I'm returning a Asus PA328 since this monitor isn't compatible with my 5,1/12 core 3.3/980ti Mac at full 4K/60.
I've read tons and now considering these:

1) Dell P2715Q
2) Dell UP3216Q

3) LG 31MU97-B

Anyone have experience with any of these? Any experience with these and a 5,1/980ti?

I use for a year the #1 you mention. Great monitor with good expandability and connections. Haven't seen the LG one. So I can't compare.

Same here, been using the Dell P2715Q for little over a year now, couldn't be more satisfied with this display and would recommend it to anyone with a 4K 60Hz capable machine.

I went with the Dell UP3216Q

Just got it
Videos look stunning at 4k/60hz

Thanks everyone for the votes for Dell. Buying a proven system is smart.

Heads up about this monitor: when i first installed it my bluetooth Apple mouse disconnected whenever the Dell was turned on. Not the mouse batteries. SUPER WEIRD. Did it many times in a row. Turned out the problem was my third party Display to MiniDisplay cable (that was supposed to be 1.2). When I used the cable that came with the Dell everything worked great.

I went with Asus PB279Q

Great 4K monitor, supports SST (= no issues with Mac's), HDR 10 Bit Color, and has internal speakers.

Two DisplayPort 1.2 connections, 4 HDMI 1.4 connections.

Lack's only an USB Hub.

The cable probably had defective shielding and your low power bluetooth link was getting jammed buy the RF noise.
