Lenovo Thinkpad P50 - recommendation for monitor (docking station with monitors)

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad P50 with ThinkPad Workstation Dock. It is now paired with a old monitor and I wan't to invest in a good monitor. 

 

I use it for different task at work, including regular office (word, excel ...), web browsing, digital drawing, photo editing, video editing (both HD and  4K 3840 x 2160) and viewing VR models in Sketchfab. 

 

I'm looking at ThinkVision monitors and I wonder if whether HD, UHD or 4K is the right choice, I would be happy to get recommendations? Is it capable of 4K?

 

If I buy two monitors, do they have to be similar regarding definition and aspect ratio?

 

Specifications:

Lenovo Thinkpad P50 

Windows 10

Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1505M v5 @ 2.80GHz

32GB RAM

64-bit

Intel(R) HD Graphics P530

 

Regards,

Ron

There is no right choice for everyone.  I will say that right now, I am using a ThinkVision X1 (4k) and it looks really good to me.  I really like the sharp text.  The speakers aren't great, which is common for thin monitors.  The viewing angles are good.  I removed the stand and am using a VESA-mounted stand, which I like.
