SPORTbible went ahead and interviewed the gamer.
He informed, "I liked the idea of having an ultrawide monitor for a number of reasons. Primarily, I wanted it for productivity purposes. I'm a Computer Science student and having the extra screen real estate is really useful for coding and multitasking."
He added, "I also love gaming and though it would be really fun to play certain games like FIFA and Call Of Duty in ultrawide. FIFA is especially fun on this monitor because the aspect ratio allows me to see almost the entire pitch while playing."
Revealing the advantages of playing on his screen, he concluded, "This has proved really useful for playing long through balls that my opponent can't anticipate and has also been very useful for defence as I'm always aware of my defenders' positioning."
The 19-year-old's PC has an Nvidia RTX 2080ti graphics card, i9 9900k CPU, 32 Gigabytes of DDR4 RAM and 2 terabytes of SSD storage.
For sound, he uses two Klipsch R-51PM tweeters alongside a Klipsch R-120SW subwoofer under his desk, not to mention a pair of Bose QC35 headphones.
