New machine, Monitors doubts. HELP Please!

Recommended Posts

Hello people,

Let me introduce first.  My name is Ricardo and i live in Portugal. 

Beeing an huge fan of Simulator, since the old Fs2002 🙂 but not a great pilot, i like to spend some of my free time fliying and learn a little bit more.

Right now i have a laptop ( HP Omen i7 7700 HQ and GTX1060 MaxQ) but i would like to make a change for a desktop machine, and of course, i have many doubts. Here is the machine that i am planning:


CPU: I5 9600K - 250,90€

MBO: Gigabyte Z390 Gaming SLI 158,00€

GPU: Gigabyte GTX1660TI GamingOC 6GB 310,00€

RAM: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 2x8GB 3000MHZ RGB 104,00€

PSU: CoolerMaster MasterWatt 650W Gold full Modular 75,00€

COOLER: CoolerMaster MasterLiquid ML120L RGB 49,00€

CASE: CoolerMaster MasterBox 5 Pro RGB 66,00€

SSD1: Crucial MX500 500GB ( owned )

SSD2: Gigabyte 120GB ( OS only ) 20,00€

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200rpm 34,00€


Total Cost around 1067,00€

At this point, i think that all components are compatible and the build is well balanced, of corse it could be better but it will cost me a lot more money 🙂


Now my doubts:

- 34 inch monitor ou 3 25 inch monitor? What will give me a better experince? i don't have trackIR.

For the 34 inch monitor i have some used options, like this:

- LG 34UC79G 350,00€

- AOC 3477PQU 400,00€

- LG 34UM88 525,00€

Maybe i can star with a 34inch right now then put 2 extras monitor with the same height sizer but not ultrawide on each side of the ultrawide, it will be a good option?


For the 25 inch monitor i want some frameless monitor but not expensive ( very dificult in Portugal  🙂 ). What about these model?

- AOC 2590VXQ ? I saw some videos and some pictures and this model seem to be a borderless. This option is more expensive for now that the 2 first 34 incho option, but if in the 34 inch option i add the other 2 monitors it will cost more than this one.


Let read your options or giving me some other combinations for the monitors


Best regards,


Ricardo Carpinteiro
