Decision on a 1440p 21:9 Monitor

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello, I am going to be looking for (2) 21:9 monitors to run with my new build.

Use: Several Documents at once, basic video editing, photo editing, minor league gaming, a lot of database access, PC is my multimedia platform. (No tv in apartment)
Budget: $700 for BOTH monitors or if the value is right can move this to $1,000 if it is reasonable to do so
Size: 27-29" or 32-34" (Larger would be nicer but might be out of my budget I don't know)
Resolution: 1440p
Curved: Meh, might look nicer with dual screens like I want?

So what is the best monitor fitting that criteria?

What graphics card would I need to run say (2) 34" 21:9 1440p?


Thanks in advanced! thumb.gif

AFAIK, you will not be able to purchase two 34" 21:9 monitors with a $700 budget. Maybe two 29" 21:9 monitors but then it wouldn't be 1440P resolution. I've recently seen the LG 29" go for about $300, you could get two of those but it will be impossible to get two 34" 21:9 for $700. One 34" already cost about $700 and one 34" curved 21:9 is about $1,000.

Thanks for the response, I didn't know that was unattainable!

So for the 29" then, you said an LG for around $300 a pop for 1440p? Do you have a model number for that one?

Thanks!

The 29" screens are not 1440P, they are 1080P monitors (2560×1080). The best you could do is two 29" 21:9 monitors. I assume you have the desk space for that. LG UM67P, it was on sale a while back for $279.99 on NewEgg. You could get the LG UB67B for $327.99 if you buy it from Jet.com and use the 20% off now code but you'd have to get a second person/account to purchase the second one for you. Not sure where you're located but this is US only.

I do live in the US so that's no problem. Perfect information though, thank you for those models! You're awesome! thumb.gif
