    You can upgrade the SSD and PSU.

    I also think they missed a trick, calling it the MAG491C... should have been the MAG1C-49!
    Nice on the side-by-side pic, but I'm kinda used to 1440 now.

    It's not uncommon for people to use two 16:9 monitors, so the likes of Samsung and MSI are gluing them together and getting rid of the bezel. Makes perfect sense IMO.

    I'm using a 21:9 at the moment and certainly wouldn't grumble at any extra width, but it would need to be 1440 pixels tall for my usage. However, 5120 x 1440 isn't far off the same amount of pixels as a 4K monitor which would require more than just one 1080Ti for smooth frames.

    At last, a decent width monitor. But wait... 1080p ! Oh no, I'm using 1440 at the moment, this would be a backwards step. Not going to happen. :-(
