40" cost more and has slower response

Should check out the new monitors that are 3440 x 1440 like: http://www.lg.com/uk/monitors/lg-34UM95

they are SWWEEEEEEEETTTT - better than the 3x 1080p surround setup i have tongue.gif

29 inch 21:9 1080p ( ultra wide ) is basically just 23.2 inch 16:9 screen, so the ppi on it is solid
34 inch 21:9 1440p = 27,2 inch screen, so it's good doable for sure.

3440x1440 is nice indeed, but it requires 2x more mp to be pushed over 2560x1080p and 2,5x over 1920x1080p, so you need a hefty amount of gpu horse power to boot it. Then also the price is 2/3x as high as a 2560x1080p screen. At that point you are probably better off with a really expensive 700-800 1440p screen that features 144hz/1ms/gsync/freesync, but then again it's not a 21:9 screen tongue.gif

Is the jump to 1440p feasible today with a single GTX 970?

Absolutely. I made the jump to 1440p when I had a 770 and felt it worth it even then. Bear in mind that some hardcore or competitive gamers do not agree and insist on a solid 60fps. Glad I'm not one of them and still enjoy gaming.

Ain't nothing wrong with turning down graphics in competitive games to get that 60 FPS.

Which monitors are affordable to make the jump at 27"?

Korean assembled monitors are most affordable. Just that they are usually no-frills designs (single input DVI, no OSD, just brighness +/- controls). These no frills designs usually involve a more direct connection from GPU to panel which allows them to overclock to higher refresh rates (up to 120hz) and is why they are so popular here. Current trending 27" 1440p Korean monitor:

AA is alot of the issue with low framerates. 1080p has less pixels and needs more AA, 1440p has more pixels and needs less AA. People usually forget that more pixels renders some of the AA moot.

Are there any 'Non-Korean' 1440p / 27" displays you could recommend that don't break the bank?

Depends on your definition of breaking the bank. The Asus PB278Q for $430 on Amazon is always a decent option.

My god, those are really bulky. I'm not even sure my desk can handle the load.
