Upgrade Your PC Setup with a Half Price UltraWide Monitor

Save $150 when you go 21:9.

Article by Jamie Wallace, .

Even the most casual of PC gamers out there will be well aware of wave of popularity that 21:9 monitors have seen recently. Known as 'UltraWide' monitors, these beasts make your regular 16:9 setup seem all the more insignificant. While some of you out there are no doubt still wondering what the possible use cause for an UltraWide actually is, the vast majority of people who have made the switch will tell you one thing - you'll probably never go back to a regular monitor.

That being said, the main issue that most people will run into when attempting to check out this new breed of gaming displays is the prohibitive pricing. Regularly, these monitors will run well above $500 each. Not so at the moment, however, since over at Best Buy you can pick up an LG 29-inch IPS 21:9 monitor with FreeSync at half price - that brings the cost down to $199.99 at the moment.

Not bad at all. Although, for those of you who want a decent saving but still have an incredibly amount of money to burn, BuyDig is currently taking $370 off a massive 38-inch Dell UltraWide monitor.

As you can probably tell from that link above, the problem there is that not only is it still ludicriously huge but it's also ludicrously expensive.

All that being said, I for one welcome our new UltraWide overlords. Gaming will never quite be the same.

    I'm not gonna lie: I miss 4:3.

    Yes, wide is better for games and movies. But it's worse for reading websites and editing documents. The things most people spend the most of their time at a computer actually doing.

    @Thad I solve this problem by running the browser window in a space a little over half the size of the monitor, and using the other 35% for message clients, a Twitter app with it's endless ticker of new info, etc.
