Can't recommend a monitor as I mainly work with cheap ips panels, but colorimeters will do similar job. You don't need to invest 300 pounds to get better results. I bought mine for 70 and does great job. The difference only will show up in software. I would suggest using dispcalGUI as you can manually configure it to your setup. The longer you let it run the better the accuracy

Budget?  Resolution for new monitor?  Location?  Other pc specs?

 

I can personally vouch for the Datacolor Spyder lineup, easy to use and you can get a reliable calibration.

budget is flexible can save up so 700 USD (preferably less but can do) and 100-200 USD for calibrator i have a msi gaming gtx 980 and an i7 4790k resolution depends on what i can get in that price range ultra wide would be nice

I have a spyder pro 5 which is really good. It wasn't too expensive either. Monitor wise if your looking at an ultrawide monitor then IPS is the way to go especially if you want colour accuracy. If you can get one then I used to own the AOC U34 ultrawide monitor which was awesome. The only issue with watching movies on an ultrawide is having to deal with black bars on all four sides of any movies that have the black bars coded into them (which is most of them)
