Or....how about this: "Have you thought about mounting it on a wall to help ease the neck strain?".

No need to be an a$$hole when trying to make a point.

30" Ultrawide would give you the same height, and approximate same density, as your 24" 1080p monitor. I don't know of many 30" ultrawide monitors. So I think you would have to either go with something like this 29" monitor. Or a 32", which is ~12.4" high, and a pixel count slightly less dense.

My calculations put it as follows for 1080p;
24" widescreen ~91.8 pixels per inch (vertical measurement)
27" widescreen ~81.6 pixels per inch

29" ultrawide ~95.8 pixels per inch
32" ultrawide ~86.8 pixels per inch

So you would probably start to see pixelation on a 32". How much that bugs you, or not, is up to you. But if you have 24" already, you can use that as reference. Note my numbers are based on generic measurements to give a reference, relative to each size, and actual products will probably vary slightly.

It's an ultrawide. Pixel density should be similar to a normal 24" 1080P monitor which is totally fine for most people.

1080 on a 29" is iffy to me. That's a pretty low pixel density

It's not the greatest pixel density ever but because of its aspect ratio, it's a very short screen so it's not that bad.

I have this 2 years now, bought from costco. have mixed feelings about it.

It gets the job done, but the non-adjustable stand is giving me neck pains.

if my eGPU has a DisplayPort, would I be better off finding a model with a DisplayPort? When I use HDMI, my Mac only outputs 60hz but when I use a DisplayPort, I am able to change the Mac output to 75, which would be the max refresh rate for this monitor.

Bragging about your 17 inch monitor is hilarious.

If I am replacing 2 24" monitors, what size Ultrawide monitors should I be looking at?

Height of the 29" ultra wide is ~11.3". Height of a 24" widescreen is ~11.8". So pixel count per inch is actually a little higher than what I would consider a max screen size for both gaming and productivity for most people at 1080p. This ultrawide is approximately the same height as most 23" widescreen monitors.
