Whats the difference between the 65 and 95?

Edit oh 95 is 1440p

Im getting a 780 for my build. Wouldnt the 65 be better for my single gtx 780

34UM65 is a 2560x1080 21:9, 34UM95 is 3440x1440 21:9.

Well, a single 780 will certainly have an easier time at 2560x1080. I have two 780s and can max most games with AA turned down/off at 3440x1440.

I don't want to push you over the edge, because if you get the 95 you're gonna want another GPU at some point. Maybe you have that coin, but that's not my call to make.

Even the 34UM65 is going to be a big, immersive picture and will definitely be nice for productivity too. One thing about 21:9 that is highly underrated is how much better it is for multitasking.

The 95 is def out of my range.

Do u know if the 34um65 is a big upgrade from the 29um65?

I bought a E2350V a few years ago, was great then and still holds up now. Never had any issues with it. Those are more high end but I'll personally vouch for LG as a brand.

It's just a bigger screen so far as I know, 34" vs 29". Nicer yes, though also lower DPI.

Hmm for lite editing, movies, and gaming would the 34 be better?

Same resolution so functionally they're identical. Size would really boil down to how close you sit and how much you enjoy completely filling your field of view.

Given that the 95 is the same screen size, I think I can fairly say that at a fairly close viewing distance, parts of the monitor will actually be in peripheral vision. Which is fine, actually, at least IMO. For gaming I don't think there's any equal to it, bezel-free ultrawide is awesome and even games like Civ get tons more map space.

If you're on a budget I'd honestly say the 29" is a better deal all around, $200 for the extra screen size but no extra resolution is a diagonal upgrade in all honesty since you do lessen DPI. 34" is really damn big in an ultrawide, I kind of feel like it's better suited to the 3440x1440 resolution.

4 feet away from the monitor.
The 34 is about $500 so that fits my budget.
The reason im going for a 21:9 is to mulitask open windows, i would think the 34 would have bigger windows than the 29.

What does DPi do?
If its shapness, i dnt think id notice the difference at 4ft.

Not that i wouldnt want the 1440, but the gtx 780 is alrdy $400. How much would i have to shell out to get the right gpu for the 34um95?

I feel like the 34um65 would be perfect for my multitasking, widescreen movies, editing, and gaming but youre saying its not a good deal.
