    Can gaming at 8K really be easy in 2019? Sharp thinks so, and they sent over a demo unit to show us just how easy it is. But they didn't account for one thing... the Linus factor.

              If I buy a prebuilt pc with GTX 1060 and i7-7700 could i upgrade the graphics card to an Asus Phoenix RTX 2060 Geforce RTX 2060 6GB Pci-E W/ DVI, Dual HDMI, Displayport then after a few months upgrade it to a Intel Core i9 9900K 3.6 GHz Tray Processor

                  I thought SLI crashed games on windows 10 when crossfire? I do know a lot of players using SLI have to remove one of their graphics cards on windows 10 before they can play a game.

                          After half the video I turned off, because your presentation just made me stress. Unfortunately your voice, your movement and all the running and jumping are completely hopeless to watch.

                                  It is impossible for the human eye to see in 4K. Therefore you cant see in 8k. ~Google it~

                                        Having finally got it working at 8k and then found the frame rates lacking, I would have tried running the games at 6k instead, if that's possible: See how the lower res (and any artefacts from showing 6k output on an 8 display) trade off against getting better framerates: Is it still significantly better experience, that way, than direct 4k gaming on a 4k display? 'Cos if it is, then it might make sense to buy the 8k display, run it at 6k for the time being, and save up for a *truly* 8k-capable graphics card/machine at a later point.

                                        (Says the guy who still runs his 4k monitor at 1920x2080 'cos he *still* can't afford that amazing super-new 1060ti graphics card! =:o} (Or the laser eye surgery to make it worth having the higher resolution anyway... =:o\ ) )
