Going Ultrawide

8 Apr 2018 19:23

I ordered a Dell U3417W today. A 34", Ultrawide 21:9, 3440x1440 IPS display. Notably it has no adaptive sync technology and only runs at 60 Hz.

Dell U3417W, not my picture

Now why did I do this?

Well, frankly it was kind of impulsive. I even tried to go through my web browser history to see how I got there and there is no conclusive trail.

Why did I choose this monitor, the Dell U3417W?

We'll see how it works out. I am kind of excited.

My only concern is if I ever play a game in fullscreen, and I want to watch something on the side. Can't really do that with one single screen, unless you run the game windowed (which I guess I could do since I can't use G-Sync anyway.)
