    Overwatch, Gravity Rush 2, RedOut are the games worth playing with high end resolution

    any advice which monitor should I get for an 800 budget for a 1080 I just got?

    I am in the same situation. I am looking at the Acer Predator XB321HK but waiting for black friday and expecting some miracle price drops :D

    Does it exist?

    I was planning to buy a SMART TV for my man cave. I want to use it for gaming and for home theater set up. Is there any brand that fits with the purpose that i want?

    I prefer my 1440 resolution monitor to my 4k. Both were inexpensive however. Does anyone have a recommendation for a 1440 monitor (say at least 27")?

    4K Resolution @ 22-inch (over 200dpi)
    DCI-P3 / Wide-Colour Space
    120Hz+ with Sync
    1ms response time
    True HDR (1000nits or so)

    ...only trouble would be the cost!
