    Hello I have a Pc with
    INTEL I7
    16 DDR3
    750w PSU
    ASUS ROG STRIX GPU

    I just bought a TCL 4k TV with immense graphics.

    Overall the TV quality is perfect.
    THe only pronlem I have is slight lag in writing this post and the cursor of my mouse is also lag.

    So what must I do in order to gain speed performance?
    Do I need a higher powere graphics card?
    maybe a 1080?

    Any answers would be brilliant.,

    I'm wondering if the lag is in the TV itself. Have you tried running the computer with other monitors?

    Hello yes I have run this pc on 32 inch and 40 inch HD tvs.
    But on the TCL 43 inch 4K the cursor lags a little and the typing is a little slow also.
    Any thoughts? Would it be the mouse DPI? I have a gigabyte mouse ghost I think it is 6000 DPI.

    My mouse allows me to change the dpi.
    If I bring the DPI down the cursor goes real slow but if I hit the button and make four lights shine, the cursor moves faster.
    Do you think the mouse and key board need to be upgraded?
    From what I can tell the only things that do lag are the cursor and keyboard elements.

    Upon close observation, even the speech of people in movies is slightly out, less than a poorly dubbed japanese movie but it is out. Changing windows or opening task bar it a little slow.

    Would it be a graphics card issue?
    Thank you

    I set the resolution below 4K res now the entire pc is responsive, no lag.
    Would the 1050ti be underpowered?

    Thanks

    Tony asked you...
    You answered...
    A tv is NOT a monitor.
    They don't respond in the same way.
    You would do well to read this....
    Why is a monitor better than a TV for computers

    Hi Pete.
    What sort of DVI cable did you use, to set the refresh rate set to 120 MHz.?
    A normal DVI cable won't allow you to do that.

    Hello I am using a monster DVI. Nvidia actually let me set the refresh rate to 240hz

    so its actually running reasonably well now.

    The Tv has an option to set the content to pc. I just installed a 1080 removing the ASUS 1050 Ti now there is no lag what so ever and I am able to type perfectly fast. THe tv set itself from 30hz to 60hz and I was able to create the illusion from nvidia c panel to 240 hz so right now it is functioning as a monitor should function.
