    DWL! NO WHERE OUT YAH NO HAVE DAT! Just get a proper monitor you can get reasonably price 75Hz-144Hz TN or IPS panel monitor to go along with your GPU. A TV is a no no in my book for a GPU of that caliber, How much of a gamer are you?

    okay so i guess a tv is not a good idea so what should i look for when choosing a monitor?

    Im not that much of a gamer currently because i don't have a dedicated gaming system but whenever i go to my friends house and pick up that controller i don't want to put it back down lol.

    LOL. So i can assume that you have never used a mouse and keyboard for gaming then? But you still can use a controller non the less. To find a good monitor is the same as trying to find the other parts of your system. Brand, specs and price. The best brands are Asus, Benq, LG and samsung. Next is specs, I will suggest 144Hz, 1-5ms GTG TN or IPS panel and to get a good one it's gonna be pretty close to the cost of your GPU but i think you can find cheaper.

    You're not gonna get past them with the items looking brand new and still in the packages.

    That's a risky proposition because you have to make sure the components inside doesn't wobble and the agents don't know how to handle that kind of tech and might damage it.

    That isn't necessarily true. But for Gaming and load times you're probably correct.

    In production environments with large files R/W speed makes a world of difference.

    Tv is ok for gaming and watching videos.

    For reading etc... it is not good.

    Lots of people buy 4k tvs instead of monitors these days and have no problem.

    I cant tell the difference between the milliseconds a good ssd vs a very good with loading times.
