My System Specs

Just wish they made a 34-inch version as it probably would be the best of both worlds. Sharp text... but less setup issues.

Could a 980 push it? Sure. G-Sync is what makes it possible. You could probably do it with a 970. Will you have to worry about the "60FPS limit"... probably not. But gaming is certainly possible!

For an idea on what you need... this monitor demands 497.6 million pixels per second to max it out. This is about the same as a 1440P monitor at 135 frames per second. To hit 30fps its about the same as 1440P at 68FPS. So it is high... but doable with one 980.
My question to you is, on a 27" screen do you think there is an evident improvement in clarity by having 4k over 1440P (assuming all else equal....color reproduction/refresh rates/etc)?

The reason why I ask it that at ~21" 1080p is fine IMO. I find around a 23-24" screen the max for a monitor at 1080p. Then 27" I preferred 1440p. Having not played with any high end monitors, I am wonder what your take is on strictly resolution at that size. Is it notable? Is it worth pushing all the extra pixels?
