My wife and I have recently purchased a new house and I plan on making a gaming room/office and going all out with the accent lighting, etc. My build is about 3.5 years old at this point so I am either looking at doing some upgrades or a new build. I have been using a now old Samsung 4K VA monitor under my current setup and this is one area that I want to do it right this time around. I haven’t decided which new graphics card I will get yet, likely a RTX 2080 or RTX 2080 TI (seems like Newegg has the EVGA black for 1,069 right now) but want to get a top notch display.
I am mainly trying to decide between either an ultrawide 3440x1440 120hz display (either X34P or AW3418hw) or a 4K 144hz (XB273K). I hear people rave about the ultrawides which is why I really want to try it but my main concern is that these are older displays than the new 4K 144hz. Nothing is future proof but I ultimately want to get the longest life out of it and there doesn’t seem to be much solid news on 3440x1440 165hz just yet.
