Srsly. I use all the space on my current 1600p screen so more space really would be nice.
1440p is nice for documents, cannot imagine 1600p... Really want a new monitor now >.>

4k is one of the very few "just because it's more doesn't mean it's better" parts of technology especially when you take a HUGE performance hit along with it.
EDIT: Got the D5 for my cnc water cooling project that I'm hopefully starting soon and I'm starting to realize how over kill it is even though the cpu design is pretty restrictive. if any one with a reference 7970 block could dimension the face of it and the heights of everything you'd get a free virtual pat on the back.
TV is not totally pointless. Like all developing technologies, 4k is a pretty big tradeoff for everyone. You can expect cinematographers to eventually shoot in 8k for 4k masters, oh the hardware... Its really taxing for everyone involved. Maybe in this point in time it is useless, but that's what people wanted you to think about 1080p
4K ultimately hurts the margins of developers of 4k content and hardware, especially during introduction. Useless for them, but not for us consumers. You're on head-fi, you should know better lol
