I recommend buying the identical monitor for a second one if possible..
If they are different in size, you will not be able to smoothly move a window from one to another without size discrepancies. Also, the color differences may bother you.

With different size monitors, a window spanning the two will look different on each side of the divide. The pixel sizes will be slightly different.
That is not a big thing, particularly if you tend to keep windows in one place.
If an identical monitor is not available, see if you can't at least match the size.
