Looking to buy a new monitor, some opinions would be appreciated

Looking to get either a 1920 x 1080 144Hz, a 2560 x 1080 60Hz monitor or a 2560 x 1440 60Hz.

I am SUPER interested in getting an ultra-widescreen, but not sure how well it works with poe which would be my main concern. I know some games freak out with odd resolutions, and if I'm forced to play 1920x1080 pillarboxed and locked at 60Hz then there's no point in me buying one, to begin with.

I have a 1920x1080 144Hz monitor as my main one right now, so what I buy will probably become my main one while what I currently have would be secondary. In all honesty, if 2560x1080 works then I'll 100% go for it, but otherwise, it would be nice to know if 2560x1440 works nicely with the game for you guys.

Simon:
To be honest i am doubful of people that claim that they can see faster than 60Hz but then I prabably have attention deficit. I tend to go for resolution over speed and prefer IPS, the LG monitors of which i own 1 are to be seen te be beleived.

2560x1440 (16:9) is an incredibly common resolution.  I've never played a game that didn't natively support it.  2560x1080 would be extremely wide and low res, I'm not sure you'd want a monitor like that. 

The 30+ inch Ultrawides do seem to have relatively poor support, it depends on what games you play but I would expect at least a few of them to block off the sides of the monitor to fix the aspect ratio.  I think even big ones like Overwatch still don't have full ultrawide support.

The gaming sweet spot right now is IPS 2560x1440 at 144hz.  4k is too many pixels to push at high refresh rates, and 1920x1080 is too low res to look crisp.  Given that you have a 144hz monitor now I'm surprised you're even considering 60hz models, for most people (myself included) once you see 144hz you'll never go back to 60hz under any circumstances.  It's just so much better.

Simon:
4K is unneccessary for moving content. The only reason i use it is for text smoothness and general good experience of not being able to see the pixels.

cnering:
Oh definitely, 4k looks gorgeous, I would just pass on it if the focus is more on gaming.
