Because I can't find it, and I've spent wayyyy too much time trying to figure out the ideal configuration after my recent office remodel.

I don't think the specs I'm looking for are unrealistic, but I can't seem to find a monitor that has everything! Here's what I'm specifically looking for:

*32" curved monitor
*4k (3840x2160 or higher resolution)
*VESA or equivalent monitor mount to get rid of the junk boomerang/deskhog mount
*100hz refresh rate preferred though would settle for 75hz.
*<$500/ea

So far, the closest I've found is the Samsung UR59C 32" 16:9 4K Curved LCD Monitor, BUT it doesn't have the vesa mounts. :( If there's a different mounting system that would work, these monitors would probably be the way to go, but I just don't know that much about aftermarket mounts.

Both monitors would be pushed by a GTX 1070, which I assume would be adequate since I don't play a ton of games and would mainly use the monitors for work/watching movies.

I've looked everywhere, but have come up empty. Anyone know of any monitors that match all these specs?

It's also only a 60Hz panel.

4K of any size, 32" or otherwise + >60Hz is not going to be <$500.

From your list, if you want 4K, you'll have to pick 2 or 3 of 4 other factors.
You can have 4K, VESA and <$500, but it won't be 32"/Curved or >60Hz.

4K monitors with >60Hz refresh didn't even exist until quite recently, and as of now there are only two or three monitors that offer this and they cost >$1000. What you're looking for isn't realistic.

Why do you need a 75/100 Hz monitors for movies/work?

Nonsense!! I want my cake and eat it to! :( lol...I guess at this point my best bet is probably just to hold out for a 2nd used microboard monitor...of course since they don't make them anymore (at least from what I can tell based on the M340CLZ model), looking for another microboard might as well be a snipe hunt...

Yes, it is. Acer Predator x27 is 120 or 144hz (cant remember wich one), 4k, IPs, HDR 1000 (i think 1000, or atleast theres an asus one that is and costs the same 2k) and costs 2k. But theres also the acer nitro (i think its nitro) 27 inch, 4k, 120hz, for 1000, almost the same but lower HDR specs. Nobody says HDR in games is good, its usualy faked in-game, so it might not be worth it.
