    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...

    Good to know, leaving for Best Buy now.

    Which 970 Are You Buying?

    I think there is a restocking fee or something, hopefully not. My conclusion is that the BB card will be enough cheaper, after tax and the 10% discount and price match, that it makes a second one down the road much more likely. Plus, if I do SLI, then the blower cards are even more preferred...

    Which 970 Are You Buying?

    I'm torn right now. I have a 10% off for best buy which makes the reference either $337.32 out the door after price match, or closer to $300 if they will price match a different model which I doubt. Then the MSI 4G is $375 shipped with tax. I have a FT02 rotated case and a blower style fan...

    Acer B326HK - 4k 32" monitor sub 1k euro

    Ugh I hate that its so low. Its sitting in my cart on Newegg and I'm not gonna buy it, have my heart set on a 21:9 Samsung or Dell. This price is so good why couldn't it be one of those monitors, only thing keeping me from buying is I don't have the GPU power for 4k at the moment.

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

    I am absolutely torn now because of this. This price is perfect for me, even though I was waiting for the Samsung or Dell. Not to mention I've been eyeing up the 32" 4K from Acer as well lately. I really can't decide which choice is best for me as a gaming/General use home monitor for mostly...

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

    Do you really think the VA model will be better for gaming? I'm upgrading to a 34" 21:9 from a U3011 1600p IPS panel, and the monitor will be almost solely used for gaming (wow, mobas, fps in that order). I am afraid to change from IPS to VA, but I am tired of waiting for the Dell and am...

    Anyone buy a 970 with blower-style fan (evga or pny)?

    The bestbuy one rang up as 379.99 and they wouldn't honor the shelf sticker and then promptly removed said sticker - so I didn't get it. Your bestbuy price matched a non-reference gtx970? With a different model number and everything? If thats the case I might go back and try the same thing...

    Best rear venting 970?

    Will that ship to USA? And isn't that something like $500? Was hoping for a better pricepoint. At this point I'm wondering if its worth foregoing the possible temperature issues and grabbing a strix anyway, or just bumping up to the 980. edit: Just came across this thread and according to it...

    Best rear venting 970?

    I have a positive pressure case and am looking for the best rear venting 970 to run 3440x1440 21:9. I am big on noise, and since I may need to run a sli setup due to the resolution, I'm really concerned about getting the best bang for my buck. A reference 970 would be fantastic, but because of...

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

    Which 970 Are You Buying?

    Looks like I'm going to go with a Sli 970 setup for my 34" 3440x1440. Were you referring to http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00OC2CFYG/?tag=nisa-20&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER when you mentioned the MSI OC? I'm afraid to buy EVGA, not I wanna go with the other options or wait for the 8gb. Might just deal with...

    Which 970 Are You Buying?

    Are there any good blower style or vapor chamber models? I'm running an FT-02 case which is rotated 90 degrees and the dual and tri fans aren't always the best choice.

    Which card do I want for 3440x1440 in an FT-02 Case?

    I can probably wait, but I don't think I want to go over 700ish on cards... fiance would have a fit lol. The single 970 might fit the bill for now, and maybe adding on a second later... depends on the price of 8gb.

    Which card do I want for 3440x1440 in an FT-02 Case?

    If I need more than a single 980 I'll probably go the sli 970 route.

    Which card do I want for 3440x1440 in an FT-02 Case?

    Basically two questions. Which GPU do I want to power a 21:9 3440x1440 monitor, and which model do I want to handle the 90 degree mobo rotation of the Silverstone FT-02. I ask because of the way the intake and exhaust on the cards would work in this case, do I want a blower or not etc...

    I'm torn... LG 34" 21:9 or 4k, help me choose.

    After looking at a 40" in a store, I feel like it will in fact be too large to sit on my Ikea Galant desk, and smaller than 40" I'd probably be happier with the Ultra Wide 21:9 monitors. I'm not 100% convinced on sitting in the corner of the Galant desk, so even with an arm or wall mount I would...

    I'm torn... LG 34" 21:9 or 4k, help me choose.

    Just bought a new house and free'd up some desk space by parting with my PLP setup and my Dell U3011 1600p monitor. I'm looking to upgrade but to only one monitor this time around and I pretty much have my sight set on the LG 34UM95 or LG 34UC97 curved version. Being that the monitor will not...

    4k resolution VS Ultrawide resolution

    This. Some games do not support 21:9, you posted pictures of WoW and I understand that many WoW players also play Diablo3. D3 does not natively support 21:9 so if you also play it, the LG monitor may not be for you. However, games that aren't supported still look and play great on it, you...
