    The disappointment...

    2560 x 1080 is piss poor for gaming, or at least if you take your gaming seriously.
    The only Ultra Wide resolution a "Real" gamer should be interested in is 3440x1440.

    2560x1080 on a 29"/34" monitor is terrible....

    It's still decent on a 25"monitor but not on the larger ones.

    Also nothing looks better than 4K gaming and we're now in a spot where you can play 4K on a single card, even though the single card has to be a minimum of a GTX1080 or a Titan XP.

    I really want a 34" ultrawide. It has to be 3440x1440 though. The one I want:

    Does it make coffee? At that price it'd better make coffee. And not the cheap-ass Frisco variety either.
    One day, I'll grow up and become responsible.
    Probably not today.

    Yep that's the thing that keeps it out of reach. One day though
