3440x1440 Recommendations Please

I'm trying to research my next monitor. I've currently got a 28" 4K screen, and while very nice my hardware can't keep up (I got the panel at a ridiculously good price form a friend).

I'd like to sidegrade to an ultrawide 1440p but don't want to absolutely break the bank. I'm happy with 60Hz for the time being as I'm not a competitive gamer. Ideally 1x DisplayPort and 2x HDMI (for the Xbox and PlayStation) and a curve would be great. VESA mount is a must too.

I'm trawling through lots of reviews but was just wondering what you guys would recommend to help me along.

Hey just a headsup that the pixel count difference between 4K and 1440p ultrawide is only ~40% versus 1440p of ~56% and 1080p of ~75% so may not see enough of a difference to fix the perf issues but may do.

I "down/side-graded' in the same manner, but I'm not sure I'd recommend the AOC 35" I bought. I bought 2, one was DOA. The working one is fine though. It's 3440x1440 / G-sync / 100hz (can't remember the model # but I'll post it when I get home from work). The price was good too, around $900CDN, several hundred less than other 100hz panels, but I'm in Canada, so YMMV.


EDIT: the model is
AOC AG352UCG

There's some nice monitors there, thanks for the recommendations.

I really appreciate you guys taking the time out to help me, and I probably should have mentioned this earlier, but I could possibly save a bit of money by avoiding Gsync. I've got a Vega 56 GPU and probably won't be getting a new GPU for another year at least. Anyone of any decent Freesync panels that'd be worth a look as well?
