Looking for an 'upgrade' from 5760x1080

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello all -

 

I’m pondering a display upgrade from my current setup, consisting of 3x XL2420Ts (1080p 120Hz) and a 1080p 60Hz. Reason being my use case changing a fair bit since my original purchase. My current use scenario is a balance between gaming (CS:GO, Arma, Terraria), ‘professional’ apps (Photoshop, Maya, 3DS Max), and web browsing (Reddit, Youtube). An important detail is I only use professional apps for hobbyist purposes, so color accuracy isn’t a mission-critical variable. I don’t play CSGO (or many video games) very seriously, so a high refresh rate or low response time isn’t incredibly important either, although they would be nice. My current GPU is a GTX 690, however I have two 980s for SLI in the mail.

 

A major factor changing my decision to upgrade is how inconvenient and clunky I find 4 1080p monitors to be for apps like Maya - I would rather have a higher-resolution display with thin or no bezels where I could have multiple windows, on the same display, at a reasonable quality. My current top choice for a new monitor is the Dell U3415W (34” 3440x1440 21:9) - this seems to be a good compromise between an immersive gaming experience, and amount of screen real estate for productivity and web browsing. The price does seem a bit high (currently $899 USD), especially when compared to 4K 60Hz monitors going on sale for <$300. I’m torn on this decision when considering even more options (1440p?), so some input from other users would be nice. I don't have a set budget, however going above the ultrawide price range (~$900 USD) would be too much. Thanks

Could you link me to a 1920 x 1080 monitor?

1st of all, you can forget a single 16:9 upgrade, it will be physically painful.

2ndly - good choice of going away from the 3monitor bezel-stretchfinity setup.

3rdly since you had 120hz monitors, it will be very uncomfortable to go to JUST a 60hz 21:9

 

So, you want this:  http://www.amazon.com/Acer-XR341CK-bmijpphz-34-inch-UltraWide/dp/B0111MRT90/?tag=electronicsmini-20

3440x1440, IPS, 75hz, freesync (even if you dont use freesync, you at least get the 75hz IPS)

 

Yes, its 1100$... i know, i know, but i suggest you wait for when its on salethen. Because it really wont be truly satisfying to upgrade to anything less than this.
