Hi guy’s, I’m hoping you can give me some feedback on what 4K monitor to get as after many years of being without a PC I have just ordered an R12 with 3080 etc.
I’m a bit confused with DisplayPort vs HDMI 2.1 though, as I understand it the 3080 comes with HDMI 2.1 and also DisplayPort but I’ve no idea which one?
Should I be looking at an AW3821DW or would something from an another manufacturer be better?
Ie LG UltraGear 27GP950
Acer XV282K
Asus ROG Swift pg32uq

Ideally I’d prefer a screen in the 30+ inch bracket but not to the detriment of picture quality and fps.

Many thanks

ive just bought the new SAMSUNG Odyssey G7 LS28AG700NUXXU as I want to use my console on my monitor so the series x or ps5 to plan them at 4k 120hz you need HDMI 2.1 but if you just going to be going with pc gaming the display port will work for you I was looking at the Alienware AW2721D to match my pc but went with the HDMI 2.1 only for the consoles and to maybe future proof
