I would not go with a 4k monitor because it takes a lot to run and you will pay around 2000$ for one thats more then 60HZ, Instead go with a HDR gaming monitor.

Myself I have a 2k monitor with 144 HZ.
Asus Rog Swift PG278Q, Still costs at this time 700 / 900€.
For gaming I would always chose a monitor with 144 hz. Currently to my knowledge there are no 144hz monitor with 4k. I do know there are 100hz monitors curved with 4k, but like funflyz said, these screens cost a bomb and for a normal standard game u already need to have a huge PC to be able to run this kind of resolution on a decent FPS.

My 2k screen with 144hz already takes a lot from my GTX 1080 and I am not able to run every game on ultra or high with a steady 144fps, ( depending on the games )

If you are still really only interested in a 4k monitor with 144hz ( in my opinion u should always have 144hz for gaming ) then there are 2 screens coming out soon : Acer Predator XB272 & Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ

Kind Regards,

I already have a HDR monitor. I have recently built my i7 7700k system which supports 4k. I already have 4kl tv though. I know it will cost me on electricity but I'll handle it. It won't run every day

Yeah I recently built a powerhouse of a system 2 months back. I have Gigabyte Radeon rx 480 gb right now. I have already ordered a Titan Xp. It should reach me by Tuesday hopefully. I render and I play games. I need a 4k monitor.

I got a little confused. Are you taking about the monitor at $2000 or the monthly bill here?

If I am not wrong it's a 2k monitor right? I found this one on Amazon for $750.

I could do with Acer Gaming laptop 2014's model. XB280HK to be precise

Still, if you've got cash to spare and want to render in 4K then a 4K monitor isn't the worst investment?

I have been running 4k monitor with my current pc from 2013-2014. (was not cheap back then)
Can do all current games on max settings with 60fps average. I love it, but the only downside
is that the hack menu becomes really small :P

Yes the hack menu does not scale well with 3840x2160 works great with 3440x1440 though.

You know I recently bought an HDR-monitor and it is adjusted to the system i7 with 7700k,and it supports 4K. I have at least 4kl TV . it (https://freebaccarat.info/play-mahjong-solitaire/) 
. I mean, I know it's gonna cost me money because of the power, but I can handle it. He won't work every day, will it?

Highly recommended going ultra wide instead of 4K. 3440x1440 is amazing for gaming

I completely agree. Now i have Gigabyte Aorus AD27QD (https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.de%2FGIGABYTE-AORUS-AD27QD-27Zoll-5cm%2Fdp%2FB07N4PZMQL&psig=AOvVaw36-FjCl9dLVraPxIhm97MC&ust=1593111785322000&source=images&cd=vfe&ved=0CAIQjRxqFwoTCIjP5YKSm-oCFQAAAAAdAAAAABAJ) and I see no reason to change to a 4k monitor
