This ultrawide format has a specific appeal, and often also attracts the "pixel density" topic usually by someone that's only looking at specs and probably have never used this format/monitor.

I use this monitor (FreeSync version) every day for work and gaming.

You will definitely not be able to see any pixel separation at normal a viewing distance, especially for the type of games that people shopping for 144Hz monitors are playing.

You MAY be able to notice pixel separation doing work-related tasks like spreadsheet work.

This is equivalent to a ~27 inch 1080p monitor in pixel density

Way too low of a pixel density for me. The 30" acer that was on sale recently at 144Hz overclock to 200hz (?) at ~$400 is a better deal and even then it's probably too expensive.

I would trust LG's quality over Alienware any day of the week.
Quality wise Alienware is solid as is their customer service (Dell). The Alienware price however...

I just ordered the Monoprice 35" monitor earlier this week for $395 after tax, though it hasn't been delivered yet, where as this monitor is $526 after tax ($131 difference).

I have this exact GeForce GTX 960 [newegg.com], and I honestly don't know if it will do above 60 refresh / FPS on either of these two monitors. If someone knows please let me know. Otherwise my thoughts are:
  • LG - Better more trusted brand, higher refresh rate, G Sync, which is more native to my NVIDIA card (again if it will even do past 60...)
  • Monoprice - Much higher pixel density at 3440x1440, less expensive, FreeSync (and again not sure if my NVIDIA card can even take advantage of this with the newest drivers or not)

Thoughts between the two as well as either GSync or FreeSync working with my existing graphics card? Any help would be very much appreciated!!!

Your graphics card is on the older side, so you are more likely to produce acceptable framerates at 1080p vs 1440. I also order and received the MP 35 and have run into flickering and Freesync issues. I think build quality would be higher on the LG simply because it couldn't get much worse than this MP. Be prepared to run CRU if you run into Freesync issues on the Mono price.

Having used both the 1080p and 1440 at work, I'd strongly suggest getting a 1440 at this size. You'll easily see the pixels on this.

I'd keep the monoprice. As someone else mentioned your video card won't doing 60hz most likely on either. As for LG quality, my non-curved 29" ultrawide went out a few days ago after having it for less than two years. Other people had the exact same issue. I haven't baked the motherboard in the oven yet, which fixed my LG tv that also stopped working prematurely. Smilie 1440p vs 1080p is nice when you're going to do anything besides gaming on it.

I own a older version of this. The only way your going to see the pixels on this is if your sitting super close. All the people shitting on the resolution are not likely basing it off of specs and not real world usage.

Plus on a gaming perspective the lower res means that you can push higher fps with better quality settings on a less then beast card.

I have this [newegg.com] exact GPU & it looks pretty damn similar to yours. Also, I have this [acer.com] exact monitor & it can easily handle 120 fps.

Hope that helps!

Pretty sure a GTX 960 wont even do g-sync or freesync at all. Only 10 series and up. Frankly, I wouldn't waste another penny on a monitor until you upgrade your GPU. For $285 you can buy a used GTX 1070ti or similar.
