4K Gaming Display

Hello everyone,
I am here to inquire about purchasing a new Monitor for PC Gaming. I currently use 3x LG 24en33 23.6" monitors running off of 2x 7970 OC with 3GB RAM. I have two main concerns on this issue; most importantly will I be able to run a 4k setup with my current graphics cards. If so, what monitor do you recommend? I have 4 months to decide before I buy this for myself as an early christmas present so no rush ;)

  1. Within the next months the market will be flooded with new 4k monitors, so the best option for you probably hasn't been launched yet :p
  2. That is very true, I read an article about Samsung, Intel and a few other companies teaming up to create an IPS panel that has reasonable specs by the end of the year for around $400. http://goo.gl/H4Z3VE
    As for the possibility of me using 2x 7970's for 4K gaming, do you think it would be feasible to run games such as battlefield 4 and other popular titles on this setup?
  3. You should be fine, but expect around 30 fps.

    If you want a TV, the only way to go is Panasonic. It is the only TV with a DP 1.2 connector... seriously a shame since 4k is for PC only and HDMI 2.0 is not even on any graphic card.
  4. Oh, I forgot to ask, would I be able to run 4k off of an active mini display port? I tried researching this to no avail, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes, your system can run 4k, but not smooth as a baby's bottom of course

    Would I need a special connector for minidisplay port to displayport for my new monitor to be able to run 4k at 60Hz?

    No, I don't think so

  9. You don't need a special cable but the monitor might be running display port 1.1, if so you will need to go through the monitors settings and change it to 1.2.
