PC Monitor

  1. Hello,

    I just bought a Titan X GTX GPU for better performance, waw, big difference.
    However i still have a rather old 24 inch monitor.
    I cannot setup three monitors, but i could update to a curved 34 inch monitor like this one

    http://www.techspot.com/news/59229-lg-34uc97-ultrawide-curved-monitor.html

    Do you guys think a single GPU is enough for this screen?

    Thanks

    Piet
     
  2. I'd say the Titan X GPU can handle that screen's resolution easily.

    I seem to remember reading here that @William Wester has a GTX 970 or 980 and an ultrawide screen. He might be able to advise you.

    Should drive that monitor just fine, I'm using a GTX980 with the LG 34UM95 (3440x1440).
     
  4. you have a decent fps, or do you have to dial settings down? currently everything on ultra here

    Most on Ultra, a couple I turn down to maintain 60FPS in rain/night

  7. My first racing simulation experience was on a curved screen..... Grand Prix in Cinerama in 1966!
     
  8. Please make a screen shot of the cockpit view , I want to live to estimate how much space the cockpit covers the resolution of the monitor .

    This monitor is comparable to the cost of the triple screen . What prompted you to make this decision instead of a triple screen ?

    Primarily because I like eye candy, my sims look soooooo good with the graphical settings at max (or very close) - GTX980. And night and weather racing takes even more GPU power, at triple screen resolution I just didn't like turning down the graphic options. The UltraWide also doesn't take up as much room (obviously). I use the extra room for monitoring - I use a 27" screen to the side of the UltraWide for either some type of monitoring software (pCARS Profiler, MSI Afterburner, EVGA PrecisonX, etc.) or other standard applications (browser, etc.), and a 10" Android tablet for DashMeterPro and a 8" iPad as an electronic button box using Roccat Power-Grid. Lots of "suff" to contend for desk/work space.
    In addition, the 3440x1440 resolution works good for most everything else as my main monitor.
    Its not a "replacement" for triples, but much better than an HD resolution monitor.

  12. How is game support for 21:9 ratio though? I've read a lot of games still don't support that ratio. That's the only thing holding me back for those ultra-wide monitors

    I was also concerned as I had heard of some issues but I haven't run into any problems. DiRT Rally, rFactor 2, R3E, Project CARS, SCE, AC, and even Race07 ran fine from day one, no tweaking required. I did have problems running GTR2 and GTL but I hadn't run those in ages so I don't know if it's the new display or something else.
     
  14. Single TX with triple is working similar to my old SLi 780Ti setup, so medium+car high ar.90-100 fps on 3xFHD. However i strongly advice looking for sth with higher res (less problems with AA) and g-sync - which is wonderfu, ZERO tearing and amazing flow on 144Hz.

    Here is my first ride with triple 1440p powered by Titan X SLI.
