Hello everyone !

My current monitor is starting acting up and I think it will stop working soon so I want to look for new monitor .
Now the question is.. what size monitor my system can run without any hiccups ... ?

I am not as much into gaming lately but I still do play some games here and there...
for the most part my games are like
War Thunder
Company of Heroes 2
Diablo 3
Battlefield 1 ( not sure if I will get the BF5 )

I was thinking on getting something like between 31 and 34inch screen perhaps.. ??

I do some photo and video editing so bigger realestate would be nice
here is my current system

P.S almost forgot budget is about 250-350$

I was also looking at this one..

The size doesn't matter but the actual monitor specs do. You mentioned you want an ultra wide monitor-that pretty much means either 2560x1080 or 3440x1440. Higher resolutions and refresh rates will require more system resources to run effectively. A 3440x1440 monitor looks a hell lot better than the 2560x1080, especially if you go around the 34 inch size but it is more demanding and I am not exactly sure how well a 1060 would go about giving you great gaming performance. I personally have a 2560x1080 75hz monitor and I am extremely happy with it.

I wonder how good or bad at 34" @2560x1080 games and regular stuff like web pages will look
or should I step down to lets say 32" @2560x1440 for higher pixel density
