It will be used for work (programming, reading, web) and some gaming (not CS:GO), movies.
I think the ideal size would be 27". The idea is to get "better" image ("retina"), not to get more space. I definitely don't want 40+" or ultrawide because I already have enough space with 2 screens and I think it is more convenient (for example I can maximize a window on one of them by just double clicking it instead of snapping to sides, etc.). I am not sure about something like 32", I think it may be too big or even not fit my table.
Should I take 4k or 1440p?
An advantage of 1440p is that there are 144+Hz refresh rates, but do I really need it if it's not just for gaming and I don't play competitive FPS like CS:GO? And as I understand it doesn't give much advantage outside of games: mostly just a bit smoother animation of window and mouse movements.
I will have 1080 or 1080 Ti and can upgrade the GPU later, so performance should be fine, but I am afraid of scaling issues. I tried to use my current screen with 150% scaling: seems like most of the software I use is not too ancient and there were not much issues, but still I guess I would encounter blurry or "too small" apps and other issues from time to time, especially since I will have monitors with different scaling.
Currently I am thinking about AOC AG271UG (G-Sync) or Asus PB27UQ, MX27UC. Or if they don't worth it maybe one of the cheaper LGs (27UD68, 27UD69).
Should I take a monitor with G-Sync? I don't remember ever noticing the screen tearing, so I don't know if I really need G-Sync.
Also is there any disadvantages of using "gaming" monitors like the first one for work? I heard that they have less options in the menu, but I don't know if there is anything useful for me, in the current ones I only adjusted brightness and colors a bit (and not sure if it was even really necessary).
