What kind of framerates do you get; And what resolution is the monitor?

3440x1440p with VRR is perfect for GTX980 Ti for now. It's just not worth it to spend $1300 for the current G-Sync screens that can support your GPU. You could probably sell the GTX980 Ti and buy a Vega + FreeSync for same money as G-Sync.

I have the ViewSonic XG2401, 144Hz/1080p. I mainly play OW or WoT and have no issues keeping 144 FPS minimum, which is where I cap it. It doesn't really help you though, since you're looking at an entirely different resolution and probably completely different games.

well still a lot better than amd card with g-sync monitor cause you're able to use adaptive v-sync and fast sync.
if that's the monitor you want, ask yourself the question whether it would be worth that much money if it was a fixed refresh display. if yes, then go for it.

So, I guess my 'real' question is: The 980Ti CAN run games at 60+FPS at 3440x1440?

yes but not maxed out. mix high with ultra and some not-so-taxing AA like SMAA instead of MSAA and you're rolling at 60 fps smoothly.

I just read you want high settings with no aa, and 980Ti should rip through 3440x1440p with these settings at +60fps in pretty much everything.

Still, dropping $1K on a display without being able to use adaptive refresh on it..... I'd save some more for the pg348q or wait for a killer deal.

actually you'r losing g-sync AND ulmb

IDK if you play fast paced games but ulmb kicks ass in those. not only shooter games, but parkour/melee ones like Dying Light play incredibly well with ulmb.

I wouldn't - The (real) smoothness begins at 100+ Hz (and fps).

OC'ing monitors often results in dropped frames.

Ive also been looking at just doing a triple 1080p setup w/ 3 of these monitors: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UFCVKI4/ref=twister_B00X3PRDF4?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 and this monitor stand: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006JG9RQ2/ref=ox_sc_act_title_5?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=AUQKNZ1OCJZ06

 

And thats ^^^ cheaper than most of the curved displays at around $699
