    Wow, last time I looked at a PC monitor, in what seems like ages ago, 30 inch was a as big as they came, without gaming refresh rate, nor 4K, for around that price. Once you stop following tech advancement, you really notice it when you do.

    Saying that, I wonder how confortable 43 inch is when it is right in front of you.

    (Could be handy when working with multiple spreadsheet too.. though I suppose that for productivity, it might still be easier to work on two smaller screens than a large one)

    The biggest hurdle for this is maximising the 4K120.

    Can't help but feel you'd be better off picking up an OLED for the same money if you can squeeze a 55" in to your setup.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Price doesn't seem too bad??? Maybe I've been desensitised by the prices of recent GSync models and LG UW???

    I had a 40-inch TV as my main monitor until recently, more for productivity than gaming, as you said. They work well if wall-mounted and on quite a deep table, things in the top left or right corner might require a bit of head movement but that's it.

    I was going to get this monitor as a replacement but ended up with the Samsung C49RG90 ultra-wide!
