    As above im thinking of upgrading my rig ,at the moment im siting 4ft away from a 40 inch 1080p flat screen ,im looking for more immersion so my idea is to sit the screen behind my wheelbase,my choice is either 32 benq 303r curved monitor not 4k,or 32 -40 inch 4k flat screen tv ,thoughts please if any of you has made this choice ,or has this monitor , this will be using xbox one x only. really like the idea of the curved screen but only if it wont distort the picture.many thanks

    thanks for links ,but pockets not deep enough for those,4 -5 hundred max euros ,will only be used for xbox one x sim driving ,also dont think consoles can cope with that size of a screen.

    These 32:9 monitors can be used on the PC only or consoles too?

    You can use them on console, but the picture will only fill 16:9 frame.

    Oops, you mentioned it that it is only for Xbox One X use only in your first post. I must have missed it. In that case, a TV is the better choice.

    You could get a 4K curved TV.

    40" flat vs 32" curved? No contest - bigger every time. A bigger, closer screen allows you to get closer to the mathematically correct field of view - an accurate FOV will help immersion far more than a curved screen. And curved TVs are not really that curved anyway.

    Agreed but I think it is not possible to adjust the FOV in Xbox one x race games.
    If it is possible than the bigger, the better.

    Yes I agree with you,after trying out a 32" screen I was not impressed,thinking now 50" 4k 60Hz tv

    FOV adjustment depends on the game, not the platform. PC2 supports FOV adjustment.
