I7-9700k, Rtx 2080s, rog strix z390 e, 500gb 970 evo, 1tb silicon power m.2 + multiples hdds for 15tb more and a 32gb optane module.
But I’m buying the model 3 because I’ll get the Ps5 and if I will make good investments I’ll get a 3080 or 3090 next year
Ordered the 1440p 240Hz model. My PC contains an 3900X, 16GB of RAM running at 3800MHz CL14, 1080Ti (to be upgraded with the new nVidia series probably) and a 1TB Corsair MP600 SSD. It’s all watercooled and stuff as seen here: https://i.imgur.com/TS3Y65a.jpg
Well, a monitor can last you through many PCs. I personally got the 4K 144Hz model, which currently only the most expensive GPU can run, so I’ll be running it at upscaled 1080p or 1440p until I can get a GPU that can fully take advantage of it. Meanwhile, the 4K resolution will be great for my other tasks.
I went back and forth on 4k a lot, but honestly I think for desktop computing it’s too high a resolution for a 27" monitor, so you end up needing to use display scaling to get a decent content size. Display scaling is a horrible experience on Windows, especially if the scaling doesn’t match across multiple monitors - but I don’t think it’d bother me if I was exclusively a mac user. 1440p seems like the sweet spot for 27in to me at native resolution. The fact that I can drive it with a much lower spec’d machine is just a nice side-effect.
The biggest drawback with 1440p is that you can’t do integer scaling up from 1080p or down from 4k content (just up from 720p and 480p/360p/240p) which is mostly an issue when supporting current gen consoles or working with video content (either 1080p or 4k need interpolation during scaling - big issue for content creators).
If it weren’t for the density thing I think I’d have pulled the trigger on something like the Predator x27 a long time ago, as I think the display HDR 1000 certification and color accuracy is appealing, you just need to go all the way up to like 42" before you get something close to good native content densities at 4k (or alternatively, go with a 24" 4k monitor and then you at least get integer scaling down). The reason I’m looking at a Spectrum because it’s the first monitor I’ve seen that has most of my wish-list: Good color, 27 inch @ 1440p, good HDR, G-Sync compatible, and USB Type-C. The only thing that has me thinking of canceling my pre-order is the lack of support for daisy chaining…
I’ve gone for the 4k 144hz. I haven’t actually got a gaming rig yet, I’m waiting for the spectrum to ship and I’m going to build the pc around it. I have no clue what I’m doing so hopefully it will all work out ok!
The main games I will be playing is FPS like cod and diablo 4.
Was struggling to choose between the 240hz and the 4k model but plenty of videos have said there’s not a major noticeable difference between 144 and 240 so I’ve gone for the 4k for future proofing
