1440p Ultrawide suggestions

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey,

I'm looking for a new Monitor to replace my old garbage 2x24" 1080p ones, I have been looking at the Samsung ones and I quite liked them. Maybe someone has some suggestions. What should it feature?

 

-21:9 Ultrawide

-1440p (the ultrawide version of that)

-plain design, nothing gamer-looking

-ideally more than 60 Hz

-ideally G-Sync (or is freesync compatible with a 980ti? Wasn't there something?)

 

It will be used for occasional gaming and photo editing, but I'm not super picky about the colour accuracy. It just shouldn't be terrible.

Thanks a lot in advance!

Freesync is only compatible with 10 series and up. Granted I would strongly recommend upgrading your GPU for UWQHD. I have a 2080S + 3800x and I am frequently only in the 75-120fps range depending on the game.

 

As for recommendations I have the LG 34GK950F. It's absolutely amazing. I dare say one of the BEST UWQHD monitors on the market. I also believe it does have a G-Sync option, but I have the Freesync. It's 3440x1440, 144hz, 1ms response, Freesync, and amazing colours. The design has a little but of red in it, which I'm not a huge fan of, but it's really not "gamery" and I would say it fits in anywhere. It just has a...unfriendly... price point. What's your budget?

Thanks for the answer, your monitor looks really goog and has nice features. I am relatively flexible with the price but I would prefer to not spend 1000€ on the monitor. (Lets say 600-700 max)

Also I will leave the GPU for now and wait another two or three years before I build a whole new computer. Still have an i7-4770K and in combination with the graphics card it is still enough for me at the moment.

I'm currently looking for exactly the same thing. So far i've found the iiyama gb3461wqsu-b1 which should come out in a few days. Seems extremely promissing with an IPS screen, 1ms response times and 1440P ultrawide at 144hz.

I love my AOC Ultrawide, but I think any Ultrawide is a good investment.

 

I second the idea of upping a GPU/CPU setup.  it's a lot of pixels to push, but worth it if you can swing it.

Just out of curiosity what is your current FPS in games?

 

I was briefly looking into the MAG341CQ. It's honestly nothing special, and overall isn't that great of a monitor it seems, but its a good price and is Ultrawide.


I'd say one of the most common, and popular is the AW3418DW. Since it's Alienware the stand might be a little "extra" for some, but I honestly wouldn't consider it bad. It looks fairly nice, and it's got absolutely nothing on ROG monitors. It's not a bad price, great specs, and I think it might be VESA compatible (a great option if you find a monitor but don't like the stand. I'd recommend VESA mounts to anyone.)

Sorry for the super late answer. I get around 60 (+- a bit) in GTA V (on Linux tho), which is what I am playing mostly. 

BTW does it make a difference that I'm running the GTX980ti in PCIe 3.0 8x?

That looks actually really good. Does anyone have it already?

 

I also looked at the Samsung C49HG90DMU (32:9, 144Hz, 1080) but I think that 1080 pixels are not enough for a monitor that size.

 

Any other suggestions? Thank you so much!

1080p is perfect for that Samsung.  It's stretched width-wise, not height.

I mean...1080 on (basically) a 27" screen is not a lot, especially for text, thats why I would prefer the 1440 version which is again around 1000€
