Hello NCX.

I am looking for a gaming monitor (of course..) currently for my ps4, but I considering buying one that will suit me for the next gen.

The problem with that is with g-sync and freesync... I can't know what will be on the next gen... what are your thoughts on that?

Anyway, what are your recommendations for a 1080p and 4k gaming monitors with a reasonable budget 400$-450$ max

The most important things to me are image quality and low input lag. the rest is bonus for me.

Both Microsoft and Sony use AMD graphics cards in their consoles, and Free-Sync is much cheaper to implement, so I doubt we'll see a console with G-Sync in the future unless Sony switches to Nvidia with the PS5, but I doubt they will.  Sync tech support is also pretty limited since most games run at 30pfs, plus most Free-Sync monitors only support 40-60 or 75hz Free-Sync ranges.  Games which run in the 50-60fps range like Call of Duty will benefit, as well games with unlocked frame rates such as Monster Hunter and Shadow of the Colossus, but I doubt Sony will add Free-Sync support to the PS4 Pro.

If the 400-450$ is in US dollars get the Dell P2715Q 4K IPS panel (review links).  It can be considered delay free, is more accurate than the competing LG monitors, has a height adjustable stand, 4x USB 3.0 and often sells for less than 400$.  The next step up image quality wise is the Viewsonic XG2700-4K which has nearly perfect preset color accuracy and Free-Sync, but it sells for over 500$.
