I've been using a Phillips 17" CRT since forever. I've ran it with an HD 4870, even after the graphics card died (I'm too lazy to bake it), I'm now running it on integrated Intel HD 4000.
I'm awaiting Nvidia's Pascal line up and I will be buying the successor to the 980 Ti, since I have the money to spend, I am also looking to buy a new monitor. Yes, my CRT has helped me with my graphic design and etc, but It hurts me to accept that I need to move on.
I'm thinking of going for a ASUS ROG SWIFT 27" 2560x1440 monitor. But at the same time I feel like I would get more from buying a 4K monitor. But my budget for the monitor is limited to 700 euros which the ROG Swift 27" is.
I play CSGO casually, I play Dota, and looking forward to playing Star Citizen.
Could someone advise me on which monitor would be total bang for my buck?

So, I fucked up by installing the fake app that's there on the google web store.
Long story short, I was setting up my grandma's laptop, and because her laptop was hooked up to the tv, I couldn't read shit.
Beside Chrome being a botnet, does anyone know what this shit does?

Other business laptops are also welcome in /tpg/ (e.g. Dell Latitude/Precision, HP EliteBook/ZBook).
If you're looking for purchase advice, READ THE BUYERS GUIDE FIRST. Then post, stating budget and requirements (e.g. size and performance).
Don't buy anything OTHER THAN T, X AND W/P SERIES if you want the Real ThinkPad Experience™

X220 - 12.5", lightweight
Why ThinkPad? (also applies to other business laptops)
>They’re really cheap when you buy a used one.
>Keyboards feel excellent while typing (yes, even the newer ones).
>Great durability thanks to the inclusion of rollcages and use of glass fiber reinforced plastic for the chassis. The keyboard is splash proof and spilled liquids will drain out.
>Utilitarian design - e.g. indicator LEDs, 7 row keyboard layout on older models.
>Docking solutions that easily turns your laptop into a desktop.
>Easy to repair, upgrade and maintain thanks to readily available service manuals for almost every model. Spare parts are easy and cheap to obtain.
>The best trackpoint (that red thing on the middle of the keyboard). Great for those who type a lot or hate swiping their fingers all over a touchpad.
>Excellent GNU/Linux & *BSD support.
