For anyone with any model odyssey who has the ability to wall mount to a wall( if your desk is sat up against a wall then 9/10 you can wall mount your monitor lol) this mount works for them all.
My setup for reference
Portable Monitor, Upgraded 15.6 Inch IPS HDR 1920X1080 FHD Eye Care Screen USB C Gaming Monitor, Dual Speaker Computer Display with Type-C HDMI VESA for Laptop PC MAC Phone Xbox PS4 Include Smart Case https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07TWGBG3P/
However if you look closely you'll see the ports/cables coming out the sides. Its also gossy instead of matte. It's killing it for me. Just ordered these today to try out:
Asus VT168H 15.6" 1366x768 HDMI VGA 10-Point Touch Eye Care Monitor, 15.6-inch https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N4U7E7H/
I use this with a GTX 1060 6GB, and I am very happy with it. A GTX 1080 would make it even better for that butter smooth gameplay with 144hz. It is also an IPS panel which is great.
Not sure why this isn't sticky. What you want is Windock and completely free.
Then import this json for a 60/40 split.(create a notepad, paste rename json extension. Play around with it for your triple setup.
Just to add to this:
I talk more about this in my AW3418DW calibration results post here - https://www.reddit.com/r/Monitors/comments/82dcey/aw3418dw_calibration_measurements_results_and/
Its a combination of these two mounts: This one with the top part of
this one so the 34" extends out. I couldn't find an arm piece the right size by itself.
UPDATE: Just looked at Amazon to check out the reviews and found the following information...
Question: Verified with acer - the xr382cqk resolution is actually 3840 x 1600 ?
Answer: The supported resolutions depending on connection are:
HDMI: 3840 x 1600 @75Hz
DP: 3840 x 1600 @75Hz
MHL: 1920 x 1080 @60Hz
Screenshot for good measure
Yes, but one time pay for all the computers in your household. It's worth the price for all the functions it has. Relieves a lot of hastle if you have a multi monitor setup.
The free version misses what you want:
Sometimes they have sales, discount codes.
Why are you cheaping out on the arm? Please don’t ruin your stuff like this. The Amazon page itself says it’s for up to 34” screens. The weight distribution of a 49” curved monitor is so different from anything within the rated specs of that mounting arm.
Get one like this: Ergotron HX Ultrawide Monitor Arm Desk Mount with HD Pivot- for Screens 20-42 lbs- Bright White https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0959D7XDM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_YSYXJTM3NPAHDSD8HC1C
It might be a 55 inch. I saw this mod on amazon that converts a regular 16:9 monitor into 2 ultra wides. https://www.amazon.com/Scotch-Electrical-Tape-4-Inch-66-Foot/dp/B001ULCB1O
Well yeah, kinda. It's wonky at best and the game turns it's 30fps lock on at weird points, like all the fatal blows, fatalities and the gory stuff is in 30fps. Not to mention the Krypt which is 30fps and forced 16:9.
I did the article on PCGW, go check it out if anyone needs any information about the PC port, I tried my best, but its still a bit incomplete: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Mortal_Kombat_11
At least some Amazon Basics monitor arms are rebranded Ergotron arms.
I use this one on my 38" UW and it's Rock solid:
AmazonBasics Premium Single 32inch... (.ca link)
I imagine he likes them for their retro look and doesn't plan on replacing them. Plus, theyre Harman Kardon, probably sound pretty good.
4 stars, 1,279 customer reviews
I got this one:
WALI Single Monitor Gas Spring Desk Mount Heavy Duty Aluminum Fully Adjustable Fit Screen up to 35 inch, 33 lbs. VESA 75 and 100 (GSM001XL), Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07NLMLLT6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_fc-2DbC1BCWXM
No issues once adjusted and tightened properly. Using with CHG90
I use BetterTouchTool for snapping and some Touch Bar customization in macOS but there’s also a version of it just for snapping called BetterSnapTool. HIGHLY recommend it.
Here is the amazon link for those at work.
Anyone here own this monitor? My company has a partnership with Dell so I could pick one up for $560 for personal use. Only thing holding me back is the 60Hz refresh rate. Anyone have a problem with this or notice it a lot during games? I'm a light "gamer" but I could afford a Gsync ultrawide from Asus or Acer. Just not sure if its worth twice the price.
ColorMunki Display and DisplayCal which I greatly prefer to the stock software.
To be honest, the stock calibration was pretty good. I just feel professionally responsible for calibrating my monitors regularly, even though in the end it doesn't make a massive difference with this stuff.
No problem. You can find some decent mounts for like 20 bucks on amazon. I use this for my g9, just make sure you get the right size, sometimes amazon links get send you to the right page but wrong selection
Should be this one with the USB ports, have the same one and after some fine tuning holds the G9 just fine
A splitter would not work in this situation. You need an active HDMI selector switch, tons of them on Amazon if you search for that. This one seems to be pretty popular: https://smile.amazon.com/Kinivo-501BN-Premium-wireless-adapter/dp/B0049SCB2Y/
It's a 32" monitor. It's not a CF791. Buy new from Amazon for just over $250.
The game is letterboxed at 16:9 but it fully fills the screen at 21:9.
Compare this to Heavy Rain that came out pillarboxed. Speaking of which, I have worked on its PCGamingWiki article and made a mod allowing for flawed 21:9 support.
Have you tried FancyZones? It's built into PowerToys and I love using it. I can't comment on how easy customizing is since I'm only using a basic 3 column layout, but it does support different setups on different monitors.
I bought one on Amazon that was rated for 33 lbs. Also read reviews looking for people who used it with my monitor.
Just wanted to share what's in my setup to those who are asking.
Monitor: Samsung Odyssey G9
Monitor Arm: Ergotron HX with Heavy Duty Tilt-Pivot (Aluminum)
Above Monitor (Left to Right):
Camera: Logitech Brio
Lamp: Benq Screenbar
Right Below Monitor (Left to Right):
Good Mythical Morning Mug
Anker Qi Charger
Google Home Hub
a plant my wife wanted me to add (I do like it though)
BenQ Screenbar controller
Elgato Streamdeck (I use it as a Macro Keyboard and I love it)
Keyboard: Logitech G613
Mouse: Logitech MX Master 3
Wrist Rest: DeltaHub Carpio
Mat: A Large Mat I found on Amazon
Its a mix of these two.
They both have the exact same pole diameters, so the arm for the UW fit over the standing desk mount.
The amazon basics is a really good arm. The other is great, just wish the clamp was as wide as the amazon arm (that I can't use for this combo) for extra support. No problems with the weight though.
I've been looking forward to buying a LG 34GK950G-B.
I've watched it go in and out of stock at a few places (newegg, amazon, B&HPhoto never had it in stock) but any place that had it in stock was always at the full MSRP $1399 price. LG is having a Promo on it for $1199 (which not all places change their price to this) but it hadn't been available on any website for that advertised it for that price. Newegg dropped it to $1099 with an additional $50 promocode but that was swept up so quickly that they've been out since.
So the only place I've found in stock now is Adorama via Amazon.com and they have 10? 9? in stock (It said 10 when I ordered and is still 10) at the $1199 price, so if you're impatient and need a deal, there it is. But know that it has gone as little as $1049. That brings it closer to the AW3418DW price. The square trade 4 year warranty was only 11 bucks too, which I don't have any faith in square trade, but that's literally less than a percent of the cost of the monitor to upgrade the warranty on the other big annoyance people had with it.
EDIT: sold out now.
kinda look like the Amazon basics mount. I have the same for my Alienware 34" ultrawide and it holds it up just fine. It says in the description it only holds up to a 32 inch 25lb monitor, but I can guarantee it holds up a 34 inch 26.1lb one :)
Ergotron – HX Single Ultrawide Monitor Arm, VESA Wall Mount – for Monitors Up to 49 Inches, 20 to 42 lbs –White https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MSZIAET/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_i_V53XN3B2525D55X53VSK?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
...and the optional heavy duty mount... You'll find it mentioned in the q & a.
Hey just a FYI, TaskbarX can do this automatically and offers a bit more customization if that's your thing. I switch between monitors and different resolutions a lot so its made my life a lot easier.
You could look in to a USB Switch. They're basically just a hub that outputs to multiple computers and then you press a button to select which computer it passes your devices through to. I've never used one so I can't comment on quality but there's a plethora of cheap ones on Amazon.
Another option is something like synergy https://symless.com/synergy
I wanted a similar setup. What I ended up doing is going with the Ergotron HX, as they released a bracket specific for these large monitors, and a tall fixed rod mount for the smaller screen. The challenge is that the G9 with its curve creates issues for most of even the high-end office level monitor arms, so the HX is the only one I've found to really support it that isn't a fixed tilt, but doing so means you can't mount another above using the same arm. Luckily you can easily offset each arm from the center of the desk (one of the left and one to the right) and they are still centered on the desk.
Not OP but I’ve had my Uplift Pursuit for maybe 6 months and have really enjoyed it. Only recommendation are some armrest pads. These are what I use.
I just use a HW Hub with an separate switch (like this one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FQYFN76/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_imm_t1_wE-cGb0MT2NEM).
Switch is fixed below the table - super comfortable and no software hassles.
I had the crg9 and g9 and this monitor arm worked great for both!
Get a certified cable. link
I use this one: Amazon
Just to clear something up. The laptop variant of the 1060 is slightly less powerful than a desktop based 1060. The 1060 was designed to play games at 1080p at just about 60 FPS so you wont be getting any sort of smooth performance with a 3440x1440 100hz output.
That being said, the only VESA certified cable that has been tested to work is this one
They use the same cable that comes with the X34 (DP to DP) just rebranded. There are cheaper ones on amazon but there is a high chance they wont work.
The white drawers are from Ikea, the ALEX model.
The wood slab is a walnut butcher block purchased from amazon 72x25" it has a natural oil finish.
Ikea sells some pretty nice looking wood countertops that get used for desks pretty often. The ikea by me didnt have any in stock that i liked so i went with the butcher block and am really happy with the end result.

How tough was it not to buy the scorpion version?
Whats your budget? Microcenter is running a nice deal on a 1060 6GB for $230.
Imo once you start using it you'll forget about window positioning and end up just putting them wherever they end up.
I'm a platform engineer, i write a lot of code / infrastructure etc and spend a lot of time either in my code editor or in a terminal. I use Linux with a tiling window manager, basically this means that whatever window i open up is automatically tiled to fit around my existing windows. This helps a lot with productivity. I kinda get what you're saying with "primary windows to the center".
I'm running a Samsung G9 (32:9) and my window manager is configured to set my editor in the centre of the screen, then i have one or two terminals stacked to the left then usually a browser or 2nd editor to the right (see picture). The curve on the G9 (1000R) means the sides are the same distance away from my eyeballs as the centre of the panel.
This is just a byproduct of my using this panel for over a year, prior to this i used three 16:9 panels which gave me very similar desktop space but with the annoyance of having the panels split in places i didn't want them
WSGF has a pretty exhaustive list of supported games for both 21:9 and 32:9. If a game supports 21:9 there is a decent chance it'll support 32:9 but it's not guaranteed.
PCGamingWiki is also a great resource for this and general game tweaks, optimizations, and fixes. The ultrawide support section usually links back to WSGF though, so I would start there for just ultrawide support.
I previously used Magnet but recently got an Ultrawide and switched to Rectangle or Hookshot.
Rectangle I believe is 100% free and will do everything Magnet can do (iirc).
Hookshot is a paid upgrade to Rectangle that is more powerful. I've recently been trying it out and really like the configurability of using mouse movements.
For example, if I hold down one of the side buttons on my mouse, then move my cursor in a certain direction, I can control where the window will snap to. This is much better than the usual method of snapping it to the edge of the screen - on an ultrawide, the edge of the screen is too far away. (Keyboard commands also work great, of course.)
On Windows I use Power Toys, as the other commentor mentioned.
Btw, if you find a solution for your idea of "playing games in 16:9 with windows either side" please let me know! I would love to find a software solution to playing a fullscreen game in the center with "virtual" second displays to the side, but Im not sure that exists.
Maybe try using some display software?
Here’s a trial for one https://steamcommunity.com/linkfilter/?url=https://www.displayfusion.com/Download/
Pretty sure you can configure your resolution using this.
I previously used DisplayFusion on my personal machine. Now I use the FancyZones plugin of PowerToys, published by Microsoft on Github:
thanks. that one was tempting for sure. this is gonna sound silly, but i decided to go for https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B08NPQ1ZRV/ because i really hate cables sticking out, and this one plugs in behind the screen (effectively) in the base/stand. if it doesnt work out i'll pick up the one you linked.
I have this one and like it. Its the same size all the way around and the ports are kn the side. It can be powered by and provided input via usb c so one cord. It also has low profile controls. No issues with touch position recognition either.
I also tested their 4k version and while it was nice, it was too small at full resolution for touch screen imho.
Have you considered wall mounting it?
This would free up your desk space.
Last week I picked up an MSI MPG ARTYMIS 343CQR . I would have posted it, but I'm still waiting on Amazon to deliver the wall mount for it. Otherwise the accessories are all cluttering up my desk.
Also bought a Samsung LC34J791WTNXZA 34" for my souse the same week, except she had a pre existing wall mount, so up it went. SHe's in love with it. No desk space sacraficed.
I got a cheap one off of amazon. No fancy mounting stuff. Just enough for two stacked monitors.
EDIT Ask and ye shall receive one for $39.99 plus shipping and handling
EDIT 2: a review
It's cheap. Which is great. It's also pretty damn sturdy. There's slight wobble with a 34UM95 and a 22" Dell 1080p from 2009 on it but only if I nudge the monitors. The mounts allow for pivot, tilt and rotation, but the pole height prevents you from mounting a vertical monitor and anything else. There's two cable clips on the pole to keep stuff hidden, and assembly is pretty easy. I can comfortably fit both my monitors with 6" of clearance from the desk to the bottom of the LG.
4/5 stars. Would buy again.
$699 on eBay, ships from California.
Alternatively, can be found on Amazon (non-Prime but free shipping) for $729.
Ive had an Acer X34 on on an Amazon Basics Arm for several months now and going on the comments section I'm not alone in putting 34" on this arm or liking the quality of it.
I'd take a look at the Acer CZ340CK. The colors are decent. Clocked at 75hz. You could get a manufactured refurbished model on Amazon for $535 currently. I've had mine for a few weeks now and I'm loving it. Link
I just use the Amazon one:
I had to tighten the tension on it, as shown in the instructions, but after that it's worked fine.
The best mount would easily be the Amazon Basics Arm Mount. It's a rebranded Ergotron LX, which is the other choice.
It'll hold the monitor even when offset, like so.
I had an Ergatron that the Asus was already on but I changed it’s mount for uniformity.
Bottom monitor is in this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00B21TLQU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_cM7jCb1TJC4Z3
Top monitor on this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BO42XK0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_-O7jCbGRM2MB8
They have another tall mount that isn’t as nearly as tall as this one. It was on the Canadian amazon but not here in the states. Luckily I didn’t need to use all three sections of the vertical pole. I left one off and have the arm connected at the very top. If I had to use the last piece of the pole I was intended to cut it in half so it didn’t stick up higher than the monitor.
It's this one:
Took me a while to find one rated for enough weight that wouldn't poke out from behind it.
A lot of the ones that will take the weight are rated up to VESA 400 (400mm x 400mm) and the height of the G9 is less than 400mm. With this one, you can leave the bracket arms for VESA 400 off when using VESA 100 (G9 is VESA 100)
Crg9 monitor with a WALI XL gas spring arm. The arm is not meant for the 34 lbs of the beast of a monitor but it holds up perfectly fine with no wobbles.
Looks like it's one of these. Not sure on the specific model, but I just searched for computer monitor lamp.
computer monitor lamp
This mount from amazon. Need to tighten the screws a little more for the gas shocks out of the box, other than that it’s solid.
Mine Plane9 supports 21:9 aspect and multimonitor as well. Most of the 260 scenes adjust well to this but not all of them. Has a matrix trails scene as well.
>Is there a way in Windows or the on screen menu to "format" your display. What I'd like for example is to have the screen treated like 2 screens. So if I have a browser on the left and I hit full screen, it will fill just the left. And I could also drag a window to the right and have it snap to the other side of the screen.
I use Windock. You can set up custom regions on the screen for windows to fill, and then set custom triggers for how to activate them. I have one on the left and one on the right for two browser windows, at about a 60:40 split.
You definitely want to check out Windock, it should suit your needs quite nicely.
And if your interested there is another program called Aquasnap. It's a similar program with some different features like shift clicking the edges of a window to maximize it in that direction, and magnetizing all window edges.
I run both and disable Aquasnaps snap feature since Windock's is better. They also both conveniently run on startup :)
You might want to try UltraMon. I use it with a Dual screen setup(One regular, one Ultrawide) on Windows 10. You can override all kinds of settings, set specific wallpapers for each screen, save icon position, among other things. All of this stuff should be built into Windows, but it is not.
WinDivvy is the one I use most often simply for ease of use. Adjustable grid pattern and customizable hotkeys. The grid is somewhat limiting but for everyday use I find it adequate. Note: windows/apps will open in the same position and size they were when last used.
Bug.n is by far the most "powerful" window manager I have ever seen. So much you can do with it but tbh I can't personally attest to all it's features as the learning curve was too intimidating for me so I've made do with WinDivvy. If you're up to the task, this one seems to be exactly what you're looking for.
Silly me, I read your post too fast. Sorry.
I would use a program such as color profile keeper or DisplayCal to enforce that profile to correct gamma/white point at regular intevals.
I've had more success with "DisplayCal profile loader" myself. I can see the visual changes whilst I disable/enable the icc profile via the loader.
Download DisplayCal from here , use the default installation settings.
Once installed, run the program once. You can close the program, you are interested in the Loader only. DisplayCal profile loader should appear in the tasktray. Right click, profile associations, add, select the icc profile you have been using, select it from the list and click "set as default". This will let DisplayCal handle the profile, which it will run each time you launch/close an app/game.
To ensure it's running and doing its job, click on the DisplayCal icon in the tasktray and you should see a bubble pop up saying "calibration was applied so many times so far today"
Compare borderless / windowed vs running the profile via DisplayCals loader and please let me know how you get on.
It seems to work for all games I've tried it with.
[I apologize for so many edits!]
I use it and it works fine. You can use it to split your monitors up however you want. It also has a raft of other features like wallpaper management, snapping, hotkeys etc. It's one of those programs that once you have it set up, you don't notice it there.
Try PowerToys? Fancy Zones. Free so worth a shot and it's developed by Microsoft. Can be a little buggy but I've had success with it. Haven't tried specifically what you are trying though.
Same on all points. Here is my favorite. I also find myself moving windows around randomly enjoying how smooth it is. It kills me to use my 15" 60hz laptop when I travel for work all week =(
I've had issues with VLC playing blurays, but Leawo hasn't given me problems and is also free. You can zoom the video to fit the full frame and cut out black bars.
I've been using Davinci Resolve: https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/davinciresolve/
It does require some finagling for ultrawide videos, but once you get it working it works very well.
It's free, but is actually a very excellent video editor.
This is the arm:
Ergotron Desk Monitor Arm White https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01N5FTCJE?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
And this is the heavy duty head needed for the G9:
HX Heavy-Duty Tilt Pivot BWT https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08P53X9PF?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
I can't vouch for that version though, I'm using the standard black Ergotron LX.
It's an Ergotron HX and I would buy it again. The arm is firm but you can easily move it around, tilt and do what not, also the white colour looks kind of nice.
You need to use DisplayPort 1.4 to enable Display Stream Compression, which will get you the full resolution. Either get a Thunderbolt to DisplayPort cable like (https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters-DisplayPort-USB-C-Supporting/dp/B01J6DT070/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=thunderbolt+to+displayport+1.4&qid=1625507965&sr=8-3) or a Thunderbolt dock that outputs DisplayPort 1.4, and a matching DisplayPort 1.4 cable (this is the setup I'm using with my M1 Macbook Pro, works great. 5120x1440 at 120hz.
This USB switch works great if you’re looking to use the same mouse and keyboard for both your Mac and PC. I have one and haven’t noticed any lag from either device.
Not OP and not the same desk, but I have this one which is very similar and has a whole lot more room than I was expecting:
Eureka Ergonomic 61" L Shaped... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08K4HMXW1?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
If you're going for best price, TV mounts are a lot cheaper to hold up a lot of weight. This clamps to my desk and holds the G9 up for $50, you have to get the tilt right (via bolts) but once you do its pretty good.
This all assumes you won't move the monitor much tho, set and forget
They are 3D wall panels from Amazon
Don’t be like me and not order enough. I miscounted and now I have to wait a few more days for Amazon to get me another box of them lol
This should do it.
There, saved you your mousepad. Economics 101 right there. 😁
Just the AmazonBasics arm, the vertical monitor is on its regular stand while the UW is on this: AmazonBasics Premium Single Monitor Stand - Lift Engine Arm Mount, Aluminum - Black https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00MIBN16O/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_i_DSHEG6T2NKEHFYZ7V0DG?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
It’s apparently a rebranded Ergotron arm and the quality is solid.
The stand is homemade out out of 1.5mm stainless sheet, I made it to be the same width of the monitor and the height was to match my eye level when I'm sitting at the desk.
I also stuck an rgb strip on the back for the main monitor, it's powered from the wall and on a separate remote
The sound bar: creative stage 2.1
Second monitor: 15.6" portable monitor
(There are cheaper ones but I chose this one because it has a full size HDMI, mini DP & usbC DP pass through+power)

And some 140mm grills to stop wires getting into the fans
I would personally recommend something like this to mount the top monitor to your desk and then just set the G9 on its stand. You want to make sure that monitor arm goes high enough though. It needs to get the top monitor up about 24" inches (to the center of the VESA mount on the back, not the bottom of the top monitor) to fit a 25-29" monitor up top. The one I linked won't work, but there are some out there that should.
But of course-
Its a combination of these two mounts: This one with the top part of
this one so the 34" extends out longer. I couldn't find an arm piece the right size by itself.

Looks good. Was there a manufacturer's name on the box?
edit: Nevermind :D Found it on Amazon - WALI Single Monitor Gas Spring Desk Mount Heavy Duty Aluminum Fully Adjustable Fit Screen up to 35 inch, 33 lbs
I actually got this a few weeks ago when it was available: Webcam Stand, Flexible Desk Camera Mount Clip Stand with 1/4inch Screw for Logitech Webcam/DSLR/Ring Light/Smartphone/iPhone/Video Light/Camcorder/Action Camera/GoPro https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08LV7GZVB/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glc_fabc_uv7.Fb9AM8NFX?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
I had the brio for a bit too, and used this with it this : 25 Inch Webcam Stand - Flexible... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07VSDF7XT?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
I was able to clip that on the back of my monitor mount to avoid anything showing except the camera poking from the side of the monitor.
Hope this helps!
I've actually got two of these. I previously had 4 1080p monitors set up here - some for my work laptop and the others for my PC. The laptop didn't allow for everything to line up evenly so these worked well. I'll add a second or maybe 3rd monitor this week and I think it'll work alright. They're sturdy and I don't have any complaints.
I am using the same arm as u/zomgitzkyle.
I bought the 55" first, because you've probably noticed that for some reason costco sells it $100 cheaper than the 48" (48" is no longer in stores, only online). If you research online there are explanations that due to manufacturing reasons, the 55" is actually cheaper to make. But the problem is: 55" is too big as a monitor! So I returned it and paid the extra $100 for the 48". I have a giant desk (84"w, 36"d) so my eyes are about 40" from the screen. I have the Ergotron HX arm, but you need to buy an adapter plate (like this) to convert the Ergotron's 100x100mm to the LG's 300x200mm holes.
Productivity: you lose a lot of horizontal space from the CRG9, but gain vertical:
Gaming: the CRG9's super ultrawide was great, but I think you end up ignoring the stuff on the periphery. Also, you probably know not many games support the CRG's 32:9 aspect ratio. The LG CX OLED 120Hz G-sync is amazing. Luckily, I have an RTX 3080 that can drive 4k/120Hz.
Smart TV apps: with the LG, you also get instant access to the built-in apps like Netflix, Hulu, Spotify, Amazon Prime, Apple TV.
TL;DR: the CRG9 kills it if productivity is your main priority. For me, I wanted a balance with productivity/gaming/entertainment, and OLED is breathtaking.
(p.s. if you do end up going LG CX, be aware there are lots of tweaks to get RTX 3080 working right at 4k/120Hz: you need the latest firmware update, and 8k HDMI 2.1 cable, and the right Windows/NVIDIA control panel settings.)
The problem is that the G-Sync module seems to limit the number of inputs. To get around it, I have used this (bought when it was still available): https://www.amazon.com/LINDY-Port-4K-DisplayPort-Switch/dp/B00ZK2S71W
Despite claiming it supports DisplayPort 1.2, it works with DisplayPort 1.4 cards/monitors, because it’s entirely passive. It is still possible track this down under the NetMate brand on eBay.
Amazon also is starting to get flooded with various names selling this thing: https://www.amazon.com/DisplayPort-Switch-ConnBull-Bidirectional-Splitter/dp/B08GKYTY1H
Haven’t tried it, but looks like it would do the trick with these displays, or at least has a good chance of working.
I'd probably go with the LG 34UM88C-P its just over $600 right now on Amazon so a good bit under your budget. Grab a display port cable while you're at it, IIRC it doesn't ship with one in the box.
FWIW I just noticed that it has a product page on Amazon, although it says it's "temporarily out of stock." Not sure if this is new, but it might be something.
Edit: In checkout page it says the monitor releases December 11th.
Appreciate the love! It's this stand I bought on amazon. Holding pretty well so far and the tilt is a neck helper for sure. https://www.amazon.com/VIVO-Computer-Monitor-Vertical-STAND-V002R/dp/B01CUW5HDU/ref=sr_1_5?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1488008173&sr=1-5&keywords=vivo+dual+monitor+stand
So I was in a similar situation except with a 34" UW and a 22" widescreen. I ended up just getting two individual mounts. Cost me only around $50 off amazon. Ergotron makes a gas spring dual mount but I'm not 100% sure it would fit and it's well over $150
I used these and they work perfectly.
Here is a pic of them set up.
The CF791 comes with a VESA adaptor that attaches to the stand, I just brought the monitor myself and plan to mount using this mount from amazon.

No pictures atm. But if you read pgs. 147-149 on the link i provided, youll be able to see some:
i bought these spacers from Amazon
I sent Amazon last night the BestBuy price of the ASUS MX34VQ at $899.99 and they've updated their price to match that deal! :)
