i'm currently sitting 800 mm away from a 32" monitor, it is positioned right at the edge of the desk. The real estate of this monitor is huge. That bring it way too close to be comfortable viewing.
Your X34a has the better stand so I will be going for something like that.

The X34A also has a massive footprint. 32cm deep and 58 cm wide.
No standard desk can accommodate it and also allow you to sit at your normal distance. Still a great monitor.

It will physically fit on the desk itself and your keyboard should comfortably fit on the 20cm remaining in front of the monitor.
The problem comes at sitting distance. You will probably find that you want to sit further back than you're able to otherwise taking in such a wide screen is difficult without excessive head movement.

I've got mine sitting on a 40cm deep shelf directly behind and level with my desk. This way I'm at least 70-80cm away from the screen itself which works nicely.
It would just be unusable otherwise imo.
Some planning is required for these untrawides. Perhaps look into wall mounting which is a popular workaround.

The X34A has a footprint but it's monitor is more recessed in to that depth, if you get what I mean.

I imagine you'll likely be half the distance away from the screen as me but if that works for you that's great. Welcome to the world of ultrawide Gysnc. There's nothing better.... right now (_;)

I have the X34A. You won't beat the experience. It's amazing, no regrets from me whatsoever

Ordered this item... expected it to arrive yesterday... took day off work... waited.... waited... would you believe it... LOST in transport!
Amazon will only refund me what it costs. Looks like i will never own one of these flashy monitors. Cant justify the outlay on it full priced.
