If you’re a gamer, you’ve likely been considering upgrading your current system to allow for a 4k experience. Today, we’ll take a look at some of the pros and cons of 4k monitors and how they’ll affect your gaming experience.


The Pros:

  • 4k monitors offer a clean and crisp gaming experience. The ultra-high resolution of these monitors will allow you to make the most of new releases, immersing you in the world of the game with crystal-clear graphics that make the digital world as realistic as possible.
  • These monitors can transform the graphics of older games. Even low-graphic quality MMOs available online will look absolutely stellar with a 4k display. You’ll be able to run older games at the highest graphics settings, maxing out their potential, and seeing the world like never before.
  • As the technology progresses, costs go down. That’s right – the longer you wait, the cheaper the technology gets. As new displays hit the market, many older models see a price cut, making it even more affordable for you to upgrade your displays!
  • These displays are compatible with our wall mounts and dual monitor mount solutions. You’ll still be able to customize your gaming setup with your favorite mounts!

    The Cons:

    • For many newer games, you’ll need an extremely powerful computer to make the most of the 4k graphics. While older games are able to run on a single graphics card, newer games will require more power in order to run at optimal settings.
    • It’s an investment. If you’re looking to get the latest and greatest 4k monitor, you’ll have to pay at least 400 dollars to get a high-quality display.
