I'm toying with getting a new monitor. My current Samsung BX2440 is going on 7 years old now and still functioning flawlessly, but I'm looking into a 28-32" wide screen or Ultra-wide screen. I prefer to stick to Samsung as they have been very good to me over the years. LG would be a second choice, and oddly enough, Dell would be 3rd.
I see people raving about these new curved screens, but I'm not sure if they are worth the bang for the buck or not. I do play video games, but not as much as I used to. I'm running an ATI Radeon R9 390 8gb video card, so I'm sure it can handle a bigger screen just fine.
I don't watch movies on my PC either so I'm not sure the 2k/4k is worth looking into either.
Call me "cheap", but I also wouldn't pay more than $300-350 for a monitor. My current monitor was $299 when I got it and has lasted this long, so it's paid for itself as far as I'm concerned.
I see Newegg has a section classified as "Gaming Monitors", but I'm not sure what would set them apart other than maybe a response time or just the word "gaming" to make people spend more money than needed.
