                      I am just trying to shoot for 1440p on my computer so I can watch all the 4K videos I have downloaded at better quality I am not even sure my computer could be do full 4k. I using a 39.5" 720p Insignia as monitor I am looking to upgrade to a 43" 4K Samsung or LG TV soon. 8K overkill and for the next 5 to 7 years it will be. Only like 10% of computer users have a 4K setup and only like 40% to 50% of home theater setups have a 4K display. What they did not tell you is this 8K 65" cost like $10k to $15k.

                              I was impressed even watching this in 1080p.... If it looks like 8k on 1080 I really need my eyes testing...

                                Cool. Now all my 1440p if I'm lucky "4K games" on consoles and "4K movies" on bluray or streaming services can be even further under resolution!

                                                I can't tell the difference between 4K, 1080p, 720p. So it doesn't matter to me.
