    PC VEGA64 Red Devil
    I've moved my 3900X + PowerColor VEGA64 Red Devil to my desk with the Samsung 3840x1080 49" 32:9 monitor, reason being so I can use Freesync 2. I have my monitor refresh rate set at 144Hz, though my VEGA64 can't do new games anywhere near that framerate. But older games, and Vulkan games are achieving pretty good framerate (Doom, Doom Eternal, Strange Brigade). Broke out my Topre RealForce 104U 55G + yellow PBT keycaps because it feels so great gaming and typing with it. Moved the steering wheel to hang on the side....

    Below is my Acer XR341CK 21:9 75Hz Freesync monitor, great color reproduction and pretty good for gaming as well, I have my i7 3960X + Leadtek GTX1080 Hurricane hooked up to it running Gsync (not official) at 75Hz. I use this for entertainment purposes as well, like chilling to music on the OppO HA-1 with one of my cans, or on the Philips HTL9100 soundbar which is pretty damn good for music.

    I'd use the Creative SXFI Theater wireless headphones for movies as with SXFI enabled, the sound becomes much less centered and sounds more, well, room-like (best way for me to describe it). You can see with SXFI Theater wireless dongle thingy on the right of the white coiled cable joining the two halves of my Mistel Barocco MD600 RGB keyboard (the dongle has a blue LED which is also visible)

    21:9 is best suited for watching 2.35:1 movies (you'd get those annoying black bars on top and below with 16:9 monitors/TV, but when cropped to 2.35:1 format, it fills the entire screen, no black bars anymore!

    Finally, after 2 and a half months of waiting for delivery, I got the AOC CU34G2X. One of the first things I did was to check the memory clock speed. It was running at full speed. But easy fix. I just changed the vertical blanking from the default 50 lines it comes with, to 103 lines of the LCD standard.

    What FOV do you use in games?

    5700XT/ 1070/ RX580
    The bump up last week from:
    2560x1080 (2.8MP)
    to
    3440x1440 (5.0MP)
    ...has annihilated my frame-rates.

    I was hoping to wait until end of summer or fall to update my GTX1070, but I decided I needed (wanted) a stopgap. I just ordered a 5700 XT. ( XFX RX 5700 XT Thicc III ) It seems to be 35-50% better than my 1070 in any given benchmark (at 4k). That'll do for the rest of the year.
