    Instead of throwing around insults, you'd be wise to read up on how heat affects the solder points long-term. Sure, it won't kill it instantly but it WILL degrade it and it WILL shorten the lifespan. Assuming perfect solder, running at 90*C for prolonged periods will result in an average life expectancy of around 3 years or so. If the solder from the factory has imperfections in it - it may be sooner.

    Warranty lasts 2~3 years, then by that 3rd year the hardware becomes out of warranty it also becomes obsolete. :(

    '4K' GS63VR models use PenTile (RG/BW) not-true-3840x2160 displays, regarded deceptive marketing on part of MSI. You deal with the tradeoffs (software scaling, need to run games in non-native res) without getting the full sharpness in exchange for it. I'd probably suggest a FHD IPS model GS63VR, or for better build quality a Clevo P950HP6 (watch out for the '4K' option on that too; if it's listed as Sharp IGZO it's the real deal, if it's listed as Samsung or LG it's PenTile / not the real deal).

    There's a version with a 120HZ FHD panel as well, that's probably what I'd go for.
