Questions on Ultrawide

Hi Guys,

I am looking at upgrading my 3x27" 1080P monitors over to an ultrawide and I have some questions. First off, I use this for both my PC and Xbox.

I was debating on the 38" Acer XR382CQK due to the 1ms delay and Freesync aspect. With the ratio being 3840x1600, how much of the screen would actually be utilized other than not much? I have the old xbox one as well, so no higher res options other than 1080P.

Do you feel that this monitor is too large for normal gaming?

Any other thoughts/opinions would be great, as well as if there are better options or alternatives out there.

Thanks!

I thought the exact same about the resolution. I’m assuming there would be black bars on almost every game.

Which one were you considering? I’m weighing a lot of different ones.
