I can understand recommending the lower priced, higher refresh rate part but I don't see how 2560x1440 is going to gain you any better vertical play experience. The 1440 is the same on both monitors, all that is changing is widened horizontal from 2560 to 3440. So isn't the vertical view space exactly the same? I know one is 16:9 and one is 21:9, but again the 9 is the same in both cases. Maybe there is an issue with the way games handled scaling their menues on the 21:9 ratio?
I think there was some confusion with an edit I did. I cleared it up now.

Yes, the vertical viewing is the same but due to the form factor, images "feel" constrained.
