    Is those 40 fps give flow problems/refresh problems within the game?
    no,no problems with the witcher at 40 fps,you play in relax with controller,gsync..or remove hairworks for 15 fps more..
    PG348Q is a great monitor !!
    4k ultrawide too demanding ..
    watch the new PG27UQ

Both are the same size, and have the same resolutions. But I recently upgraded in Nov 2016, to the PG348Q, the IPS/100/3440x1440. And I'm happier with the PG348Q!

    It's much more immersive for gaming. BF1 is an amazing experience on this ultra wide monitor. I like it more so than playing BF games on my previous monitor.

    Not all games support 21:9. Some games from Blizzard won't support it due to it giving you an advantage with being able to see more on the left and right side of your screen. Overwatch does have 21:9 BUT, it changes the FOV so that you don't have a vision advantage over someone using a 2560x1440 (16:9) monitor. Though I think WOW supports 21:9. Weird, huh?

    A number of games will show their cutscens/cinematics in 16:9 but then switch to 21:9 for game play.*Not a big deal.
    **
    I was using a GTX970 for my PG278Q. That was fine for most games. When I got the PG348Q, I got a GTX1080, for I was concerned my older video card wouldn't be able to handle it without turning down the graphic settings greatly, or severe hits to my frames per second. The GTX1080 seems to be doing a great job overall with most games. *

    With the games you listed in your OP, you are going to have a more immersive gaming experience with the PG348Q.*

    If you can, try to check out a 34" 21:9 monitor at your local computer store. When I did that, it sold me on going wider.*


    I still got a month or so to decied, but so faar I am betting on the PG348Q, even thought the PG279Q is really nice too.

    If people like to show off the screen, or other experience som more it would be most welcomed!

    I have recently purchased a PG348Q - and I am still in awe of this monitor.

    I came from a 120Hz 1080p 27 Inch 16:9 and the difference in quality and immersion to media/games is immeasurable.

    Working with other monitors (whilst at work or a friends) it feels like I am using an iPad. Have gotten so used to 21:9 widescreen now.

    Out of all the parts I upgraded this upgrade, the monitor is the thing I am most happy with as it brings it all together

    Go get it, NOW. You will not be disappointed.

    That said, I did get a perfect zero dead pixel and no BLB monitor. This panel is absolutely flawless. I just want to go home from work early now and give it a hug.

    I was faced with the dilemma not long ago and went with the PG279Q.
    Two things affected my decision, primarily the size restrictions would have had me chopping up my nice solid wood hutch.
    The thing that cinched it is the ultra wide resolution is not common place. To keep perspective often the vertical dimension is getting cut.

    Would be great for a workstation monitor to have multiple windows open.

    Just my .02, either would be a great addition and are very nice monitors, just personal preference.

    I think I am betting my money on the PG348Q, simply due to the pro's and the experience I heard from people seemse to be really running its in favor. The widescreen thing seemse like in alot of ways it can be sovled by mods and other stuff.

    The PG279Q do have many appeals with its 165HZ and all that, but it also seemse to lack quaility control? - And a few other minor downsides.


    I think I am sticking with PG348Q So faar atleast. - But there is still a month or so maybe less, until I buy. So people will be welcome to post pictures, write their own experience and aswell review of the two monitors.

    Thanks for the comments and infomation given so faar, it has been a very fruitful experience!

    Here's a clip of some in game footage of BF1. It was 3440x1440@ up to 100fps at times. But using the GeForce Experience it limits capture to 60fps. I uploaded it to YouTube. If you view it on a screen that isn't 21:9, then I think it will add black bars to the top and bottom of the screen. On my PG348Q it fills the screen. But at least this can give you an idea of what it looks like during gaming.



    And here is a screenshot from EQ2

    And this is a good video on Titanfall 2 being played on 21:9 (3440x1440) - the pros, and cons. I'm not sure which 3440x1440 monitor this person is using. But the issues he brings up; pro/con does apply to gaming with this type of wide screen monitor. When I captured video for my game above, it maxed out capturing at 60fps. So I assume this person ran into that too.

    Also, this person's YT channel covers more games that can use this format to the fullest. As well as pointing out which games don't use 21:9. Like the Resident Evil 7 demo, which will play on my monitor with black on the sides, making it really a 16:9 format. I assume it will be like this in the regular game. That's not the monitor's fault. And you can probably look up all the games you want to play in 21:9, to check to see if they really do support that or not. He covers many games that do and don't.

    When I decided to go widescreen I looked at both the pg348q and the Predator. I've read they both have the same panel. So performance should be identical for both. What's different between the two are; Aesthetics, support, user interface, can you buy it local, inputs (I'm not sure if one has more than the other and is that going to really matter?), weight (the ASUS is 34.1 lbs and the Predator is 21.9 lbs (my ASUS feels very sturdy), and is it on sale.

    I found this video that might be of help comparing the two; pg348q vs Predator...
