Hi, 

I`ve been looking at the MAG322CQR to use with my PS4 Pro and eventually the PS5.
Can anyone with some better understanding than me of how things work, tell me if this will be a good match?

I know about the MAG321Curv, will this be a better option? (Even for the upcoming PS5 and the specs on it)

Looking forward for some insightful answers, as I`m not very into monitors - currently using a Samsung QLED 65" as my screen.........

Both are curved and at the same size (31.5"). The Optix MAG322CQR is at the lower 2560 x 1440 (WQHD) resolution but offers a 165 Hz refresh rate which is good for fast FPS games. The Optix MAG321CURV offers the higher 3840 x 2160 (UHD) resolution but just 60 Hz refresh rate.
For console gaming - as mostly limited to 60hz anyway - I'd go for the MAG321CURV because the image simply looks better at a UHD resolution at the huge size of the monitor. PS4 Pro and PS5 should also support UHD resolutions.
