Iíve just seen the Samsung CF791 but I think it uses pretty much the same panel as the MX348Q. The colour representation might be slightly better with the Quantum Dot though?

To clear things up I saved the pennies and got myself a 1080 ti. The build is complete minus the monitor which is the only thing I need now.

Hi TTL! Your a quality reviewer.

I'd get either the ROG or the Samsung one.

Considering you have Nvidia though it makes sense to want to make use of the Gsync offered in the ROG monitor. The Samsung one does not support Adaptive sync.

Acer Z35P is worth a look. I have the older x34 stable at 95hz but the Z35P is 100hz out of the box, 3440 x 1440 res so they look really nice and easily powered by your 1080 Ti.

BLB on mine is mild around the corners but I don't notice it unless I actually look for it on black backgrounds and don't notice at all in game. Even games set in space like Elite Dangerous. Asus PG348Q and Acer X34 use exactly the same panels. Both have unnecessarily large footprint stands. Go the wall mount if you can

I actually have the Acer Z35P at the moment. It has next to no BLB, although strangely enough Iíve noticed some flickering along the top, on the tabs in Chrome. And itís only in Chrome and on this monitor. Iíve also noticed ghosting, on darker forums such as [H]ard forum.

Itís certainly between these two. The Acer line Iím not a fan of design wise, something to do with the larger bezels and Predator branding.

The dilemma between GSync and no GSync to save a bit of money on an already expensive build is still there....

I might also need the stand measurements on the ROG to see if it will go on my desk as Iíve just bought a unit for all this as well. The Samsung stand certainly is more accommodating.

Z35P is also a VA panel, that's why you don't notice backlight bleed. But those panels tend to suffer from glow issues instead, so... Pick your poison

It's when sometime you have white bold text on a black background, if you move your position to the sides you will see that text glowing like it suddenly got an aura around it. Not sure if it's a common issue though, but I had a screen with that
