Description

Up until a few weeks ago I had two different PCs: one Intel/Nvidia build connected to a 35" Ultrawide QHD G-Sync monitor, one all-AMD build connected to a 27" IPS Freesync panel. Long story short--after selling off a bunch of stuff, consolidating parts, and buying a new 55" OLED I am left with this setup and I'm really loving it. Of note, I typically game with a gamepad so I am NOT sitting that close to the TV, so don't worry about my cervical spine. It's fine!

Anyway, I don't have a lot to say about this "new" build except I can't imagine a better way to game at the start of 2020. The OLED is stunning and g-sync works beautifully. Although the TV can do either 4K/60fps or 2K/120fps, I prefer that latter. My eyes find that the increased frames are much more noticeable than the resolution bump. Well, back to gaming...

That OLED Is stunning, I'm curious are there any anti-burn in features on that set? I know OLEDs are succeptible to burn in from static images like static HUDs in games.

There are some screen shift and pixel refresher settings that should help but the real key to avoiding burn-in on an OLED is to be smart about varying your content and don't walk away from the screen (paused movies and games) for long periods. This is my third OLED and I've never had burn-in issues, but this is my first time using one mainly for PC gaming so I'm just extra careful about using my screen saver and not allowing my desktop icons to be on-screen for long periods. I don't play the same games over and over so I'm not too concerned about burn-in but for folks who just play the same one or two games over and over again this probably wouldn't be the best option.

It's a nice PC. Altough I don't see the point of using an OLED screen for your games and work. Also it would be nice to upgrade the CPU to a Ryzen 5 3600x or Ryzen 7 3700x, any 3rd gen, it will be faster and useful since you have a powerful GPU.

The 1600x is overclocked a bit and doing fine. And believe me--OLEDs are absolutely exquisite for games and movies. I don't use it for work, so...
