You can use this as a guide:

Anything with a silver or gold in EF/S or UWS should be fine.

I used to use customwide resolutions on regular widescreen monitors in the past. A curved ultrawide with 120hz would be neat.

1440p @ 120hz > ultrawide

Framerate probably rules over resolution, but IPS beats TN (being hallmarks of their respective characteristics). I've never compared a glossy TN panel before, so maybe that's slightly more impressive.

There's no denying how beautiful a decent ips high res monitor looks, but, ever since I went 120hz with LightBoost I've been absolutely hooked.

I'll even lower the graphics settings on games I can max at 60fps just to enjoy the higher framerate and practically zero screen tearing.

Nothing beats 3440:1440

NOTHING

At least not until 4k 120hz versions come out

This. I got my 2560x1080 like a month before LG's 3440x1440 monitor came out and i was a bit sour about it thinking that i could've saved up my monies instead. But in the end im still very satisfied with my Asus ultrawide, i have my old 1080p monitor set up as a second screen, so i can watch videos while playing in ultrawide :D

don't you have to get 144 frames per sec to enjoy the benefits of a 144 hz monitor?

resolution first, then refresh rate (60 is fine for me)

ultrawide isn't even in the consideration.

it also must not be gsync compatible.

Refresh rate over resolution anyday.

I don't really need anything over 1080p since I'm not a graphics whore really.
And I really dislike ultrawide.

1440p by far. Why on Earth would anyone be choosing 144 Hz over it? The increased refresh rate is nicer, but the difference between 1080 and 1440 is far larger than the difference between 120hz and 144hz.

More FPS is almost always better, but there is a point where it doesn't matter that much to me. 60fps is completely acceptable, and 120 fps is fantastic. Anything more than that barely makes a difference for me, where as the vastly increased resolution is much more noticeable. Most of the 1440p monitors can be overclocked to 110hz or more without too much trouble, and even 60hz is better than a 120 hz 1080p monitor in my opinion

Another happy 34UM95 owner here.

21:9 doesn't really have compatability issues. Very rarely do games require pillarboxing, the only one I can remember recently having to do that was Hitman Contracts, which is not only old, it was made for PS2.

Most games made for PC first work flawlessly with large formats.
