Whenever I see the words "4K monitor," the first thing that usually jumps into my easily distracted noggin is "games!" Or, more specifically, "Wow! I can't wait to see what games look like running at a 4K (4,096x3,072-pixel) resolution!" Or something to that effect.

The second thing that pops into my head is "how much?!" Unfortunately, ViewSonic has not yet named a price for its new 32-inch 4K VP3280 monitor. As for games, well, that will depend on how capable your video card is and the willingness of game developers to support such a ridiculously awesome resolution.

This is really all the info we have so far, but we'll be sure to get some hands-on time with the device in Vegas next week and bring you as much info as we can on this and many other products making their CES 2013 debut.
