I am currently editing video & photo on my Mac Pro 2013 with dual D700's. I edit 4k/5k/6k video and 50+ mp photos. I am also building a skylake 6700/980gtx Ti gaming computer soon. I have decided to go display port for both computer setups so I can have 4k @ 60hz. I want a monitor that is a balance for both my gaming & editing.

I am currently editing on a Apple thunderbolt display with a resolution of 2560 x1440. I just want 4k. Thunderbolt is a very nice display just not 4k.

I have narrowed it down to the 2 options below. Which of the two is the better choice? Quite a few representatives at B&H today recommended the BenQ. Also if either of these monitors were set to the same resolution of the Apple Thunderbolt display would they at the very least be equal in terms of color accuracy, and over quality picture?





EDIT: Also just wanted to confirm that my 980GTX Ti will output audio via display port just like they do with HDMI?
