In my local stores there are 2 versions of this monitor.

I think the only difference between them is just the panels.
Q3279VWF is MVA (185 euro) Contrast ratio : 3000:1
Q3279VWFD8 is IPS (210 euro) Contrast ratio : 1200:1

Other specifications are all same I think
2k panel, 75 hz, Freesync, 5 ms, DP, HDMI, DVI, VGA

Which one should I prefer?
It will be for general use. Trying to learn coding from some video tutorials etc. I rarerly play games.
I have a gtx 1070 as graphics card.
My budget for monitor is around 200-250 euro max.

I'm also open for suggestions. Is there any other better alternative around this price lvl.
I can go down to 27 inch also if there is a better value monitor.

An experienced coder/programmer friend give me those advices:
1-Buy screen as big as possible
2-Dont buy curved, prefer flat
3-2k is better, 4k can tire your eyes more.
4-Refresh rate isnt that much imortant.
 
IPS just has better colors compared to a VA. Since you're not photo/video editing you don't need to worry about getting the "best" colors. GO with the cheaper VA. The colors are nearly the same but VA has better contrast, which means deeper blacks and whiter whites. None of this however will affect you while coding.
