Replacing my 4 monitors

Hello folks!

I’ve been following the Monitor topics here, hoping to upgrade my setup.

I have a 4-monitor setup - 2 up/2down:
The top two are Samsung 27" monitors, 1920x1080 60Hz
The bottom two are LG 22" monitors, 1920 x 1080 60hz

I run these via 2 x Nvidia GEForce 8600 GTS graphic cards.

Is it possible to replace these with a 1 monitor setup?
What would I need to achieve this?

CPU is i7 4790 / Asus Z97 Deluxe / 32Gb Mem

Yes, a 4K TV, which has exactly the same number of pixels as you have now.
Check the Cubase and 4K monitors? thread.

Note that to have the same size pixel as your 27", a 4K would have to be 2 x 27" = 54", with 55" being the typical size available. However, a 48" might be a better overall size.

The only issue is that your current video cards cannot drive one, as they mostly need HDMI 1.4 or 2.0.

Many 4K TVs accept HDMI 2.0, which allow up to 3840x2160@60Hz, but except for the top end nVidias, no video cards go above HDMI 1.4, at up to 3840x2160@30Hz, which is fine for most computer use except serious gaming.

I bought a Gigabyte GV-N750OC-2GI as an interim, until HDMI 2.0 cards come out with the same low power and quiet fan. It is currently driving my 4K and three Dell S2340T FHD touchscreens.

Do not hesitate to ask any more questions.

What was the LG monitors like to work with? What model are they please?


LG W2246 -

All monitors have worked well - just looking for more “real estate” on screen,
hence the desire to move up to either 2560 or 4k
