Hello everybody! So I'm in the market for a monitor upgrade since my ancient 27" 1080p TN monitor was around during the last ice age and it's really time to let it go. But monitors are an area that I am not really knowledgeable about. I can read the spec sheets and i know some of what I want or don't want but selecting the right one from the list is important, as this baby is probably going to last with me through at least 5 years if my current one is any indication. My requirements: Must have: 27-32" Must have: 1440p or 4K Ideally have: IPS (or any better than TN panel) Usage: Mainly media, occasional bouts of hardcore gaming. I like to have several windows open next to each other at once so screen space is a must. Budget: In the UK. £400 max, although closer to £300 would allow me to free up budget to maybe get that Mechanical keyboard ive been considering for 2 years. Things i'm not sure on yet: I can't decide if 4k is worth it (i wouldn't be gaming at that resolution because my GPU would struggle a bit to much, but in all other uses it would be very nice). I'd be happy with 1440p but since i plan on keeping this monitor for a good number of years i don't want to miss out for the sake of a few quid. Is it worth paying more, or sacrificing other specs to get a 4K monitor over a 1440p right now? Also, Freesync. It's still not on a lot of new monitors that are otherwise very good on paper, is this something i really need to be focusing on as only a part time gamer, or should i just treat it as a nice bonus if the monitor i choose happens to have it?
