Recently I purchased a new Ultra Wide monitor as I am Software Engineer by trade and work from home. I've been doing that now for 8+ years and also provide myself all of my peripherals, monitor, desk, chair and office. About the same time ago I purchase a Dell Ultrasharp that has run like a champ from job to job and StarCraft II to Rage 2 over those 8 years. I recently started a new role at Salesforce and decided that after 8 years it was time for a new monitor. In the end I went with a fresh new Dell Ultrasharp Ultra Wide and it's a dream. It's not something i'd recommend for gaming but if you are looking for a new gaming display Digital Foundry has a great video guide you need to watch.

Digital Foundry makes a few recommendations starting at the best overall gaming 1080p monitor that has a great low price to some superb 4K displays. One thing I've noticed is that if you want to get a very high refresh rate at 140hz - 240hz it's easier to find 1080p displays. You can find a great refresh rate with higher resolution but your options begin to be more limited. That said, keeping the price of a great PC in mind and pushing as many frames as possible 1080p isn't a bad choice for an incredible display.

Let me know what kind of display you are using in the comments and any tech specs you can spare such as size, resolution and refresh rate/hz.
