  1. like spook said, most modern gpu cards will have 1-3 DP ports and they aren't the bottleneck; what that's talking about is connecting multiple displays through 1 DP 2.0 cable (which is useful for laptops and other physically limited devices which isn't your case ) you're not going to be running 3 4K monitors at 90hz for gaming anyhow; but whatever your use case you just need to make sure your cables are capable of the resolution and refresh rate you want and the according monitors and your GPU will display accordingly
  2. i like value too; but with UW are inherently more expensive than typically 16:9 monitor which is why the good ones are on the higher end; i've been there with "value" UW and high refresh rate monitors, if given the choice, for $400 i would rather get a good 16:9 monitor than a "value" UW and conversely "value" 4K/HDR and a quality UW i'm not going to say money isn't a concern but i'm financially better off than i was before and want something better for my new 118in x 29.5in desk (two big chunks of wood from ikea and the frame of my old desk and other parts did the trick, never had a custom desk before) also im not interested in 4K period, maybe like 3-5 years down the line when GPU speeds are on par with the demand for higher resolutions; UW enhances my gaming experience and increases my FoV without the comprise and expense of a 4K monitor and lack of increased FoV; for 65in+ displays, aka TV, 4K makes a much more noticeable difference since at that size pixels are spread thin on a typically 1080p tv compared to a 4k tv, but again, suffer from high response times, terrible for gaming the 38" isn't out yet, but its on my watchlist if i don't pull the trigger on the 34"
  3. sadly that won't be for a while but i think you can do what you want with DP 1.4 which supports 4K 144hz not sure what you mean about 3 90hz monitors though https://www.displayport.org/pr/vesa-publishes-displayport-2-0-video-standard-enabling-support-for-beyond-8k-resolutions-higher-refresh-rates-for-4k-hdr-and-virtual-reality-applications/
  4. you're outright ignoring the whole point of an UW, the greater field of view while having the low latency of a regular monitor why would i waste money on a display that'll be half its price by the time 4k 144hz is usable anyway so that dumb, short of videos and movies, i would like everything to be at native resolution, 2K/UW 2K resolution hits that sweet spot perfectly between high res, PPI, and no where near as demanding as 4k and thus no need to upscale HDR can go in the bin; good HDR monitors typically have higher response times and input lag, making them not ideal for FPS games or anything fast and competitive; both LG monitors have the bare minimum in that reguard anyhow if you don't have any worthwhile recommendations why respond?
  5. i've tried those plenty $400-600 UW, they suffer from high input lag (among multiple defective units, thankfully the returns for those went smooth), noticeable ghosting and a myriad of other issues of other issues that these higher end UW monitors don't suffer from; for instance the 34in monitor i mention got a firmware update that drastically improved its response time and increased its freesync range, making it much more inline with its price tag of $800 right now im in the USA so location isn't an issue but i don't want a UW monitor i would want to can within a year which most UW in that price range are
  6. here is a calculator to do the math but 1 Megabyte/sec is equal to 8 × Megabit/sec. or conversely 1 Megabit/sec(which is internet speed unit) = 0.125 Megabytes/sec. (which is ssd speed unit) https://www.gbmb.org/mbps-to-mbs in your case, 300 megabits is 37.5 megabytes they both have nearly identical acronyms except one is 4 letters and the other 3 so i can understand the mix up if you're not a tech guy
  7. so im considering getting 1 or 2 of these 34 inch LG monitors (LG 34GK950F-B) or one of these 38 inch LG monitors which is coming out later this month(lg-38GL950G-B) or samsung's newest 49in mammoth (LC49RG90SSNXZA) now i have an amd GPU (a 5700xt paired with a i7 4790K @ 4.8ghz) so i don't care for the G sync on the 38in monitor (im not sure if there is a freesync version for the 38inch) the 34in has the less latency or on par with the 38in and is far cheap 38in gives more screen space if i were just going with 1 screen and has the lower latency samsung has full HDR and even more screen space but suffers from poor viewing angles and i think i'd be better off with 2 better 27in monitors than this option feel free to throw any other recommendations but really i want high PPI, low latency and more usable screen space i think since i already have a working great 27 inch monitor i might pair that with the 34 inch since they both have the same screen height and would be the least expensive option; I'm still open to other options
  8. "MB/s" =/= "mbps" those numbers are correct, if you want to download stuff faster you'll need faster internet
  9. if its just games and your speed test and other task are running at gigabit speed, it might be a ping related issue
  10. its coming out on the 29th and you can easily see it on LG's site, in addition its on B&H with that date on it; linus got a really early copy of this monitor https://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-38GL950G-B-gaming-monitor https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1488942-REG/lg_38gl950g_b_38_ultragear_nano_ips.html
  11. personally in addition to my gaming monitor (nixeus 27edg) i have the qx2710, both have the same bezels so they look like twins at a glance here is one example, for just a viewing monitor it has good colors and is inexpensive and i believe is even OC capable though i haven't had luck with it https://www.ebay.com/itm/Refur-Qnix-QX-2710-LED-Evolution-27-Dual-Link-DVI-TILT-Gaming-Monitor/153393756988?hash=item23b6fafb3c:g:bh4AAOSwSk5cZkv3:rk:1:pf:0
  12. i have both speaker and headset audio set-up currently and was wondering which mic i should go with as an amateur streamer and so people can here me without hearing whats out of my speakers i was thinking of just sticking to my headphones and getting the modmic 5, i know some other streamers use on desk mics which i could get away with if i don't use my speakers while streaming or if i shouldn't even think about that, there is a ton of streamers who play couch games without that problem (though they might also have a very expensive budget)
  13. so long story short im looking at two $400 monitors (the newegg one has a promo code) one is 32' and has hdr400 the other is 27' and has hdr 600 https://www.costco.com/LG-32GK850F-B-32"-Class-QHD-HDR-FreeSync-Monitor.product.100454130.html https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16824022583 is there a good picture quality difference between them, all the reviews for the LG are based on the g sync variant which has no HDR what so ever and i haven't seen any through reviews for the LG outside one written article which bunched all variants of the monitor together and then said the freesync was marginally better in different ways to be freesync 2 ready other than the difference and size and HDR quality(which could translate into panel, it says qled but then i saw something say its also VA but that doesn't sound right) they both have similair specs in resolution and refresh rate
  14. yes, very much yes, especially on more demanding games
