Need Recommendation for a Monitor

I have two old Mac products - a Mac mini (late 2012, 16gb ram, 1TB SSD) and a MacBook Pro (8,1 late 2011, 8gb ram, 500gb SSD) that I will be keeping; I have upgraded them since my old desktop is getting long in the tooth (iMac 7,1 A1225!) and I'll look to be selling it soon.

So, I need recommendations on a monitor, and here is my question: I'd like to take advantage of the Thunderbolt capability of the mini and the MacBook Pro, but since I do not do any heavy graphic lifting with my computers other than video viewing, and the Thunderbolt version on these is the original version, is there any benefit in me seeking a Thunderbolt-capable monitor now, or should I wait until my hardware gets into the latest decade and get a thunderbolt monitor then?!

My budget is around $300-$400 dollars, and of course, that range or less is preferred.

Thanks in advance of any recommendations,

Ken
