    I was thinking about it, but if pg278q is any indication of when they are bringing it to the market, i'll pass. I don't want to be waiting next few months.
    "The Acer XB280HK starts shipping in Q2 in Pan America, EMEA, Japan, and Taiwan." well, we are almost in Q3 and there is no info about this monitor being for sale any time soon. :|

    yeah, i meant to say Q4... but my point stands.
    Right now, I'm running 2 GTX 780, I hope that they will be able to handle 3D in that resolution with medium to high settings. I can't possibly expect to be running those 2 cards in 4k (in plain 2d) with same settings. I don't think that even next generation 880 Ti or Black ( or whatever new name scheme is going to be) will be able to handle 4k with proper high settings even in SLI (tri or quad maybe but it's out of my budget range) So for now, this monitor should be "good enough".

    You mean, newer one as in Maxwell? Yeah, i know. Leaked info about 870 shows that it's supposed to be as good if not better than 780 Ti, but we will see.

    Fun info in Polish language - http://pclab.pl/art59113-6.html shows that PG278Q will show WHOLE SYSTEM input lag of 9 ms. They were testing it at 700 fps in GRID Autosport. It takes 1.5 ms to render 1 frame at that framerate and can be deducted from the WHOLE SYSTEM input lag. I guess you could deduct 1 ms delay from pulling rate of a mouse @1000 ms, but they didn't say anything about it, that's just my guess. There is more info to come in following weeks, more tests from them.
    Another fun fact, CRT were slower on newer cards, with converter from digital to analogue. Older cards that were made with Analogue outputs in mind make CRT go faster than LCD. Another observation that i made was that it takes about 10 ms to convert digital to analogue and vice versa.
