After some research on monitors I still need help coming to a conclusion (or choice) on purchasing a 27 or 32" monitor, both are 1440. Pixel density is greater on a 27 vs. a 32", and I want to know if a 27 would be easier for text or the larger would partly be the same regarding noticing the pixels. The smoothness is what I'm after but at the same time would like a larger screen. Is there a tradeoff?
 
Not really, 32" doesn't make the text blurry at all. I have a 32" and I read comics, word documents, and various other text documents all the time without feeling like it's blurred or jagged. I also have a 27" and a 24" (though both are at 1080p) but I prefer my main being the 32" since I have much more room for my content. As far as any tradeoffs, just double check the reviews about ghosting and what not. Meaning some monitors have a ghosting effect where when you scroll the page moving the text you'll see small little after-shadows following the text. This corresponds with response times, so make sure the monitor has good response times.

A 32" screen at normal desk sitting distance will really fill your field of vision, I never liked having anything over 27" as a computer screen since to look at the sides you will need to move your eyes and head too much. The benefit over a 27" is that text can be larger. It won't look jagged at 1440 resolution.

I was but now kinda am considering a 21:9 at 1080, possibly 1440. I want the 1440 but with the extra aspect ratio I'm iffy if my Vega 56 8GB could run it effectively, World of Warcraft is centered around my decision.
