I thought one of my fans was going (intermittent hissing). . it turns out it is my second monitor (1680X1050 - I know right) - now the display goes off and on (it is unplugged now)
I am considering a new monitor and looking at this one:https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824025882
I had a few questions. I do a lot of things with two monitors for work but I think it might work better (or at least the same) on an ultra wide.
I only plan on gaming at 1080 for the foreseeable future.
I have a 1060 6Gig
Am I right unassuming my card will be okay with the extra pixels of the wider display?
Am I really missing out on gsych / free sych. For the cost of monitors that have gsych I am not sure it is worth it. I don't play a tonne of FPS games etc. I might play Odyssey next year.
Has anyone experienced ultra wide and have thoughts? I often find that i feel like I am blinded on the sides while playing games. I should likely look at FOV settings.
The CON is that sometimes I will play a "second screen" game or have something up for work while playing some crappy timer/ browser game. I suppose I could keep using my primary monitor as well (not so hot ACER 1080 (says IPS . .but.. . )
Thoughts on two 9:6 vs one ultra wide? or go ultra wide and keep the second monitor. It is more about screen real estate. Current primary is 23"
I know it is a tonne of questions but if someone else has looked at this recently I would appreciate any insights. It is going to put a crimp in my productivity until I get a new monitor (I mean display. . I am aging myself)
TLDR. Ultra wide good for games / productivity? Is the monitor horrible for any reason I am missing?
Thanks for any advice.
