      Something around 40" and I'm interested!

      There is definitely a hole to be filled here. The big TV makers have not been good to gamers, especially PC gamers.

      Yeh, I used to use the Philips 40" 4K monitor before replacing it with my current Asus Rog Swift.
      Having the benefits of both monitors in one would be the perfect monitor.

      Couch level pc gaming?

      Around 40 inch ultrawide is where I see it going in reality. I hope really. Be a few years before in the good price range.

      I'm currently sat in front of the 43" Philips, the PPI is perfectly for native 4k, while the screen is still large enough to make games look amazing; previously I used the 40" Philips (which is now my second monitor) and it was just a tad too small, text was readable but not comfortably so.

      If I could make any monitor of my choosing it'd be in a range of 43-46" in size and curved (because the sides of the screen are further from you than the centre and it's noticeable) with all the gsync, 120", hdr gubbins would be absolutely perfect. I'd buy three for the ultimate desktop setup.

      Here's a picture I took the other day:

      4K 120Hz Gaming TV from NVIDIA!?


      i would use one of these large screen monitors to replace my normal TV
      i don't watch tv anyways , a bit of now tv and netflix every now again ( which is built in to my sammy tv )
      having one of these would get me out of the man cave and start me to use my whole again in stead of just sitting in the man cave most of the time . ( haha.... sad i know :blush:)

      Given how much they charge for tiny screens the price on this will be ridiculous.

      Eh, no it wouldn't. All serious sim racers (the ones who spend tons on the wheels/pedals/motion rigs) are all going VR now, because it is a million times more realistic and immersive than sitting in front of any flat screen monitor/TV. Anyone that has sim-raced in VR have said they will never go back to old flat screen 2D racing. I have experienced it myself and agree 100% with them.

      I'd get this to replace my TV but I'd also want the FreeSync/Adaptive Sync that comes with HDMI 2.1 (for the Xbox One X). Not sure if they would do GSync over DisplayPort and FreeSync over HDMI 2.1.

      VR will eventually be the way to go for sim racing but at this point I would still buy a big high refresh monitor.

      I bought an Asus Rog Swift monitor and an Oculus Rift in July 2016. The Rift for sim racing and the high refresh monitor for other games. Ended up selling the Rift, it fell short in too many areas. Give it a few more years and VR should be good. Vive Pro already increased the resolution but probably not enough yet.

      Could be patched in though freesync is open source and software based.

      Fell short how? Did you actually play any sim racers on it? What kind of sim hardware did you use with it? I have Dirt Rally, Assetto Corsa, Raceroom and have tried demo of Project Cars 2 (which i didn't like) and they were all much more immersive and realistic than any monitor. Also software has improved a lot in last two years on Oculus with Dash, and the hardware with the Touch controllers is way more realistic than the original XBox controller they provided. You should try Rift again now.

      Lot's of sim racers have stuck with triple screens or one high refresh rate screen. Usually it's the lower perceived resolution and/or the lower FOV plus the potential in some for nausea.

      It is very person dependant at the moment and will be until it is at least as sharp looking as a TV if not sharper because when you are looking at an image which simulates real life deficiencies become more obvious.

      For me at least it becomes very obvious just how terrible lighting in video games actually is. Like it already doesn't come close to CGI when compared but in VR it is even more obvious. Then things like aliasing is magnified significantly it's no worse in VR but it's like those digital foundation comparisons where they zoom in to compare differences in 2D it's not that obvious but have a magnifying glass to it and it is.

      That being said I would always pick VR over 2D simply because I find depth perception and scale is far more natural to drive in than a flat screen. I can judge distances better, I can see in the distance better despite the lower resolution. I don't need to read the distance markers like some people claim screws them because I can see the relative distance easily.

      I would be intrigued to see a study on it but I reckon those who have grown up active and developed their proprioception will prefer VR and those who haven't (or just suck at sport) and trained their skills on a flat screen are going to prefer monitors.

      From my testing put any normal person who doesn't really play video games on a rig with a monitor and they all go flying off because they can't judge speed or distance. Put them in VR and they drive around at normal road speeds thinking they are going too fast all the time it's really interesting to watch.

      Also just as an FYI his sim gear was probably much better than yours ;)

      Assetto Corsa, Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Pro and Accuforce Pro wheel.

      VR is more immersive and natural sure but resolution wasn't acceptable to me. I wanted the corners to come into focus sooner than they did. Optics weren't that good either, artifacts, sweet spot etc. Comfort wasn't good, it was summer and I couldn't put the headset on for more than two minutes before starting to sweat.

      Give it another couple of years and VR will be great. It's simply not good enough for me yet.

      Yes I have found those who have tried out racing, and who actually can drive a car in real life, drive much more realistically using VR/pedals/wheel than on monitors. Everything in it is much better approximating real life driving experience they have.

      I got the sister-in-law (who is a big F1 fan but not a gamer at all) to try out the special F1 expansion pack for Assetto Corsa and gave her the big loud v12 2004 Ferrari F1 to try and she was absolutely gobsmacked and loved it. I know for a fact if that was just on screen or even on triple screen (which I have had for years) she would not be as impressed at all. And Assetto isn't even state-of-the-art graphics wise.

      But let's not get into the whole "my sim rig is more expensive than yours" stuff ;)

      How u guys find 65'' size for gaming whether with consoles or PC Gaming ? Do u think this will be better than 34''/35'' ultrawide gaming monitors or prefer 21:9 with small monitors on 16:9 even if it was a big TV ?
      For me i have no prolem about 65'' size , i can make this BFGD for only Gaming and TV Movies only and using smaller size for productivity and surfing the internet .

      @mms123 I've a 63" plasma and while its fun I do think its too big for gaming. I find myself looking around the screen meaning I'm not taking everything in.

      You could say well sit further back, and while I could, what would be the point of a big telly then? I do think we focus on things differently at different distances. For example, think about reading a book, very comfortable 18 inches from your face to stare at for a long time. Now imagine that was a room away but the letters blown up to fill the same volume of your FOV as the book from 18 inches. I suspect not so comfortable.

      For me, 40 inches from 1 to 1.5m is the sweet spot. And unfortunately that's not a size well catered for by gaming monitors.
