Price limit is £1500 but its a less is more situation, 1440p or 4k, High frame rate is a massive bonus.

Then I would suggest dropping the HDR requirement because

  1. Content isn't quite there yet
  2. The current monitors that are HDR compatible lack the brightness to really make it work (except that Dell one Linus reviewed recently).
  3. HDR content can still look great even on a non-HDR screen, see: https://linustechtips.com/main/profile/359972-myurizaki/?status=172263&type=status

If you want faster refresh rates, it'd be better to get a fast refresh rate monitor now. If you want visual quality, then I can defer to the list they have at http://www.pcgamer.com/what-hdr-means-for-pc-gaming/

The reason why im looking in to HDR is cause i want to push my work and i cant really do HDR work on a none HDR display :|

if waiting till early next year will yield better results then so be it :| but i was looking at the PG348Q from Asus

Dell UP2718Q is the only HDR10 monitor I know of at the moment.

Just so you're aware, part of the HDR requirement is having a display with high brightness. Otherwise you're just getting a high-resolution-color monitor. Dolby Vision for instance recommends that you master the content for 4,000 nits.  As it stands, very few displays even come close to half that.

 

Although I had a look at that Dell monitor and it's well within your price budget: http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/accessories/apd/210-amlm

 

EDIT: (wrong monitor, stupid names)

 

EDIT 2: http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-ultrasharp-27-4k-hdr-monitor-up2718q/apd/210-amvp/monitors-monitor-accessories

 

There it is, it's $1550.
