I'm gonna bump this topic...

 

I'm about to pull the trigger on a system (as soon as the i7 6700 is back in stock on Newegg) and will be running a 980 TI.

 

I initially was pretty sold on the 34'' Dell curved monitor but recently I've started to read mkre and more good things about 4k. If I went the 4k route, I'd probabky opt for the 40''. I see there is a 40'' curved Samsung model which would combine the best of both worlds, but it's a TV whixh I've read generally has a worse picture up close.

 

Thoughts? Oh and I use TrackIR if that makes a difference.

 

Thanks,

 

Ben

I sit about 1 meter from a curved 65" Samsung 4K and the picture is very good, not perfect, but good enough to forget about quality and just get involved in the sim so I don't think you will have any complaints about a 40".

Also a TV is going to give you much more vertical space than the widescreen of course. Those 34" widescreens are really very small in the vertical direction.

The widescreen would be a better choice if you do more desktop work than simming.

4K and 32", for me, is a nice mix of wider field-of-view and just enough on-screen pixel density to mitigate aliasing, and keep gauges readable
