Should I stick with curved monitor for gaming?

Hello!! 

I'm using a CF397 Samsung with a 60hz refresh rate and 8bit depth its been a good little monitor 32" curved was a black Friday special. I wanted to move on to a gamming monitor now knowing a little more. While this is a finr monitor I can tell when I'm trying to run higher resolution games and so on my little CF397 is doing its best. I wanted to ask if its worth it to continue with a curved monitor for gamming or go back to flat? 

 

 looking to spend max $400 on something around 140hrz and hopefully same 32" if any advice I would love some.
