"2560x1080" ah. So it's the same DPI as those 1920x1080 27" monitors at ~80, no thanks, I'd rather go for ~110.

But then that also entails spending mega bucks on a PC to run at those resolutions (if you're gaming) - this is coming from somebody sat in front of a £1000 Acer X34... an impulse monitor upgrade that ending up with me having to upgrade the entire rig!

Not necessarily. You can run a game at a lower resolution. If you've got a 3440x1440 screen you can game at 2560x1080 full screen and still have the higher resolution for desktop use and for when you upgrade your gpu down the line. Sure you'll have some interpolation but overall its a much better than using a lower resolution panel imo.

this is basically a wider 1080p screen, LG do a similar screen for a lot less than this. cold

Thanks for the link :)

working ATM, wouldn't really recommend any screen like this for near £400, it's 1080p 60hz!! save your money people and get a 27" 144hz freesync

here's a 29" LG for £269, similar but cheaper.

Playing at non-native resolutions is an option and always was, heck people are fine with games consoles running at lower than 1080p then upscaling. I have a 2560x1440 monitor and I sometimes run at 1920x1080, or even 1280x720 for things like the binding of isaac.

I just can't see the logic in spending over £600 on a monitor and then putting up with downscaled resolutions is all. I remember trying to downscale on my old 27" 1440 in The Witcher 3 and it was horribly blurry and just didn't look "right".

And you can't really compare people who buy top end PC monitors with console gamers... they are total opposite on the expectations scale X) Plus console gamers generally play much further away on TV's so the resolution isn't so noticeable.

Any ways. I agree with what others have said, 1080 is too low a resolution for a 34" ultrawide, but then some people are on budgets and therefor won't mind the sacrifice if it means saving potentially spending another £800 quid or so (to upgrade to a 1440p 34" and a GTX 1080). In fact there was a survey on an ultrawide subreddit this week and in the results more people had a 1080p + 34" setup than any other...

Good thing about buying a better monitor however, is that graphics cards, and computing power gets significantly faster year on year, meaning that £600 you blew on a monitor that you could not use at it's best now becomes feasible 18 months down the line. Try adding extra resolution to the £400 monitor you already bought and see how much success you have.

That being said, I question anyone buying a 34" 21:9 for anything other than gaming, so it is a difficult position. :)

3440x1440 monitor is an additional £150 over this one.
You don't need a 1080 to drive it. A GTX 980ti/1070 will do fine and if you're on a budget you can pick up a 2nd hand 980ti for under £280.

I'd imagine that if you're a gamer and spending £390 on a monitor you're going to have a decent GPU anyway. If not then reevaluate your budget/situation and perhaps wait until you've saved a little longer.
I just feel 2560x1080 will leave you with regrets.
