Hello everyone,I just finished building my new PC and now choosing monitor is a very big concern. My build is:
Gigabyte Z390 Ultra
RTX 2080 Asus ROG OC
9700k + be quiet Dark Rock Pro 4
16GB DDR4 G.Skill 3200
Samsung 970 Evo + 4TB HDD
Corsair RM850x (2018 edition) + be quiet silent base 800
I play on full HD 60hz and now I want to try 1440p gaming with 144hz monitor.
Mainly I play World of Tanks,but I always play AAA games when they are out,mostly FPS and TPS games.
My desk is 80×140cm and I will sit approx 2 feet from monitor,monitor will be used mainly for gaming,for movies I have 55' 60hz tv.
I can't decide which monitor to buy.Probably 27' will be too small and 32' too big or okay? Also there are 34' UW monitors which makes the choice harder but they are 100-120hz and I don't know if that will be enough by today's standards.
Thanks in advance!

Was looking today in the shop at 34' from 2 feet distance and I think that's too big and too much load on eyes,what about 27'? I think it's kinda optimal in size but I can't decide which one to buy...

1 month later and believe it or not,I'm still looking what to buy.

There is Samsung CHG70 32' version in my country for 600$
Also there is this acer 31.5 for 350$ - https://smile.amazon.com/Acer-ED323QUR-Abidpx-FREESYNC-Technology/dp/B07DR5PG8S/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=acer+31.5&qid=1555591019&s=gateway&sr=8-1

Thing is that returning isn't an option if I just don't like something,it should be defective so I have to buy with confidence. Samsung is using PWM and I don't know will it be hurting eyes or not during gaming sessions,there is no info about Acer regarding PWM,but it's almost half the price of samsung...

I know that buying monitor is the most difficult in PC part picking but am I missing any nice monitors bigger that 27 which are worth buying or maybe some upcoming models or should I try 27'? UW isn't an option for me because of weird short height.

I'm open to any recommendations,thanks folks.

Alienware gets an overall less than positive rep, but I did purchase their AW3418DW 34" curved 1440p 21:9 100hz(120hz overclock) late 2017 and I liked it so much I bought another one earlier on in 2018.

Definitely a little pricey though, at least it was.
