    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    Probably best to wait just a few days for some benchmarks. The cards are already in the hands of many reviewers and benchmarks should be appearing soon. But, given what we know now, I would be very tempted to save the $300 from that lucky 2080 sale and get a 'free' 3080. Nvidia claiming 100fps+...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    From a $$$ standpoint, the 3090 is approx. twice the cost of the 3080. From a performance standpoint my only concern with the early release 3080 is the amount of memory - 10 Gb. These monitors are very close to 4K in resolution (abt 20% less demanding) and I usually look at those benchmarks to...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    With the announcement of the new RTX 3000 series, this terrific monitor will soon be able to run at its full resolution and full 160 fps in demanding AAA games. Even the cost, for the new RTX 3080, sounds reasonable based on history and promises about 50% better performance than a 2080 Ti.

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    I noticed today (Sunday 6/28) that Costco has the LG 38GN950-B in stock and selling for $1599, which is the lowest price previously seen during the early sale days. I'm sure it likely has a 'special' Costco model number, but the specs seem to be the same as the original. Also, reference some...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    I doubt the difference btwn 160 and 175 is even noticeable in terms of frame rate, though the color issue would be. So I agree about not using 175Hz and its claimed 1ms response time - which is mostly a marketing myth. Also, I don't know what programs everyone else is running at such high frame...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    For anyone able to buy one of these for "just under $1400", it makes a lot more sense and would remove any hesitation that I had, even at $1599. Dell sells a similar 38" for about that much, but it is much less full featured and only 60Hz. I would argue that LG would certainly sell many more of...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    I've been using mine regularly for a couple of months now. Previously, I switched back and forth btwn the ultrawide Alienware 34" and a normal 2560X1440 depending on the game/program. I no longer find the need or desire to switch, no matter the use. The LG makes up for the deficiencies of either...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    I'm glad I acted on the LG sale price at $1599 for the short time it was available (thru Best Buy price match). I have a similar setup to yours on articulating arms, except my 2nd monitor is a 32" 16:9. My speakers are no where near that large, though I have a 5.1 setup. Question: with your desk...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    Well, I just tried the BestBuy site and, sure enough, they will honor the price match with the LG site sale of $200 off despite it not being "in stock" at the dealers with the low price. I was mostly checking for the price match and was helpless to the power of (perceived) savings and ordered...
