Sorry, but after getting used to the pixel clarity of 4K gaming, I could not drop down to 1440p, no matter how nice the extra bells & whistles it may come with.
I'd rather carry on with my 4K monitor (and its limitations) until a 4K monitor comes along with the same panel technology.
..also, Ultrawide support is still kind of sucky in PC gaming land.
I've been on Ultrawide since Dec and have been enjoying it however 90% of the games I play support it. And much easier to push 3440x1440 @ 144hz with a 6800XT plus prefer high refresh rate over 4k at 60hz.
That's the difference I'm not your friend. And I have no problems playing the other games in 16:9. I play Starcraft 2 on a regular. The rest of your post telling me what pro gamers do means absolutely nothing to me. As for what you would prefer that is your choice happy for you.90% of the games YOU play, maybe ... But there is tons of games that don't support 21:9. How do I know? Because a friend of mine uses 21:9 and refuses to play games without 21:9 support and he missed out on ALOT of must play titles because of this fact.
If you can't accept STRETCHING or BLACK BARS then 21:9 is not what you want. You will get one of those in at least half of the newer games...
This is always the problem when going with a custom resolution. 16:9 aspect is standard and this won't change anytime soon. Most games are made for consoles. Consoles are made for TVs and TVs are 16:9.
Ultrawide monitors are not the best for shooters, hence no pro gamers use ultrawid6e
I will take my 27" 1440p/240Hz/IPS + 65 OLED 4K/120Hz/Gsync on the side any time over a 34" UltraWide that is for sure...
I'll pick what I want depending on game. ELDEN RING was played on the OLED with controller. PC monitor is always chosen when I play fast paced gamers. Around 200 fps with 240 Hz GSYNC is simply smooth as butter.
How do you feel about the brake in immersion during cutscenes? I would say 90 % of games I played before my CX on my 3440 x1440p 100 hz ips gsync monitor broke the immersion during cutscenes I don't have that problem with my CX 100% of the games I play do not break immersion during cutscenes due to unanimous support for 16:9 standard ratio. While I loved gaming in the ultrawide but my biggest pet peeve was the break in immersion during cutscenes.I've been on Ultrawide since Dec and have been enjoying it however 90% of the games I play support it.

I'm really happy with Dell for bringing this to market...I can't wait to see what the choices look like in a few years.
