The resolution is misquoted; As stated in the included image, it's 3440x1440 (21.5:9 aspect ratio exact).

(3840x1440 would be 24:9. 3840-width ultrawide displays of this AR class use 1600 pixel height instead, for 21.6:9.)

Yep. And besides, who ever heard of 3840x1440?

Haha. Actually though, this is 3440x1440p, so a true ultrawide. Or UWQHD. Over a million pixels more than 2K/QHD/1440p. I do feel like the GPUs in the $350-400 range should easily be able to drive ultrawides this generation, which is nice.

That ticks pretty much all the boxes I've been looking for in an Ultrawide. Aside from the price. lol Probably will be about $1500 USD it looks like.
 
Oh no. You'd need a 3070 to get close, and likely a 3080 to hit that in most games I suppose. But, it would almost certainly be >60fps at High in almost every game, I think (IE a GPU from $350-400).
That's a bit away from this monitors max 200fps capabilities. You'd be better off spending over a $1000 less and get a different monitor if you're looking at ~60fps. There's a few ~120hz 3440x1400p monitors available for far less money, albeit lower specs.

Oh, wait. I didn't realize this was 200hz - I thought this was 120-144hz. As you said, if someone is planning on getting one of those cards, they would be better off with a 120hz ultrawide rather than 60hz (if that's within their budget), especially because a more premium monitor would have better overall image quality, FALD, etc.

Framerate is still low in 4K and not competitive in online gaming, especially FPS games. With a powerful enough graphics card, you can hit constant 200Hz or close to it in current games. You can't do that in 4K.

I play plenty online games, and I would be perfectly happy with around 100Hz+, 120 or 144 would be awesome, but pass 120ish it doesn't make any visibke difference to me.

As far as super-pooper-scooper pro gaming goes, I'm a hobbyist and don't play video games for a living, so not applicable.

You want every advantage you can get in Multiplayer games. Being locked @ 200 FPS in older games is epic. I won't go any lower than that from now on. You can see a smoothness difference in non competive games as well. Monitor is 100% worth it if you have disposable income for it.
