More and more it's becoming clear that gaming monitors are going to have to either become more fairly priced or just disappear. TVs have (or will have) all the features but are larger, look better, and cost less.

i'm going to have to stick with 1440p unfortunately, this plus a 3080 is what like 1500$ together?
Yeah Best Buy can do up to 5 years and its not a huge price jump from say 3 or 4 years. so if your worried about burn in that might be a good option for you, it would not cover accidental but the only way your going to physicaly damage it is a VR related incident involving alcohol or mushrooms

OLED vs monitor?
You do not use OLED as a monitor.

Bought it now, thinking later...

I was looking at this https://www.benq.com/en-ca/monitor/desi ... 3200u.html monitor. I am strictly looking to video edit, and all the additional gaming-targeted features on this monitor have to be accounted in the price somehow.

I'm new to this, so perhaps I am not interpreting this report adequately; but it seems like this model has quite a bit of drawbacks for my specific purpose. Perhaps I am better off with something like the BenQ PD3200U

You could use a real 10-bit panel which will bump the presentation by miles on the book.

"In more technical terms, an 8-bit file works with RGB using 256 levels per channel, while 10-bit jumps up to 1,024 levels per channel. This means a 10-bit image can display up to 1.07 billion colors, while an 8-bit photo can only display 16.7 million."

Yes, I must've missed that. I was trying to find whether it was 8 or 10 bit and couldn't... was probably right in front of my face. 10 bit is definitely paramount for me.
