I live at my screens all day long - and the more real estate the better. I have my work set open and plenty of room for disruptions without having to reposition everything.
And since its detailed and up close, pixel density is important - I don’t want to see ‘dots’ forming letters. And of course, I need my primary monitor to be driver by the Nvidia graphics card while text/forms/email is fine using the native Intel graphics.
So in this situation I really like 4k resolution. I don’t do gaming so 60hz refresh is sufficient but my rig happens to do 120hz at 4k.
This Christmas I added an 8k, 75-inch as my primary monitor. Now the 65-in 4k is the righthand display. Its great but took a while to get the font sizes and defaults tweaked correctly.
The end result: 8k resolution is nice but the real nice park is the 8k screen. It turns out that 4k on the 8k display looks so much better than native 4k displays. If I had a good 4k graphics card I would be tempted to add an 8k-capable display just to get the ‘tight pixel’ crispness - setting 4k on my 8k looks so much better than the 4k on 4k next to it.
Here is my setup:
