I'm afraid I'll never enjoy the benefits of GSync.

Talk about NVIDIA G-SYNC, a variable refresh rate (VRR) technology. G-SYNC eliminates stutters, tearing, and reduces input lag.

sure it's a little more, but not much.

Well it's 20% so if you're used to everything being that much larger, I can see why you might want to use 125% scaling - but you're going to have a bad time if you do, especially on Windows 7.

Personally I want more workspace so I'm tempted to go with a 2560x1440 monitor rather than waiting for the new 3840x2160 ones, since DisplayPort 1.3 only offers 5K at 60Hz over a single cable rather than high refresh rates.

However if DaveKap were to switch to Windows 10 and use 200% scaling, I think he would prefer a 3840x2160 monitor - especially since many of the new 4K monitors seem to be 32" in size rather than 27" now.

I appreciate this consideration but I am not getting a 4K monitor until it can hit 120hz which I know won't be for a while. I don't need the space and 4K is really, really not necessary for my desktop. When I get one, it's going to be for TV. ;) But yes, that 20% difference is very noticeable and I suppose that explains my issue with the monitor. So I guess that means I need a 32" monitor to match the dpi, which means a 4 figure price for all the other things I want, not to mention it doesn't seem to exist anyway... just like the 1080 monitor I want! Yeah, hopeless.

Hello, first post in here, but being around for some time.
I'm in the same position : looking for a successor for my still working 2009 Samsung 2233RZ (after a transformer change for the backlight).
120Hz, IPS or VA, 1920x1080 or 1920x1200.
Acer nearly made it with the Acer Predator Z271-bmiphz, still missing a flat panel though...
