Well, after reading this thread and pretty much scouring the net researching what monitor I'm going to buy for my next gaming rig I went and preordered this one from b&h, it's 999 there and since they charge international credit cards instantly on preorders (as opposed to us cards where they only charge when they ship) you can say my monitor is paid for and there's no turning back.

I was torn between the asus rog swift gsync monitor that's taking forever to come out (1440p and 3d) the samsung 4k super deal they is ud590 and this one.

They all had their pros and cons, for a while the 4k seemed to be the obvious choice but I designed my build around a mini tower case I really liked that would look really cool on top or my bedroom desk (a supposed to under it over the rug) and this case only fits one gpu, not only that but I'm not the biggest fan of sli and I don't want to have to put another cent into this rig for at least 3 years so I spoiled myself and went with a titan black signature superclocked from evga, (tshirt!) And that card, as beefy as it is, cannot drive a 4k monitor on its own at descent settings, even if it somewhat does, it won't in a couple of years.

Then you have the amazing gamegasmic asus rog swift that....never happened, I was going to buy that for sure but whoa did they drop the ball there, it still isn't out and no announcement as to when, you can't even preorder. TN panel, nyche market, 1440p when 4k is close and still no announcement, seriously, I hope it sells well.

Then this one, which will be driven perfectly by my gpu, maybe not at ridiculous fps but the monitor is only 60mhz so it doesn't matter much, I also always wanted to try surround gaming but always figured the wife would give me the big "all that just for gaming" look, but then I show her the three monitors I wanted and when she saw this one she instantly said "that's going to look awesome in in our room" and I'm saying "right?" Actually thinking of how awesome titnfall and star citizen are going to look. Yes, 60mhz may be a compromise for some but I rather get more viewing area plus I don't even have the gpu power to get crazy frame rates at higher settings.

What do you guys recon I'll be getting at full resolution in this monitor with an overclocked titan black? (I7 4770k, 16gb g.skills) in bf4 at ultra?

Anyways, that's my first post too so. Hello, been a long time rider but never made an account not sure why but since reading this whole thread was a big part on the purchase of the only missing part of my new rig, I decided to make a post about it.

21:9 is like vr. it's more immersive because it gives more side vision, but is bad for competitive gaming because you have to move your head too much to see what is going on. that and it's not made for video yet. plus for it to be really immersive it would need to be curved. but even then i wonder if competitive fps/strategy players would find it a handicap. ultimately, i just don't think the world is ready for 21:9 yet

Sure you have to move your head to see but remember you are looking at things you weren't seeing before, it's not like it is the same image you used to see before, only stretched.. If that were the case then yeah, you have to move your head to see something you could see before without moving, that would be a horrible disadvantage, but remember in here you are moving your head to see more, if you don't want to just don't move it and it'll be just as it was before, no more, no less. If yo happen to find it distracting you can simply go back to your old resolution with letter boxing, this monitor is so big that it still equals a 27inch monitor in height.

Btw I agree on VR, that is a bit distracting for competitive gameplay but in this type of monitor all you need is a flick of the eyes to see if someone is there, while in VR it tends to be like...looking all over, really stupid, laughing and going hahaha cooooll, this is da future! And then you got 0 kills in titan fall

You are right. If you want to spend $500+ in a monitor especially high resolution you want FreeSync or G-Sync. Right now i think its the worse time to buy a Monitor to keep. My U2711 is still pretty good for me and when i replace it i want higher resolution, better screen technology, bigger size and FreeSync/G-Sync for the same money. I payed $700 3 years ago.
Right now i am waiting for a 4K 32 inch with FreeSync IPS for under $800.

Same train exactly. There needs to be something really good without breaking the bank to move me away from my U2711. rolleyes.gif
