Upgrading to a 34-inch monitor (May 2021)


Buenos dias!

I’ve been searching around the forums for tips on my debacle but most information is about a year old, hence me asking this question for the current times.

I got a single 24” inch monitor at the moment (BenQ ZOWIE XL2411P) and, due to space and budget, triples are off the table. So I am looking to upgrade to a 34” inch. Any format larger than that would be severely frowned upon at home due to size and price. The good thing, the size is already decided. But, with so many options available I can really use advice from the experienced among you.

I’m looking at these 3 specific monitors at the moment.

Samsung Odyssey G5:

Iiyama G-Master Red Eagle:

AOC Gaming CU34:

I rather not go over the ‘magical’ €499 mark (prices on links are GBP but mostly the same in Euros at local retailers). The need is Sim Racing for the most part (AC & ACC) but also other games (Cyberpunk 2077 mostly). Important fact: my PC is running on a Ryzen 7 3700X with an RTX 2070 Super (HDMI and Display Port). I’m assuming the 3440 x 1440 resolution should be no problem but you never know. What are factors I should take into account for such a larger resolution?

An ultrawide gracias in advance for your advice, tips and inklings chaps!
