That montior with a 3700x setup and a 3070 when it becomes available.

Very excited.

I went from 1080p 60 to 1080p 144hz to 1440p 144hz within 1 year of experiencing high refresh rate. Once you go 144hz + you wont ever go back. I can wait for 4K120 . That’ll probably be 2 more generations of videocards of waiting for me. I’d like to max out 1440p 144hz before I move on to higher pixel density display.

I will be driving 3 4k screens for my flight sim rig I recently built, hoping I can get an order in for a 3090 once they are available.

That case glare aye caramba

I bought the LG 38GL950G-B 38 Inch UltraGear Nano IPS 1ms Curved Gaming Monitor with 144HZ Refresh Rate and NVIDIA G-SYNC, Black in anticipation of getting a 3080 (hopefully Ti) from EVGA with an AIO. The monitor is a remarkable upgrade from what I had been using, whilst being ridiculously over priced.. but hey.. gaming! The monitor seems a bit buggy to me, but I'm new with it so maybe some user error going on. I debated going 4k, but I like having way more frames than are really necessary, and I'm addicted to 21:9.
I used to LOVE 1920x1200 and 2560x1600 before 16:10 went the way of the dinosaurs. 16:10, we knew thye well. vertical real estate is too neglected.

Prolly gonna keep my 144hz 1440p on the desktop and drop a 48cx next to it for 4k action depending on how the 3080 is when i get my hands on it.

55" LG OLED C9 for 4K, 120FPS, HDR, 4:4:4, 10~12 bit, G-Sync goodness. Getting 1 or 2 RTX 3090's after benchmarks comes out to see if I need to splurge for a 2nd GPU or not.

I went through that same cycle of monitor upgrades, but being old, I have to say that getting my first 21" CRT was crazy fun. I have a pile of monitors in my garage that I need to clean-up and donate to charity. I have one spare GPU in the event of an emergency. The rest of them were donated to my less fortunate gaming friends. One of them is going to get gifted soon..

3090 mated to a pair of 1440p 144hz display. I know it’s overkill but that just means I won’t need an upgrade for a long while. Once I get a new desk I may buy a 1440p ultra wide for my primary flanked by my two existing displays. Should make for a good FS2020 setup.

Dell is putting 16:10 back in the new XPS laptops, and the 38" 21:10 panels have the same 'height' ratio, more or less, with 1600 verticle pixels.

I'm still flipping a coin on one of those 38" IPS panels versus the 48" LG OLED.

At the moment, a Veiwsonic 27" 2560x1440 144Hz Gsync display. I love me some high FPS and my 1080Ti just can't push everything up there. It usually can hold 60ish+, but I'd really like it to be pushing everything well above 100. I'm just addicted to high framerates.

If it ends up being as powerful as I hope/they claim then I have my eye on an ultrawide.

My ancient Dell U3011 still looks good at 2560x1600 60Hz.

Maybe next year will get something with higher refresh rate, but for now I have an excuse for sucking in Overwatch :)

Just bought the LG CX 48. I wanted to like the LG 38” 144 Hz ultrawides because of the more reasonable size for a desk top but couldn’t get over the massive picture quality upgrade at the same price point.

Using 2x Dell 32in s3220dgf Curved 1440p 165hz. I got a Watercooled 2080 Ti now so waiting for reviews before knowing if i am going to get a 3080 or 3090. Leaning more towards a 3090 and keeping my 2080 Ti as backup.

Yeah the state of affairs with PC monitors right now is terrible.

High priced LCDs with slow response times and poor IQ just look ridiculous next to the reasonably priced 120Hz VRR OLED TVs available now.

Your water cooled card is 10%-15% already over a 2080Ti FE, If the 3080 is 25% faster than a 2080Ti FE it won't be that much faster than what you already have. 3090 seems more of a real upgrade in my opinion. Of course you will probably water cool your 3080 but don't see that much of a big improvement.

I'm planning on getting a 3080 and at the moment I'm only using a 60 hz 1440p monitor. The 3080 will pretty much be bananas overkill for most games on that setup but I want the headroom there so I can really crank the settings including ray tracing in the games that offer it. Plus I can use DSR or in-game resolution scaling to effectively run higher resolutions and give the 3080 a workout.

The 3070 just doesn't make sense for me because for $200 more the 3080 is offering so much more performance. I mean for 40% more money you're getting almost 50% more cores, tmus, and rops. And you're getting 70% more bandwidth and an extra 2 gigs of vram. The 3070 really should be priced at $450 instead of $500 when you look at what the 3080 gives you for $700.

Picking up a 3090 so either the LG CX48 or any other good HDMI 2.1 display in the 43-48” size range.

Yeah I'm sure you're real sorry about that. :rolleyes:

Maybe actually read a little bit closer as I'll easily be able to push the 3080 in demanding games at the settings I will be using.

well yeah, you'll be getting 60 more frames you won't even be able to see - You'd be totally fine on a 2070 super @ 1080p if you're happy with 60hz, even with everything cranked up - On modern titles

Take a look at this, even a 1080ti doesn't dip below 60, ON ANY GAME @ 1080p..

Again you need to read a little closer. I am at 1440p not 1080p. And again I'll be using DSR or resolution scaling within a game to actually run at a much higher resolution than that.

Until 34-43 inch 4k IPS 144hertz+ gsync monitors come out, I ain't doin shit. I have a LG 27GL850-B 27 inch that plays games just fine and it looks really good. I just spent 500$ on it.

I really like 34 inch plus displays. Unfortunately nothing is out there right now for 4k and high refresh rate. So I'll use this for a year and see what comes out. Today, there is nothing compelling to get. Other than waiting outside Microcenter on the 17th. Hope I snag a 3080. We'll see.
There is LG 38GL950G-B. 38” 4k IPS Gsync 144hz and oc to 175.
