I am looking to get my first ultrawide and am not sure what the best option is to go with right now.

I am looking for a 1440p, >100 Hz GSYNC monitor that I plan on using mainly for gaming. I learned about the Acer X35 and Asus PG35VQ, but they are not widely available, are $2500, and come with their own flaws. The LG 38GL950G is in the same category in terms of price and availability (I am not sure if it's out yet).

I am considering the Alienware AW3418DW, Acer X34p, LG 34GK950F and LG 34GK950G. Any recommendation from these options/are there other options that I should consider?
And are the X35, PG35VQ or the LG 38GL950G worth any consideration given their cost?

What GPU do you have? If its 10th gen newer Nvidia or newer AMD I would just go Freesync as its going to save quite a bit of money and should work fine.
I will have a 2080 Ti. But don't I need an AMD gpu to use Freesync? I know some Freesync monitors are being certified as GSYNC compatible, but I am not sure how well they actually work.

From what I hear they work well amd theres quite a few of them.

Although if your budget can cover 3440x1440P/120hz/gsync then you must md as well do that.
Thanks. So would you recommend a GSYNC native monitor? I know with the LG 34GK950F, the refresh rate is slightly higher at 144Hz. I am not sure why the GSYNC ultrawides monitors are lower at 120Hz.
