How to chose the perfect PC monitor for my XBox One S?

Hi guys!

I am going to buy a PC Monitor, both to display Streaming movies coming from my laptop and to play with my XBox One S.

I have a limited budget (max 400€, incl delivery, or even less if possible). However I would like to have the best gaming experience for that price.
I played Assassin's Creeds Origins on my mother's 4K TV set and it was just gorgeous!

Here are my questions then:
- What would be the lowest resolution acceptable to enjoy the potential of the XBox One S?
Does the XBox One S support WQHD (2560x1440)?
- What shall I consider for the sound output?
Any monitor that has Built-in speakers or a 3.5mm jack connection should be OK, right?
- Are the other criteria (response time, connectivity other than HDMI, frequency , etc.) also really important?

I found the samsung u28e590d which seems to match all what I am looking for. Any feedback with this monitor? Happy
Thank you so much guys for any light you can shed here!

I can't shop for you. But it's clear you like the 4K TV so that's what you want.

As to 1080p, I find that great at almost all sizes.

Thx for this!

Thx very much mate!

What do you think of a WQHD (2560x1440) screen here?
They are much cheaper than 4K, and of better quality than Full HD.

However I don't know if the XBone One S can handle the WQHD (2560x1440)?
It would make no sense to buy a WQHD (2560x1440) screen if the XBox can't and downgrades me to Full HD instead Laugh
