Nice Setups, I wish my desk stayed half as clean as some of these are. I wish I could justify a triple monitor setup, so awesome when its mounted up and neatly assembled.

That is a Herman Miller Embody.

I personally have one at work and I love it. Definitely worth the money IMHO.

I bought a Steelcase Gesture for home but in many ways I find the Herman Miller Embody more comfortable .

Nice! Which ultrawide is that?
LG 29Wk600, got it last week when eBay was doing that %15 off, $200 total. Good price, great colors, 75hz and hdr support (crappy but it's there). Good build, perfect size for what I want, minor light bleed on one side. So far so good.

I went from 43" 4k to 32" 1440p and now back to 43" 4k. I think I will probably go back to the smaller screen as this is technically my girlfriends tv I gave her but she hasn't decided on a mount in her office. I love the large screen for gaming and certain multitasking but overall I think 32" is about my preferred max for an all around screen at the center of my displays.

Sitting close to a smaller screen with high PPI is more immersive than sitting back several feet from a large TV, IMO IMO etc. Everybody has their own idea of what looks better.

Look at a 32" 4k monitor if you can swing it, it looks really great at that size espically if you've already been driving a 4K screen and have the necessary hardware. I don't think 1440p is awful at that size, but going back will be a step down in pixel density if you got used to it on the 4k.

WASABI MANGO UHD490 REAL 4K HDMI 2.0 49" LG AH-IPS UHD 3840x2160 DP 1.2 Monitor

Buddy of mine playing on my 49in at 4k which is insanely immersive when paired with a 1080ti. Unfortunately I am looking to sell the display and downsize my entire setup, but I don't think regular folks understand it's value so we'll see.

Obviously its outrageous to play this close so I was using a small kind of tv tray for my mouse and keyboard then I'd sit a little further away. That configuration is probably as good as it gets for me until g-sync can be had at these sizes. Getting hard to keep up with all the new tech coming.

That looks massive but awesome.

I really don't understand why people use TVs as gaming monitors?! The input lag is horrendous, not to mention panel refresh rates / etc.

Some are better then others. If you do your homework you can get one with OK lag.

You will not find or afford monitors these sizes.

Because not everyone cares about having 2ms input lag. Obviously 144hz looks great but 60hz hasn't ever stopped me from getting chicken dinners in PUBG or lapping people in Forza.

I went from a 27” ASUS ROG Swift to a 40” 4K tv. At first adjusting to 60hz (and losing gsync) was difficult but after some time with the 40” 4K I don’t think I can go back. I still have the ROG Swift sitting around so every now and then I’ll plug it in and play some games just to retest the waters. There are pluses and minuses to both setups but ultimately I prefer the 4K tv.

We’re all waiting for a 40”+ 4K 144hz gsync/freesync monitor (semi-glossy for me).

Yeah G-Sync is awesome with NVidia cards but they are so much more expensive than free-sync monitors. I really don't understand why that is.

Because its Nvidia and they want more money for branded items. I bought a Freesync monitor that has a refresh rate of 144Hz but I have a 980Ti. I didn't really care to get that feature because the 144Hz is good enough.

A bit offtopic, but isn't this "good enough" only if you can keep a stable 144 fps? The lower the fps drops below the default Hz limit, the worse tearing and stutter will get, afaik, without any gsync or freesync tech. At least that's my experience with a regular 60 hz lcd: i need to keep my fps locked at either 60 or 120 fps, otherwise it's worse (except for games that i can sustain beyond 130 fps, the negative effects seem to diminish after that figure).

Right but the whole point of the sync tech is to keep vsync with the monitor on the hardware. I don't have any issues with tearing on my monitor because I can play games at 1440p with no issues. Really the sync tech is for those who are using older cards that don't sustain a high frame rate. I just never saw a real need for paying extra for the feature. I got my monitor for $230 on sale when it was originally 400.
Its a great monitor even with having to utilize the Freesync feature.
To each his own obviously. I mean there are alot of guys on here at use 4K TVs and have exceptional experiences. I'm just saying Nvidia is charging what they want because they can. I just will never pay for the g-sync feature on a monitor.

It was very difficult to find a stand alone mount for triple 40's.. esp ones that didn't include a racing seat. I had them originally mounted on individual tables (as seen in first pic) and mounts which was wobbly AF where they tilted. I didn't have much room for a big desk and 120" of screen real estate side by side pretty much crossed a 10ft room. More thinking was involved then when I first had the idea to do it. Finally found a mount that checked all the boxes with the Trakracer mount. It can handle up to 3x45's and still give me room to put a 55" table up front without legs to get in the way and I could tuck it deeper into the corner. I could have probably even got a bigger table but pretty happy with the desk space I gained. Didn't really need the 34" up top but I have a cat that gets in the way sometimes I get tired of swapping the active window.

Love the fact that you are using an oversize mousepad as well. Where did you find that mount?

Found the Trakracer mount on Amazon. the XXL mousepad is 47" x 21.5" also came from Amazon. It was the largest I could find that wasn't $50+.
The mount is impressive, I didn't realize it was actually sitting on the floor, lol. I have a humanscale triple monitor mount that I had to rig to fit on my corner desk. It uses 2 poles that are clamped to the desk.
I have the same type of mouse pad but smaller sized XL, I think.. I love it.
