    I was is the same boat, needed something to connect to my MBP 2017 but also wanted to ability to use it for casual gaming. I ended up going with the Dell P2715Q and bought a USB-C to Display Port cable from Ebay.

    As Marc's article points out, it's in the "bad zone" for PPI (163.2) but if you stick with the non-scaled settings in OSX it's pretty hard to tell. I find the highest resolution is a a bit small, but when designing I'm mostly zoomed in anyway so it's not a big deal. On the flip side, the lower non-scaled resolution is a bit big.

    I wasn't able to find a perfect monitor for both design and gaming, but the Dell comes close enough.
