I have two 27" 4K monitors and the text on some applications that don't scale well (Lightwave) is quite small.  However, I have the displays mounted on articulated arms so I can bring them up close to me if needed.

I think a 32" wouldn't be a problem.

Yes! V2 seems to be the better way :)

PATH TRACING ON SURFACES did the trick.  The lighting detail is much better in the shaded part of my render.  Thanks Oshyan!!

Thanks for your input, Doug! Very much appreciated. It's always a mixed feeling, spending a lot on hardware. I can do without, but you only live once, and why not work pleasantly. And I get some important potential clients and need to show stuff. A 32 inch presentation will probably pull them over faster than a presentation on a 24 inch  ;)
I'll sleep over this...

Hey Ulco, I have two 'larger' monitors:

I also am a win 7 user and found the scaling of text on the 31" (actually 31.5 diagonal) not to be an issue. On the 43" display TG scales ok but sometimes 'glitches' with slightly overlapped text. I suspect those brave enough to render on win 10 wouldn't have the scaling issues. Some applications like Houdini have a preference setting for larger res monitors. I use the TESmart KVM 4 port switcher as not all switchers can handle 4k and it's a great bargain at around $120 US.

Lots of 'Brand' names are manufactured by the same factories and the quality control  is reportedly uneven. LG seems like an industry innovator and I'm very impressed with their products, we also have a LG 65" OLED monitor that is simply stunning.

While 'Big' isn't always 'Better' it certainly is a joy to work with all that screen space and going 'back' would be painful. I recommend Nvidia cards, and the 4GB 1050's are about $150 US these days.

Here is a budget 4K capable non-gaming card: Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030 Low Profile 2G GDDR5.

This is a budget card and able to output 4K

Thanks. I've read that you may get into 'trouble' with resolution; like letters getting to small. You'd have to compensate that again software-wise. And my monitor is hooked on an Aten 22csu KVM usb switch, so I can use two machines on the one screen. That needs to work also.
Good that you mention 4K ready, I have to check what I have. And my 32-bit online machine (both win 7 and XP on 2 partitions) also has to work on that combination  :P
