I hear that SLi/Navlink is a waste and most games dont support it. I wanted to run dual 2080 Ti too but was put off because of this reason.

I would buy the PG279UQ, or the Acer X27 (which goes for a few hundred less currently). Its a monitor you will keep for quite a while through several upgrade/builds most likely. I don't see mainstream gaming displays moving past 4K for a while.

I've always been an advocate of getting the single fastest GPU you can afford. I never through dual GPUs was worth it, and its even less worth it nowadays. Scaling is pretty poor in most games. You won't be getting near what 2x the performance of a 2080Ti would be.

Get the monitor, which your single 2080 Ti will do a good job of driving (speaking from experience as I currently have one and a X27). Then your monitor will be squared away and you can just focus on upgrading your GPU in subsequent generations. Just my two cents.

some other alternatives, three $500 ones in triple surround

ROG Swift PG278QR 27” 1440p 1ms 165Hz DP

the 49" 5120x1440 ones are around that price range too

this actually makes sense As I sold off my titan rtx and grabbed a 2080ti because the performance was too close to justify the price hike on the titan rtx. I did just get a LG C9 oled and I wouldn't want to always play on a 65 screen. So having that second display around would be like the best of both worlds for me.

I don't like having bezels triple monitor setup is out of the question and I don't like how ultrawide would have black bars around it if I wanted to watch a movie. This is why I am sticking to 16:9

Just as a note if you are not aware but the Asus PG27UQ has a small fan on the back to help with cooling and said fan can be loud for some people
