4K seems extremely limited at the moment, so would going 2K still be worth it, from 1080P

I really hate the K naming convention. 2K should be 1920x1080. Anyway, I'd vote for 2560x1440. 4K is still young so I'd wait until you can get a 60Hz IPS monitor and we have video cards better suited for it.

Oh right, one not-really-thought about thing regarding 4K monitors: they'll be god awful to use with Windows due to MS being terrible at understanding DPI scaling.
