Nice!!

I think my favorite part is that you didn't even bother taking the plastic off the border of the screen because you were so excited to plug it in and fire up the sim! :lol:

I tried a 4k monitor ASUS PB279Q 27" 4K UHD with a 980gtx card but the fonts were really hard to get super clear! it s always a little fuzzy, and I'm super particular about that. Changing the res only made the very very small .. Your solution may be much better,,,,, Looks great. How is that screen for general computer stuff or do you only use it for the sim

After the tweaking, all fonts and text are smooth and clear. I do use it for normal computer use. The one thing I have found to be an issue is I cant stream on twitch.tv while using that TV, too high of resolution and when I turn the res down to 1920x1080, this screen does become blurry and the textures in the sim lose most of their quality. So if I am going to do a video or stream, I have to revert back to my 25 inch monitor. One day twitch and OBS will play friendly at higher resolutions but for now no go.

Are you down-scaling before broadcasting? For example I play at 1080p but have OBS down-scale to 720p for Twitch. What you see and what you stream can be different resolutions. You may already know that, just pointing it out in case you didn't.
