[Advice] What monitor(s) do you use?

Obviously no matter the set up you have, it's gotta have a good monitor to show off the game itself: so which monitors do you guys use? Ips or VA? 1080 or 1440p? Curved, ultra wide, or two monitors side by side?

I'm looking for one myself but I'm at a loss. I want the best bang for my buck, but I also want the most crisp and best looking monitor that'll work with my egpu, and give me the best performance too.

So far I'm looking at an IPS display, 1440p, 27" with Freesync. Got one lined up, but still want options honestly. 

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.
