21:9 2560x1080 vs 2560x1440p kips

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Right now they have the 21:9 2560x1080 kips' panels for pretty cheap, about the same as the 27in 2560x1440 kips'. I actually already have a X-star 2560x1440p monitor that I overclocked to 110hz with no problems. I really think I would like the Ultra wide monitor, but the only thing that brings me back down to reality is that it has a slightly smaller resolution to what I have already, But it will give my gpus a slight break, but I will probably loose 110-120hz.

This is more of an opinion question post, I use my monitor mostly for gaming both online competitve and offline casual as well as school and tv shows. I didn't see anyone else asking between the two at this price range.


I also just found this to make things more difficult, its a 2880x1620 res monitor. Im not super interested in it, but it might be worth getting instead.

I think the 21:9 kips panels are only 75Hz max, but i'm also not sure if anyone has tried over clocking it. I have a Qnix 1440p monitor @ 110hz as well, and I remember when I updated my drivers and the monitor patch wasn't out yet, I was down to 60hz.
It was incredibly jarring going from 110hz in BF3 to 60hz.

You're kind of used to 110hz now, and while you will get used to it, it's just not the same. It may look better (subjective FOV vs detail), but losing the refresh rates isn't an option (for me anyway).

I'll be waiting for a high refresh rate 21:9 monitor to come out before I replace my 1440p 110hz PLS Qnix and then if my single 290 can't handle that I guess I'll have to build a brand X99 new system. I can say this with confidence because I know that high refresh rate 21:9 IPS monitors won't come out for a good while.
