Hey there.
I'm about to buy my first desktop and having a hard time deciding what type of monitor to go with. At the same time i'll be upgrading my tv to either the LG CX or C1. So i'll be using the OLED TV sometimes when playing. Though I'm not the only one going to use the TV. Therefore I'll also need a monitor.
Now, i've heard that the image quality when going from OLED to LED, or pretty much anything besides OLED, is worlds apart. So i want minimize that feeling, now that OLED monitors really isn't a big thing yet.
I would like it being minimum 2560 x 1440 pixels but preferably 4k.
The PC is gonna be powered by either a 2080 ti, a 3080 or 3080 ti when released. So I would like to get a screen that will use that kind of power and play mostly at 1440p or 4k resolution. I don't play a lot of fast-paced competitive games. Picture quality is what weighs most for me.
Any feedback would be helpful. If I need to clarify anything else please say so!
In advance, have a nice day!
Budget is around 800$, may also be a bit higher. I've been looking at samsung G7 or a LG UltraGear series monitor.
 
FWIW, I am now using the 40" LG OLED TV and a 3070 graphics card. (about the capability of a RTX2080ti)
Yes, the picture is stunning but the price is in the $1300 range.
Only the 3000 series cards are going to have hdmi 2.1 which is necessary to run the monitor past 60hz.
You need an ultra hdmi cable also.

How do you plan to share a tv and a gaming monitor?
The TV and the larger 55/65" variants will have multiple hdmi inputs along with wifi and ethernet inputs.
You could use the remote to easily switch.

What size do you want for the second monitor?
Before, I used a 40" philips BDM4065UC that worked well using displayport at 60hz.
I imagine that this 43" unit would be similar:

There are some interesting 49" curved units, but I did not like the relatively low height.

I’m living in a small-ish apartment with my girlfriend. So the TV will be used by me when gaming sometimes and then we also will use it just to watch. Therefore I also need a monitor, to play when she uses the TV.
The monitor should be around 27" or 32".
