    Even a 27" 1080p looks awful.

    1080p is not hard to run. Now if you have 1440p monitor then your screwed.

    You seem to be one of those 5% 1440p users on steam. :p

    Anyone who decided to upgrade to 1440p+ is in dire straits right now if they were hoping to match it with a new GPU that can handle it. I can see large, fast, 1080p monitors as still having a market.

    I upgraded to 3440x1440 last year and it annihilated my framerates. So I bought a 5700XT on sale (remember sales?), just before the craze hit. I planned to use my 5700XT as a stopgap until a 3080 released, but now? Maybe I'll get a 4080 or 5070 instead.

    There's no way I could look at a 32" 1080p screen, must look like 720p does on a normal size, but some people may not mind the pixels.

    Way too big curvature for that aspect ratio...

    I imagine the dot pitch on this thing must be horrible. I have an associate who bought himself a 32" 1080P Dell for ~$220 & change, and he wanted me to look at it and tell him what I thought. I haven't seen so much space between such large pixels since the 90's. Closest analogy would be a screen door. It was rather shocking, actually. Naturally I told him what a great deal it was and that if he was happy then that's what counts! He was beaming. "One man's treasure is another man's trash" was literally true in this instance.
