My birthday is coming up, and at the moment I'm borrowing my guitar teacher's monitor. Naturally, I'm after a monitor. I'm looking for a cheap 1440p monitor, and I'd love a curved one. I don't really mind about refresh rate. I think it's a bit ambitious, but my budget is around £200, maybe a tad more. If it's too much I'll just go for a normal 1440p monitor. Thanks!
 
curved one starts at doubled price.

Something else to consider. I may be shopping all the wrong places, but from what I can tell the 1440 monitors commonly cost the same, or more than "4K" ones do.

I cannot comment on whether scaling a 4k monitor to 1440(2K) will perform the same.
