With monitors being more apparent more than ever, the luxury for that multiple monitor setup seems to be on the rise as well – thanks to monitors being cheaper by the year. But one downfall in having multiple monitors is the bezel or the in-between bars thanks to the existence of borders. If this type of setup irritates you more than your partner scolding at you for not throwing the trash, perhaps a single wide monitor setup might be the only thing that you need. Yes, say goodbye to borders and multiple 1080p monitors and say hello to Single 4K Monitor Setup.
Two years ago, 4K is a luxury and it’s another level of ultra-high resolution that graphics card of tomorrow just simply can’t keep up with. Fast forward to today and you can see them everywhere in which even an entry-level graphics card of today can easily power up the beast, just don’t expect to game at 4K. For theisal, the creator of Single 4K Monitor Setup, having a single 4K monitor is far more productive wherein it offers “more usable space” especially in his game development activities.
But of course, that’ll require power. Let’s take a look at what’s inside. The whole setup is being powered by an Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor paired with Asus GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB Turbo Video Card – both being capable of daily work productivity tasks with medium gaming in tow as well as graphics rendering. Inside the compact yet attention-grabbing LED clad Fractal Design Arc Mini R2 MicroATX Mini Tower Case, houses the speedy and relatively large Samsung – 850 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5″ Solid State Drive along with Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Memory. And for the monitor, you’re given pleasure with the Acer Predator XB281HK 28 inch Gaming Monitor – made for gamers but also for game developers, taking advantage of the quick 1ms response time.
