My System Specs

Default Anyone have any experience with LG UltraWide monitors?

Hey folks simple question

There's an LG 29UM65-P on sale which is a 29 inch, 29:1 aspect ratio, 2560x1080 resolution. I was wondering if anyone has even seen one in action and if so would you recommend them? I'm doing some multi-tasking and so far my simple 1920x1080p monitor just isn't going to cut it anymore. I also do gaming so of course the picture quality has to be there as well ;)

Thanks in advance.

From what I've heard, they are a PITA for gaming... your results will vary and not be ideal in most games. I'd vote skip it for using with gaming.

After looking at the LG site for a detailed specs they're two problems I see with the 34" version (for me anyway). First being the GPU, my 670 cannot support a resolution that big :P second... Thunderbolt 2.0 lord all mighty the Intel premium technology that's going to cost another pretty penny to either get a mobo with one or the PCI-E card.

EDIT: Nvm to stupid to read that it has HDMI ports as well lol, although I'm guessing it uses the latest version.

Yeah might need lil more power then a 670 but it does have Display port input. Can't wait to take advantage of that.
