Nice monitor you got there! I actually just got the Alienware AW3418DW.
Only thing to be aware of with stacking monitors on something with a clamp is that your desk won't crumble under the weight/pressure of the clamp. (Like the "particleboard" Ikea stuff)
You have the option of spreading the load on a clamp with wider shims...or getting a freestanding mount.
I have this freestanding mount:
It's great, if bulky.
I actually have a big-ass LG 34um57 (34" 21:9) mounted on top...and it even supports that just fine. Been up there for almost 2 years now - not a single issue.
Greetings from the US! :)
I’ve got a VIVO vertical display right now for my two landscape monitors.

I'm using this one.
[link] though i gotta admit the top monitor isn't very ergonomic. hurts my neck to look for an extended period of time so i usually just have a spotify playlist on that monitor
I have a bit of a unique situation. I have a 29" LED TV I've been using for gaming and recently got a 25" LG ultrawide. Both have vesa mounts and I want to mount the TV above the ultrawide so I can watch movies and stuff on the TV and game on the ultrawide. I've been looking at this and similar stands but they only support up to 27". Any help?
I know a lot of people don't like stacked monitors but that is an idea for you. I have stacked 27" ultra wides and I will probably never go back to side by side. Saves so much space. This is the stand I have and it's great.
Hi OP I have a few questions (maybe more than a few...)
So I'm looking to upgrade in the monitor game. I was actually eyeing the same exact monitor that you have (Acer 3440x1400 UQWHD) but wasn't able to make a decision. How is the monitor? Would you recommend it? The refresh rate is what makes me hesitant. I wanted to bump up to 144Hz but I understand this monitor is capped at 60Hz.
Secondly, I was looking (same as you) to mount the monitor I have right now above the new monitor I get (whichever it ends up being). How does it feel? Is it comfortable to look at as opposed to the normal side by side setup?
Finally, what exactly did you use to mount your monitors? I was eyeing this guy. Any tips?
Thanks in advance!
(btw I'd love to see you do a full blown build if this is only a budget station)
I have one of these VIVO Dual LCD desk stands. At $65-ish, it's more than the $40 minimum cost ones, but it's solidly built. The base is heavy and doesn't move despite bumps from time to time.
I had an issue where one of the mounts wouldn't stay where I wanted no matter how tight I made the set screw. Their customer support showed me the super secret inside screw that's not "supposed" to need adjusting, but did in my case. Tightening that about 1/4 turn fixed everything nicely.
This is the stand I use for both my main monitor and the one on top of that :)
I'm using this Dual LCD Mount by ViVo. It says the limit is 27" but I'm not sure if that only applies with two monitors attached at once. If it's a single 32" it might work. The base is quite solid and there's an option to bolt it directly onto a desk (something I would have opted for, but my desk is glass).
Vivo and Mount It retail a variety of monitor mounts that you could browse on Amazon. Most have the option of either a base or a mounting bracket. You could just use the base for now and if you move and or get a new desk you'll already have the hardware on hand to mount the mount to your desk.
I bought a vertical dual monitor mount from Vivo that just arrived yesterday Item Page on Amazon. Decent so far, though I imagine in your case you're probably looking for a horizontal mount.

Hey! It’s a dual monitor mount, this is the one
Hey there! Here's a few links in order:
I just got the stand installed and I'm loving how organized and clean it looks, I still have to do some cable management in a little bit but so far this is just what I was expecting it to look/feel. The monitor on top is mostly a Media monitor or for singleplayer games, it's a 4K monitor I got earlier this year since I wanted a 32" main monitor back then.
That's my side. This is the stand, and it's a fucking tank. I'd recommend buying an alan wrench tool kit though because the one it comes with is very hard to use.
For most computers the general mounts should work. I have 3 different model dells, like a 27, 23, and a different 23, and I bought two Vivo mounts (one for portrait and one to mount the 27 and 23 vertically) and they all fit fine. They were all rear mounted originally, and I know a lot of the models now have mounts that go in from he bottom, which you’ll need adapters for. I’ll attach links to the mounts and my set up if you want to look.

Not fully finished with the Battle Station but that’s the monitor set up so far.
Edit: Here’s a link someone posted on an earlier post for mount adapter if yours doesn’t fit: [link]

I don't know if it fits your use-case, but I have a freestanding one - not a clamp style (I have a flimsy Ikea 98"er).
Here's a pic of how much desk space it takes up on my shallow desk: (ignore the cables, they've been fixed, after mounting the 21:9 I had to get a longer DP cable before I redid it all)
It's cheaper than most and lacks elegant design/looks/adjustability, but it's sturdy. If you were willing to spend $100+, I'm sure there's nicer options out there...
It's fully adjustable, once you find the sweet spot with the clamp tightness so it's movable but will hold its setting. I set it up the first time and it holds and adjusts fine, though, I'm not spinning my panels around constantly either.
There's a smaller one with a smaller stand footprint and a 2" shorter pole. I'm a shade under 6'3", so I wanted the tallest one I could get. In my height setup, there's about 1.5" of clamp room left up top.
I also have the heavier 21:9 on top, so I wanted to be sure it's sturdy, it's been 100% fine for two months now. If you have the 27" up top, you're definitely in the clear.
This thing's solid - zero wobble/sagging/anything. Which it better be, the base is a massive heavy hunk of steel.
EDIT: Another downside (if it is one for you), is that the two VESA mounts are evenly distanced from the pole. So, as you can see, you can't "inlay" the top panel behind the bottom one, it can only sit even and tilt down. I solved it by tilting the Ultrawide down when mounting and sliding it down a little to drop the bezel behind the bottom panel. It's good enough for me.
You could likely rig the bottom one with some spacers and longer screws to set it out a touch if you wanted...
Just a stand like this from amazon. And then this one for the side monitor I only needed that for the side one b/c I lost the original monitor stand.
It used to look like this on a tripple horizontal stand. It was fine for a few years but we started to do more couch coop and the right monitor would slightly block the tv if you were gaming on the left side of couch, unacceptable!
Actually really digging the double stack. The top/side setup > trip horizontal imo.
Btw the mount I have is a freestanding double mount, you can see the base in the back. This is it if you were curious.
The monitor stand I'm using is this one I wanted one that didn't need to be secured to the desk and it's definitely sturdy enough holding two semi heavy monitors.

So to indirectly confirm, if I'm mounting it to my arm, specifically this one, I should be good? Mind if I ask what arm you're using?
I use this with a 34um65 and a 34um67.
This is the monitor mount I used [link]
Does it have to be on the same stand? Could just spend the money on a nicer arm and simply position it over the larger display, and use the regular stand for the ultrawide.
I did find a doublesight, but it looks cheap as shit:
Are you against a wall? You'd probably have much better luck with wall mounted arms for cheaper. I don't think you'll have any luck with cheap vertical stands that large.
I'm kinda curious why you want them vertical. Even with two stacked 24" panels its honestly kinda weird to work off. I'd think it be extremely annoying above a 30", you'll be moving your neck back to look up.
Edit: Yeah nvm, I didn't think ultrawide and height. I'm used to 27" panel height. You'll probably be fine with any 23-24" dual monitor stand.
Something like that has nice wide feet. I mean you can always just rig it into your desk somehow. Drill a small hole and bolt it down.
My 2nd screen I just use browse, or voice chat. Cant use it to seriously, as you want to crank your neck to look up ;) My old 144hz 1440p I just took to work to use.
See if this link works for you ( older image ). I am not at home right now and at work I am limited where I can upload images to.
I am using this stand amazon ink, as I dont have allot of space where I am sitting and the desk is all glass.
Edit: Not in this image, but I also use this clamp for my Occulus CV1 sensor to attach it to the top screen :
