                  $4,500 for Oled, thanks but I’ll pass with LG’s C9 55” or LG E8 of I can find one 55”-65” and even at $1,500-$2,000. Can also get 120hrz at 2k resolution which is fine with no motion lag and 12ms response time. Seen it run Doom, if it runs Doom smooth then bring on everything else! Waiting to play Division 2 and Cyberpunk 2077 when that comes out, vacation time!!!!

                                      @Aryan Ramanand Wouldn't mind a Radeon 5700 and 5700XT option as well. They're cheaper than the 2060 and 2070 but more powerful.

                                    This new thing is pretty cool, but way too expensive and worthless. You can get the same spec on their site for 1000$ less with the old aurora.

                                                  I'm still waiting for them to make an "Alienware" version of the XPS 15, directly competing with Razer

                                                    @Matt K. But you said you wanted Alienware version. That is what Alienware is...big and gamer. What I think you probably want is an XPS gaming machine like the old XPS M1710 or XPS M1730, but to modern standards.

                                                    @Matt K. Actually yes, there's no reason for an "Alienware version of the XPS 15" to exist, the M15 / M17 are competitors to the Aero 15, Razer Blade 15, MSI GS65, etc.

                                                    Ice Lake isn't coming to desktops anytime soon. The ones that Intel is about to release are for tablets and ultrabooks. In fact we might not see an Ice Lake CPU come out on desktop at all. The 10th gen for desktops will probably just be a rehashed 14nm coffee lake CPU with 3% improvements.

                                                        I've never been more sad to put money back in my pocket in my life. A premium 4K monitor in 2019 without HDR + no HDR & HDMI 2.1 when the TVs the panel closely derives from has both for 2.6 times cheaper (LG's OLED C9 TV)? This is DOA.

                                                        They even laughably added FreeSync instead of FreeSync 2 & G-Sync when an overwhelmingly amount of 4K enthusiasts/gamers use Nvidia GPUs (RTX w/ NVLINK the best means of leveraging this monitor's capabilities today). This monitor can't even connect to their flagship laptops which it easily should have w/ Thunderbolt 3

                                                        The CES prototype had HDMI 2.1 & HDR, so the management + research team behind the downgrade dropped the ball. They would've been better off delaying till next year and replacing the USB ports to Thunderbolt 3 via USB4.

                                                        People buy monitors for 4+ years; all the core I/O & characteristics of this device is obsolete after this year with the decisions they've made besides its response time & 4K@120hz (all innate things the panel was capabile of anyway). . People can't even maximize current gen consoles; next gen consoles will use HDMI 2.1 & Dolby Vision HDR unapologetically just like the Xbox One X.

                                                        I have the previous AW 34 inch ultrawide, used with a 2080ti it is pretty sweet. Might get the 27 inch for the second PC (mainly used for VR) and swap out the 1070 for a 2080 as I would like to try 240Hz and I am not convinced that you can tell the difference between that and 120Hz.

                                                              Its overkill today, for its price, for a casual gamer. The casual gamer with a budget is now better off with a console (as usual) or buying a moderate gaming laptop that they will also use for other utility. If you're anywhere hardcore, sure a desktop gaming PC is still perfectly appropriate, but its finally no longer the only option. If this was the early 2010s then it'd be a different matter. Most gamers can't and won't learn and take the effort to upgrade parts on a PC - full stop. The complainers here are a niche in a niche.

Semi-glossy filter is not too bad, since it's somewhat half-way in between full mirror-like glossy and full matte.
                                                                  The thing is, you'd still have to control your ambient light and that's the key in having a great display experience.

                                                                  @GAMEISTIC There's plenty of videos on the web comparing matte vs glossy displays, but I can't find one right now that shows adequately the differences in image quality.
                                                                  Bottom line is that matte screens have a fuzzy-appearing filter placed in front of them and that makes colors more faded, it reduces contrast and color saturation and makes the image more hazy and sparkly, depending on how 'aggressive' the filter is made, i.e. how much it is intended to reduce reflections in high ambient light situations.
                                                                  Fact is, matte screens have their uses in office work and high ambient light situations but, if you care about image quality, you should control your environment's light level and go with a glossy screen.
                                                                  Trouble is that manufacturers have stopped offerring glossy options almost completely and now put anti-glare filters on almost all TV's and monitors...
