Is 2560x1080 34” 144Hz worth it?

Oh no the GTX 1070 is adequate as long as OP bothers adjusting the in-game settings properly:

 

And like mentioned he'll already own a monitor that will make sense upgrade the GPU to something beefier here in a few years.

Yea but now its higher resolution at a cost of actual in-game quality. 

Hey, 

So I’m upgrading my monitor to an ultrawide and looked into LG 34uc79g-b. It has 2560X1080 res and 144Hz refresh rate. 

I got a GTX 1070 so a 3440X1440 will be hard to operate above 60Hz and I don’t think it’s worth it. 

Also, the price between the 34uc79g-b and a 3440X1440 100+Hz (in my country) is 600$ so it’s really expensive. 

My main usage is gaming, browsing and school work. 

Is the low pixel density will have a big impact?

 

thanks :)

I use a 1080p 144hz panel. I'm not super picky when it comes to resolutions but the 144 makes a big difference.

 

The LG 34UC79G-B is an ultrawide so you have to keep that in mind too. I hate gaming under 120 hz, it really is a big difference. It's up to you honestly.

It's a 1080p, 27inch display with an extra few inches of width. With a 1070, you should be fine. The biggest problem will be a lot of games won't like it.

Its good for gaming and media consumption. I have Alienware AW3418HW laying around, which is identical to LG monitor you mentioned. I've tried it for gaming and its really good. People might say the resolution is too bad or whatnot, but its lies. PPI is perfectly adequate for gaming. You don't see individual pixels or any kind of "blur" due to low PPI. And you get higher FPS because 1080p ultrawide is ALOT easier to run compared to 1440p which is around 75% more pixels.

 

I have compared my X34 (Which is 3440x1440) to this Alienware and FPS difference is very noticeable on GTX1080. In BF5 I get 35-40 more FPS on 1080p compared to 1440p, and picture quality doesn't look that much different. I think FPS gain outweighs better image quality of 1440p by miles.

 

I'm sending both of those monitors back, the Alienware and X34 because both have problems. X34 got terrible backlight bleed, and Alieware arrived with defect. I will be getting x2 of those LG monitors instead, one for myself and one as a Christmas gift.  I very much enjoyed having much higher FPS compared to higher PPI.

 

Go for it, don't hesitate.

No, 2560x1080p is a 29 inch ultrawide resolution, at 34 inch the pixelation is so bad you'll hate it.

 

Not enough pixels for the screen size, 34 inch was made for 3440x1440p if you want to cheap up you can by all means still go 2560x1080p but get the LG 29UM69-G which can be overclocked as high as 100hz on display port, while having a truly good pixel density.

 

Sadly there are no high refresh rate (144hz) variants at 29'' the closes would be the Acer Predator Z301CT which is a 2560x1080p 30inch ultrawide (still great pixel density) that features a whooping 200hz refresh rate and has g-sync support...

 

But then it probably would be as pricey as getting a 75hz 3440x1440p 34 inch ultrawide from LG which to me in particularly offers better gaming quality unless you're specifically after e-sports which isn't really ultrawides forté.

You made me really confused lol.

I think I'll get the 34uc79 and if it'll be bad I send it back and get a 3440x1440 120/100Hz.

If this is an option, albeit more expensive, why not go with it already? It'll be a screen that will last many many years with you as hardly any thing much better is coming out any time soon.

 

I personally favour the image quality over refresh rate, I'd say a 1440p ultrawide at 100hz is by all means a perfect experience already and as mentioned its a screen that probably gonna be with you for 10+ years just fine.

The greatest majority of games supports 21:9 perfectly fine, the instances you'll have issues are in MOBAs (League of Legends, DOTA and alikes) which they don't support 21:9 to avoid "unfair advantage" which is idiotic to say the least and games made by Blizzard because Blizzard HATES 21:9 for some reason and none of their games support it.

 

Every thing else I can think of has no troubles with the aspect ratio.

1440p ultrawise 100Hz is perfect yes. But you need a perfect PC for it. Thats atleast 1080ti or higher to get stable 100FPS at 1440p ultrawide. We're talking 2000 USD or more.

Yea but now its higher resolution at a cost of actual in-game quality.

I switched my 25” 2560X1440 monitor to a 1920x1080 and it looked REALLY bad. 

That ppi is even higher than the lg 34uc79g. 

Is that (and worse) how 2560x1080 34” looks like or my settings on my computer not optimized and it looked bad? (I just switched the resolution via the display settings in windows).

When I look on a different 24” 1920X1080 display it looks much better than my display on that resolution.

Because using lower than native resolution will always look worse than using monitor's native resolution.

Hey,
I don’t know if I can post links in here, if not then sorry, please delete it. 
I saw this display and it’s really cheap. 
I cant seem to find much info about it. Do you think it’s legit?
