    Yer I changed CFG70 to CFG73 just before you answered cos CFG70's got a round base.. used to have CFG73, great monitor.
    What's the GPU?

    Rog Strix RTX 2080 ti .

    I removed the bases and used a double monitor stand bolted to the table.
    Less messy without the monitor feet getting in the way .

    It's a good looking setup I have a Thrustmaster Joystick I need to setup properly for flight sims, the base is as big as a dinner plate.

    I like the stand on CFG73, it's simple but still better than one on CFG70 or CHG70 imo.

    Btw why do you need two monitors?
    Wouldn't it be better to have one 49" Samsung CHG90(DFHD) or 27" Samsung CHG70(QHD) instead? or maybe even 27" Samsung CRG5(FHD 240Hz) if you are pro gamer.

    I hardly play games . I just wanted a fast computer,
    I like multi tasking with various apps open at the same time and find it easier having them spread across 2 monitors .
    We always use 2 monitors in work so that's what I am used to .
    I didn't fancy having a HUGE TV size monitor sat in front of me. I have a huge TV in the living room and need to be a few meters away otherwise it gets uncomfortable .
    I still have lots of real estate with the width of these 2 monitors and they are curved which I am getting to used to and liking quite a lot.
    Not sure I could go back to flat after using these :)

    49" Samsung CHG90 is basically identical size to 2x 27" Samsung CFG73, but you don't have the annoying bezel in the middle. :)

    Have you tried using 2 monitors ?
    With the 2 screens , it's like using 2 separate computers for me.
    I can have different apps running on 2 separate screens at the same time and it's so much easier than resizing windows on the same monitor .
    That's what I find anyway :)

    I find it much better with 2 monitors checking temps , speeds etc. whilst giving your rig a run for it's money .
    Probably other ways to do it but I find this cleaner and easier :)

    One UW > two normal imo, cos it's much better for games, can run triple split mode(easy with Samsung/LG software) and also less messy(one less stand/base, two less cables).
