Wouldn't be a problem if Windows could handle high resolution displays

Windows does handle high resolution without issues, though?

It's okay. The scaling doesn't always work right. Certainly better than Windows 7/8.1. Those were just awful

Pretty cool but 27" is too small for 4K nevermind 5K.

4k on anything under 32* is just a waste for me. Its a bit like having 1440p at 24*. Just too small.

Agreed. I've got a 28" 4K monitor which I got dirt cheap, but it really is too small for such a high resolution without display scaling. Fine for games, but certainly not optimal for proper work.

It's not Windows you have to worry too much about. 8.1 and on scale very well. It's things like Photoshop and other thousand pound apps that don't scale at all. And thus you can't use them, as I found out with my 28" 4k display.

Got to admit it would be killer for gaming though, though 4k is about the limit on a Titan XP I reckon.

Yeah, it's the multitude of apps that I'd be more concerned about than Windows. Window scaling isn't great like NBD said, but smaller programs are much worse.

That's whats putting me off 4K for now, scaling just isn't were it needs to be at present.
