I'll say one thing though, this has made me interested in the Dell U2913WM. I don't like triple monitors because of the bezels and the angling of the monitors. I would much rather have a large widescreen monitor to look at straight ahead.

Is the image letterboxed or still filling the entire screen? If it is still filling the whole screen, you need to set GPU scaling to aspect ratio in the Nvidia control panel.

The desktop is letterboxed, but when I load up BF3 it fills up the entire screen. Is gpu scaling under "adjust desktop size and position" ? If so, it's already set to aspect ration; should I tick off "override the scaling mode set by game and programs"

Also make sure your display isn't trying to interfere with its own scaling.






This is what 2560x1080 should look like on a 2560x1440 screen. Top is 16:9, bottom is 21:9. Notice that nothing is stretched or compressed (yes, things are smaller and composed of less pixels, but 3414x1440 displays don't exist). Things also get smaller in any game that has an adjustable FOV, so it's the same difference.

The issue that causes confusion in this thread is everyone is 'oh noes 21:9 chops the top and bottom of my 27" display off,' when in actuality a 29" 21:9 display should be compared to extending a 23" 1080p display 6 inches wider. Because physically, that's exactly what it is.

That said, I am all for more vertical lines, and if a 3414x1440 display existed I don't think many people would have an issue with that.

Alright, thanks a lot. Gonna give this a try. I'm assuming that it would be better to get a the dell 29XX if you want to game at 21:9 rather than change the resolution on a 1440p monitor. I can't wait till we get 4k+ monitors.

Depends on how well you tolerate letterboxing. At least try it for a bit to see if you prefer it over 16:9. I ran 1920x810 for a while on my 24" to get a feel for it. Also, some games don't like the ultrawide resolution, so those titles will be played at 1920x1080 with pillarboxing. I haven't run into more than a handful so far, but they are definitely out there.

OH SNAP! You bequeathed me with my second flame. wheee.gif Presumably anyhow. tongue.gif

Alright it's working and its badass. It even affects audio positioning in BF3. I don't know why I'm only hearing about this now.

I definitely prefer this over 16:9, but it's good enough on my monitor. I kinda get the best of both worlds since I don't mind the letterboxing.
