Hi guys,

Im buying a second monitor ( my current is a 60hz 27" monitor) which is 144hz and is curved (also 27").

Idk what it will look like next to a flat monitor. I wont buy it if it looks stupid.

Do you have a TV that you can put next to it? That'll be a fairly good indication

My center monitor is flat and the side monitors curved. If I only had two and had them side by side, it would look silly.
