    Not to forget that if you use a 28inch screen it makes it even more useless. You sit really close to it. If you sit like 20meters away from your screen it might look amazing, but it won't really make that much of a difference between 1080p and 4k when you're not even 1-2meters away. People should quit following the logic: "If it has a higher number it's bound to be much better and I should get it!"
    This isn't always true. Right off the bat you can tell a big difference between gaming on 1080P vs 1440. More real estate, much clearer image and it's not stretched out. Honestly 4k at 28" is over kill but worth it in my opinion.

    Future-proof would be around 3 to 4 years with most top of the line single GPU. Since the 295 x2 is CF on a stick it probably won't do good over 3 years if the game doesn't support CF properly.

    That's because 1440p stretches out the image more in the width, while 1080p does it more in the height. 1080p and 4k basicly stretches out in the same way, which means that the difference is non-existent at close range.

    That.. would be a big reason why I would be against this now that you mention it...
