Shape - While most modern displays are flat, curved monitors have started to trend.

Refresh Rate - Look for the refresh rate when considering a monitor. The higher the refresh rate, the better.

    so 4k @ 60hz means you need to push 497,664,000 pixles per second. 2k @ 144hz means you need to push 530,841,600 pixles per second. Mind you that these numbers are to achieve 60 fps at 4k constantly or 144 fps constantly at 2k.

    US prices on the UK edition are the usual way with this site, even though Future are based in Bath...
