Oh man thanks for putting up with my dumbass. I don't mean to clog up this thread with my stupid newb questions and so forth , it's just that they seemed to of just started here since the thread was about a specific monitor I was looking at. I guess that monitor I posted in my link above is about the best I can get I guess. And it does seem like a pretty popular monitor that does pretty much what I need. And like I was saying , I can get one for $500.00 or less from a local seller here , but I wanted input from you guys first. For what I have , do you guys think I could get that monitor in my link to work ok for me then?

BTW....I do remember the old rules here , and that's rep someone who helps you. So Mitchell , Boredgunner and Zajeb....all +1 rep from me. Thank you for your help guys.

Hey,

So if you won't be upgrading your graphics cards anytime in the future, then you will not be able to use a monitor with variable refresh rate technology (Freesync or G-sync). So if you just want a 34" 21:9 ultrawide monitor, you have two options a 2560x1080 or 3440x1440 resolution one. Naturally the 2560x1080 ones will be easier to run games at ultra on, and will also be cheaper. On the flipside, 3440x1440 is a beautiful resolution, the PPI at 34' will be great, and you can always just run intensive games at 2560x1080 on your 3440x1440 monitor. If you can get the 34um95 for less than $500, I think that is a solid deal. On the other hand, I know Dell's curved 34" 3440x1440 monitor is approaching the $600 mark, maybe by Black Friday it'll get even lower.

Also, thunderbolt is primarily useful for mac users. For example, if I have the 34um95, I hook up my PC via displayport, hook up my mouse and keyboard to the monitor's internal hub, and then hook up a macbook pro via thunderbolt. Any time I switch the monitor's input from PC to Mac, the keyboard and mouse will follow it, potentially allowing you to use your mechanical keyboard and mouse with your macbook pro very easily.

I've got a question about GPU too:
If I get this monitor, I fear my MSI GTX 780 won't suffice for this monitor and newer games (Witcher 3, GTA V, Fallout 4 etc). I think to upgrade to a MSI GTX 980 ti.
Do you think that is enough to power the resolution at acceptable postprocessing settings?

Yes, a single 980 Ti is enough! You get around 40-60fps in the newest games with high/ultra settings.

$891 shipped for this now. That's nearly 150 off than normal! It's starting to come down.

I'd expect the Freesync version to drop though... there's no reason for that to be as expensive as it is. G-Sync however, given the extra cost for the module, is likely to stay high for a while yet.

@clubber_lang - If you know you're sticking with AMD moving forward, get this. thumb.gif

As soon as you can, sell the video cards you have and pick up a Fury X or a pair of used 290x.

The above is JMHO of course. thumb.gif

The titanX is incredibly underestimated. Mine runs at 1467 Max i believe. My brother owns the Evga Kingpin and the card is a total dud on air. Don't get me wrong its gorgeous. But it artifacts at +10 mhz. Try and put +50mhz on the memory.....artifacts. if your gonna spend 1000$ on a gpu get the titan. These high spec aftermarket cards are kinda a waste of time. If you get a good chip its gonna kick ass on a reference pcb. Even the msi lightening only got like 1475 i think in the review I saw. Some of the cards are only a few $ more so no harm in it.....but spend hundreds of dollars extra on a KINGPIN that artifacts at +10 mhz and guess what EVGA tells you when u call them.........

I've been reading through your recent posts and as far as I agree that for today getting standard non free sync/g sync monitor makes sense but how much exactly would you save ?
And if you think about it in few months or so you might decide to upgrade your graphic card and than you may very well find yourself in a situation when you'll think ''man I should have bought' X34''
You might save 200/300 now but is it worth it ? usually people keep monitors longer than GPU's so it might not be a best decision in the long run.
If I were you I'd get x34 now and later on sell your 7970's and upgrade to single GPU wether it's Nvidia or AMD It's up to you, both GSync and Freesync make big difference in games and since you're spending around 1k on a monitor it might be a good idea to have it.
I don't mean to confuse you just thought to give you another take on the situation, I know I like to consider all the options when making those decisions.
