    Does anyone here have one of these? I'm considering buying and wondered if anyone could give any tips on what's hot or not.

    Yeah curved (1800R) and no lotto win I'm afraid. I'm just reinvesting money from my old PS Vita collection that I've sold/am still selling.

    I'm not sold on them. We've got 1at work and it is just overkill for business needs. But for gaming, about the only thing it would be usable for would be racing. Most games would struggle to run on that res. But they do look pretty

    I don't think running them would be too tough, especially if I got the 1080p ultrawide instead of the 1440p. Shouldn't be hard to max that out. Also you can run games in their natural resolution and blank out the rest of the screen if you needed to. That's pretty much all my rig is for though anyway. I play games in the media room, I stream games to my shield TV on the big screen.
