At a normal viewing distance of about 2-3 feet anything over 120PPI is going to require image scaling, which means all that extra screen real-estate is wasted, sure it looks sharper, but you're not really gaining much space because of the scaling you have to do in order to read anything.

36-46" 4k is the minimum to give you the same pixel density as a good quality 1440p 25-29" panel.

Yes but only up to a certain point, the reason it's more important on a cellphone or tablet is you hold them a LOT closer to your face, when you sit in front of a computer you SHOULD be about 2-3 feet back, at that distance anything over about 130PPI is going to be known as "retina", as in your eyes can't see the individual pixels.

So 4k at under 35" is just pretty dumb, 35" 4k is 125PPI which is already more dense than 1080p at anything over 18".

Ultrawide is a meme and sub 35" 4k is a meme.

1440p IPS or 1440p 144Hz is fine for now, but "upgrading" past 1440p without getting a REAL 4k at over 35" is just retarded.

There is no reason to hobble yourself with 4k on such a tiny screen, you're forcing yourself to do GUI scaling and all you're getting is a slightly sharper image out of it... wew fucking lad, what an upgrade.

holy fucking shit this

anyone who buys a 4k panel at under 35", just tell them to open up 4 1080p windows at once and see how usable it is, the WHOLE fucking point of higher resolution is to be able to fit more information on a single screen, with 4k panels under 30" in size opening up that many windows is unusable because you can't read shit. On a 40" however it's like having 4 1080p monitors in 1.

What content is mastered in 21:9?

Further, what can your 34" 21:9 3440x1440 do that a 40" 16:9 3840x2160 monitor couldnt?

It can display 21:9 content just fine if you want, 3440x1440 or 3840x1640.

You can always scale down with larger res, you can't scale up.

any 4k content, pretty much any big AAA movie going forward from this point will release in 4k.

Also, with a 40" 4k you have identical pixel density to 34" 1440p ultrawide.

Meaning you can just run the 4k at 3440x1440p and it will be identical size and density as your ultrawide, just instead of a bezel you will have black bars and then the bezel.

IDK about you, but I can deal with having black bars.

Forgive me. But let me ask a stupid question. You guys talk a lot about computer hardware components, and how much better a newly released consumer GPU is compared to a year-old one. But you rarely talk about just exactly what component is responsible for the operations of specific activities on the computer. For example; what hardware component(s) are primarily responsible for ensuring the fastest OS startup from boot? The main hardware components are the CPU, GPU, RAM, and HD or SSD, yes? Well, what is responsible for what exactly? Is there a hard and fast rule? Can I request a nice neat breakdown of what component is responsible for specific tasks on a computer?

Can I get a breakdown something like this:
>move/copy files (HD/SSD 90%, RAM 10%, GPU 0%, CPU 0%)

>render large media files
>play super HQ video files
>record lossless screencasts without suffering frame skips
>software open/close
>computer boot/shutdown/sleep

People speak vaguely about what each component does. Like, someone will describe the CPU by saying it's the 'brain of the computer, responsible for abstract math processing'. But what the fuck does that mean in reality? Is a fast CPU crucial for rendering super HQ video, as number-crunching is important for displaying graphics? What computer task heavily relies on a good CPU? Can you get away with having a shit CPU but max out the other components? I just want to deconstruct this ambiguity and understand it better. Because currently, it just seems best to pool money into getting the best of each component because who can tell really what performance you're going to get from your computer if you got second-rate RAM.

Not everyone on here is doing nothing but playing games. If you want high clock speeds, you buy a processor binned for it and validated. You have no guarantee of a stable overclock and it's difficult to test as thoroughly as Intel or AMD can and do.

Youre completely fucking retarded if you actually think that there a risk to overclocking hardware. Hell, all the K processors are unlocked so people can buy custom coolers and OC them by at least 20% without ever even being forced to touch the voltage. There only starts to be risk as soon as you up voltages and OC a 3.5 base to something like 4.5+ with heatsink and fan instead of AiO. Hundreds if not thousands of people are running their CPU at higher clock. Are they not eligible for testing stuff or do you claim that all of them are just lucky? Unless you plan to use your hardware for 10 years there isnt a single reason to not OC shit.

Again, unless you pass a certain threshold there will never be stability issues. You can clock a fucking 6600k from 3.5 to 4.3 without touching the voltage and there will never be stability issues. I did it myself. Same with the 6700k that you can up from 4 to 4.6 without touching anything but the multiplier. Stability issues are only caused if the temp or voltage of the CPU are off, which wont be the case unless you run a fucking stock cooler. Custom fans and AiO system keep the CPU cool at all time so stability issues will never be a problem.

Hell, EVEN IF you run into stability issues you can just reset the CMOS and tune down the clock if you are too afraid of touching the voltage. You PC doesnt fucking blow up if you ended up OCing it too much. Thats not how fucking hardware works. Degradation only happens if you mistreat your hardware for a long duration, like run a Skylake CPU at avg 1.35V for a year or something. You processor doesnt lose half of its life span because it can at a higher clock for half an hour. Jesus fucking Christ.

I wouldnt say that people who are uninformed or tech illiterates are stupid per se. How many people really build their own PC? How many actually care? Modern society got used to replacing completely functional hardware for new hardware that doesnt even provide heavily improved performance. You have people who buy a new phone every year. The same people probably do the same with laptops and hardly any of them buy hardware that CAN be overclocked.

Look at the specifications of this or you average prebuild
http://www.apple.com/de/imac/specs/

They dont even tell you what type of processor it is. No way in hell is that an unlocked one, so for most people its not even an option to overclock because their hardware doesnt allow it. Not even the $900 prebuilds on Newegg use unlocked CPUs. This group probably makes up for 90% of all consumers. Then you have 10% who build their own computer (probably only half that if not even less). Most of them are either too lazy to do research on simple shit like hardware or too scared of overclocking to actually do it (see blackscreen example, they just stop as soon as their PC crashed once and are happy about shit still booting). This group probably makes up for 9% of the people who build their own computer.

Then you have the 1% of PC users that actually OCs and builds a PC with OCing in mind. Its a fraction of the market, the fraction that keeps this whole 'muh gaymer' hardware market alive because they are the only ones who even have use for GAMING LABELED MAINBOARD and shit, because only they actually make use of the OCing features etc. The people who are actively endangering their hardware are the 0.1%. These people are specifically buying hardware for benchmarks. They buy entire AiO system just to get a 6600k from 3.5 to 4.9Ghz and knowingly blow up their shit because they planned on replacing their stuff within 12 months anyway. They are the only ones who push the hardware to its limit, no one else really does.
