    if you are sure to get another 780 , then go for Asus 4K .

    From the two mmonitors your looking at I would go with the 4k. Just because they are the same price you might as wel go with the faster; higher resolurion monitor.

    I wouldn't get either of those. Look at the Toms articled did you see that tempest? It hasd an IPS screen with descent response time AND can go above 60 hz. Not ot mention cheaper. Both of those monitors use crappy TN panels.
  3. Get the 4k monitor, if you want the most detailed visual appearance. But the 32 inch 1440p is quite promising for work.
    Game or work.
    4k gaming will need at least 2 780s or even more if you expect 60fps.
    TN or IPS will be personal, I have both and for most part they looked the same as I am looking directly in front of them.
