Scorpio is shaping up to be a "BEAST"! Well worth my wait. The only limitation seems to be only the display panel itself...or the game. On that score, I will be linking my directly into my big...

Either one of these two monitors will fit the bill nicely (@ 4ms each). But IMO they are way over priced for the resolution delivered. Now if either had HDR capability at those resolutions & lag...
