Monitor recommendations. What's good?

Pages

I'm kind of looking for one that does Freesync. I've got an AMD card now, and while there's a good chance I'll be getting a 3070 next, I hate the idea of a long-term component like a monitor having a feature that relies on an Nvidia graphics card.

FreeSync has less stringent requirements than G-Sync, from what I've read.

The LG monitor I linked is FreeSync, per the manufacturer, and is also G-Sync compatible with 10xx or greater Nvidia cards. I'm currently using it with an Nvidia 2080 though, so I can't personally confirm that it indeed works with FreeSync.

I finally made a call, and wound up going with this Gigabyte 34" ultrawide. I was about to order the Viotek one I linked earlier, but after re-reading the Tom's Hardware reviews of both that and the 34" AOC, it seemed like they were pretty close, but the AOC required almost no calibration out of the box, while the Viotek did. I know me, so that plus the USB ports got me leaning toward the AOC. Unfortunately, that monitor is apparently in short supply, and reseller markup has it $150 more than the Viotek.

Then an ultrawide subreddit pointed me to that Gigabyte, which had just released. On paper, the specs apparently beat out the Viotek, and the panel is the same one the AOC uses. Newegg was sold out, but was taking backorders for $400. I decided that Gigabyte is more of a known quantity than Viotek, so I put in the order.

Now I just need to wait for AMD graphics card news so I can figure out what I'm doing on the hardware front.

So on an impulse and to use as a multiple but all in one work monitor set up I bought this monster:

How many games support that wide screen aspect and will it be hard to set up?
