    Hello,

    first, sorry for my bad english. I am from Germany.

    I bought the Acer x34 with Gsync yesterday.

    It is really a fun Monitor. But i have a problem.

    i knew that some games do not support 21:9.

    Black Ops 3 or for example looks very stretched. So i managed it in Nvidia Driver to run the lower resolution 2560x1440 with black bars on both sides.

    This looks now like my Asus pg278q before.

    But there is a problem. It looks a little bit stretched up and down. Enemies and my weapon are looking thinner then they should be.

    In Far Cry Primal i set the resolution to 2560x1440, too.
    Because i like to have some more frames in this game. And there is the same problem. The Minimap in game for example isn´t round. It looks more like an egg.

    I really dont know what the problem is. Shouldn´t the monitor scale correctly in this resolution with black bars on the side?!

    I hope someone can understand my problem and is going to answer me. I am really in love with this x34 but if i can´t fix the resolution scaling, i will send it back.

    Thank you for your help in advance.

    Many greetings

    Hi are you playing any other games on with your monitor?
    You have a similar set up to me atleast GPU wise. I'm thinking about the monitor you have or the new Asus 34 inch but I'm not sure its worth upgrading the monitor just yet with a single GPU or until the next GTX Ti is released.

    I like playing my games at max settings.

    Stojo, have you tried to go into the NVCP and changing the scaling option? Give that a try and see if it makes any difference for you.
