[Dell] [Black Friday] ALIENWARE 38 CURVED GAMING MONITOR - AW3821DW ($1399 before cash back)

I believe this is the lowest it's ever been and even more so with Rakuten offering 12% cash back for today only.

Nice one! Just tried and that standard 10% monitor coupon doesn't seem to work, still a good deal tho!

I cant see what you guys are typing. I auto-set my monitor brightness to 0 when viewing this thread.

Anything with DLSS will and most top tier games nowadays have DLSS or add it shortly after and you don't need a 3090 with DLSS either, game changer imo. I also must resist as I do not need this but it would be a nice monitor to put above my OLED... someone think of a good excuse for my wife, quick. Ah screw it, easier to beg forgiveness then ask for permission. :)

I have been following benchmarks religiously and even with DLSS the 3090 won’t go over 75fps at 4K and that’s not even common - the pixels count on this monitor is pretty close to 4K.

On my 3440x1440 monitor I hit 120fps with dlss on horizon zero dawn with a 3090. Barely 55 on flight simulator with no dlss, and this is far less than the 3800x1600 pixels.

I don’t see a 3090 hitting 120-144hz reliably on most new games at this resolution.

Thanks, bought it with my WFH stipend. Should be a great upgrade from my old Dell U3415W. More screen real estate, higher brightness and higher refresh rate. I think it’s a solid choice for productivity + some gaming.

Sorry I meant "playable" consistent framerates which to me is anything over 60 FPS at 4K, seems buttery smooth to me but my eyes are old and perhaps the resolution is more important than the framerate. :) Either way this is a great deal on a great monitor.

This or the LG 38GN95B? Does anyone have any opinion?
I have the Amex plat deal so I'm very tempted.

Yeah that’s ok too. It’s just that after going to 100fps+ from 60, it’s hard to go back Slightly Smiling Face

Nevertheless, this is an amazing deal and if I didn’t have a monitor, I would pounce on it immediately.
