Well that concludes we have to put this screen on a local marketplace.
I like the U2515H too. Although it isn't 4K it has almost no chassis coverage to the frontside of the screen. They are cheap and ok. But HDPI is also a feature I don't want to miss. What to buy as an alternative for the Dell P2715Q?

I ended up replacing my P2715Q with a 32" 4K monitor because I wanted to use 4K at native resolution.

This morning, I decided to mess around with the VGTab utility to see how far I can lower the fan speeds on my Vega while still keeping the card under 80C under load. I ran the usual benchmarks to monitor temps but noticed that, no matter what I did, FPS seemed to be capped at 60fps! Well, after many, many restarts and tests, it turned out that having Safari open somehow prevented Unigine Heaven and Valley to go beyond 60fps... :banghead:

Which one? I have the BenQ PD3200U and the LG 32UD59-B. I prefer the LG. The BenQ "Blinks" every few minutes and I will eventually return it. I love it otherwise

Im using an AOC U3277PWQU. When I bought it, there were very few choices of 32" 4K monitors. I'm sure the newer ones available now are better. That being said, this monitor has given me approx 2 years of trouble-free service and I've been very happy with it.

I use it with a Dell MKS14 monitor stand. The monitor stand uses a modified/proprietary VESA mount and it was a bit of a pain to get to mount this monitor to it, but I got it done and it's also been great.

As you can see from the second picture of post #1, I really don't have any more room on the desk for a second monitor.

No. I don't have enough space on my desk for two monitor. Even my current 32" is really pushing it.
You got plenty of room you are just not maximizing the volume... Get a Monitor Mount and Stack it on top of the other one. I got this Sound Engineer client where we stacked monitors so that the sound is always even to the ears but he can still have the second monitor for sliders and such. Also you could always find a new home for that printer like on a small cart under your desk.

Lol. Then I would need to find a place to put my legs. :lol: I already have my USP under my desk...

I tried using two monitors many, many years ago and hated it. I much prefer a single large monitor. No head turning, just movement of eyeballs for me.

I design homes so when I get corrections from the city or who ever, it is nice to have the correction sheets open on one monitor and then my drafting/modeling software open on the other instead of having to tab back and forth. Also when I was in school it was nice to have the book/web pages on one screen while adding research into word or what ever. it is also really nice for comparing stuff. I have two 27inch 4k monitors, I would love a monitor that did 7680 x 2160 So I guess that would be like a 4k ultra wide.
