So with black friday and holiday sales coming up, I'm about ready to pull the trigger on a new monitor if I can find a good deal. I had been leaning toward the ASUS PG348Q or its Acer twin, but the cost is hard to swallow, when there seem to be similar (giant WQHD IPS >60Hz) panels for much less if I switch over to AMD. I need a GPU upgrade no matter what, but I'd been resisting out of a combination of residual company loyalty, and the nonexistence of a good competitor for the GTX 1070 that can be expected to drive 3440x1440 above 60Hz.
Anyone have experience with this one?
As far as I can see, it ticks all of my boxes, and compared to the ASUS it only gives up 25Hz for a $500 savings.
There's also this one, which also sacrifices the ultrawide, but knocks the price down to only $300 with an upcoming coupon:
Getting either, I could probably limp along with my existing GTX 670 for a while until hopefully AMD gets their new higher-end card out, but who knows when that will be. Anything else pop up recently that would be worth considering?
