How wide is wide enough? Need help

Go to solution Solved by narrdarr,

Dell Alienware AW3418DW

120hz gsync

 

I'm torn between between the wider of two evils.  

 

In this corner sporting the higher resolution of 3440 x 1440 at 100hz and including G-sync as I have an GTX 1080:

And in this corner sporting the wider and "in a word, pretty dank" higher 144hz 3840 x 1080 experience:

Not like I can go wrong with either.  However, any help is appreciated.  Since Asus's 32:9 offering and ROG Swift PG35VQ are STILL nowhere to be found.  

 

Thank you

I would personally choose the ROG for gaming, as 3840x1080 will be a bummer in a lot of games. and the resolution on the rog is technicly higher, so that would be my choise.

 

for productivity that samsung would be pretty dank...

I find the sweet spot is 21:9.  Wider than that is only good if it's just peripheral wrapping, but many games would put UI elements all the way right and left, which is a touch too far for me.

So I've been looking around and apparently theres one that came out in 2017!  the ROG Swift ROG Swift PG35VQ  ... 

 

... oh it was announced 

 

... a year and a half ago

 

Why am I imagining that scene from "V for Vendetta" where John Hurt says "Everyday, another failure!"?  

 

joking around, sorry. 

 

Thank you all so far.  I'm really loyal to the ROG badge, cause I'm a hopeless, pathetic fanboy.  I'm not overly fond of the Predator line and I think the Dell looks nicer and the mount look a little better.  So instead of narrowing things down ... !

 

We should get Linus to do a round up of all these guys.  How important is CES anyway.   I remember back in 2017 where they showed us a plucky young monitor called the PG35VQ ...

Hey, since Nvidia is supporting all manner of adaptive sync now... Would anyone be really disappointed if I went back to the Samsung CHG90? 

 

I guess that was already addressed, more resolution with the 1440 and too wide.

Okay, the Alienware was my top contender but Check It!

Acer XR382CQK 38" IPS Curved Gaming Monitor, UW-QHD 21:9 3840 x 1600, 75 Hz 5ms, FreeSync

sure it's not 120 Hz but it is 75 Hz and the resolution is the Most Massive-est!

 

 

... I mean if Asus doesn't have the "pixels" to put out PG35VQ this CES.   I mean that's what I want, but next gen just isn't getting here fast enough

Naw, 3440x1440 at 120Hz is the way to play.

I'm coming around to what you're saying more and more.  The Alienware seems like the top of the pile more and more

 

... but Holy crap, did you see the Legion Y44w?  

 

Maybe this is going to be the year of the display
