    I currently have a 7 yrs old 30 inch wide Dell monitor.

    Would this monitor work?

    I would like to setup like you had the 4 minions on the bottom. I dont need 4k viewing, I just want the main toon to have a decent size so I see what's going on main with a little access to see what the others are doing.
    Would two of these be significantly better than one larger monitor?

    In my opinion, I think 1080p stops looking acceptable after ~27" where the pixels reach the point where they can become noticeable, which can affects image crispness.

    It's hard to say because it's subjective—some people swear by using multiple displays—but after switching to a single large display, I certainly enjoy using a single large display for everything.

    Agree 100% with MiRai. I have 2x Samsung 4k 27" and I can barely stand 1080 on them. When not gaming I'm running them @ 2560x1440. So i imagine 2560 x 1080 would look odd and stretched to me. I've seen several peolpe *swear* by ultrawide displays. I just don't think I'd pay > $200 and only have 1080.

    I was tempted to go this route, but utlimately I was able to snag my 2x 27"s for cheaper than a 40". Also having tried a single 40" for about 2 seconds a long time ago @ MiRai's place I don't think I could get used to it.

    From a systems performance standpoint, will there be a difference in running two 27s uhd at 1080p versus a 40 uhd 4k?

    I am going to use the PC listed in first post, any recommendations? Looking to spend less than 1k for the monitor(s).

    What are good response times less than 5ms?

    And for the hz, 60hz ok?

    Yes, 4K is four times as many pixels as 1080p, and requires more power to run.

    All of my monitors have come direct from Korea through eBay sellers, which has plenty of risks involved, but so far it's been good to me. Unfortunately, without doing a bunch of research, I don't have any current recommendations.

    Those numbers generally mean very little, as there is no standard and manufacturers can practically put any number they want on there.

    Again, subjective. Some people use 75/90/120/144Hz and then claim that they can never go back to using 60Hz. I've not used anything other than 60Hz, so I couldn't say.

    I'll just chime in here and say that there is a difference even between a 4K monitor (8,294,400 pixels) and two 1440p monitors (7,372,800 pixels total), with the 4K being notably more observable load on my 980Ti 6GB card. I stuck with a couple of 32" 1440p displays which were the best performance with that GPU and a 6600K CPU. Your selected 2070 should be a lot more capable at 4k than mine, so there's that, though if you're wanting to do streaming and a bunch of other stuff while gaming, this might be worth some thought.

    Also, do your research on motherboards before you pull the trigger if you're gonna use a M.2 NVME SSD (unless you plan to use one of the Intel PCI-E adapter boards). I've noted some people (me included) have had issues getting proper PCI lane and SSD write performance (probably related) out of the M.2 cards using on-motherboard connectors, even using two of them in RAID 0 (which exposed even more latent OS boot issues, don't get me started). I just gave up on it and went back to a couple of Samsung 840 Pro SATA SSDs, which gives me "close enough" performance at a cheaper price point and didn't mess with my PCI lane usability. Newer chipsets hopefully have resolved most of that but do your homework.

    Going to try this monitor, it has a 90 day no question return, if this doesn't work I can try the dual 27s.

    LG 43UD79-B 43" Class Ultra HD 4K IPS Monitor

    • UHD [3840 x 2160] Resolution
    • NTSC 72% Color Gamut
    • HDCP 2.2 Compatible
    • 60Hz Refresh Rate



    Thanks for the info all!

    All my gaming is on my LG 1440p ultrawide. If a game doesn't support 3440 x 1440 I find mods that will do it.

    Then I have a couple other monitors in 1080p for windows / apps and streaming services (Youtube / Twitch / etc).

    Things can be sluggish if I'm 5 boxing retail and watching a stream. So I offload that work sometimes to a PS4.
