Worlds greatest gaming monitor.. drum roll

Turtle Rig
 Share

Ok after much research I have come to find that the Samsung 49" 32:9 3840x1080 curved @ 144Hz and HDR and QLED.  It is 1k.

 

I want to give my monitor to my old man and buy this baby, however IM afraid I will not like the vertical ,, going from 2160p to 1080p vertical ?

 

What would you guys do.  I game and also do DAW and general sh*T ,,

Remember that while this is a very wide monitor, the vertical pixel count is still the same as 1080p so it doesn't have the greatest pixel density. If I were looking for such monitor, I'd only look for 1440p ultrawide panels for higher image quality and sharpness.

Thanks for your response chief Morgan.....  Ya I don't know if I can go from 2160p to 1080p vertical .. sighs.  Perhaps I can overclock the monitor or set a custom resolution for 1440p res..... or DSR ,,,,,,,,, sighs

I did not know this Morgan.....  Yes eventually I want to game @ 1440p but I can't right now with my video card.  Maybe in a year or two I will adopt 1440p or go to 4k by that time.

 

We can try to overclock the monitor so the 1080p is 1440p.  

 

Which monitor you recommend if price is no issue ?  Also I still don't know the difference between IPS and VA and NA panels.  Which 1440p would you recommend screen size the larger the better.

DSR/VSR make image blurry and it's not a viable option IMO for long-term gaming, especially if you buy a 1K USD monitor and want to use it right away...

I'd look into 1440p Ultrawide 144Hz monitors instead if you're into ultrawide, if you went from 2160p to 1080p then you'd really feel terrible in front of this monitor because of low pixel density and significantly worse image quality. Think of the 49" Samsung monitor as two ~27" 1080p panels combined into one, cool but not better than 4K 16:9 IMO unless you really need that wide screen space and can't afford a higher resolution monitor with that aspect ratio & size.

i dont think it works this way..

you can OC refresh rate... not resolution... 

 

HOWEVER, id honestly just go for 1440p 144hz. it's easier and cheaper to find that. do you really need ultrawide?

ultrawide has pretty limited support in games so i wouldnt call this the ultimate gaming monitor tbh

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

Builds:

Yes I don't want to feel like a douche once I set it up and see 1080p ……. sighs.. Im new to wide screens,,,, The reason this monitor attracts me because it has all I want except resolution LOL.    curved 144hz QLED …….and 49" ….. … Hmm why technology cant make this darn monitor a 4k monitor sighs..

Yeah, saw the 1440p one going for 800 bucks lately.  Not sure if that sale is still on going.  Best Buy actually had it down that low last I checked.

Just checked, yep, Best Buy still selling the AW3418DW for 800 bucks.

You'd be surprised, every game I've played (and I've played some really old games) has ultrawide support, but my uncle does have the samsung monitor that OP is talking about. It is really nice, and you have to sit far away from it anyway to see the whole damn thing, but he's tried a bunch of games with it, and nearly all of them require a lot of fucking around in the Nvidia control panel to actually have games run stably on it.

the only two gammes that havent either given me blackbars trying to run wider than 16:9 or had the most broken UI imaginable, are minecraft and CIV V. i mostly play competative shooters like Paladins and CS:GO but id stick to a 16:9 aspect if gaming is the main concern as i dont really like blackbars. 

 

wouldnt get this monitor anyway as id throw up within the first 15min of using it, i seem to be alergic to curved screens for some reason :(

Yeah he loves it, he uses it for CAD, games, and youtube mostly. Screen real-estate is amazing. I have used it, and since you sit so far away from it, it doesn't look as bad as you think it would, but it would still be easy to tell the difference between it and a 1440p monitor if you put them side by side.

Thanks for that info,  good to hear he likes it and thanks for telling me what he uses it for.  My concern is the vertical resolution,, Im using 2160p,, and 1080 wont give much realstate up and down,,, however the 3840 width is good..... juts 1080p seems like a downgrade to me.  What you think ?  Does the sexy looks and QLED the 144hz make up for the lack of real estate vertically ?  Thanks again

I mean its up to you, if you've seen how 1440p looks compared to 1080p, then figure which one will be helpful for what you'll use it for.
