Default New Monitor

My turn for a new monitor thread.

Moved my office in my house to a room more suited for that purpose, especially since I'm now working from home until likely next year some time. I was using a 49" Sony X900F, and it was fantastic...but I'm sitting at my desk like a normal person now and that's overkill.

This won't be the primary PC gaming rig since I still have the Sony in the other room, which is now strictly a movie/gaming space (gaming PC in my sig is in that room). The office will be productivity, but also some gaming here and there if the mood strikes me or a particular games is better at a desk. I've already built a 2nd PC with my other hardware, and one of my 1080Ti's will be going in it whenever I get my hands on a new 3080Ti. I kind of want want to dabble in something different, like higher refresh rates. If I do go 4k, it should probably have GSYNC.

Considering a variety of options, and I'll be sitting ~30" from the display(s). Budget is ~$1000, but I'd be willing to splurge on a VERY good display if it hits every criteria and is perfect.

1. 27" 2560x1440
2. 32" 4k
3. No curved displays

I've been looking for a week now at different options and countless reviews/videos. Curious what you guys think are good monitors in these options, and why.
