For FPS games  one with 144hz would be best option, for others 1440p.

my recommendation, 1080p 144hz is a good sweet spot for the rx 480 (i have the 290x performs similarly to the 480). 1440p is gonna push the card a little too much tbh.

If you already have an RX480 4GB, get a 1080p panel. You won't be playing AAA games at max settings at 1440p with decent frame rates with that GPU. I really like the looks of Dell monitors but I don't think they offer a 1080p monitor with 100+Hz refresh rates (which you want for the best gaming experience you can get with your GPU) and FreeSync (wich you also want) so go with the monitor you like as long as it has the following specs:

1080p

at least 75Hz refresh rate (I would recommend 144Hz, though)

FreeSync (this syncs your refresh rate to your FPS to prevent tearing)

lower than 5-7ms response time

if you can find one: IPS panel (not sure if they are any IPS panels at 1080p 144Hz Freesync) --> this will give you much better colour reproduction and viewing angles than TN (the other common option)

Save for a little longer and get the Asus MG279Q.  It has every feature you could possibly want in a good monitor and it's only $50 over your budget.  Bonus is that it's FreeSync and you have an AMD GPU.  Here are the highlights: 27" 1440p IPS, 144hz w/FreeSync and 4ms response time, little or no input lag and I believe it also has ULMB if you disable FreeSync (which eliminates motion blur from frame persistence).

 

edit: the reason you want this is that it future proofs you, FreeSync will help with any games where you have frame-rate issues and for competitive games you'll be able to run 120hz + ULMB.  Then when you get a newer GPU (or a new computer) you will already have a 1440p monitor.  Games aren't natively running even 1440p textures, so native 4k games is still *many* years off.

ULMB is only on G-Sync monitors AFAIK. I don't think ASUS's FreeSync monitors have any equivalent.

I could have sworn AMD had some equivalent with a different name, but I'd have to go look into it to be sure.
