Hey /g/, simple question of preference but do you prefer a single large monitor or multiple displays & why?
>>
>>52329958
multiple displays. a single superwide monitor is the fedora of monitors.
>>
ultrawide for play, multiples for work
>>
OP here, I am on the look out for a new monitor, currently I have one 27inch primary display 1920x1080 and a secondary 24inch 1080 monitor. I mainly use two for animation, reference and the graph editor on my secondary. Then I game on just the primary.

I am looking into either an ultra wide or a single curved display. Resolution & refresh rate are not my primary concern as I am looking for productivity over gaming, but something with decent gaming potential would also be nice.

I am just curious what people prefer, in both productivity and gaming.
>>
>>52329966

Is this a meme opinion or the general consensus? I know curved seems to be considered a "fad" like 3D. I think my issue with multiple monitors is because of the kind of work I do I have to really twist my head to make sure I am looking at reference dead on rather than using my peripheral vision. On one ultra wide it would be a much smaller action to ease neck strain. That and the graph editor could span the entire bottom section of the monitor and have the information I need right there without having to shift my focus about.

Multiple

I have a 40" 4k and 2 20" 1080p

Only gaymers do 1 monitor
>>
>>52330125

Hmm maybe having both setups would be a compromise. I do like my multi monitor set up, just fancy a change in honesty, hell maybe adding another 24inch to make a 3 monitor set up would be a good move forward for productivity. Keep my gaming as is.

Ultrawide + 1080p in portrait mode is based.
>>
I have an ultrawide and a smaller 16:9 next to it. The ultrawide is pretty amazing, especially for games. Getting part of your peripheral vision in the game really helps immersion.
>>
>>52329958
Went from a dual monitor to single monitor setup after using i3 for a year. Have a look at tiling wms before buying new monitors
>>
Single large monitor or an even number of multiple monitors. Having 2 or 4 monitors is shit, you need to have one in the middle.
>>
>>52330249

Productivity wise the graph editor works much better landscape but that does look very nice, I get one ultra wide is more aimed at gaming but due to the landscape nature of the graph editor having it span the entire bottom of the monitor would be super handy. Could maybe have the best of both, rid myself of of the 24inch, use one ultra wide plus 27" as a secondary. That way I get the best of both.
>>
How is game compatibility in regards to 3440x1440 monitors?

I would imagine every decent port made in the last five years have native support for it.
>>
I am having a 21:9 3440x1440 and i damn love it. Games are just amazing (not PVP games..).

Its a productive machine.

As opposed to supporting one of those billionaires directly and handing him the White House?
And who's the retard again?'
Trump's not even a real Republican, he's a Democrat supporter/financier who is playing America for a fool to support his own egotistical campaign. It doesn't take a major in psychology to know that Trump is doing this for himself and no one else.

that shares every right wing fundamental idea ever, right?


>And who's the retard again?'
You are for supporting people who are controlled by other people.

Trump doesn't need billionaires to fund him and doesn't have to hide anything.


Just accept it, you're an ignorant shitbag that's the reason why the US is such a shithole right now.

>>52330119
You can have an ultrawide without curve.

I have the one in the following link and it's the best thing I've purchased in years. Resolution is 3440x1440.

>>52329992
This. Except I use my ultrawide alongside a 27" monitor.

>>52330028
Get an ultrawide, but you should still use one of your monitors as a secondary.
>>
>>52332716
>not PVP games
This, sadly.

I have a strong urge to swap over to my 24" 1080p screen when I play things like CS:GO or LoL, but for anything else, it's worth the extra visual coverage. There's definitely a big wow-factor when you see that high-texture FPS with a big FOV, or the MMO where you can dump the UI components off to the side and appreciate the visuals.

How ironic, this is coming from a literal gentile who thinks he deserves to rule his own people. Why aren't you in politics then? Why rely on an obvious plant to speak for your hateful, ignorant rhetoric?

Because he is one of the "billionaires" you keep talking about you stupid piece of shit.

Two 1440p 25".

Depends tbqh, multiple monitors is good for having a second screen that is displaying something else while gaming, but ultrawide gaming is awesome in games where it's supported.
>>
>>52335072
This goy is dumber than I thought.
>>
>>52335160
Yes you are.
>>
>>52335139
Why not have multiple ultrawides? Linus does it.
>>
>>52329958
40" UHD is the current patrician choice, unless you're a professional graphics artist, in which case a 27" 5k is probably better.
>>
>>52330119
>Is this a meme opinion
what does this even mean?

you know asking a question like this announces to the world that you're a retarded faggot, right?
>>

Linus just doesn't have better options for looking at all his BBC images in panorama form, m8.
>>
>>52332532
Sometimes it is good for example GTA5, LOL, most ea games and alot of racing games. It sucks for COD, fallout 4 and far cry 4 because it doesnt scale right if you dont use fixes and stuff there also isnt always a fix for it

3x 1080p or 1440p Monitors... Ultrawide's are only good for movies (lol) because they run 21:9 and get rid of the shitty black "cinematic" bars the niggers put in.

If you get some with no bezels or minuscule, it's also like you have an ultrawide anyways.
>>
>>52334950
Couldin't you just play in 16:9 resolution and get the same effect? Or is it just too different feeling with black bars?
