I just had a quick look and it seems to only support 100 x 100 VESA?

Hence why I said adapter. Just get a 200x200 vesa to 100x100 vesa adapter. The lx can comfortably handle a 9kg display and yours inst close to that.

I'm considering buying a Gigabyte FV43U but I was hoping for some recommendations on a VESA monitor arm, as the last one I bought for a 35" monitor wasn't up to the task!

You'll have to provide a little bit more data.  Are you looking for desktop?  Clamp on?  Articulating/spring loaded?

I'm not really sure, as per the title I would like something which attaches to the desk and is compatible with the 200mm x 200m VESA mounting but would consider any good suggestions

I used Bewiser arm, some Chinese brand. It's fine but not the greatest thus far. If you get one, I suggest looking for something with a good vertical adjustment capability - and don't care too much about horizontal.

 

Actually, I would recommend looking for something with the stiffest horizontal adjustment you could find none at all even. Because of the wierd power cord placement of this monitor (it's at the opposite of DP and HDMI ports), you'll have some very limited horizontal adjustment regardless of the arm you used for this monitor (the power cord will keep pulling it back no matter what you do) 

 

On the other, a 43 inch monitor is pretty tall, you many want to pull it down to your face a lot more than you thought. Thus, vertical swing is a lot more important.

They look good but sadly seemingly not available in the UK, but I'll try to search further when I get home from work

Yeah, that's pretty much my experience with my last stand, which is why I want to get a quality stand this time!

Ahhh sorry, I didn't understand you.

 

Yes, that should work!
