Looking to buy a new display for my desktop. Looking at a particular monitor, and need advice please.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to buy a new display for my desktop, whether it be an HDTV or a big PC monitor. I currently using an old 32" 720p LCD TV that's probably going to die pretty soon, which is why I'm looking for a new display for my desktop.

There's one monitor in particular that I'm quite interested in, and that monitor is the AOC Q2963PM 29" widescreen IPS LED monitor. It's a 21:9 2560 x 1080 resolution panoramic widescreen monitor.

My main questions are:
- Does anyone on here have personal experience with this monitor, more specifically in terms of gaming? If so, what do you think of the monitor overall, and is it worth the $500 (CAD) price tag in your opinion, or would a big HDTV be a better investment?
- Is there a list out there of games that support 21:9 aspect ratio/2560 x 1080 resolution? If not, can you please list games that support 21:9 aspect ratio/2560 x 1080 resolution?

Main question is, why isn't this in Monitors and Displays forum.
