You can get desktop PC displays that are curved, super-wide and gaming-friendly, but all three at once? That's tricky. Thankfully, Acer thinks it has an answer. The company has just launched the 34-inch XR341CK in the US, giving you a curvy, 21:9 aspect ratio LCD with AMD's anti-tearing FreeSync tech built-in. So long as you have a fast-enough gaming rig (including newer AMD graphics, if you want FreeSync), you'll get an extra-immersive canvas for your first-person shooters and racing sims.

You won't get 4K (this is "just" a 3,440 x 1,440 LCD), but you'll still find DisplayPort input, Mini DisplayPort, HDMI 2.0 and a USB 3.0 hub. There's also a 14W speaker system if the screen takes up the free space you'd normally use for audio gear. This monster monitor will cost $1,099 when it ships in July -- no small potatoes, but potentially worth it if you'd otherwise get multiple displays to achieve the same all-encompassing effect.
