Massdrop vast worth it?

Before linus's recent video on the massdrop vast I was pretty set on the Samsung chg70. However after the release of that I am now deciding between that and the more expensive chg70. What would you recommend for casual gaming on a r9 390 with an emphasis on immersion and beauty of the screen

 

Edit: Responding to some of the comments. Yes I do plan to upgrade my gpu soon to better handle higher resolutions

Probably the Vast, or a Predator X34 if you've got the money for it....

r9 390

Not the most powerful GPU nowadays, might not be enough for 3440x1440p... having that in mind I'd actually advise the LG 29UM68-P for its much more cheaper price tag while still being a gorgeous IPS panel, 2560x1080p75hz that features Freesync... being one of the best 29 inches ultrawide out there it should give good gaming immersion.

I think as a cheaper option to the x34/pg34 its a great option, for me I wanted the x34a and that's what I got, if you don't want to spend that money or don't like the 34a then the vast is a great option, you get what you pay for most times
