I am going to build a PC using an i7 8700k and a rtx 2080ti.
I was going to go for a 2k 144hz monitor as that seems like the best middle ground. I could get 60fps going 4k or 144 plus 1080. I was wondering what your guys opinions were?
and what monitors you would recommend.
Is curved a good option?
and for size, 24inch or 27?
I dont really have a budget, i'm just looking for high quality and know you guys will have better opinions than mine.
Many thanks guys :)

edit: feel free to post links too, the more the better. I like simple designs but not necessary

What's best also depends on the types of games you play. If you play a lot of competitive shooters then either 1440p 144-165hz or even 1080p 240hz.
If you play more slower paced/story driven games/rpgs then 4k could be better.
I personally prefer slower refreshrate with high quality image over high refreshrate with lower quality image.
Just make sure it has G-sync or that it's a a Freesync panel which Nvidia supports.

1440P 27" is pretty much ideal for that setup.

So get a nice 27" G-SYNC IPS 1440P 144Hz (165Hz) Monitor and have fun.
Thanks for the help,
I can't tell if i'm just looking in the wrong place or being plain stupid. The monitors seem to only have 4ms response times. Is that to do with the IPS screen?
I know that other monitors have a 1ms response time. To be honest I would like to see somebody see the difference but just making sure :)
also any recommendations?

That's IPS.

I have both IPS (4ms) and TN (1ms) and I can't notice any difference in gaming. ;)

TN is the fastest. If you really care about competitive games. Getting a 1080p 240hz 1ms would be the best. TN doesn't look great, people still go with it for a few ms.
