    So I just bought a MAXED 2015 iMac 5K and I am wondering what two external displays I should get?

    From what I understand the new iMac can't drive two 4K monitors with the 5K display running and it can only drive two 2560x1440 screens. Is it pointless to get two 4K monitors then? I am just trying to figure out what to do. I am debating on a IPS display VS 4K. I am leaning towards the dell Dell UltraSharp U2715H 27-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor or the Dell Ultra HD 4k Monitor P2715Q 27-Inch Screen.

    I just bought the same full loaded 5K and after looking at all the reviews and youtube went with the Dell P2715Q

    If I am not mistaken the 5K iMac can only drive two 4K displays at 30HZ or 1 4K @30 HZ and One IPS. If you only need one monitor then this won't be a issue for you but I need two
