Default 34 inch 21:9 monitor resolution

Hi

I'm thinking of getting a 34 inch 21:9 ratio ultrawide monitor. My computer has a 4.0GHz chip, 16Gb Ram , a ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC graphics card and a 22 inch 16:10 monitor which runs nice and smooth.

I have a few questions:

1. If i got a 34 inch 21:9 monitor with a native resolution of 2560x1080, will it look ok pixel
wise?
Some say a 34 inch 21:9 screen is too large for such a resolution, that its too low and so
you can see the individual pixels.
Others say it looks good. What sort of picture quality does it produce? Is it really that bad?

2. If i got a 34 inch 21:9 monitor with a native resolution of 3440x1440, could I then run DCS
World at 2560x1080 (or thereabouts)?
I think my gtx 1050ti oc would struggle with 3440x1440 res.
Ideally I would like to buy a 3440x1440 for future proofing.
I could then get a graphics card sometime in the future that would handle that resolution.

3. In general, does it matter about monitor size when it comes to DCS World because I read
somewhere that DCS World is more concerned with viewports rather than actual
monitor size?
This led me to ask question 2 about running the game at 2560x1080 on a 3440x1440
monitor. Is this feasable, workable option?

4. Or should I just get a 2560x1080 res monitor and be happy with that?

Regards,
Milli

If you want ultrawide than dont go for 2560x1080. 34" will make it too pixely, I saw one of such monitors in store and while in most of the stuff its ok, some games look bad.

I have AOC AG352UCG which is a 3440x1440p 35" UW monitor and to power that thing in DCS even 1080Ti struggles at high settings.
My specs are as follows:
Asus 1080TI Strix OC@2 Ghz
Core i7 2600k OC@4.8 Ghz
24 GB RAM at 1600 Mhz
I play at high settings with MSAA at x4, AF at 16. Some effects are turned off such as lens, flare, heat blur, shadows are flat only. That gives me roughly 50 to 80 FPS, depending on a situation and environment in 2.1. Unfortunately this version of a game requires a lot of optimization, hopefully it will arrive eventually.
I can tell you that 1050Ti just wont do. Better wait, collect more money and buy a better GPU (or even a completely new rig if need be).

Thanks for the info Hiromachi. I will go to a shop and have a look at what a 2560x1080 looks like on a 34". Some say games look ok but general usage looks pixelated. 1080 was the new standard not too long ago for tv's etc, so maybe they're not so bad.

1080 might be satisfactory for the movies, though this days you see a lot more 4k TVs with superior to monitor ones panels. Some even consider buying a 40" TV due to image quality.

Go for 3440x1440, as you say you can always upgrade your GFX card later on. I had a 27" monitor at 1920x1080 and was never completely happy with the clarity, it always seemed a bit too blocky; my 34" ultrawide is roughly the same physical height but looks so much clearer being 1440 in the vertical.

Personally even 3440x1440p is not razor sharp, I had 27" 4k and that was something I really enjoyed in terms of picture quality. I'm looking forward to something like 38" 5,120 x 2,160p LED, with 100hz refresh and freesync/g-sync. Of course no hardware is capable of running it at this point, I'm not even sure there are connectors providing bandwidth for such amount of pixels.

But one can always dream

I have a 3440 x 1440 screen with a 1080TI

It was a massive step up from 1920 x 1200 ...... but it has GSYNC
which makes a big difference if the frame rate takes a dump

Can I run DCS World at 2560x1080 on a 3440x1440 monitor until i upgrade gfx card sometime in the future?

You can, but it wont look well. If you moved from 1920x1080 to 4k and wished to lower resolution on 4k panel it would look ok, but stepping down from 1440p to 1080p doesnt really look well.
