I’ve always been a FP shooter gamer and competitive so I currently use 24.5 inch 240hz rog monitors at 1080.

Recently I started playing more RPG games to unwind and chill out. My current pc is pretty decent (3950x/2080ti) and my next build with next gen hardware when it comes out will be another set up. So I figure if I’m going to play some RPG games I wanna experience the 4K.

I’m out of my depth but a decent 28” or bigger 4K monitor looks like it costs about the same as a 43” 4K tv. Seen as input delay shouldn’t really matter much. As long as it’s under 10 I don’t see a problem for these types of games. Which would you choose and why?

I was leaning towards tv as I can wall mount it looking nice above my current monitors and and kick back on the couch I have in my games room and play and enjoy.

I went through Divinity Original sin 1 twice with 42" TV and Xbox controller, I loved it.

Played a bit of Witcher 3 as well and also enjoyed it.

Now playing DOS 2, same (though wireless mouse/keyboard is finally better than controller IMO).

I'd say go for it!

I’m currently playing Witcher 3 and really enjoying it. Never gave these types of games a go. Always been a shooter and competitive so this is just great to chill and play. I found a really decent stated 43” 4K tv with only 8m/s input delay and 100hz refresh for $690aud can’t even find a monitor of the same input delay and refresh as a 4K for that price
