Hey guys, I made this thread in the General hardware section by mistake and I'm moving it here. So, I'm building a new rig and i'm in a dillema of what monitor I should go to. Notice that the three monitors that I am to choose from are all at the same price in my local stores. Budget is ~350€ .

https://www.amazon.com/BenQ-XL2411Z...8&qid=1467455111&sr=8-1&keywords=BenQ+XL2411Z

Which one would you suggest? Would you go for a monitor outside the list? Thx!

I'm thinking of this as well! What do you think?

Can you find any Dell UltraSharp monitors in your area?

Sounds similar to my usage, either one will serve you well.
The UP2516D is a newer model and the panel calibrates a hair better, but I doubt you'd notice the difference between the two.
I'd get which ever of those two is cheaper when you're ready to buy :)

Thx for the help ATM :) would you consider buying the 4k Samsung I posted? If not, why not? Thx again!

I would stick to 1440p personally, for many reasons.
Also 4K in a display under 27" is borderline useless, you get to where you can't see things well.
