With this outrageous $3,500 flat screen, Asus is giving us our first taste of 4K resolutions. It might just be the next big thing in PC graphics. Can it possible live up to the hype?

Been looking for a reason to upgrade to a large screen monitor? You might finally have one, provided you're willing to drop three and a half large on a display. Starting today, you can pre-order the Asus PQ321Q, a 31.5-inch 4K ultra-high definition display with a 3840x2160 screen resolution, versus the 2560x1600 resolution found on most 30-inch monitors. That equates to four times the resolution of a Full HD 1080p display.
