Should I wait for 4K monitor

I have a 27" 1080p Samsung monitor and I'm thinking about replacing it with ASUS PB278Q - a 27" PLS 2560x1440. But on the other hand there might be 4K monitors in the near future.
So, should I wait for 4k till it comes out? Or just buying a 2.5K monitor now?

Thanks

I would think that 4k will cost an absolute bomb mate. I'd just get the asus monitor for now

Yeah, you are right. Probably going to coast over $9000... How long do you think we'll have to wait until they become affordable? If it more than 2 years I'll just buy the ASUS one... Which is expensive anyway...

I've no idea mate. I'd definitely say long enough to warrant you getting the asus monitor now and waiting. Plus you'd need some pretty beast gpu's to crank up the settings on 4k i would think

If I get my hands on a 4K monitor I'll buy two GTX Titan and SLI them...

i don't think 4k will get popular this year, probably not even next year. i won't be using a resolution that high and therefor drop 3/4 of my framerate.

Yeah. Unless its crazy expensive, I'll just have to work overtime... And in my job it's fine. Because I build PCs for people, so I enjoy it...
