Hello,

I've been toying this upgrade for a while. I'm currently using a Dell U3011 (2560x1600, 30") at about 30" view distance.

I've been looking at a XB321HK for a nice IPS 4k panel upgrade, but I was looking at a spreadsheet that says at my current view distance, 4k will be indistinguishable from my 1600p.
I don't competitive game, and only play RPG type games like WoW and the Witcher 3. Would upgrading to a 32" 4k IPS panel be worth it? Like a Xb321hk.

PC specs: 7700k @ 5 ghz
32gb 3200mhz ddr 4
2080 ti
Thanks!
 
It's not just detail. At 4K you can fit more content on screen. As far as gaming is concerned. There probably won't be much difference. Although the newer panel will likely have a faster response time, richer colours, better contrast and use less power. While definition may not appear appreciably better. Gaming will likely be more vibrant and smoother.
