4k and anything above 17" should work. 21-24" works well and everything above is just nice.

Re: ***Official Laptop/Monitor/Computer/Grinding Equipment Discussion Thread***

Hi, I just bought a LG 32" 32UD59 IPS 4K Freesync HDMI Gaming Monitor to go along with my 2 22" monitors. I have it set at 3840 x 2160 resolution but the picture quality is poor and is much clearer on my other monitors. When i have pokerstars tables open at default size the image quality on the 22" monitor is much sharper than the 32" monitor. I have the new monitor connected to my graphics card with the HDMI cable thatt came with it.
I know very little about setting things like this up so any help would be appreciated.

You probably have it running at 30hz, instead of 60hz. I have to go into my graphics card control panel and change it from 30hz to 60hz.

No idea what graphics card you have, but it might be that you can't run it at 60hz, or you need to use a display port/mini display port rather than HDMI.

Thanks for your help. It looks like my graphics card can't support this monitor . It only allows me to run it at max 30hz. I have a amd radeon r9 200 series graphics card. Any ideas on which graphics card I should get to run this properly ?

Waiting on delivery for dell xps 13 - new XPS line is excellent for poker. If you have the budget XPS 15 is a great pick - rumored to have a 5k screen on release.

Not so much need for a monitor with these kind of resolutions - might pick up computer glasses with some magnifcation if the tables are too small.

Re: ***Official Laptop/Monitor/Computer/Grinding Equipment Discussion Thread***

Anyone has experience playing on a 4k monitor on 30hz? If so how is it?

I am thinking about to buy one, my video card can do the 4k resulution but my hdmi port is not 2.0, so it wouldn't support the 60hz. Any solution to solve this?

I'd imagine that it would be still fine for poker but videos and esp. gaming would be hit. As far as solutions go I'd doubt there's a cheap one.

And as far as refresh rate goes if you use Windows 10 you can check yourself by -> right click on desktop -> display settings -> display adapter properties -> monitor -> screen refresh rate -> change it to 30Hertz.

30hz on a 4k monitor is not advisable. The mouse pointer will be extremely laggy. Once u change to 60hz its fine.

All of the monitors you linked will provide the same amount of workable desktop space (they are all 1080p) There are some differences between them, none of which will impact your needs. The dell IPS would be better if viewing angles and video editing were more of a priority.

I'd say if you're playing 10 tables to consider spending extra on a 2560x1440 resolution.

Re: ***Official Laptop/Monitor/Computer/Grinding Equipment Discussion Thread***

I know this stuff gets asked all the time so I'll offer $20 on paypal if I purchase something that gets recommended to me.

I've had nothing but macs for the past decade so completely clueless about PCs.

Looking for a desktop computer <$1000 that can support multiple android emulators running as well as pio. No gaming or anything like that.

a friend recently got the second one and is happy with it. pretty much anything along these specs should be more than enough. pretty much just the looks across companies that are gonna make much difference
