Help me ascend to an ultrawide

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi after allot of research I have decided that the my first ultrawide will be the LG 34UC88-B. I have been doing allot of reading on this monitor and it looks like its the best ultrawide when it come to QA in terms of BLB etc.

I was planing on getting the X34 or the asus PG348Q but wasting $1200+ for a monitor that i might need to return up to 10 times or more to get an acceptable panel is crazy and no one wasting that amount of cash should ever have to go through something like that. I am surprise those two monitors have not been recalled or stopped being sold altogether makes Asus and Acer look really bad in my eyes. I really do not see the new X34P when its release having any better QA since Acer has been selling a **** ton of x34 and have not improved there QA testing. Why will they now all the sudden start wasting more money on QA testing ? This is just my point of view on all the multiple threads I have read on the x34 and PG348Q. Don't take it personal if you have any of those two monitors and love them then by all means enjoy it they were worth a pretty penny.

The The LG 34UC88 is exactly what I expect to get in terms of QA with almost zero blb etc. when you pay $1000 for a monitor. I only have one issue with it and its that it only has freesync. I plan to use it mainly for gaming if I do pick it up and I only have an nvidia card. I do not plan to get an AMD card anytime soon. I have read allot of threads and all I have been able to find is if you overclock it to 75hz or 80hz and have an nvidia card you get frame skipping.


1. Is there anyone here that has this monitor and been able to overclock it pass 60hz with no frame skipping ?

2. How much of a difference does G-sync make compared to no G-sync ?

3. Would you guys pick LG 34UC88-B or wait a few more months to see if a better panel comes out ?


Thanks

You should give it a try with the ACER or ASUS. G-sync is awesome, I will never go back. It is worth it.thumb.gif Stop overthinking and just do it!

The best part of Gsync is not having to mess around with things like triple buffering, adaptive Vsync, Normal Vsync, and fps limiting to get a gaming experience without screen tearing or unneeded fps drops. It's about as close to plug and play as you're going to get with PC gaming.

Least this has been my experience with higher res Gsync. Gaming at high res with Gsync = easy. Without = pain in the butt. I save countless hours a month because of Gsync that I'd of otherwise spent messing with some of the above mentioned bull.

My X34 = wubsmiley.gif
