Hi,
Wanted to buy Large Format Monitor for friend and i have no knowledge at it.
Cheapest Rebub i find at Newegg LG 32LS33A-5B 32" for $195 and have no idea what to look.

He's going use it for construction blueprints-drawings and hook up with cheapest PC.

Is it fair one?
What's the minimum system requirements (graphic also) for this kind of monitor ?
Will Dual core or Core2Duo PC with on board graphics support it?
Anything more to be attention ?
Thanks.

What's the purpose behind a larger monitor? Unless you also get a monitor that also has a higher resolution than what he's got now, one that simply has a physically larger screen probably wouldn't do him much good, and in fact would probably look worse.

At any given resolution, you get the same amount of viewable "real estate" no matter what physical size the screen is. In other words, a 1920 x 1080 32" monitor won't show any more of a construction drawing than a 1920 x 1080 23" monitor will - the image will just be a more "spread out" (and therefore also fuzzier at any given distance) on a larger screen with the same resolution. ETA: If, as amenx notes, the idea is to display the drawings to a large audience, for example, that would be OK, since the greater viewing distance will reduce the apparent "fuzziness".) But if the idea is to actually display "more stuff" on the screen at normal desk-working distance, you need a monitor with higher resolution, like the one Gunbuster linked to.

The monitor's resolution is also what that determines the necessary graphics capability. The physical size of the monitor is irrelevant to the computer. The CPU is also irrelevant to the physical size of the monitor and more or less irrelevant to the displayable resolution. The same GPU, whether it's onboard or a discrete GPU, will drive a 40" 1920x1080 monitor just the same as a 23" incher. ETA: You'd have to check the specific PC/motherboard of a given system to determine the maximum resolution the on-board graphics unit can handle, it's not determined by the CPU itself.

So is better to buy HDTV instead Large Screen Display?
Will 4k display 1080p images also in case 4k won't be appreciated?

Yes IMHO 4K screens can do a good enough job at 1080p. It will be a little worse that native and someone is bound to chime in with their elite e-peen to poo-poo it buy yeah it works fine.

My 4k monitor looks better @ 1080p (text) than my plasma TV that is a 1080p. I am not too familiar but I think it has something to do with chroma 444 or something like that. But text looks sharper on my 4k monitor at 1080p. For work 4k is really good.
