If you want to see on your monitor the color gamut from your printer, sRGB space will not be enough, you will need extended gamut.

Dell monitors with "M" suffix aren´t extended gamut aware.

I would go for U2413 monitor and do not worry about calibration as they are individually factory calibrated usually good enough for most practical applications.
