ok fist time poster so here goes i have just built myself a new pc high specs think the perfect pc build in the latest PC&TA single GTX 980 card included but im stuck on the monitor im not sure if i really want to go 4K as i dont really play many of the games that are compatible with 4K at the moment im just using a 32" sony tv in 1080p resolution  and a 22" monitor as a secondary im not interested in gaming across multple monitors i play on one and have a web page/you-tube or a movie playing on the other looking for recommendations please include a reason why not just "get this model period" please thinkning around 400-600 per monitor cheaper is better of course 

TIA

Personally, I'd be looking at a 27"+ 1080p monitor with slight curve.

 

You're right that 4k isnt supported well enough yet. at least IMO

Pretty happy with my 27" Dell, 2560*1440 or something.

Nup.  Personally I wouldn't trust an expensive monitor going through the post or courier for that matter.

I bought a monitor here once as replacement for a same model 19" which was going bad, probably over 6 years ago.

But that was a purchase of maybe 50 bucks including postage so worth the risk.
