Well.. I got KDE working.
However it looks unsharp. Don't have any screenshot software installed but
- Firstoff, the bottom bar looks too white
- Second, everything looks streched in a way.. Like, stretched up/down, making it look pretty unsharp.
Maybe it's my screen resolution.. How do I change this?

Trying to emerge kcontrol...
Doing sudo emerge kcontrol emerges kcontrol, but when I run kcontrol it says commad not ound.
If I try to emerge it again it just does the same thing again.. Doesn't say it's already installed.
What is going on here?
EDIT: su'ing and then emerging it gives the same result.

EDIT2: xrandr says my current resolution is 1024 x 768, while I think the resolution I SHOULD have is 1920 x 1080
How do I change this? I also noticed that there is no /etc/X11/xorg-conf.d directory.

EDIT3: Tried doing what's in this thread (https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-920714-view-previous.html?sid=852cd6c263b7c2fd95523355e20af24a) (but then with 1920x1080) but it tells me "xrandr: Configure crtc 0 failed"

Fixed it! Had to emerge nvidia-settings then run nvidia-xconfig as root.
