Yes plz! And with it a pricecut on the GTX 760-80. Haven't decided which one to buy yet! But I wanted to wait for the 800-series to arrive!

The 880 should be as good as an improvement as the last several, 580 680 was around 30% each time. So 10-20 frames improvement in top tier games? Crysis3 on a 580 30fps, 680 50fps, 780 60fps, 880 4k?

I gave up on waiting and picked up 2 GTX 780 Ti Classified Kingpins. Since I'm only interested in 1080p triples for now I didn't see a need to wait. I figure it's going to take an additional year before the top card manufacturers bring out their versions of the 880 with more memory, higher speeds and overall better performance. Besides I never jump right into new tech. It's always best to wait until the kinks are ironed out and revisions and updates are made.

I probably wont make the jump into 4k until I can do it with triple panel 4k displays. I doubt that will happen for another few years. At least at max settings and no less than 60fps on all games. Besides most higher resolution monitors have a fair amount of input lag. Most of them average more than 3 frames per second.

My 1080ps have less than 0.5fps input lag. That matters most to me when gaming online. What's the point of having prettier graphics if your enemy has a 2.5 frame rate advantage over you? It's the difference between I owned that b!tch vs "WTF, NO WAY IN H3LL! THAT GUY HAD HIS BACK TO ME WHEN I STARTED FIRING!"

So these new GPUs and graphics cards wont do me much good for now. I am hitting max settings in 1080p at or over 60fps on just one 780 Ti Classified. With both enabled my frame rates are off the charts and I can run any game at max settings and over 60fps. Even and including BF4 and Crysis 3. I can't do without my triple panels and low input latency. Although 4k does look amazing.

Who knows maybe I will get one 4K display to play certain PC games offline and use my triples for online gaming only. Best of both worlds. Great now my wallet is cringing again.

I was thinking about getting one like this in a few months when I've seen some reviews. The price should have gone down by then by a bit as well -

28" 4k with 1ms response time. Looks pretty good, but I'd like to see some reviews first.

That looks like a decent monitor. The only draw back for me is it being only 60hz. 1ms sounds nice but I wonder what the true input lag measures?

I should've never entered this article. Now I'm craving a 4k monitor and I just dropped a small fortune on upgrading my existing rig.

Oh well time to do some more research.

I've been gaming at 4k 30hz on a pos seiki for over a year, and as bad as that is the 4k on single player games are great. Now I'm on a 60 hz and it's fantastic. Now I want a second titan though.

I think I might sell my GPU this month. I have not been playing on PC lately and it would be nice to pocket the cash while the sell price is still up, then pick up a 800 series card when they release.
