Thank you for the reply! I have just a basic 1080p asus monitor nothing fancy! If i sometime had a chance to change my grafcard the monitor would be following as well! I am going to chose the b, option but with my "now" shitty card! (its not shitty actually prev. 4 years before this was the best for me)
Def due for a monitor upgrade!
With the 1080p monitor then yeah just wait with the 970 and lower some settings if you have to.
Regarding monitor, i always suggest people consider large 16:9 1440p, especially if using pc for other work. (video, office, everything will be better).
21:9 has a hefty $ premium and regardless for multi use i find it lacks height. Most content is made for 16:9.
Unfortunately theres a fad to curve every monitor these days. 16:9 should not be curved! only ultrawides.
For only $314 on amazon (you may find cheaper) the samsung S32d850 is available. Its business class, excellent colour, viewing angles, no bleeding, top notch blacks as its VA, without the glow and extreme lack of contrast that IPS has.
The only problem? Its 60hz. There are no decent high refresh 1440p 32" 16:9 non curved VA monitors available. Regardless of price. Also LG OLED is 48" - too big, and very pricey.
Many aren't fine with 60hz. Many are. If youre happy i strongly suggest it for an awesome, excellent quality screen for a great price.
As said, there are 0 options for me to upgrade. Price no object. As yet , im fine with 60hz.
Overall more screen area with 16:9, and see how much less screen area on a 21:9 with 16:9 content? massive difference.
All i see when i look at 21:9 is 'Why is the top half of the screen missing?' 2:1 ratio monitors should exist , both width and the height. Especially given that RED cameras & other digis film natively in 2:1 (they crop afterwards for alternative ratios), and that more and more releases are in 2:1. Its the perfect ratio.
