Started planning a new PC, but I am afraid that I am getting distracted by the thought of getting a new 4k monitor. I saw one the other day. It was ridiculously expensive, but I looked around and I could get a 28 inch display for around six hundred dollars. That has a resolution of 3840 x 2160, which means that it has four times as many pixels as a 1080p monitor like the one that I have now. There are a lot of problems with it, for instance high speed internet providers with gigabit type internet service would be needed for you to get a full benefit from the resolution. When you think about it that is what you need for you to be able to get a good video connection with that resolution. It is probably going to need about sixteen megabytes per second, more or less for you to get a Netflix type stream at a 4k resolution.
Time Warner claims that they give me up to 5 mbs I think, but it is probably not that much on a steady basis. If you run a test they might say you get more or less than that, but it is not going to be a steady stream. If you did get that much, it would not count at the peak use times. I guess that is like prime time for the most part, with internet use peaking around 9 PM at the night. At that point the whole neighborhood is probably trying to stream a movie on the Netflix, with all of the kids still awake. What you get is going to be half or less at that point in the night. You can be sure that the use is going to keep going up for the foreseeable future.
