Also please correct me if I get any of this terminology wrong I'm new here and don't want to be new forever.

With 2160p60hz monitors starting to become more and more reasonably priced, would it make sense for me to get a 4k monitor? I've been thinking about how the scaling should work with monitors but I don't know if it actually works this way so I'm hoping someone could help me out .

**So if 1080p is 1/4 the pixels of 2160p would a 2160p60Hz monitor be able to do 240Hz at 1080p?**

There is a thread on overclockers.net where a guy was able to get his Seiki 39inch to do:

3840x2160 @ 33Hz

3200x1800 @ 47Hz

2560x1440 @ 72Hz

1920x1080 @ 125Hz

graphed*: *rounded to nearest 10 and yes that's notepad.

I think that this shows the scaling that I'm talking about but I also realize that for the Seiki monitor, it's a bit odd since it seems to be hitting the limit for hdmi...

So ill just run through the math for what should be the theoretical highest Hz for the Seiki monitor at different resolutions according to the logic I started this topic with...

3840*2160= 8294400

3200*1800= 5760000

8294400/5760000= 1.44

33hz*1.44= 47Hz

**theoretical if 2160p@33Hz:**

1800p = 47Hz

1440p = 74Hz

1080p = 132Hz

So obviously there is a discrepancy between the theoretical Hz at different resolutions and the real world Hz.

If you could get a 2160p60Hz monitor to 64Hz theoretically you should be able to get 1440p144Hz But if you consider how the Seiki monitor scaled to 1440p the real world Hz should be about 138Hz.

**My questions are:**

How well do 2160p60Hz monitors scale, and has anyone tried overclocking a 2160p60Hz monitor?
