In order to help/understand you better, are you planning to have the PC more as a media device to run movies to the AX800 or are you mainly wanting the PC connected to the TV for gaming?
For gaming, depending on the game, you would run the game at 3840x2160 and then use a program like FRAPS to monitor your frame rate. Some people don't mind gaming at 4k and 30fps, others are more sensitive to wanting the higher frame rate. I guess you need to answer the following:
1. What res do you ultimately want to play your games at?
2. What is an acceptable frame rate for your gaming? Is it 30 or 60fps?
3. Are you also want to stream movies and other video media to the set from the PC?
You're right "artifacts" wasn't the right word.
I was referring to what was described as "black frame all the way around the image"
Thank you for your specific questions Hawkmoon!
My intention is to use this display exclusively as a PC monitor. So the source will be PC only.
So first use - for regular computing - programming mostly. Idea is to split it up into 4 logical monitors.
Using a tool like this
one. Here's someone blogging
about it using a different display.
The second use would be to watch movies. 720p and 1080p for the most part. Some UHD streamed from netflix.
The third use would be for gaming.
To answer your question about FPS. I've no idea what is an acceptable rate for gaming for me. I would need some advice on this one. To give you a background - last time I played a PC game was around 9 years ago so I really don't remember.
To be honest I don't plan to be gaming much it's just this one game I want to have a go at which is the latest version of Civilization - that game being turn based I imagine would run ok-ish on 30fps ??? or not?
Since I have this cpu/gpu limitation** my understanding is that I would have a choice to switch between 2 modes (hopefully with some easy presets).
Mode 1: 30fps on UHD
Mode 2: 60fps on 3440x1440
My questions related to the use modes.
1) Programming/Browsing net. Would it be ok experience with Mode 1 or I would have to switch to Mode 2 to get rid of any potential mouse lag and pay the price of seeing those black boundries around the screen?
2) Movies. I guess I would be ok to watch all the content in Mode 1 here except maybe for sports where I would have to go to Mode 2
3) Civ. No idea what the experience would be with 30fps. How bad does it actually is in the Mode 2. I understand you loose some real estate but apart from that does it look really annoying?
