Hello, I just upgraded my PC and now have a Ryzen 9 3900x cpu, 32gb 3600 ram, RTX 2070 super gpu.
I am currently using a 32" 4k 60hz monitor.
I really want to upgrade this monitor to take advantage of the higher FPS this card can dish out.
I know that this will not be able to do ultra 4k 100+ fps, so I am looking for the following:

32"+
<4ms response time
120-165hz
2560x1440 OR 3440x 1440 resolution - Would 3440 work well with this card? Is it worth the extra money?
Gsync
Curved

I'd prefer to spend around $800 if possible but I'm really only seeing $1000+
Here are the 2 I found so far:
LG 34" IPS $1000: https://www.amazon.com/LG-34GN850-B-Inch-UltraGear-Compatibility/dp/B086XLLG28/?th=1
Acer 32" VA $1050: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BDQNDKY?tag=pcpapi-20&linkCode=ogi&th=1

Looks like the 27" with these specs are half the price. I'm not sure I could go from a 32" down to a 27" unless the price isn't worth it.
Do these types of monitors ever go on sale? Blackfriday?

MSI Optix MPG341CQR?

To be quite frank with you, the 34GN850 (Hardware Unboxed review) is quite an amazing panel, though.

Looking through a couple of games(Forza 4 90-120 FPS, 40-60 FPS Red Dead Redemption, RB6S 65-90 FPS) , you're looking 70-80+ FPS on the wider setup.
Of course, depending on the title you may see higher(or lower) FPS in some games.

If you want higher FPS you may want to stick with 2560x1440p, also depending on how willing you are as to play with lower settings, which sorta defeats the purpose of nice wide high resolution monitor, in my opinion.
