That case glare aye caramba
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.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.

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.
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 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.
Yeah the state of affairs with PC monitors right now is terrible.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.
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.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.
3080 for 60hz is real dumb, sorryI'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 $700.
Again you need to read a little closer. I am at 1440p not 1080p. And again I'll be using DSR or resolution scaling within a game to actually run at a much higher resolution than that.well yeah, you'll be getting 60 more frames you won't even be able to see - You'd be totally fine on a 2070 super @ 1080p if you're happy with 60hz, even with everything cranked up - On modern titles
Take a look at this, even a 1080ti doesn't dip below 60, ON ANY GAME @ 1080p..
There is LG 38GL950G-B. 38” 4k IPS Gsync 144hz and oc to 175.Until 34-43 inch 4k IPS 144hertz+ gsync monitors come out, I ain't doin shit. I have a LG 27GL850-B 27 inch that plays games just fine and it looks really good. I just spent 500$ 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.
