Update for you: I got two keyboards (Razer green switches and Cherry MX browns) PLUS a 1080p60hz IPS monitor for $15!!! I have to clean out gamer scum from the keyboards but very very good deal for me.

Here's my updated list: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/gnulynnux/saved/B98dmG

I'll probably pick up a better monitor Eventually, it's one of those things I'm def willing to wait for a deal on. Tbh I'm pretty happy to have a tenkey, I can get back into Blender now 8)

God I'd never want 8K

1080p is plenty for me but 1440p sounds.... Nice

Oh shit that's exactly what I was thinking of!!

I remember in like... 2010 my internet friends were building gaming PCs and I was like "hey it'd be cool if there was an extra 'brightness' channel per pixel or something like that" and they were like "that's stupid and impossible"

YEAH

WHO'S STUPID AND IMPOSSIBLE NOW, 2010 HIGHSCHOOL KIDS???

Oh I'm confused -- I always understood HDR to be some post processing to bring a wide range of light values to the 0-255 scale we all know. But from what I read now, HDR monitors just have great contrast ratios and 30 bit color?

Anyways, I still feel iffy about TN. I love the viewing angles I'm familiar with for IPS.

Blugh, my ideal monitor is <27 inches, 1440p (or 1080p at most), IPS or similar tech, 144Hz with reasonable refresh rate.

I reaaally wanna avoid TN but it seems that's my only choice for this kinda panel...

I'm doing ML so I'm justifying the beefy GPU that way ;) Buuuut I've gotten this critique twice, so i think i ought just to get a better monitor. Plus I'll be typing on that a lot
