So all I got is a 1920x1080 monitor, by the way is it a coincidence that that resolution is 1080P capable and it's x1080 or is that what it means to be 1080P? I thought I knew the answer, at any rate it's a Hanns-g H-201 I picked up in Goodwill for around $15 and it works lol, so anyway I see that some gaming monitors are native 1920x1080 but some games can go way higher than that, so what's the advantage of going much higher and does it affect performance on a low end PC? My guess unless it's a high end graphics gpu with at least 1 GB of memory unlike the 512mb I have, than it's really pointless, but I guess for those who have high end PCs that higher resolution makes sense.

A. 1080p and the x1080 DO corrrespon

B. Yes, because there are more pixels to render, low end PCs will have more problems using a 4k monitor per se.

I had a feeling that was the case with the 1080P wasn't sure and it makes sense about the 4k threshold, I would never dream of trying to run a monitor like that with what I have at present it would make me pull my hair out! angry

I run 1920x 1200 on my desktop 30" display; I have a Surface Pro 4 that I take on the road with me that runs 2736 x 1824, 12" display. I have to say If i could afford a 32" monitor with 3840 x 2160 @ 60Hz Id do it in a hear beat...
