Quick qns....if I am looking to get a year sub for PS+, more worth it if I get on my US PSN acct right and that allows me to play online w my Asia account too

And to do so I'll need the Amazon gift card to purchase from PSN store directly? Are there any cheaper avenues?

Make sure got 2 hdmi ports on monitor. Best if got built in speakers. Alternative use bluetooth speakers with aux function. So both pc and ps4 will have sound.

If PS4, get a 1080p monitor. If PS4pro a 4K monitor would be better.

I ran the PS4pro on a 1440p monitor and you can see it isn't as sharp as it should be. Recently added a 4k monitor and the difference is very noticeable.

As for inputs, one HDMI enough, assuming the PC can connect over Displayport.

As for audio, ensure monitor has some way to pass through the audio from HDMI. Mine has a 3.5mm output jack. But I also use audio out from the DualShock

I'm running a Samsung monitor with display port for pc, hdmi for ps4. Pc speakers connected to monitor audio out 3.5mm port so sound is from whichever screen my monitor is displaying.

Something to consider is vsync and g sync. PS4 uses one of it and nivida or amd uses one of it too.. so it depends on your PC configuration..

Mine is ps4 only but I still can get 1440p right?

G sync and free sync are for pc gaming only as it uses displayport. The ps4 v sync is just a normal feature and works with any monitor on hdmi. Not related at all.

Monitor got 22 to 49 inches one.... so if you talking 500-700 we are looking at 24 to 27 inch range with different specs.

Dell s2419H is a good standard 1080p 60hz monitor with dual hdmi inputs, built-in speakers and audio output. It also cost significantly less than your budget.
