    Howdy great peeps,

    I suffer from visual snow, which means that I see a great amount of static (swirling dots) in my vision.
    This is the reason why I play games on usually (very) low brightness.

    I have a 23 inch crap monitor at the moment and I really need something bigger so I can see more,
    thus I am going to purchase a 34 inch 3440x1440 monitor, but I am not certain which display type..

    VA is apparently better at contrast than IPS, but does this mean it's better for me because I play at low brightness? Or is it the other way around? I'm not sure, I researched quite a bit but I can't find a definitive answer, sadly.

    Any help would be REALLY appreciated!

    Cheers,
    Mike

    va is capable to make more shades of very bright white and dark visible, you gotta know it that's good.

    do you have a return policy, guess you'll just have to try it or go into a store.
