I'm contemplating getting an Xbox One X. If I do, I probably need a new monitor to see the improvements :)
I have an old Samsung Syncmaster P2350, 23", 1920x1080.

I try to do my homework before I buy anything, but all the possibilities is making me a bit dizzy. I don't need it to work as a tv, around 28" would be nice, and I can't afford a top monitor that checks all the boxes. So, what would you prioritize?

HDR?
4K?
Freesync? (Xbox One X is supposedly supporting Freesync 2, does that mean getting a monitor with Freesync 1 is pointless? )
HDMI 2.0 (as opposed to HDMI 1.4)

The monitor will almost exclusively be used for Xbox gaming, mainly PC2.

4k for sure,HDR is good but nothing beats resolution imo.
Samsung 40 uhd,Ps4 pro,Sony soundbar. around $1600 au.
