Okay so you want a pros and cons for each monitor? and ill check 4k on that AMD card for you
Yes please
Ryan R.
So, it can drive 4k, But you might have to play on lower settings like medium for it too look good in games, for Photoshop and video stuff, it would be able to handle 4k perfectly
Those two monitors are not 4k. Aren't they?
Ryan R.
So this is where things get confusing now of days
Never mind
i read the first dimention wrong
they are 2k monitors
my bad haha thought it was 3560 x 11440
Would my video card run games smooth on these two monitors?
Ryan R.
yeah! easily!
Which one would you buy then?
Ryan R.
im comparing the specs right now, but they are super similar
Im going to go with the Acer on this one, Its the same specs, but like 1/3 the weight of the Asus, I dont like the red on the Acer, and for me that would be a deal breaker, but im not sure if you are that uptight about things like that.
I don't care about the look. I care about performance and $.
Ryan R.
From a performance to $ ratio, i would go Acer
Thank you. That helps a lot.
Ryan R.
no problem! sorry for the confuion earlier
No worry it happens
