OMG. This is the best monitor I've ever used and I'm mad I didn't buy one sooner.

NOW, to save up and buy a 27" 4k next year and turn this one vertical as a secondary monitor.

4K is meh for gaming for the foreseeable future. I'd see about getting a 27" 1440P 144Hz unit.

It depends. I'm definitely planning on going 4K for Scorpio but I still haven't seen a good reason to go above 1440P for PC gaming.

I know plenty of people who would ask the same question about PC platforms.
