A few weeks back I suddenly found myself without a monitor. With a blank slate in front of me I started to decide what exactly I needed and wanted in a monitor. Gaming was obviously first priority, but content creation and screen realestate was big too. Having had an IPS display before, and really enjoying the contrast and quality it provided, I knew I wanted to go that route. But the next question I asked - could I live with 1080p or did I want to shoot for 1440p or the elusive 4K resolution.
