A 1080Ti is a very strong GPU.

Going from 1440 16:9 to 1440 21:9 (if I'm following you correctly) is a jump, at ~34%. Though the 1080Ti should be OK, it would probably be good to do a little research to be clear how much the difference might be.

I hope this makes sense.

EDIT: I read your current res wrong and had to correct it smile

Edit 2...retracted my inaccurate assertion regarding 4k. Sorry for any confusion.

Whatever you go with, Lou, I'd recommend 1440 as your vertical resolution. My last monitor was 1900x1200 and I am still seeing an improvement with even what might seem like a minor jump. Also for both of you, as kksnowbear said, IPS monitors are supposed to have the most vivid colors and best view angles at the expense of some loss of ultra dark blacks. They also bottom out at 4ms response time, whereas a TN display can go down to 1ms. I have yet to notice any lag from that however, as my old monitor was I think 5 ms response or so and I never had a problem with it. I was looking at 32" curved monitors, but that will probably be for the next time I upgrade.

I appreciate all the input, guys. Definitely helps me narrow down what I should look into.

After searching forever to replace my aging 27", I found that my recommendation can't be beat for an IPS @ 1440p at that price unless you specifically want a gsync and/or curved display. It has the best reviews/warranty at that price point for a 32".

Philips Momentum 32” is 2560x1440

Great feedback and advice folks, it is much appreciated.

kksnowbear, thanks for crunching the numbers. I had done some math myself and was coming to the same conclusion about my set-up being able to handle the 1080p res, so your analysis makes me feel more confident in that conclusion.

Rick, I'd love to make the jump to 1440, but as noted above, my system just isn't going to be able to adequately keep up.

Stache, oh to have your set-up. It's still the cat's meow.

I'm leaning towards the LG 34UC89G-B 34-Inch 21:9 Curved IPS monitor with G-SYNC, which is currently available for $499 with free shipping. I have always had good success with the LG monitors, and this one has some impressive features for the price.

Have you considered taking the plunge into VR? At that price, and black Friday coming up you can get a good deal on one. Trust me when I say once you play a flight sim in VR, You'll want to store your monitor back inside its box. I mean like a full 2 hour flight in VR is amazing.

Generally, IPS monitors have better blacks than any TN monitor when comparing similar sized monitors

orby, I've tried VR on various systems a dozen times or more over the last year and I always end up with motion sickness. I'm afraid VR is not in my gaming future.

This is something I've always considered. Suggestions on brands I'll take as well. However, I will need a new monitor regardless as my old one is no more, it has ceased to be. Will still need one for the non VR games. Good to know the one you suggested is so affordable.

Samsung oddesy plus. Not the other one that is not a plus version.

You'll need to try it before you buy it because getting motion sickness from it means it's a no buy. Just like @Lou mentioned.

Lou, before I did buy my Odyssey+ I also did some demos on an Rift and Vive, only all the demo’s where standing positions and always there was something the did gives you the impression of fast moving & sharp turning. At an flysim you sit on a chair and like in WoFF BoX, you will not make that much fast turning and in a plane you do not have any notion on the speed, as the terrain is slowly passing by and your flight members stays with you.
Because WoFF/RoF can not handle real VR and IL2-FC is very bad made in VR (by that clumsy Russian design buro), I, after 20y 99% only playing WW1 went to rFactor2 & Assetto Corsa. (1920-1970 period).
In rF2 & AC,( I only play in VR) I did notice that avoiding sickness is just a matter of finding the right adjustments (game & headset). It is not complete being solved because when I drive a hill climbing rally I feel also very sick. But driving at high speed and hard braking leMans as one of the BenteyBoys in a 1932 Bentley blower or Porsche 917k or an curvy Grand Prix in a Bugatti Tank 1923, all on old circuits, its very impressive, no sickness.

BTW before buying any VR sets, skip the Asus, Lenovo, Dell, old Rift, VivePro and Pimax4k crap, its is all obsolete.
New ones to be considered can be found on websites like https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/forum/109-virtual-reality-and-vr-controllers/
Be also prepared for an expensive hardware upgrade if wanting to run on high adjustments with lots of AI. I went from an OC i7-7700k 5,1Ghz delidded, to an 9700k, still my GTX1080 needs to be upgraded to something like an RTX2080super. sigh

Looks like Rift S or Odyssey+ are perfect for my current 8700k/1080ti setup, as per that link you shared, dutch. Thanks!

Well I've just now gone ahead and ordered up the LG 34UC89G-B 34-Inch 21:9 curved IPS monitor with G-SYNC. Went via Amazon Prime and got it for $434 including tax. Should be here by the end of the week. Can't wait to try out some wide screen WOFF flying. smile2

They really are great monitors, plenty of screen without sacrificing performance. I've been very pleased with mine and I think you will be, too smile

And the price you got was better by far than what I saw recently...which itself was already much less than I paid. I went back and checked; mine was actually $650. You got it for about two-thirds what I paid!! Man, what a deal smile smile

I know, right? biggrin biggrin biggrin And - of all people - I should know that. Well, OK, I do know that. And I tell others that, all the time...

I had actually waited a while, at the time...thorough most of the year, but then it went on sale (holidays, don'tcha know...). Of course, even then, it had come down maybe $75. Nothing like the deal Lou got, though.

I'm interested in seeing which monitors take a price drop over the next couple of weeks. At least one of them should go down a little bit.
