    Best 1440p Monitor?

    So I sold my U3011 setup when I moved into my new house and have been running on an Asus VW266H for a year now and its time to step it up. This will be for gaming only (and obv. web browsing). I was originally looking to go the 21:9 route as I know a lot of MMO players really enjoy them, but...

    Replacing my U3011 - 27" 1440p or 21:9?

    Thanks but after years of 2560x1600 and having seen some 2560x1080 I'm definitely going with either 1440p ultra wide, 27inch or 4k if I can get the gpu power.

    Replacing my U3011 - 27" 1440p or 21:9?

    See I don't really play FPS games though so I'm not sure I have the same need or will see the difference of a 144hz gsync. More than 80% of the time I spend playing MMO's. It would save me $100-$200 though lol.

    Replacing my U3011 - 27" 1440p or 21:9?

    Amazon having the Dell 34 for 899 with the main 27inch choices hovering around 750 makes me want to go with the Dell as its not too much more expensive. Waiting for the Acer 34 would be great but the price point is too high for me. If I saw a sale on one of these though I'd probably have already...

    Replacing my U3011 - 27" 1440p or 21:9?

    I see posts in some of the threads getting some of the monitors mentioned for steals, are there promotions I'm missing or are these guys getting warehouse deals and such?

    Replacing my U3011 - 27" 1440p or 21:9?

    Due to a recent move I had to part with my beloved U3011. Currently I'm working off an old Asus 24" 1080p monitor and it is just about that time to replace it. I'm running a GTX 970, there's a slight chance I'll add another or make a push to maybe a ti. I have a 680 in the closet and between...

    34" 21:9 UltraWide Displays (3440x1440) - LG UM95/UM65 & Dell U3415W

    Torn between the Dell IPS and Samsung VA... It'll be 100% for gaming most of which are MMO/Moba the rest FPS.

    Official LG Curved Ultrawide 34UC97 thread

    Everyone's been telling me that if you're looking to primarily game on it, the VA Samsung is the way to go. If you're looking for multimedia, professional apps etc, the Dell IPS. I only game and have been using an IPS for a couple years, haven't decided which to go with since I've grown...

    Upgrading from i7-950... 4790k, 5820k, or wait?

    Thanks, love you guys. Part of me wants to upgrade for the sheer fun of upgrading, but if I'm not hitting that bottleneck then I can invest the money on another 970 and get a PSU in the meantime.

    Upgrading from i7-950... 4790k, 5820k, or wait?

    The main objective is to upgrade my 950 that I've been running @4.0ghz forever. My PSU is starting to make noise and is probably on the way out so its a good time for me to do a full upgrade. I figured I'd just recycle the old stuff into her computer, I'm not looking to specifically build her...

    Upgrading from i7-950... 4790k, 5820k, or wait?

    Basically I'm looking to upgrade my CPU/Mobo/Ram and recycle my current into my Fiance's computer to beef it up. The problem is I don't want to do it for an arm and a leg, but I'd like to get the best bang for my buck, and the best options available. My system is used almost entirely for...

    The Official GTX980/970 OC & Benchmark Perf. Thread

    Just picked up the Best Buy reference 970 (the 980/titan blower model). This is my first attempt at OCing a card in years, my ASIC is 71.7% out of the box. And here's what I've gotten so far playing around with heaven for a bit. I don't know how to get my power limit passed 106% and this is...

    4k vs. 21:9 1440p

    He is looking at a 32inch option, which while having more pixels, is nowhere near as drastic of a size difference.

    Which 970 Are You Buying?

    My 10% off coupon wouldn't work with the combined free game from nvidia, so after price match (353.99) and tax I was out the door spending like 375. Now the zero tax from tiger direct for the msi 4g is killing me since it would have been cheaper (but I wouldn't have it installed today). Gotta...
