No games that work in 4K
3. No video in 4K, the choice of what's out there at the moment is a joke.
4. When the first games come out supporting 4K, later this year, it will take 2xTitan in SLI to provide good FPS.
I would suggest waiting till next year... And right now a 30" monitor is a way better choice.
