To Upgrade or Not to Upgrade?

I am currently using an old samsung 2370hd (1080p, ~23 inches), and I was wondering if it's worth it to get a monitor of the same resolution for better size, image quality, etc, like this

I don't need speakers on it, and my video card is an R9 380.

Get a ultrawide, 2560x1080p, ITs so good, i just got one today

I was considering one, but I thought that if I want to watch/play content in 16:9, I'm going to have very ugly and distracting black bars on the screen, similar to playing in 4:3 right now. It does seem like getting a 21:9 would be cool when it works in my favor.

their not EXTREMELY distracting (if you like to be in the dark)

and not every game supports 21:9 but its still great!

It's not so much support as being able to drive it. When playing The Witcher 3, I would left with the choice of either 21:9 or higher settings at 1080p, a difficult one to say the least since some of the settings are crucial to the game's visual fidelity.

That is pretty poor tbh.

Bear in mind that 1080p is pretty poor once you go past 27 inches and at that point 1440p in a good choice.

Your system might handle medium settings at that res which is worth considering.

Currently running medium with select settings like AO and texture quality turned up. 50-60 fps except in some cutscenes.
