Save for an ultrawide 120hz + Gsync offering for sure, they are wonderful for gaming and productivity. I'm not sure I could go back to a standard aspect ratio now.

I am now using a 55" 4K Sony TV ( bought for me by my Brother last year) but don't use anywhere near full settings on games.

My poor old 970 isn't really up to that anyway so a 2070 super or 2080 super is in the buy list for sometime in the future.

Yeah I think that's the way to go, I'll probably want something around 34" and 1440p, have only had a brief look, but probably looking >£500..

Went for this in the end... ASUS ROG STRIX Curved XG35VQ, 35 Inch UWQHD (3440 x 1440) Gaming Monitor, VA, Up to 100 Hz, 1 ms

Will be vesa mounting it as the stand is huge and the lights are tacky..

I had 2 x 24" before so my usable space is much less for work, but much nicer for gaming!

Just shy of £600 so not cheap and well and truly blowing my original £500 PC build (now over 3 x the budget)  :rofl:

Well worth it, you won't miss that extra space when the ultrawide offers so much real estate with no divide.

Webstorm and other IDEs on an ultrawide is pretty much perfect.

Gsync - If you not had one with it before - You will notice
100hz is OK but 133, 144+ you notice, especially in FPS


But Ultrawide - I know it works your graphics card more with all the pixels but since I got mine - OMG.... (I got the Acer Preditor) when you set a good field of view like in battlefield and see people trying to sneak up on you or snipping people with heavy machine guns.. SO GOOD.

Yeah I just wish I could treat it as two physical monitors, I'm too used to double clicking the title bar, just need to get used to dragging it or using windows + LEFT/RIGHT

Yeah having Sync is pretty good, I pretty much had to compromise somewhere and I didn't want to go smaller or drop to 1080, but without a doubt 100hz is much better than the 60hz Dell UltraSharp U2412M's it replaced!  :thumbup:
