Also if anyone is runing a single 980 Ti how is it fairing in some of the latest AAA games?

I have a MSI 980Ti Gaming 6G with a light overclock driving my monitor and it's providing the goods up to now, I play Witcher 3 and BF4.

Witcher 3 runs at 55 - 70Fps with below settings

3440x1440
All settings Ultra
Aliasing off
Hairworks On
Hairworks Aliasing off

DSR x4 and smoothness x15 in Nvidia control panel

I used the below guide which is really useful and the config file edits really work. ( I followed it to the letter and just skipped section 0d, the Ui horizontal tweak was not needed as I believe it's fixed by recent patches that came after the thread.)

You will also need a modded .EXE for full screen cutscenes (not sure why the game goes letterbox on cutscenes)

The latest Nvidia Gync hotfix drivers definitely had a considerable performance boost even on my single GPU.

The below Master game list is a great tool for ultra widescreen gaming

Hope that gets you started

i will test even further tonight and include some pics.

This thread discusses that issue quite a bit and if it's something you wish to have fixed you may want to follow it.

http://community.acer.com/t5/Predator-Discussions/MULTIPLE-Problems-with-New-X34/m-p/393811#M1567

We have discovered that setting the x34 brightness below 50% will generally cause the screen lighting issue. We believe that all the x34's have this issue and the owners who have not found it or reported it are most likely are running their brightness at or above 50%. For anyone not needing to lower their brightness below 50% probably believe they have a perfect monitor which is what I thought as well until I performed the tests. However, unless this issue gets progressively worse I will most likely keep it and for go the rma.

FYI that thread has a lot of other owners reporting other problems with the x34 but the main focus is that back light issue as we have been discussing the issue directly with one of their technical reps.

Btw, I'm in no way trying to tarnish the name of Acer or the x34 monitor. I love my x34 and aside from the back light issue at wake up mine appears to be a perfect monitor. I enjoy gaming on it very much and it is a very beautiful screen to say the least. I am waiting to give my full review of the x34 on Newegg until after Acer has resolved this back light issue. Aside from that my only real complaint is the cost of it being $1300. It is over priced.

So its at home and all set up

Very little BLB
0 Dead pixels
caps at 95hz cannot get 100hz right now, i haven't tried re rolling windows but i know this is a common issue.

After going through games and doing some testing im very happy with this monitor even at 95hz. I don't reckon ill RMA it considering that its 5hz and that i could get a replacement thats worse and have to go through the dozen RMA's.

also iv come from a 1080p 144 hz no gsync to this and i can say sacrificing some settings even lowering the quality for fps in the 90s still looks a great deal better than 1080p ever did.

Just received it. It is the one shown in the top 3 pics: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00U8M8QKG?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00

It's quite heavy too. I haven't installed it yet though since I'm waiting on the monitor.

Doesn't have a ton of swivel left and right (part that screws in the monitor) but more than enough for me since the monitor will be directly in front of me. The arm does if it is hooked up where the arm moves left and right but mine will be where the arm moves up and down.

I'm wondering if I could get by with my GTX Titan for a while with this monitor or if I would need to upgrade to a 980Ti or the likes. Is anyone using a Titan with this monitor? If I do need to upgrade anyone know what would be a good asking price for a lightly used Titan?

PC freezes then crashes on Witcher 3 when I change res to 3440 x 1440 on the main menu? Anybody else getting this?

I had some games crash when I first got the monitor, but haven't had a single issue since using DDU (http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html) to wipe and reinstall my drivers ( hotfix: http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3798/~/geforce-hotfix-driver-358.59).

I also installed the monitor driver from Acer, but thats really nothing more than an inf file. http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers

what titan? titan x is better than 980ti.

I'd suggest getting SLI titan x's or SLI 980 ti's.
