What’s your budget mate? Going from a tv to a monitor are you looking to downsize or not? I’m also looking for a new pc soon and am looking at getting a QLED 4K monitor.

Something like this

https://www.samsung.com/uk/monitors/curved-cf73/LC27FG73FQUXEN/

Personally I’m probably going for a curved monitor and around 32”.

Most important factor though is getting a monitor or tv with no input lag. That will ruin any sim racing.

Yea I'm looking for something between the 27 and 32, 120 hz or 144hz. I have been on a tv since the F1 nurburgring race last year, something has been off and i could tell it just feels weird.

Also looking to get 3 monitors I need more Fov the single just isn't doing it anymore.

On the Subject of 3 monitors. Ever thought about getting a complete curved monitor to substitute the 3 montiors? Eliminates the horrible screen boarders in between. There frikking pricey though.

Nice!! Always good shopping for new parts!!


3 monitors is the way to go in my opinion if you think about budget. A single curved monitor that covers as much as 3 monitors would cost a lot of money, but if you have that in mind and think it worth just go for it:happy: .

The monitor frames I don't even notice when I'm driving.

If you have more freedom to layout the monitors in some kind of stand or over a desk and you have the space for them I would go even 3 x 32".

One 49" curved would cost around $900 and 3 x 32" = near 90" will cost you less than that depending of the brand and spec.

Now my setup is 3 x 27" and I'm very happy with it. I couldn't go bigger at the time because my rig couldn't fit.

If you want to go to the next level and try VR I think the new HP Reverb has the best quality among the current HMDs. It has the smallest pixel window among all products available.

Hahaha. Good thing I only paid 100$ for it. I bought it from my brother because he upgraded to a 70 in TV.

He also let me use a 32 inch gaming monitor I could really tell the difference from the TV, the response is amazing.

Those are all valid points but the 49 inch ultra widescreen looks really bad. I checked it out at our local bestbuy and it looked grainy and really pixelated and lots of stretching. Plus I dont think it gives you as much FOV as 3 screens.

Also I dont think any of the sims we play support VR headsets or that would be a possible option.

I have a cockpit I built myself, so mounting 3x32 monitors should be easy.

I'll look around hopefully I'll find some deals.

i use these and cannot fault them,sure you could pick 3 up cheaply,they also have very narrow edge so not much gap between them.

Damn! Those are really nice! Both you and Grant have me stuck. The price is still about the same so I might have to go with the 32" Monitors.

The best part is I forgot I have to upgrade my graphics card in the process Rolling Eyes the one I have now will definitely not work with 3 screens. I guess I will have to get that weekend time and a half pay. :aie: :yaa:
