What kind of games are you interested in? GPU is important too if considering Freesync/Gysnc options.

Dell Ultrasharp 34" U3415W or there's an AOC U3477 as well. LG make a couple of good ones in that price range depending on which features you really need. From memory LG make the panels for AOC and possibly Dell.

Do some research into them. There may be features you need that they do/don't have. VESA mounts etc. Looks may be important - or not.

There's plenty of reviews on YouTube. Chrazey on this forum I think has the Dell so have a look at that thread if you can find it using the search tool at at the top of the forums.

EDIT


Just checked and they're both a little over your budget sorry. I must have looked at a tax free price. (i'm in Aus sorry)

The LG UM95 (there are two models) are both flat screen and have been out a while but still good. The UC 97 is 20 quid over budget but may be viable. The AOC is within your range so check to see what the quality is like. I've not seen too many negative reviews.

Ah yeah I noticed that and edited my post. Good luck I've been looking for ages but in no real hurry atm. Hopefully the Swift and Predator models come down in price over the next six months. They have all the features you could want. Just ridiculous money tho!
