Looking for the best 4k HDR monitor for Xbox one x. Any suggestions?

I don't need it to be g-sync compatible because I won't be using it on PC until next year... UNLESS there is a good one under 700$ CAD.

The ones I've found so far either don't support hdr 10, dont have 10 bit color or jabs a terrible response time...

There's a big difference between what you'll need for that 1st year versus next year with a PC. I think your budget precludes anything worthwhile at4k as does the PS4.... right now a 1080 Ti is a bit inadequate for 4k ... I dont see the Xbox doing well there. Even at 1440p, anything I'd
recommend would be over your budget.

Have you take a look at LG 32UD99 ?
Think its gonna be over budget. $952 Freesync ... 60 hz gonna be OK ? 5 ms **advertised** response time

The 27UK850 is slightly more affordable but still over budget

Might be worth a trip south of the border for this one which is under budget but only in US dollars. $620 w/ 20% off coupon = < $500 USD. twice that in the Great White North

Here's the one I want (or Acer equivalent w/ same panel) ... but at $2500 USD, not gonna happen any time soon :)
