Is there much of a difference?

So im debating between some monitors. Is there a noticeable difference between a 25" 2560 x 1440 WQHD monitor and a 27" 3440 x 1440? The ones im comparing are both Asus IPS monitors. Its just really the resolution and the slightly difference screen size. I am an avid gamer but certainly not a pro and the price difference is nearly 200 dollars different per monitor and as im getting two thats a lot to save... is the 3440 really that much better?

3440 x 1440 is 21:9 or ultra wide. 2560 x 1440 is 16:9 or standard widescreen. I have an ultra wide and I love it, but if you want to run games at high frames and max settings, you pretty much need a 2080 Ti. If you are getting two monitors though, no reason to buy two ultra wides. You won't be able to see everything without turning your head which would be annoying. For a two monitor setup, just get the two 16:9 displays. Or if you only want one monitor, get the ultra wide, but get a 34" not a 27".

good point, and yeah i didnt post the build but i have a 2080ti powering it. I mainly play MMO's.. so i typically only game on one screen cause i dont like the bezel in between but i use the second for music or youtube or whatever else. and 25" is kinda a good middle ground i guess. Thanks!
