There aren't that many 16:9 30"+ screens about, most of the high end gaming monitors are 27" models or their ultra-wide versions (34-35") which are the same height but wider.

Right now we're a few months away from an entirely new technology coming to monitors - HDR. Screens like the Asus PG35VQ and Acer Predator X27/Asus PG27UQ have all been announced but aren't quite available yet. That's definitely the way to go if you want all the bells and whistles.

The very best monitor right now is the Dell UP3017Q - an OLED model:

The best monitor we've ever reviewed at techradar is the LG 34UC97. This gorgeous workhorse features a response time of 5 milliseconds (ms), a contrast ratio of 1,000 to 1, and a refresh rate capable of drawing 61 images per second (or 61Hz).

The UP3017Q blows these specs out of the water

the bad news is that it is very, very expensive.

Gaming or best monitor... not necesarily the same thing,m though OLED should be better than LED in terms of motion handling - its just TVs that have issues with motion trying to get 24p sources displayed smoothly on a screen that has such a good pixel change time.,

Anyway, new monitors for gaming are coming out too. Still really expensive!

It's far from just that. Does the dell have any strobing functionality to reduce persistence of vision effects for example?

They're relatively mainstream ones that accept HDR signals but don't have the hardware to reproduce them. I'd expect the genuine HDR ones mentioned above to be around £1500-2000 (or more) instead of £470.
